I think that anxiety fueled this habit, and my anxiety lessened a great deal once I got to college. Just being somewhere new and having more control of my life was a huge part of that. More directly though, I was put in the middle of a dorm room with two fairly feminine girls. Didn’t really feel appropriate to sit around picking at my toenails anymore. Hehehe. Not only that, but I used this opportunity started wearing some cute glittery polish to motivate me to stop messing with my nails. When my nails were short and somewhat ragged, I wasn’t able to wear a solid coat of polish that didn’t look awful, but the amorphousness and subtlety of light glitter looked alright. Also, it’s hard as hell to chip off. Now my nails are hard, grow considerably fast, and are extremely easy and quick to paint! It’s a simple pleasure, but below the surface, as cheesy as it may sound, it’s also a proud symbol of combating anxiety. 12 months ago
