Excellent! Wonderful! Fantastic! Genius! Spectacular! (Now, will you please not kill me?) ;)

Such evil eyes
August 16th, 2020  
Had to google that one. A look of helplessness and sadness. Fav.

Wouldn’t it be more a case of dermatillomania?

@kjarn No, because that would require biting or chewing and focuses on the skin mainly whereas I only pick (constantly) at the nails (the skin around them is also affected but only as a "side effect"). We finally decided that I should do something about it when I calmly managed to rip out my index fingernail some 18 months ago. It's taken a long time for that thumbnail to grow back to where it is now...but as you can see I still like to get stuck in to it.
@joysabin Thanks very much....good old Google ;)
@jgpittenger I'm a big ol' teddy bear...
@juliedduncan Thanks very much...for all of those. And I'll try not to ;)
@ghost13 Thank you very much :)

Yes I see you've had a go at that nail but my eye was drawn to the scratched off skin. You poor thing.
August 16th, 2020  
Brilliant portrait, you poor devil.

Oh dear, this virus is worse than I'd imagined. Well done, old boy.
August 16th, 2020  
@golftragic Thank you kindly :)
@mona65 Thanks veyr much and @kjarn It's no where near as bad as it used to be. It's only that one nail that gets all the attention now!

Today's new word and a fab selfie too.
August 16th, 2020  
deadly!
August 16th, 2020  
crikey thats good on black
August 16th, 2020  
Just the eyes. They attract so much. And the fact that they are unevenly lit causes anxiety. I have shivers.
August 16th, 2020  
eek. so it's a case of nine down, one to go?
August 16th, 2020  
I can see it is getting to you. Glad you sought help! If you bite the nail, and then tear it - what is that called? I have to keep my nails very short to stop myself doing that.
August 16th, 2020  
Super portrait!
August 16th, 2020  
I had to Google that too:) The cure for me was retirement but I think you have quite a way to go for that one. Your make up is so much better than mine ever was ...
August 16th, 2020  
Going to put this in the top percentage of your creations.

@gamelee Thank you so much :)
@fbailey I'm about 15 years away from that...but already looking forward to it ;)
@jacqbb Thanks very much :)
@helenhall I have no idea...strangely I've never been a bitter, just a picker and a ripper...
@pistache I only "deal in death" to that one thumbnail these days...
@haskar I like to cause anxiety ;)
@brigette Thank ya ma'am :)
@koalagardens Nah...I'm a big teddy bear ;)
@30pics4jackiesdiamond Now you have to use it in a sentence ;)
August 17th, 2020  
You're in fine, if frightening, form. Fav
August 17th, 2020  
Fabulously frightening!
August 17th, 2020  
Your nail is kind of beautiful, like a jagged mountain range.
Not the worst addiction out there but frustrating I'm sure!
August 17th, 2020  
Agree with other comments re totally frightening! Did a double-take as it scrolled!
August 18th, 2020  
@taffy Thanks very much - if I can get a double take and a touch of anxiety then I'm a happy man ;)
@dustyloup There are far worse but blimey, it hurts sometimes!
@mzzhope Marvellous!
@fotoblah Thank you very much :)
August 18th, 2020  
I could think of worse manias for sure. Such as face-scratching. Just sayin.
August 19th, 2020  
@aikiuser I'll pass on that one...
August 19th, 2020  
So nice to have something awesome to be scared of (instead of, you know, reality...) Fav.
August 19th, 2020  
@linnypinny You're welcome ;)
