    I do my nails my self. I have the gelish gel polish system and have been using it for almost 2 years now. My manis last anywhere from 2-3 weeks. If anyone is looking into doing their own gel polish please make sure you educate yourself, it can be bad for your nails if it is not used in the proper way. I have even seen techs at nail salons who use damaging practices. It is hard because everyones nails are different.

    I paint my own, always. I’m obsessed with nail polish and nail art! 🙂 

    Generally, I switch my colors on my fingers every 3 to 4 days, and switch out my toe color every 1 to 2 weeks. 

    However, I’m making an exception for my wedding and getting a shellac mani/pedi.

    I have super horrid cuticles, so I maintain my nails proffessionally and at home. I tend to change my nails color 3-4 times every 2 weeks , but I paint them myself. I see the nail ladies once a month.

    I do my own because I don’t have the money to go to a salon, otherwise I would have them professionally done. My nails are painted almost all the time because I have very weak nails and if I don’t keep them painted, they crack and split. I handle money at work, so customers are always looking at my hands. I like my nails to be fun colors. 🙂
