@sunshineforme:  How about a no chip manicure? I’ve been getting mine done ever since I’ve been engaged (August 2012) and my nails have grown like weeds!! It lasts at least 2weeks and actually protects your nails from breaking.  Try It!! I don’t like the look of tips on my fingers so I plan on getting the no chip for my wedding.

@sunshineforme: have you ever heard of shellac? I just got a shellac manicure last week and I love it. It’s your natural nail but the shellac is put in on in layers and cured under the UV light. It doesnt damage your nails like acrylics. It lasts up to 2 weeks and doesn’t chip. It’s supposed to help your nails grow since its tougher than regular polish. My natural nails have never looked this good because I pick on them and bite them (ugh…can’t stop!!)

I love shellac! Lasts long, doesnt chip or break and looks more natural.

Definitely get a no chip, shellac manicure.  Less expensive than acrylics and about 1000 times more natural looking.  If you’re careful, your manicure will last a few weeks.  The only painful thing is the removal process can be tedious, but it’s worth it.

I just bought press ons, KISS, french manicure from the drug store….just glued them on. They look like pink/white acrylic’s.  They feel and look natural. I used to get  pink and whites all the time.  This is MUCH cheaper to do every 2 weeks. I just have to carry the glue in my purse in case one pops off. but the glue holds them on pretty good.  I love them. I don’t have time to spend at the nail salon every 2 weeks for a fill nor do I have the money to spend on a fill right now. Good alternative for now 🙂

I plan on doing a Shellac manicure, probably in a pale pink (I’m shying away from my normal dark polish!). I know it’ll stay and look good throughout the entire day and last for a while after too.

If you like the look of the french pink and white manicure, you could still get that with Shellac.

I had gel and acrylic nails for about 10 years and while I loved them at the time, I’m so glad that I don’t have them anymore. I took them off around a year ago and my nails are finally back to normal and healthy now.

@IzzyBear:  Me too! I am debating between the two.

 

I love my natural nails. I used to be a big acrylics fan, wore them for about 8 years faithfully, then one day I removed them and decided to just get a few manicures and by-golly, my real nails WILL grow lol. They are strong and long and soo gorgeous. It will def be shellac for me.

@MrsRedPumps:  I used to wear acrylics all the time, for years. Thankfully I was blessed with great nails and hair so I don’t need to wear acrylics to have long, durable nails 🙂

Fake nails are…I’ll be nice and say a no-go.

I looove gel manis. I can’t wear regular polish (it’ll smudge or chip within hours at the most), so I got a gel mani at my salon and loved it, and then bought a kit to do it myself at home. It’s a bitch to remove, but it really does stay on for ~2 weeks as long as it’s done properly.
