Do you get fake nails? your hair done? tanning?

I recently got nails but what a pain the ass to get the filled- my nails are so brittle but grow so fast, I get my hair cut by fantastic sams twice a year and don't tan :)

  • I've had acrylic nails for the past five years. Yes, it can be a pain, but I love them. They are so easy compared to what my natural nails were like. Hair, yup... bleached and cut regularly too. No to tanning. After twenty years of tanning, I now have some damage to my upper chest area.

  • I got fake nails once, they lasted less than a week. I haven't had anything done to my hair in over 2 years. I am in desperate need of a haircut.

  • I got acrylic nails for prom(went to the local cosmotology school b/c its cheaper.) And it looked like total shit! Not to mention that she kept cutting my fingers instead of the cuticals.I tried doing fake nails once but didnt do a very good job. As for hair, Ive never really cut my hair or anything till about a year ago. Now I get it cut and dyed every few months. Though I dye it myself.I have never tanned.

  • I will never have fake nails ever again. Friend went to beauty school after high school, and I ended up her guinea pig. I get my hair done every few months, but absolutely no tanning. I'm translucent and proud.

  • I used to tan two or three times a year, always before beach trips. Haven't been in 8 years, though. Got gel nails for senior prom and kept them up for almost a year - haven't since. I do get my hair done every 6 weeks, though.

  • Gave up fake nails when my son was born. NEVER went tanning; I get checked yearly for melanoma as it is and I won't go there. Haircut every six weeks or so.

  • I use to wear fake nails but now that I"m pregnant I don't have them on I'm trying to let my real nails grow. Friend of mine comes to my house to cut my hair when I need and I usualy get it done once a year. I dye my own hair and don't do the tanning thing.
