    When you go to the salon, what do you usually have done to your nails? What color or design(s) do you like? ... and how about for your toenails? :flower:

    I give myself manicures... I've become quite good at it too... saves a few pennies at the nail salon too. ;)

    do you use tape for your french manicures? or just "wing it"? :blush:


    I've given myself french manicures before as well. I've tried to give myself a french pedicure before but for some reason it doesn't turn out as well. :p one would think it would be easier to do it on toenails since you have your "good hand" for both feet. unless of course you're ambidextrous

    Usually just a classic french manicure on nails that aren't very long, but nicely shaped.

    For my toes, it's usually nude, soft pinks, or sometimes a classic deep red :blush:

    Oh, and I'm not a crazy fan of glitter either.

    wing it! if the light/white color is new and really liquidy and thin, it is fairly easy. Essie is good b/c the brush isn't too thick.

    I've never had a pedicure before. I've read too many articles about women who develop some sort of fungus on their feet after getting pedicures at unsterile salons. :sick: I'm also nervous about someone else touching my feet. I use scrubs on my feet at home and moisturize but maybe I should be doing more... I don't want people to think I have gross feet when I wear sandals in the summer. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    My nails, I just put a clear strengthener on... I'm so lazy :cry:
    My toes, however, are always immaculate in red, hot pink, burgundy... :woot:

    I've read the same kind of things in magazines too. Just make sure that the salon has a good repuatation.
    I used to be a nail technican and i was obsessed with my nails but now i've calmed down and have very simple short chic nails. :flower:

    there is no way id be caught with icky nails.... EVER. if anyone does consider them icky there must be a deeper reason behind... ... no, actually that'll never happen. :ninja: :lol:

    my nails grow extremely fast so i need maintaining once to twice a week! :wacko:

    however, they are always kept short and chic and square :flower: . i dont like super long and pointy nails :yuk:

    colorwise. usually french on hands and depending on outfit and shoes some kinda color.. lately its been ELECTRIC PINK by Mavala :heart: :blush:

    I'm the opposite of Leyla. Right now, my nails are torn up! I've been doing a lot of yardwork in the evenings right when I get home from work, and all weekend long, so I have dirt completely ground into my cuticles and big old calluses on my palms and the base of each finger. I keep my nails cut super-short (to the quick) because otherwise I will bite them.

    Of my feet, the less said the better. I cut my toenails, and that's about it. Nobody is seeing my feet--they don't get let out into the light of day! They're UUUUUGLY!

    Nothing is polished right now, though sometimes in the winter, when I am doing less DIY and gardening, I will paint my nails, but it is almost always some tasteless and wretched, unnatural and insane color, like purple, orange, silver, or metallic yellow-green. Because I am always doing something with my nails, the polish invariably gets dents in it before it dries and gets chipped and scuffed up by the next day anyhow, then it looks horrible, and I get the fidgets and scrape it all off with a thumbnail.

    I suck at being a girl!

    I've actually never been to the salon to get my nails done. I'd like to one day though, when I feel like splurging.
    Since I wanted to do myself up a bit today, my fingers are now black, while my toes are pink with little black hearts. :p

    i'm hopeless when it comes to doing nails.. whether on myself or anyone else. i just suck :(

    my nails are too short right now so i'm going to wait until next week to get them done. i always get french but with black. as in my nails are black with a white tip. not the other way around. i'm thinking about doing black with a red or white design though.

    on my toes.. i have a regular french pedicure
