For a number of years now Ive always worn false nails (I get them done every 3 weeks). Lately Ive had a few dreams about nails falling off. Last night it was really vivid. I was having a dream and happened to look at my right hand. I noticed that the thumb nail had snapped off 3/4 of the way down. Frantically I looked for it. I found it and felt relieved to then look at both of my hands and all the false nails had gone. My own nails were really short and a way I would never normally have them.
