Do you get regular manicures or only do them for special occasions?
Do you do your own manicures?
What is your favorite nail polish color and/or brand?

I don't get manicures, I keep my nails short and natural b/c of the line of work I'm in. But I'm all about pedis!!

I go to the salon, let them pamper me a bit.

My favorite all time color is OPI "I'm not really a waitress" a dep red! Beautiful for toes!!

As you probably could of guessed from my siggy picture down there, I do enjoy nail polish.

I do my own mani/pedis and the best brands for me are actually the cheaper ones! OPI and Essie don't last that long on my nails. Forever 21 nail polishes are actually amazing quality, Rimmel is also fantastic but they don't have many colors. Revlon is great too.

That's a fav with my mom and I too Stacie! I don't get my nails done sometimes I'll paint them when I'm feeling fancy. Good to know about f21 opi is my favorite brand but kinda pricy so I don't have too many colors

I get manicures very rarely... like once a year. I usually end up doing my own. When I do them, I honestly am into the decals. I use jamberry. They last for 2-3 weeks for me and don't chip like nail polish.

I have never gotten a manicure I usually paint my nails black, I just like how it looks. But I don't have a favorite brand, I just get whatever is cheapest at wherever store I'm buying it from.

Wet 'n Wild sells the BEST black nail polish and it is so cheap! I like to paint my nails black, use a matte top coat (Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love, Walmart ), let it dry and then drag a quick drying shiny top coat along the tips, French mani with an edge style!

Sorry if that was way more info than you cared to know lol. I just like to share. http://http://hautemacabre.com/2012/...ck-on-black-3/

I am so not a girly-girl. I'll paint my nails maybe once a year, usually if it goes with my Halloween costume. Then the polish chips off for the next couple months since I'm too lazy to use nail polish remover - lol.

I get manicures rarely, the polish always chips too quickly. A few weeks ago I got the stick on nail polish, like a sticker, and it lasted a couple weeks. I get pedicures on special occasions.

I've never had a manicure, (that I can think of?) in my life. I've had horses since the age of 11, & currently own 5, so no point really

And nail polish seriously irritates me. I put it on, think it's pretty, then the moment it gets a chip I have to take it back off again.

I manicure my own but we also pamper each other at the salon I work at once in a while as a treat. We use OPI and I love the huge range of colors. Being a hairstylist it doesn't stay on for very long with my being in the shampoo bowl constantly but I still polish them here and there. Definitely if we have an occasion to go to. Otherwise I try to keep the OPI Nail Envy strengthener on them at least.

I go for pedicures every other month during the winter and usually every three weeks or so during the summer. I also LOVEEEE OPI's I'm not really a waitress on my toes!! <3

My new years resolution was to quit chewing my nails and I used Hoof Hands kick the habit and it worked well. Now I go to the salon for a mani and polish every other week. I usually have to change my polish at home on the off week. I've done the gel polish and it's stay power is incredible, but it really wears down my nails.

I don't do my nails, but I DO love pedicures. I splurge for a pedicure 1-2 times a year. Otherwise I just do 'em myself!

I have never had a manicure or pedicure, and I haven't painted my nails since I was in high school. I am a really low-maintenance kind of gal!

The last time I painted my nails was for my wedding I think! I have had one pedi and it was a bad experience. I do my own and its so much nicer! I love burgundy on my toes or clear sparkle.

My toes STAY painted because I wear flip flops like 10 months out of the year! I love getting french tips at the salon, but usually save it for special occasions since it's so pricey. I paint my nails every now and then and love Essie polishes!
