My issues with onycholysis - why I haven't posted much or Mentality burns, the gift that keeps on giving.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I mentioned in my OPI DS Glamour post about my nails having lifted, this post is about those troubles. Horrible naked nail pictures ahead....
Since April 2014 I have experienced onycholysis - severe lifting of nails - three times. The first time was cause unknown at the time, assumption was that psoriasis had triggered it, although looking back I think it may have related to Mentality nail polish as I had used it a lot prior to the problems arising. The second time my nails rejected the use of gel polish - I don't know if it was gel polish not fully cured or if I just have extra sensitive nail beds since the first problems. This most recent bout happened after I wore a brand new blue nail polish for the first time in October - apparently blues can have a pigment affecting nickel sensitive people. Guess lucky old me, already being sensitive to nickel and having nail bed problems scored a jackpot.

My nails have been growing back and reattaching nicely - just my middle finger being a bit stubborn still.
What will come next is the delightful horizontal onycholysis ridges - the very same ones I had only just got rid of when it all happened again!
Hopefully my nail mojo will return :(
