Im concidering useing some press on nails that you glue on to save a lot of money and my poor naials from the acrilic. I like and I’m wearing some now as a trial. I used the Kiss real short french tips. So far they are holding up pretty well. I could also paint or glue a little stone on the tips of the ring finger to dress em up.
would you wear press ons?

I’d rather go to the salon.

Try a shellac or other gel manicure instead of acrylics. Much better for your nails and will last a heck of a lot longer than press on nails.

For something as important as your wedding it’s worth the splurge to the salon. What if one of those things popped off halfway through the ceremony?

My best friend used press on nails and ended up getting a fungal infection.
I think with untrained eyes and hands you can trap bacteria in there that a professional would know how to prevent. I have been getting pink and white acrylics for nine years now from the same salon (that recieves perfect scores every time with the inspector) without ever have a problem of infection.

I personally don’t like to have fake nails at all, but I have to vote for going to the salon because the stick on ones fall off and lookr REALLY fake.

hmmmmmmm i think i wiill look into the shellac nails
as i look at these press on nails (since i put them on yesterday) i look at them and realize i hate the way they look. they’re to white and i dont think the white french tips is the way i want to go maybe something a lot more nutral.
I am convinced I’m doing the salon
also im glad i did this trial to kniow that these nails are not what i want to do.

don’t get acrylics. i’m a nail technician/manicurist. acrylics are very rarely done properly, and unless they are, they do way more damage than good.
look into shellac. it’s better for your nails.

I agree with shellac on your natural nails at the salon.

I am just going natural, either with a clear coat or a colored coat of polish. Nothing special.

I naturally have long strong nails and usually paint them myself, but for the wedding I’m making sure that they don’t chip and look nice for pictures so I’m going to the salon. I’m probably not going to get fake nails but just get a manicure. I’d still suggest going to a salon if you’re wanting fake nails. I’ve used the press on ones and very rarely do they last a whole day. Once in a while they’ll last through a weekend. I still do use them but I think for the wedding you’re not going to want to worry about them faling off.
