Have you seen this before? It has me baffled.

Hey y'all! It's August and I'm not sure where the time is going. July just slipped by. My hubby and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on the 12th and our grandson will be turning a year old the 23rd of this month! I was going to have a give-away last month to celebrate our 25th anniversary and even created a polish with the wonderful Julie, from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer, but then we took a trip up north to get together with some friends from one of my pain support groups and I've been struggling since we got back home with the pain. I started getting muscle spasms in a new place just before we left on our trip and they've gradually been getting worse. The last couple of days, I've noticed that my right hip has decided to start lending it's voice into this chorus and today decided that I've had enough and am going to do something fun despite it.  I'll be doing the give-away next week and will be turning into a combo Belated Anniversary/Birthday Give-Away. :D  Now,  let's get on with what we're here to do, shall we? :)

 I stripped off my old polish to find this.

Can you see the black lines on my index finger and middle finger nails?  I have absolutely no idea what it is or where it came from.  I'll try to get a better photo up here in just a bit so you can have a better look at whatever it is.  I was just in a hurry for y'all to have a look at whatever that is and to see if maybe someone else knew whatever it is.  To me, it almost looks at if someone took a marker to my nail.  Looking at it from the underside of my nail, you can't tell it's even there unless I hold my finger at a certain angle.  If any of you nail techs out there have any ideas, could you please let me know.  Growing my nails out another few weeks and clipping or filing it off  will be the plan for now, unless a tech thinks it's a medical problem that needs to be addressed asap.  I do have a appointment with my primary care doctor on August 21st and if it is still there, will show it to her, just in case it's something medical.

Anyway, that is what has been up with me the last few weeks.  I hope all has been well with y'all.  Don't forget, I will be starting a give-away next week!  Have a great day y'all and as always, thank you for spending a few minutes of your day with me. :) Huggles!

6:23 pm---I replaced the photo above with one that was of better quality and have added this second one.  Anyone have any ideas what it might be?  I have a little irritation going on at the cuticle too.  :(  Not quite sure what I did to that.

D'oh, it would have been nice if I had remembered to include the photo, huh?  lol


  1. For starters, congrats on that 25th Anniversary.

    Secondly, check this link out and read number two. I think this is similar to what you might be experiencing.

    I am still browsing around your pages, but looks great from what I see :) Can I be your nail groupie now? lol

    1. Nail groupie. Now that makes me giggle. lol

      Thank you for the link. I'm not sure about the vitamins. The doctor has me on Vitamin D and I take Calcium since I'm lactose intolerant, but I suppose maybe my K could be low? If it's still there on the 21st when I go in for my check-up, I'll have her take a look at it and see what she says.

  2. My nails peel across the tips sometimes. When I remove polish, sometimes a little gets between those layers, and will look similar to this.

    1. Thank you Jenna. That is probably most likely what happened since the doc said it didn't look like anything to worry about. She is sending me to have my vitamin levels checked again though, just to be on the safe side, since I do usually tend to be low on Vit D.


I love hearing from y'all and will respond (eventually, lol) to all comments left here.
