That’s what I will be doing! I’m not a fan of fake nails at all, and I don’t care for French manicures much.

Yeah I’m just doing polish on my normal nails.  Long nails are sooo creepy to me.

I’m doing this too. Been doing my own manicures for a couple years now, so I’ve got it down to an art! Tongue Out

@jessyrez:  Yup! I’m not a huge fan of french manicures, but I did a pale neutral with a tiny bit of subtle sparkle at the bottom (hard to see in this picture but it looked really pretty). Long nails also kinda gross me out a little and just look weird on my hands.

I’m just doing a classic cherry red and painting a little diamond on the ring finger and calling it a day.

I like French manis because when they grow out, I can trim them to a very thin white line lol

I bite my nails out of stress, so they are going to be super short come time for the wedding. So, I’m just going to do a gold tip french manicure and be done with it. No one is going to care about my nails.

I’m still planning to get a manicure, but my nails are always short.  I’m thinking just a pale pink-nude…probably won’t even do gel/shellac, since the first (and only) time I did, it destroyed my nails (3 months later, they are finally OK again!).  I do like some of the ombré glitter designs that are all over Pinterest, though – might see if I can get an ‘accent nail’ with glitter 🙂

@loveandapitbull:  I’m going to do my nails in a blue (maybe like the one below) and then do my ring finger nails with gold glitter over the blue.  =)

@peachacid:  THAT’S long to you? Lol there’s still finger tip showing above my nail, maybe it’s not a great angle. I got yelled at by the nail technician that they were “not long enough for a bride”

@jessyrez:  Thanks! It’s ballet slippers (essie) with a very fine sparkle (not sure of the brand, sorry).

@littlegraykitten:  Yeah mine are wicked short.  I hate when they get that “long” because they feel WEIRD and I can’t type.  Lol.
