Do you use polish for your nails or go bare?
I do both I love to have my nails all nice and polished. Before my son I would get them done at the salon every 2 weeks.. that was when life was nice and I could afford it HAHA!
I hate messing with my nails and cannot paint them very good myself! So I go and get pink & whites every month. Believe it or not, its pretty low maintenance My nails never break, never have to polish them, dont have to file or anything, and a they always look nice!
They last a month? My coworker just got that done and they look nice, I think she's had them for 3 weeks so far and she likes them!
Also don't have time or $$ for manicures, I polish them myself, but then can go for 2-3 weeks before I have time to redo them so they don't always look so pretty... but who's looking, right?
I go bare. Polish destroys my nails. If I have anything on them for more than a couple days, they start peeling in layers
I go bare most of the time. Definitely when I'm pg as who knows what leaches into your body from that polish! Anyways, in the summer I sometimes do my toes for fun if I know I'll be showing them off. DD is getting into polish now and has some kid friendly stuff so I can see us doing it lots this summer. She got some blue piggy polish for her birthday yesterday. Now she has blue, purple and pink!
Well maybe I should say I don't get them done again for a month! lol. They do last about 3 weeks though and just grow out which is why you get a fill but usually I let them go for a month cause I hate going but like the end result!
Bare; don't have the time/money to get them done - I have only had them done once for prom (with tips) and never again. It was SOOO painful to take them off. For my wedding I just grew them out and had them painted.
Anyway, if I did them at home they would just all peel off after a couple days anyway.
I DO do my toenails when it gets warmer because it seems to last way longer on my toes.
