Default An unexpected but pleasant side effect

Aside from feeling healthier and pulling the old clothes out of the closet because my current ones are getting too loose on me, I noticed something yesterday that really made me smile.

My nails look FABULOUS!

I guess eating healthy, exercising, and making sure to take my multivitamin every day had really made a difference. I was never a nail biter, but I could never grow nails to any real length at all. But now, my natural nails are as long as tips I have had put on in the past, and are also nice and strong. I think I am going to treat myself to a real manicure next weekend. Will be nice to have french tips without actual tips!

Oooh that's nice! Just the excuse for a new bottle of nail polish to celebrate your progress
I find when i'm "eating clean" my skin looks better-- it's all connected!
