    i’ve done french on myself before but it just never looks as good as when i get it done by someone else, so i’m going to shell out the $15 and have them done for sure. i’d be too paranoid with all the up close pictures of you holding your bouquet and stuff.

    I had my natural nails professionally french manicured. Less work for me and at that point I needed the mani-pedi.

    I wasn’t thrilled about doing acrylics or gel nails, so I determined to stop biting two weeks before the wedding and used Sally Hansen nail strengthener and gew mine out! 

    I usually keep my nails short and never polish them, so I just got a french manicure on my natural nails.  I had to take it off within a week though, because they chipped and drove me crazy!

    I voted for getting fake nails, but I’m a little nervous about that because I’ve never had them before. I just have really terrible natural nails – they break and chip so easily, and I want my hands to look nice!

    I prefer my nails natural with just clear polish. I can’t imagine I’ll want anything different for my wedding day. πŸ™‚

    I’ve never had fake nails or wraps or anything like that. I kind of want to try gel/silk wraps, but otherwise I’ll just be doing natural nails with a professional mani/pedi.

    Unless one of my BMs surprise me, I will just be doing natural nails, or a clear polish on them.  I might get a professional pedicure done though… I did that a year or so back for a friends wedding and it was awesome. πŸ™‚

    try an american manicure…bc they are more subtle, I would assume it is also easier to DIY

    Though, getting a “polish change” w/o the full manicure is usually only ~8-12 for american, so I would splurge and just do your own cuticles.

    I voted for Acrylic nails…but that’s because I already have them and have had them for a while. I’m not sure what I want exactly. Honestly, I really like the idea of doing black…think Lauren Conrad nails, not gothy vampire nails! LOL It’s very simple and will go with the color scheme and it’s not something out of the norm for me. You can often find me with a dark nail polish on because it looks best against my skin color…which is a “peachy tan” currently I have a plum color on! Just my style =)

    I am getting both my hands and fet done. My natural nails are pretty long, so I won’t need fake nails. I normally do them myself, but I want to be pampered. Have you thought about going to a beauty school? They are pretty cheap.
