Does anyone get their nails done at the salon?

I was really wanting to get them done for the summer months but now I am really toying with the idea of trying to do this myself. I don't know if I can do it but if I do and get good at it I am going to make a blog post with step by step instructions.

I don't go to the salon to get them done unless it is a special occasion like a wedding or something.

I just usally paint them myself I don't give myself a manicure at all.

That sounds cool! I have never had my nails done professionally. I just paint them with nail polish occasionally, although at christmas I use a small brush and a tooth pick to paint designs on them like holly leaves.

Very cool! You will have to show them off on JM next time you do them. I may try doing designs but I want to just figure out how to do them at all first. I am a chronic nail biter which is partly why I want to do this.

Okay so I went and bought a kit at the store. I did Angie's nails and mine last night. I have spent hours messing with them and they still don't look perfect. Kelly is like you should just pay for them if it is going to take that much time. I think it is funny because he was the one saying not to waste my money on them. LOL.

But, I am going to keep trying because I think with practice I can get the hang of it. If I ever get them looking good I will post a pic with a tutorial on how to do them but I need more practice first.
