    Hi ladies!

    I was just wondering what everyone did with their nails if you didn't get gel or acrylic nails. I haven't decided what to do yet! Should I leave them natural, paint them, get a french manicure?

    What did you do?

      I got a manicure the morning of the wedding. I just did a natural color so my nails wouldn't stand out.

        I got a manicure/pedicure the afternoon before. I used OPI funny bunny which is my favorite. It's an opaque white that is very natural.

          Hey Lisa! :)

          I got a French Manicure but for some reason I thought (at the time) that it would mean I would also be getting gel/acrylic nails so my nails were kind of on the short side when I went for my manicure and realized that it didn't include gel/acrylics lol. I liked my French Manicure a lot though and I would definitely recommend growing out your own nails a bit or to a length you like before going to get it done if that's what you choose.

              I did a bright orange on my toes and hands b/c I can't have too much color. I love the look of a French, but only on my feet not on my hands.

                After much debate im going to go with the Kiss French Glue on Nails. But till recently i was planning on a french manicure. My nails are long im just very unlucky and always end up breaking one at the last minute lol! Didn't want it to look uneven for the wedding..

                    I tried that twice this past year and after a week, the gel keeps lifting. I have my appointment here for waxing/pedi 1 week before the wedding and I was going to do gel, but obviously it's not gonna happen for me!

                      Yikes that's not good. I'm going next week to start the process so I will have a chance before Feb to correct it, if it doesn't work.

                      Why do you say it's not going to work for you?
