Is there any way to get fake nails with a french manicure without them needing to file down your original nails? I really love the look of my nails when they are grown out but I definitely want the professional look of my nails being done…however I am not looking forward to them filing down my nails and then having to peel them off (ouch) once they have grown out and then waiting months for them to regrow. Any ideas/types/techniques you’ve used in the past. I’d love to hear! Thanks!

You could get silks or gels rather than acrylics. They are more expensive but do less damage to the nails.

Or you can get a gel manicure – they go right on top of the real nail.

I recommend you asking about “Prescription” nails. This is the route I plan to take next week. I too LOVE when my nails get long… unfortunately I made a huge mistake by getting a manicure @ the “wrong” place and had my nails ruined. I’m back to the tech who’s been helping me grow them out with “Axxiom” (OPI salon product). Since my nails haven’t gotten to the length I hoped for, she recommended this as the safest, least damaging option. She said they are basically “Press On” nails and last about 2 weeks. NOT like what you find @ Walgreens or Target. I HOPE this goes as she’s describing. … First time I hear about these “Prescription Nails”.. good luck!

Great ideas everyone! I like the fact that now I have options, that I didn’t know about before! Thanks a bunch! 🙂
