Do you do your own nails or do you go to a nail salon? What color polish are on them now?

When I have the money which is rare these days I go to a salon because I suck at doing my own nails. Lately I've been having to do them myself. Right now I have no color. I'll probably do my nails tonight.

  • I have acrylics, so I go to the salon for fills. In between, I polish them myself, or just add on some Crackle. LOL!

  • I don't do my nails nor go to a salon. I do file them but don't put on polish. They are bare and natural.

  • I almost never do anything but trim my nails. If I do, I do them myself. And only black.

    I am thinking about doing them now though since Halloween is coming and I'm a Halloween junkie. Black and orange...either every other finger, or I may just do one finger orange on each hand, and the rest black....dont know yet.

  • I get them done for special occasions, I had shellac put on them and they are recovering so they are bare.

  • I get them done once in a while as a treat. When I was single I had a standing weekly appointment.
    I'm pretty good at doing them myself. My fingers are clear with bit of glitter (3 yo dd picked it. Lol.)
    My toes are a horror show. Gotta do em.

  • I have long natural nails, I don't do acrylic or gel based or any of those. I file them, normally apply a clear coat, or a french with colored tips, depends on what I am wearing.
