honeybee2020 :  I’ve been getting acrylic nails for nearly half of my life, I do gel polish on top of the acrylic. 

No offense, but I definitely think one color looks a lot better than the french tip, especially depending on the shape of nail you get.

I was a nail biter, too (horrible habit) and getting my nails done regularly keeps me from that and I love how they look. The problem is a regular manicure lasts like a minute. I get inexpensive ones at the salon near my work on my lunch break about once a week. If I’m going on vacation, I like to get a gel since they last a lot longer. I didn’t get one before our fifith anniversary trip and regret it because my husband proposed and my nails were not their best. Oh well. I love nice nails with my rings now. 🙂

I have been getting regular gel manicaures for years now. I recently switched over to SNS powder dip. Its amazing. They last a long time and my nails are the longest that they have ever been. Not every salon does it and they cost a little more than gel but worth it. 

Also my husband loves french tips. I had a french when he proposed but I prefer a nice bold color.

I’ve been getting bio gel overlays for 3+ years and I don’t see myself stopping any time soon.  I love it…my nails never break and my polish never chips.  It always lasts until I go in for my monthly fill.

honeybee2020 :  Yeah, guys don’t really keep up with the times when it comes to nails lol. I probably have a similar shape nail as you, mine is almond shaped. I think the ombre white tip can look really nice if you have a good nail tech. Regardless, I’d check the salons yelp reviews, see who people recommend then make an appointment with that person. You’ll want your nails looking perfect for all your ring pics!!

No. I paint my nails every Sunday. I do a much better job than they ever do. I don’t like gel or shellac on my nails so I use regular polish. It’s mt favourite Sunday activity. I also like changing my colour every week. I have very strong nails and people are always amazed that I do my own nails. Every few months I’ll get a manicure so they clean it all up but otherwise it’s all me.

The powder dip is the best!!! But I stopped doing it because of the expense. Now I’ll paint my nails on Sunday at home and do the powder occasionally

I get a gel mani every other week, usually a pale pink although I switch it up once in a while. I used to get acrylics with white tips in high school/college so I think I kind of associate it with being younger for that reason.

I get my nails done every couple weeks and have done for several years. I do the gel polish; I love it. 

French manicures can be so pretty and classic but they are also pretty outdated (especially the way a lot of people still do them- with the pink and whites and/or with the acrylic tips) but they’ve been popular for as long as they have for a reason. They always look fresh and clean and they grow out pretty easily and with little fuss.

My husband told me once that my nails looked like an old woman’s because they were long and red and rounded at the ends. I was like “So, I think what I hear you saying is that my hands look like the hands of a woman with decades worth of disposable income and a long and consistently regular self care practice. I’m okay with that.” and then I scratched him.

I’ve been getting mine done for two years. I get SNS sometimes with tips sometimes natural. I don’t feel like myself without my nails done! I go every 2 weeks regardless of how they look. My bf loves that I keep them up and constantly tells me how good they look lol

Nope.  I dont think it’s wroth the hassle of upkeep when it chips and needs to be redone so often.  I dont want to pay to have it done and Im too lazy to go get it done anyways.  And I dont have the patience to do it myself all the time either.  So just natural nails for me.

French tips are my favorite. 

I really want to be the type to get my nails done. 

I just think they look so amazing!

That being said I always feel like I could spend the money else where or I just don’t have the time for it. It doesn’t help that I can’t really have long nails where I work. 

Recently I’ve been growing my nubbins out and am considering buying a gel nail kit.
