Acrylic Nails

Since everybody been posting there pretty hair colors and since my big thing is nails instead of hair, at least right now I thought I would post some of my acrylic nail designs. This is my current one, they're shorter than I like, but oh well.

I am a guy so am not into acrylic nails myself, but yours look nice. I think the nail length is about right, any longer you wouldn't be able to do anything with your hands.

Thanks Tippa. Actually I usually have them very long and I don't have any problems, I've had nails for over 20 years so I'm really used to it, but even if I put the shortest nails on my Mom, she acts like she has aliens on her hands, so funny.

This is off topic, but......

tippa - All this time I thought you were a female! So I must apologize in case I've referred to you that way!

very cool! Ultimately, I want acrylics again but right now it's just not in the budget. Once I find a job tho, unless it's food service or the vet, I plan on getting them back!

haha, that made me laugh. I do have feminine hands, If you saw pics and videos of my hands then it's perfectly understandable. However I don't think I have got feminine voice.

Thank you. They charge ridiculous prices at the salon. I've never had mine done at a salon, for multiple reasons and the price is one.

They look better in person, I just can't seem to get a really good pic

Thanks Kennedy.

I can see where that would be a problem for you to have them, thats too bad. Some of mine get scared if I have the really long black tips, most just try to rip them off, acrylics are the only bird proof nails.

Hmm, I never realized that so many people had trouble doing things with acrylic nails, I must be the odd duck

When I was little my mother told me back in time in her native country only the people with great wealth would have long nails because they have the servants doing all the work for them.

If your friend has an inch long nails, she is a person of great wealth and not have to do any work at all then?.

I'm only kidding. You guys must be used to working with long nails of course.

My birds hate my nails painted but they get over it. It completely depends on the colour. My nails grow pretty long but I'm always knocking the darn things off or catching them and pulling them off!

Yours are really cool though! Very modern sort of design

Your nails look great. I had long nails until the Patriots made it to the playoffs and between the playoff games and the dreadful Super Bowl, I chewed most of them off. Now I'm trying to get them to grow again but I keep picking away at them from stress. Lots of stressful unpleasant things happening lately....
