I bite mine… But yours look great!  I paint them all sorts of different colors but I have never done a french tip because they are too short.

Another nail picker / biter (but in recovery).

Sorry, I have to ask…

Are those 100% your own / natural growth… or do you “enhance” them with tips ?

I’ve been trying to grow my nails since my Wedding / Honeymoon (3 months now)… and it is a HUGE uphill battle.

See my post here… http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/confessions-of-a-nail-picker-biter#axzz2QTmEZwdO

(I should update that again)

I am getting to the point where they finally have some length, but they are a b!tch to keep from breaking etc.  I was so hoping for “picture perfect” nails.  Maybe I need to break down and just realize that in reality they are much better than they ever were before, and long enough so I can now “enhance” them, and that will be reward enough.

@roweboat:  Wow! You have beautiful, natural nails!

I don’t add anything to mine either, except regular polish. I don’t want to have to maintain the other types of enhancements.

Here is how they looked for my wedding, when my manicurist created the look with polish only:

And here is how they look when I do them myself (though I usually get the lines slightly straighter than this.) This is with a different color pink than the one my manicurist used. I often use what she used, but that is not what is shown in this pic:

Here are my wedding nails! I did not want to go with the traditional french so im doing a delicate pink instead. The first one is on regular acrylic overlay and the second is gel acrylic…not sure which i like better.

Haha I did a similar post a few weeks back about getting my nails done while i’m ‘waiting’.. very happy with the results and glad they will look nice when my man pops the question!

I actually just posted this on another thread, but that’s okay 🙂 These are my natural nails with shellac on.  I used to be a nailbiter like nobody’s business, but now I just pick at the cuticles and leave the nails alone :-/

@gelaine22:  Ok, that’s what I was leaning towards as well! I like the solid look of it.
