Do you paint your own or go the nail shop?

I like my nails short and natural. Never had them done professionally and if I painted them myself, they started to chip in two days. I also hate smelling nail polish if I eat with hands. 馃槄 Natural is the best for me.

@CrazyMusicLover eat your hands. Are you a nervous person??
@Mellowgirl No, no, eat with my hands. 馃槄A good new nail polish shouldn't smell but as it gets older it gives off chemical odour.

I hardly get anytime to spend
but whenver I feel like it I just apply some nail polish while I study
I've a bad habit of ruining it all within minutes or sometimes seconds
but I really like it and try to keep it
these days I do it when I'm not okay
for long time my favourite colour was only red
now I've bought some two three more colours too 馃拝

@Mellowgirl wowwwwwwww
ur nails are really gorgeous and we'll maintained 馃拵
mine is totally a mess

It has been days at this point 馃う鈥嶁檧锔

@Raaii ahh thank you... Yea I try my hardest to do a good job initially and they last really letting them dry. It's been a learning process especially with this heat... I like the colour of yours. The best tip I can give is if you use nail varnish remover wash your hands straight after before you paint them.

@Mellowgirl thank you so so much for the advice 馃檱鈥嶁檧锔
the beauty industry just loots money via such simple things
I don't do much just minimal
still I feel it's waste of money 馃樋

I spend up to $150 on wrap, pedi and eyebrows. No regrets.

@Mellowgirl It's when nails are wrapped in silk, linen, fiberglass and even resin. It's to provide stability. Way better than acrylic and the salon I go don't use those devices to thin the nail, they use good old nail files, so it's my natural nail with no damage.

@CheshireAzur ooh ive never heard of that.
I just eat well and they seem to be growing really well and strong.
CheshireAzur36-40, F
@Mellowgirl Some people like the added stability. Especially me since I do tend to be clumsy. 馃し馃従鈥嶁檧锔
I can't use nail polish unfortunately. It just makes them brittle and weird.
Mellowgirl31-35, F
@AlienFox ooh how bizarre. Maybe it's brand.. I use maybelline 60 seconds
@Mellowgirl I've tried it all 鈽癸笍
I do the body work but leave the painting to a professional. I'm talking about cars I've built.
I don't DO my nails at all anymore. They are very thin and brittle, and break so easily that I got tired of trying to repair the damage.

@4meAndyou ooh sounds like you need some. Omgea and biotin in your diet.
@Mellowgirl Probably.

I do them myself.
Sometimes people think I got gel nails.
Sometimes I'm just wearing nail polish strips. They last a really long time.
Unless we鈥檙e talking about Cheetos or pastels, I don鈥檛 think I鈥檝e done my nails since my friends鈥 wedding six years ago馃槄

I do my own nails. I can't see spending money on it, when I can easily do it myself.
dontbekoi36-40, F
I do it myself.

Your nails are lovely .. I love the shape!
Mellowgirl31-35, F
@dontbekoi aww thank you. I spent 8 years not being allowed to do my nails because of work I'm glad I can finally do them again
My own. I rarely get them done 馃し鈥嶁檧锔
I don't paint them at all.....easy !
Musicman61-69, M
My wife has hers done.
GlitterEater36-40, F
Own, typically.
BarbossasHusband36-40, M
I do both
deadteddy26-30, F
I usually get them done only because I suck at it 馃槄, but it would save me a good $70 if I could do my own
Mellowgirl31-35, F
@deadteddy 70 wowwww
