I have done my best to keep my nails covered with sticker decals and avoid picking, but unfortunately, I still have splits near the tips of my index fingernails.
Last night I trimmed my nails very short when they were soft and wet to prevent breakage, then oiled them up and slept. These are my nails in the morning.
On the upside, the nail splits have not broken off much, so when I wear nail stickers over them, the stickers are flat and smooth and no longer have different levels.
I am so close to growing these splits out. I just have to completely avoid using my index fingers at all to pick or scratch at things.
