    Hey guys

    I just got my nails done with gel extensions and a bit of bling and I can't stop looking at them!



    What are you guys doing with your nails?

    Something super elaborate?





    Or something super simple?

    Work has killed my nails, unfortunately But even then I only wear nail varnish rarely, as my nails seem to get more damaged when I do (even using base coat).
    I've never had proper extensions put on, but when I tried diy ones I hated them as they were just too long and in the way - though I know they do look nice

    Just clear nail varnish- my nails are too short and bitten for coloured nail varnish to look right. I really should invest in something to stop nail-biting, any suggestions?

    I use jessica nibble no more...and try to paint them even though it looks rubbish at the moment...I find that combination works well Dark colours are meant to look better on shorter nails so I use a burgundy :yes:
    Or if you've got some money to spend on it apparently getting some good quality false nails put on can work really well because you can't get at your nails to bite them :p:

    I use Barry M blue glittery stuff almost all the time. It's AWESOME! That with a couple of coats of Sally Hansen Mega Shine and you get a really good finish

    This. I have a Rimmel strengthener on now and have them shortish for once. Stupid deliveries at work plus money + boxes seem to really weaken my nails, they keep chipping. I don't like the look of extentions though, I'd prefer a french manicure if I can be bothered.

    Nothing at the moment. Exams have made me bite them so they look horrible .

    Might put a colour on them later just to jazz them up a bit.

    absolutely nothing. Sometimes I paint them, but I forget to take it off, and then I just end up with scruffy remnants until it totally wears away. Call me lazy...:rolleyes:

    Nothing. The only thing I've been putting on them recently is Stop 'n Grow, but when the taste wears off I keep forgetting to redo it.
