The Toe Nail Striketh

The day I've been waiting for has finally arrived: my black toenail nastiness has finally separated from my toe. I took my sock off after working overnight and realized I had a 5mm gap between my lovely painted toenail and my nailbed. So, being the masochistic wench that I am, I pulled on the separated nail.

And it popped right off.

No pain. No wiggling. Just off.

Underneath was an ethereally pink, soft, new neo-nail. It doesn't look like a regular toenail. Yet. It shows signs of true naildom: it's firmer than the surrounding skin, obviously made of keratin, and ingrown, just like the last one.

So there it is folks. By reading my blog the reader can now know how long a nail needs to go from black toe to new nail. Hallejulah!
