- Wedding: October 2014
jcaldwell14: I bit my nails forever and got acrylics for my wedding. They were OK, but I had never gotten them before so I didn’t know what to expect. They looked alright, especially since some of my nails were still short so my gal did her best. They hurt the next day, since I wasn’t used to them. That, I was nor prepare for. They basically glue the acrylic to your existing nail bed.
Afterwards, I got them removed and just had a manicure done – my nails were so weak and brittle. But, I continued to do my own until they grew out some (and stopped biting completely). Then before our honeymoon 4 months after our wedding, I got a gel french manicure. I haven’t stopped getting gel manicures since!
For me, they last and I’ve had maybe 2 months (in the year and a few months of getting them) chip or my nails have broke. So for me, my appointments are about 3-4 weeks in between since they last so long. Sometimes I’ll have to trim a few nails up that grow like weeds, but that will happen.
