I have pretty nails (not trying to brag) and in the past when I get french manicure I usually get it on my own nails at nail places or do it on my own. I'm pretty good at it. However, it doesn't last long. I made appointment to get Shellac french manicure at the nail place I got to in town for a wedding I'm going to with BF this Saturday, but it costs $35. As much as I'd love to get french manicure, I know I shouldn't spend the money now. So, I'm thinking of cancelling my appointment. I did french on my toenails last week and spent about $35 already last week. I don't know how some people get manicures every few weeks. Being part time sucks sometimes. My coworker gets these fake french manicure nails from Target that come out really nice, but I'm always leary to use something like that because I don't want to mess my own nails up. Anyone done this? What brand do you use and how does it work? Do you use chemicals to apply? How do you remove it? Also, how do you get it to fit your nail shape properly? Where do you get it and how much does it cost? What do you suggest? I do my own french manicure the night before the wedding get the Shellac, or try some fake nails for cheaper? Thanks!
