This is something I’ve been working hard on myself too! My nails are fairly brittle, so I started putting a strengthener on them, which made them glossy, and I loved. It’s also allowed me to get them to a length I like, though chipping/breaking them can still be an issue on the days I find myself doing more manual labor than normal. Over the last few months I’ve taken to keeping polish on them, usually a different color each week. I’m not technically out yet, but at this point most of my co-workers know I’m in the lgbtq community, and a couple of trusted ones know I’m trans. It’s been very liberating for me to be able to put color on them, and I hope the same will happen for you!
