  • I can usually wait 3 to 4 weeks to get fills. I have been keeping mine short lately, and trying to decide if I want to keep them or take them off when the baby gets here.

  • I had mine done in May for my wedding and kept them up for a couple months. I LOVE short acrylics but I can't afford to keep them up.

  • I have them and actually just got them filled today. I usually get them done every two weeks because I have been keeping that new dark grey color on this winter. I love it. My nails seem to grow like crazy, which is weird because they never did anything before I started getting them done. I get them cut down pretty short, because I type alot. Remember, I talked about it yesterday on here...

  • I haven't had acrylics in years! Ever since I saw a report about all the fungus that grows underneath the acrylics and then when I took them off I smelled them and yuck! You really can't control what grows under them and my nails look fine with my natural length. I must say though I do like to see a nice french manicure, it looks pretty.

  • I'VE BEEN GOING ON AND OFF FOR 9 YEARS. I PREFER THEM SHORT TO MEDIUM. LOOKS MORE NATURAL. PLUS, WHEN MY SONS WERE SMALLER THEY'D GET IN THE WAY. I LOVE TO GO EVERY TWO WEEKS. I FEEL PAMPERED.

  • I used to get them, but the place I went hated doing them short. Since I got my waxing done there, I didn't want to find another place, so I just stopped getting the acrylics. I miss them sometimes. I like the tappity-tappity sound they make.
