Do you get your nails done?

I used to get them done ever other week, but now I just don't. Oh and I'm talking about the acrylic tips. Partly because of how your nails are after you get them taken off. All breaky and what not. But I think it's just so pretty. So do you think it's worth it to get them done?

  • The one and only time i've ever had my nails done was for my wedding. I loved it! and if it wasnt so expensive i'd keep it up. ...but it's expensive around here. 60 bucks a month is better spent somewhere else.

  • I get my done but i get them done by my sil so I only pay 20 bucks each time! I love it though it's the one time i have to myself away from kids and hubby and it's one less thing I have to do myself! I also love the chatter at a salon I live in a very small town and it's mostly gossip which is terrible but oh well!

  • Nah. I do too much with my hands and they end up getting snapped, cracked, scratched and melted by the second day LOL I prefer to just keep them nice and shaped, buffed, cuticle maintenance, and some pretty China Glaze polish.

  • I get mine filled every two weeks. I have been wearing them steadily for about two years. I don't care what my nails look like underneath... I never plan on going without.
