Do you have fake nails?

I went and had french tips put on my nails and now they are so brittle.

  • I used to get them done, but at 40 bucks I decided I could spend that money on something better.

  • I had my nails done, but only a manicure... painting at the most.

  • No, I do my own nails now. Before kids I would occasionally get them put on but it absolutely ruins your nails. It's best to just stick with manicures.

  • I had been wearing pink and white gels until I smashed my hand in the door right before Christmas. I have to wait for the huge brown blood spot under my nail goes away before I have them done again.

    Wearing artificial nails will ruin your natural nails, so if you don't want to wear them long-term then I wouldn't suggest getting them done at all.

    However, I have been enjoying being free from the the nail salon every 10-14 days, and spending anywhere from $45-$60 to get my nails done.

  • You mean they are brittle when you took them off? I don't understand how your nails could be brittle if they have tips and acrylic??????

  • I love fake nails and I love real nails. There is a time for both. I would prefer to get mine done but due to the stupid ridiculous cost I've been forced to learn how to appy my own acrylics. And I do a pretty good job I might add!

  • Mine are real. The fake nails are weird looking to me.
