  • Never. I grow my own nails, no fakes here! And just keep them painted every third day or so.

  • I have never had them done and I have no desire to. I work in a hospital so I keep my nails very short and never painted. My toes are always painted though.

  • Right now, not at all, since I'm laid-off work. But, normally about every 4-6 weeks.

  • A close friend of my used to do my nails, she's a nail tech in an upscale salon. I did the math once...It costs over $600 a year to maintain acrylic nails... CraZy, which then falls into the financial category of Luxury Item for me so I haven't had my nails done in a decade!... I've grown mine out and for the first time in 20 years I have beautiful natural nails. I keep them buffed, no polish necessary....

  • I haven't had my nails done since my senior prom and that three years ago! I've been thinking about getting them done again, but I don't know if I should. I have a terrible habit of biting my nails and I remember I bit my fake nails off not even a week after prom.

  • I use to have acrylic nails but I have had them on for about 2 months, I would pay about 15 for a refill but if I need a cut down or a repair I would pay about 20. Right I'm trying to grow my nail but they always seems to break once I get them to the length I want and they always chipped too so I just buffed and file them and put clear coat on them. But soon I will be getting my acrylic back on and I will pay 25 for a new set.

  • I haven't gotten my nails done since I was 16 or 17, so that was about 4 or 5 years ago. I paint them now that I don't have a job with rules against painting nails. I paint them every few days when they color chips really bad. I've been giving myself a French manicure the past couple of weeks.
