Do you regularly have your nails done?

I don't because of a few things. One, its expensive. Two, when a nail chips it drives me crazy and I want it fixed right then and that's not usually possible same day. Three, bacteria gets up under there more easily even with washing and I'm too much of a germaphobic and Four, i find that I can't do things as easily with long nails lol

  • No, because I am a freak about organic and natural stuff and I have yet to discover a nail salon that uses toxic-free nail polish.

  • Nope. Too expensive and my nails need to be kept short for my job

  • No, I can't keep them on for more than a few days. I have to get acrylics when I do get my nails done because they don't break easily.

  • wow have not thought about that in many years but yes, I used to go every week or two to get my tips redone or filled. This place right up the street from me where this woman worked, she did awesome work!!!! I let a couple others touch my hands a couple when she was not there and they NEVER lasted. That shit is truly an art-form, very few can do nails very well. Asian women usually do the best work or asian men(I kept tips on for at least 15 of my 33 years). I came to a point where I could not afford that luxury anymore and than shortly after got pregnant. Pre-natal vits. did wonders for my nails and even since having my 2 years ago, my nails are super strong and grow real fast! I constantly get compliments on them and people asking if they are fake. Nope mine are 100% real now!

  • I use to. I LOVED acrylic nails. Now I am a potter and can't really wear them. But I do miss them.
