I don't know if a thread has been started for this already but apologies if it has (I couldn't find one). I started having Acrylic Nails done in 1991 and kept them maintained with Permanent French Manicure until 2 years ago. I suddenly decided that all my friends nails looked really nice and I was the only one who had fake nails so I took them off. I have not had them done since and although I think they now look okay - when I look at the Jewellery subforum here and see lots of false nails I think about having mine done again - so tell me - what do you prefer, Fake Nails or Real Natural Nails? and should nails be painted or left natural? Photos would be good too if you wish!
