The NAILS thread
 
I know most of us polish our nails, go get them done with designs or airbrush. Just wanted to star a thread to share what color we're sportin or design etc.. Keep this thread in mind for when you do your nails, take a picture and post it here ;) please

Or if you see a cute design you want to share, post the pics here..
(Hands and feet pics)

Here are some:

My daughter had her tips done red and then had zebra stripes over them. It looked really nice.

I just get manicures. I never actually get acrylic nails, because my natural ones are nice and thick already. I usually just use black and get some colored glitter to paint over the black. Other times, I'll get my tips painted black or white. lol


Don't know if it's real or photoshopped, but they look pretty dope.

I dont get fake nails either, just manicures. My nails grow very long and strong, sometimes when I wouldnt want them to risk for them to break I would get just the acrylic but on top of my real nail not fake ones.. I do a lot of the designs I have myself with the Konad stamp art.. i love that

My nails are so thin they just break and the nail polish doesn't even hold on for long anyways, so a manicure is a waste of money for me. I have to go for the full set.

That one looks REALLY cute (and summery)!

But finding a place to do them as good as in that pic... *sigh* :-|

The only thing I notice is my nails grow fast, but they are still pretty thin.

Re: The NAILS thread
 
Yeah they are. And I guess they are stronger than they ever have been. But still... I tried to put nail polish once and it just flakes off like in 10 min. Maybe I'm just rough on my nails? LOL!!

Mine are usually natural nails, but ill paint them.. I dont like the idea on spending my money on getting them done when i can do them myself.
I love the Opi colors and the polish is awesome.

Opi has the best colors. I don't get my nails done, but I do take care of them myself. I've been sporting some bright colors because of summer, but that's almost over :(

I don't do acrylic at all. I didn't use them when I was young, because they'd get in my way. Since then, I've never cared much about using them. I just take care of my hands and nails now. I'm lucky to have nice thick nails though. When I let them grow, chicks always ask me if they're fake, and then fuck with them when I tell them that they're not. hahaha
