How often do you paint your nails?

What brand do you like that lasts the longest?

Welcome. I hardly ever wear any. And I have found NO brand that lasts... LOL

I've stopped doing my nails at home.  I will get them done from time to time (around holidays or special occassions)..I pay the extra for the Schalack (sp) polish that lasts 10 days to 3 weeks without chipping, and I am a cook.  My hands are always in food or water...I had them done for Thanksgiving and then had them done again for Christmas/New Years.  I'll get them done again probably for St. Patricks day....

I get mine done every 5-6 weeks. I get the shellac because I am hard on nails. Typically my hands are in a French manicure but with shorter length and oval filed - I don't like square. I go every other month for pedicures and like to go with a sexy red and occasionally a fun design - I have snowflakes on my big toes now for winter. In September I wear teal color only on both toes and nails in support of and to raise awareness for ovarian cancer.

 I don't. I have ugly nails and have my hands in water so much that it wouldn't pay to paint them.

Do you have a preference? Do you paint your nails often?

I don't/can't paint mine due to where I work. But when I did I never found any that did work and last. How about you? Welcome to the group

Because I wash my hands all the time at work my polish doesn't last very long.

Right now I use orly from sallys..I can get 7 days out of it...but I'm wondering if the gel polish is worth the cost. .

I hate waiting for them to dry :-(

I can wear polish as long as there are no chips. I'm getting a week out of orly from sallys. I'm curious about the gel polish though. I hate waiting for them to dry
