They're cute, but I keep my nails natural.

I don't like acrylic.  They really always ruined my natural nails.

Pros

They look nice

Con

Gets expensive

If you have an active life, they break easily

Do horrible things to your real nails


That's all I got for now. lol

They look nice but they ruin your nails. I've gotten them done a few times in the past but I stick to natural nails now.

I hate the look of straight and flared tips. I loooove the look of rounded stiletto tips lately. They are quite spendy, and are terrible for your actual nails.

I don't do acrylic. I did for awhile, but it gets expensive to upkeep. Plus, I prefer typing without the acrylic nails.

I am natural nail girl.  I have nice long, strong nails and I got them that way by vitamins, drinking lots of water and taking care of them.  I think the upkeep on acrylic can get expensive and I would rather have the extra money for more nail polishes LOL.

They look awful most of the time.
They turn yellow easy.
The look fake and tacky.
They destroy your real nails.
