What Are Your Thoughts On Fake Nails/acrylic Nails?

Hey all,

I was thinking what were your thoughts on acrylics and fake nails in general,

Every couple of years or so, I go through this phase where I want to get my nails done (acrylics), and now is one of those times. I have been a nail biter since I was a kid, and have a stopped biting temporarily a few times here and there, but never permanently. I am preggo and feeling like I need to do something extra to "perk up" my appearance now that I've finally gone from frumpy housewife to doing my hair and makeup every day (this board really helps to motivate me to help me looking my best, too!)

So, I guess I was wondering if you all like them, think they're tacky, too expensive, etc, and If I should just get them, although they get pricey with the fill-ins etc, (I told my husband it was an investment in my self-esteem, lol! ). Btw, the times I do end up getting my nails done, I usually go for about 3 or 4 months then I quit going and let them grow out/ take 'em off (ouch!),

So, what do you guys think?

I have it on right now. I got it done at the Nail Store in Wal Mart. I forgot the name. It cost 40 bucks.

hello,

i think false nails are the saviour of the woman who has tried to grow beautiful nails but cant quite get it right either because they lead busy lives or because they just can't get their own nails to grow. as long as they occasionally give their nails time to grow, i say "you go girl".
