I just realized how the title of the post can be slightly... disturbing! But that is exactly what you are going to get: A naked nail and a dry finger! Quick! Cover your eyes!!!
Again, I am reaching out to all the knowledgeable ladies out there in hopes of solving another nail problem...
The skin around the nail of my ring finger started to get insanely dry over a month ago. The skin is constantly peeling and very sensitive. (Totally random: I got a paper cut over that spot last week and thought I was going to die. It was the most painful thing EVER!) It has also spread to the cuticle! See how the cuticle isn't even attached (kind of) on the right side.
Can you see what I'm talking about in the pictures? I tried my best to capture it.
Yes, I use 100% acetone when I remove my polish. However, this has happened to me twice before I got into nail polish and before I used acetone as often as I do now. And it's always been the same finger. But don't ask me what I did back then to make this go away because I have no idea. LOL! Over the past month I've made a conscious effort to get my finger back to normal. I have applied extra Lush Lemony Flutter on that area every night when I use it on my cuticles. I have been using SkinMD's lotion all throughout the day and apply extra lotion on that spot. I wash my hands IMMEDIATELY after using acetone on that finger.
I have seen no improvements. I don't know what to do anymore. Any suggestions? Ideas? Tips? Or feel free to just comment and tell me how ugly my naked nail is and that it shouldn't work at a nail strip-club...
