That is a serious accomplishment. I love having fake nails but it’s gotten so expensive. I really can’t afford another 20-30 bucks a month on nails! I had grown mine all out, even and pretty. I just got a manicure yesterday. Then tonight I decided to strip, sand, prime and spray paint a bicycle! Manicure: FAIL.

Just a tip also, Sally Hansen makes this stuff called “Hard as Wraps” that is great for keeping your natural nails strong.

Congrats! It’s a pain in the butt to do but it’s well worth it to have healthy, natural nails!

I had gel nails for a little bit .. my nails just wouldn’t grow out and I realized that I hated the gel nails. What a pain.

So after a while, I’ve finally grown mine out too! It was hard!!

Yay, Bellenga!! I was going back and forth on whether to get acrylic nails for the wedding but I love my natural nails. My only problem is that they are never the same height at the same time but on the other hand, I have not had acrylic nails in the longest time so my natural nails are pretty healthy right now. As long as I can keep these nails at a decent length for the next 15 days, I am staying natural.

Good for you, Belle.  I know my mom has acrylics and can’t imagine getting rid of them because her nails are so weak.  I usually have the opposite problem, my nails grow so quickly that I’m always having to file them.

I used to get manicures once a week but let me tell you how quickly that adds up haha! I try to do them myself most of the time now. I’ve never had gel nails or arcylics but I think they look great!

Congrats!  My nails have improved a bunch since I started taking bioting months ago to help grow my hair for the wedding.

Biotin is the Sh*t, Ladies!! 🙂 I take it now and my hair and nails are much stronger then what they were a year ago.
