Do you do your nails, or do you have them done at a salon?

If so, how often?

I keep wanting to do mine but it seems like setting just a little time aside for something like that never happens. I really want to paint my toenails, but I have to do that early in the day or it just doesn't get done. I'm going to try today.

  • Do mine myself. I use tape to set a line across the tips of my toes and then paint any color. Then I set it with clear polish. looks like I came from the salon with a $30 pedicure and french tip! Plus, use fast drying colors and a fast drying top coat before putting a shiny top coat. Dries quickly, not much interruption of the day, and with the top coat, stays for a long time.

  • I've got an unnatural fear of flesh eating disease. No to nail salons.

  • Does biting them count as doing them myself? If so, I do them daily.

  • Oh, I do paint my own toe nails and no I don't bite those! I keep them painted and do touch ups as needed. Funny how I could care less about my fingernails but when my toes don't look at least somewhat decent I feel trashy.

  • I do my own except during the summer i pay for 2-3 pedicures. They seem to last much longer when I have them done versus me doing them.

  • My fingernails are kept very short since I type all day long for my job. I just chop them off, and I'm lucky if I even find time to file them. Toes are a little different. I treat myself to a pedicure at least once a year (at the beginning of the summer), and then I just maintain them the rest of the year.
