Does anybody know of any cheap places to get your nails done in the bexleyheath area? I would like it to be cheap but saying that I do not want it to look like I didn't pay much money for them. I want them to look presentable but be in the £15-£20 mark. Thank you x

It's always worth checking Groupon. I usually pay about £25 for a gel manicure but recently found out that, through Groupon, I can get the same manicure, from the same place, for about £15.

I know this isn't answering your question but you should really try to grow them out. I used to have a great nail strengthening cream by Clarins, and force yourself not to bite them. Also, don't leave gel on and let it chip off, or nail polish for that matter - this is pretty bad for your nails; there's probably a wikihow about growing them. I have great nails and I am telling you: holy **** it is 100% worth the effort. They never look tacky and you save yourself a lot of money/time (good nail polish - maybe Nails Inc - and a decent top coat lasts me at least 5 days with no chipping). And you can just remove that **** yourself, none of this booking appointments for application/removal or fake nails growing out and looking crazy.

I love Nails Inc stuff although I still find that it's prone to chipping. Gel nails do cost a lot but, with work and everything, they last so much longer. Also, I have a young child. So doing my nails at home is always tricky because she always needs feeding, nappy change etc when my nails are still wet. If only there was some really quick drying nail polish that doesn't chip so easy.

For variety, I sometimes paint a different colour over the gel.

I love their colours! I don't find that it chips, but a) I use a Dior top coat and b) I don't wash dishes or scrub things etc. If you dip your nails in freezing water, that speeds up the drying process. But I see your point, my nails grow very quick so gel/fake is actually a waste, since standard nail polish won't even chip by the time they start to grow out. I didn't consider this. And also, where I stay (Glasgow) some places will do it for £15 (tends to be in random areas), places in the city will do it for £25, some very reputable places will do it for £28-£30 and House of Frasers is like £40. I was so disappointed when I got mine done at HoF and never went back.

Have you tried the Nails Inc magnetic nail polish? It's discontinued now but it's my favourite nail polish of all time. If it were possible to have nail polish permanently tattoo'd, that's what I'd have.

Can you believe that I've actually had nail salon's refuse to take a booking from me, because I'm a guy?

No I have never tried this! Damn . I just bought YSL Pink Savage and it's the best thing ever! But I am normally pretty boring and go for nudes like Montpelier Walk by Nails Inc or Palais Royal by Dior. I got Peche Nacree by Chanel but tbh I don't really wear it, not muted enough for my samey ass.

That's insane, I am actually really shocked because there are several male makeup artists in the beauty hall of my nearest Frasers and nobody gives a ****. Plus haven't guys been painting their nails since the 80's? Come on man

Ah, shame. If you were based near Brighton, I'd have looked forward to supporting your venture by becoming a customer.
