    Why don’t you just get gel nail polish? Your nails can be kept short and they can still do designs on them if you want. The polish typically lasts 2 weeks.

    I am not a fan of fake nails. I prefer just a gel manicure on my natural nails. i would suggest going that route, especially since you will have to remove them for work after the wedding.

    I would suggest you get a gel polish mani instead of full on false nails. 

    Firstly, getting a new set and having them removed within 6 days is not only a waste of your money, but really hard on your nails. 

    If you get them just before your wedding and it’s your first time, you might be really uncomfortable and not be happy with them which is risky…

    Can you wear a gel polish at work?

    tinker44:  I would not recommend getting fake nails. The nail tech will sand down and rough up your natural nail. When you get them removed your nails will be extremely thin and weak – it’s not worth it! And to be completely honest I think fake nails are a little outdated.

    I think a no chip mani on your natural nails will look great!

    Get it for the 6 days with multiple designs. Different nails are whats ‘in’ right now anyway!

    I’d also avoid fake nails entirely, just like I would with hair extensions, boob implants, or any other perfectly normal beauty enhancement that is not normal to me. Why risk discomfort (or outright injury) for the temporary treatment of X, Y, Z? Just my $0.02.

    Happy nuptials, Bride to Bee!

    tinker44:  I agree with PPs that gel nails are a great option for you. If you want long nails though, have you considered press ons? They come in tons of designs and are mush easier on your nails than acrylics. Maybe play with some sets during your week off and try out different glues to see what works best for you.

    tinker44:  Yeah, the acrylics themselves aren’t too hard on your nails, but removing them is rough. I actually got acrylics for the first time the wednesday before my wedding, so I had a couple of days to get used to them- I didn’t even think about doing an early trial. I ended up keeping mine for about 6 months, there are things I miss about having them (longer nails! fewer breaks! fun colors!) and things I hated (getting caught on things- ow! stuff getting stuck under them- ew!)

    I’m a nurse as well and I usually don’t wear anything on my nails.  But for the wedding I’ll just be doing polish.
