  • I do just polish, acrylics arent my thing. I do them about twice a month. I have the boards and I just give my self a "PRETTY night", I also do my own pedi's.

  • Can't afford acrylics anymore... but, my nails have all grown out and for the first time in a couple of decades they are beautiful, long, strong and mine. I highly recommend Mane & Tail Hoofmaker. I just have mine buffed to a really nice shine. They are too smooth for polish, it peels off after one day.

  • I have done both. I don't really like artificial nails (too thick). I also do my own pedi's. As for fingers, I don't normally use polish as it comes off in days so I just buff shiny.

  • I have my own nails and they are always polished.  Most of the time I do it but I go to the salon for designs painted on them.

  • I do my own. Mainly at night while I watch a show I recorded. I don't have the money for a mani or a pedi. And they would look the same whether I painted them or someone else did.

  • Yes, and Both. My nails are naturally long and strong, but when I am going to be working or doing something which will weaken them, I will do a thin coat of acrylic. Generally though, I just to polish every third day or so.

  • I do my own nails. I paint my toes regularly, my fingers not too often, and usually clear or just a faint pink polish.

  • acylilcs because my real nails don't grow the way I want to and when they do they always break and for my toes I do my own pedicure.
