Just wondering to get acrylics or Shellac for hols
14/05/2013 at 10:56
It didn't on mine, they started to lift and that got the better of me..
Don't you normally get Shellac for holiday? I find it lasts about 7days before it starts to lift and get caught in my hair / start picking etc. I'll be keeping my acrylics but having a gel UV top coat to help the colour last as I find the colour fades quicker with acrylics.

No, I get acrylics usually Belle. Do you get coloured Acrylics then? I usually just get french.
I have french acrylics on at the moment and Shellac toes

I've never had a problem with it over here. I tend to use Gellish more often (that's what my spa offers but if I see a deal on Cobone for Shellac, I go for it) Never had acrylics so can't judge those. Long fingernails scare me

Yeah I never have french, love a bit of colour me. Currently sporting Nails inc Kensington Mall on fingers & toes. Very pretty.

So how long do you have them then?

I would have acrylics if thats what you normally have, i think a week tops for shellac in the sun (with the sun cream etc they seem to go goey on me!) I will just be painting my own for holiday! will have a foot spa manicure before I go though

My acrylics? I usually have them about a good cm over the tip of my finger but this week I've had them cut really short. Me no like but had to be done as my nail underneath was breaking and making them weak.

I don't like them too long, personal choice though as I always think other peoples look nice long (apart from Jessie J with her pointy green talons!)

Urgh I hate them too! The guy who does mine keeps begging to let me do them in pointy Lady Gaga style. I keep telling him to do one.
I prefer long nails as they make your fingers longer
Thats about the lengthI have mine. I might get mine coloured acrylics actually,

I'm finding these really stumpy. I don't like them but needed doing.

Ew, the stiletto ones? They are yuck

Is that what they are called Fi? I think they are rank.

Yep, I learnt that the other week lol. They're horrible x

It doesn't last for me but that's because my nails grow so much in the sun it grows out. Acrylics would too. I just get mine manicured then paint as required. Shellac on my toes lasts forever I just had some on for eight weeks including our holiday abroad.
Belle - its more the shape I don't like on the picture. Very harsh? They would look longer a little rounder?

I've just been in Greece for a week, had the shellac done the week before I went, and it was absolutely fine. Would have lasted longer too but last night I decided to start picking it off .... that was a big mistake as I've trashed my nails.
