I know Alex is really adventurous with her nails, but being your low-maintenance buddy, I have a question…

So just in case you’d forgotten, fashion week is upon us, that moment when you have so much work that the last thing you should think about is get dressed up and yet, you’re going to be freaking out about it every second.

In those moments, not having to think about your nail polish chipping is one very welcome luxury.

That’s why I was thinking I could maybe do a gel.

BUT here is the thing. My nails are so fragile that just listening to Bruno Mars at the Super Bowl made them break (yeah, I’m one of the few people in the world that didn’t LOVE his performance). They are brittle, have ridges, in other words, they are uncool.

Will they ever recover from a gel? What do you think?
