I personally love natural french manicures, I've never had acrylic or gel nails before. I also don't understand the obsession with those embellished nails..I think they're too long for functionable use of your hands and I think I'd be more annoyed than anything else that I couldn't open a can of pop without breaking it !

I read somewhere yesterday that Beyonce puts images of Jay-Z on her nails as decals so that he'd always be with her or something cheesy like that. hahah

Wow, never heard of american manicure before in my life until now. lol
I too, think that french & american manicures look cheap. I'm guess they look cheap because they are so common? Yes, I think they are pretty but it gets boring after awhile, in my opinion. Personally, I just like to have a gloss coat or a dark colour like a deep purple clack or navy blue etc

If I had to have either a french or an american manicure I'd go american.

^ That is frightening too long! How can you wear them, wouldn't your hands be non-functionable? and what is the beauty about them?

I hadn't heard of the American one until now. I like neither, but if forced to choose, I would vote for the American one.

I like some of the nail art (sponge art, decals, stamping), though I would never have my nails as long as the ones that were posted. Long, yes, but not that long. I also wouldn't go as far as to stick on gemstones and three-dimensional flowers.

Can you imagine going about your normal life with structures like these glued to your excessively long talons?
