Ok, so my bf and I are going to have a girls day this coming week (hopefully) and the means, shopping, pizza (or a nice "sit down" place, not sure yet) and getting our nails done. She's had acrylics for about a year now and she works at her dad's florist and plays the mandolin and guitar and piano..oh and the fiddle, so I figure if she can do all that with those nails on I can survive my life going to school, teaching piano and waiting tables with acrylics on.... Here's my dilema....I don't want them to look....fake, just long and pretty. I used to have nice long luxurious nails, but because I thought this dumb guy thought that because I had long nails I didn't do anything, I chopped them all off and can't get them to grow back the way they used to be....So I want acrylics. I know there's the white tips that everyone has...Amanda's, my friend, her's look awesome on her but I have a strong feeling I'd get really sick of the white tips. That's like a "french manicure" right? I don't know. It's been so long since my Mom had acrylic's I don't know what to do! HELP ME! PLEASE!
