    Smile Uneven smile line on nails

    I came across this site when I came back from my holiday in Majorca. I went to my daughters salon to have my gel nails removed. After removing the gel covering my daughter was upset to see that the white of some of my nails were running into the pink. She insisted that she would not apply gel again until I had visited my doctor. I hate wasting doctors time and I sat looking at my nails which I had always been proud of worrying and thinking what had I done differently. Then I remembered that on holiday I had forgotten to take my nylon floss sticks. I have a problem with food getting stuck in my teeth. So my nails were used to pick the food from the gaps. The pulling on the nails had caused the nail bed to separate from the nail and obviously bacteria got underneath. I could see that the only nails affected were the ones I had used to dislodge the food. I have now gone back to using my dental floss sticks and the problem has disappeared. My daughter says that so many people use the nails as a tool and this is why they have problems. Hope this helps anyone who has a similar problem.
