Do you keep them long or short?  Polished or not?  Do you give yourself regular manicures?  Or do you have them done professionally?  

If you do them at home, how do you keep your cuticles in check?

I do my nails every other day. I love having my nails painted. I do them myself. cuticles i find you shouldnt touch them. they are meant to be there, why mess with them ?

I do my own. Every time I get them done professionally it hurts.
I keep them long but not super long. I polish them with Sally Hansens Hard as Nails clear polish and sometimes I add a color on top.

I love doing my own nails and have a huge polish collection.  I tend to do them every 2-3 days.  They are medium length and are natural.  To keep cuticles looking good I moisturize constantly with a cuticle cream.

I get mine done  by a nail technician every two weeks. They aren't short  or  super long...perfect length if  that makes  sense. I always get different colors or designs. 

I have cuticle cutters  that I will use right around the 2nd week of not getting nails done. I DO NOT like overgrown cuticles.

What do you find to be most effective on trimming cuticles? Which kind.of tool? Mine grow so much and I never know which works best?

I use the metal cuticle trimmer. I wait until they are literally growing after my nail lady trims them for me...I'd say they  last one or two weeks

Short and plain most of the time. I don't have time to let the polish dry.

Use a Quick Dry Topcoat and your nails will be dry within minutes.
