Alright, past 2 days I've been doing heavy bending. I do bend from my hand/wrist not just scrunch or stretch my fingers. Everything feels great, bends are good, except my finger tips. They aren't doing so hot.

The calluses that I had are cracked now. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I'm applying a fair amount of pressure cause if I don't the string slips on the bend, or it just buzzes out.

that happened to me before. it'll stop after a while. its just from constant heavy playing. eventually your fingers will become used to it
