I had great natural nails when I was in my 20's and 30's and did alot of typing. I did my nails once a week with Charles of the Ritz polish and it lasted the entire week. Every Thursday night was nail night. Now, they're hopeless and I feel nail polish makes them worse. I guess age, hormonal changes and meds ruined them. I'm also on disability, but, I use a computer.
