Has anyone tried bending 6 inch nails?
Here is a little guide to it from an inexperienced nail bender.
Get some 6 inch nails.
Be aware that different companies make different strengths of nails and it will not be marked on the pack.
Get some thing like a dishdrying cloth to wrap the nail in.
Wrap the nail to a suitable grip size.
Bend the nail!
You could use different grips for this, if find the most difficult one is the pronated grip with both hand. The pronated/supinated or sup/sup grips are easier and worth trying out first.
Apparently the way to get in position is to hold the nail with the ends being in the middle of your palms (i would say to hold it closer in so it doesn't hurt as much). Then hold the nail at chest height with your elbows in at your side. As you try to bend that rascal move your elbows out to the side.
I would say a good routine is the one rep routine. Maybe cos i'm a wuss?
Try and bend the nail with full effort. Hold it as tight as possible and really go for it. Keep going. Keep it up. After about six seconds give it a rest and try it again later on.
Go for three times a day.
You should feel weak in your wrists and deltoids.
I eventually bent one nail. Whewww, very hard work. So i rushed out to buy some more to find that they were much harder. After five days i have bend it 1.5 degrees
My vegan pal Johnathan can bend them with ease. Takes him two goes with the hard nails!
