Oh! I’m getting mine a light pink, no fake nail though, I just can’t stand them. So I’ve been growing my nails out all month and Babing them. I’m scarred one will break :p

I had a light pink, almost sheer. I didn’t want a french because my nails are smaller and I think french looks better on longer nails. I thought the light pink was classy and elegant. I’ll see if I have a picture of it.

I would do shellac in a color!

Have you tried an American Manicure? It’s a little different than French – tips are less white.

I am relatively vehement about my preference for pretty light pink and pinkish-nude nails (as opposed to french manis).  The stark white tips of frenches often look unnatural, and in my opinion, dated. A pretty pink looks so much more stylish to me:

I love pinks on shorter nails, too!

I plan on doing a simple, short nail manicure in a neutral color like light pink or a sheer nude.  I love the look of the short round nails, and don’t think my fingers look good when the nails are long and painted.  Kinda like this:

@sarahbabs:  I love that! I think it looks good on anyone no matter their skin tone or nail length!

@Sarahbabs that is exactly what I want! Any idea of the exact color?

I did red nails on relatively short mails.  It went with my wedding colors and was more “me” then a french.

@SarahSmilesDec28:  I totally love the look of short nails.  While I won’t do a color (though I love that red), I will definitely do something understated but still updated…a nude or a cream or something like the ones posted above!
