October this year I strated wearing mine. Didn't before due to my day job I didnt think they would be any good. I was my own worse advert with my old, crappy nails!!
Now, I would be lost without them and it's taught me that it's not always my fault when thye come off clients! I am a decorator still,,,,,,,,(1 month to go!! yeah!! ), and I have never lost a nail!

Since i was 16! Am 22 now (nearly 23) so 6-7 year.

I think i have only had 6month brake in all the time.

i feel like i have had the ends of my fingers cut off when i havent got them on.

I started getting my nails done when I was about 14 or 15. If I couldn't get in to the salon I would do them at home (bad, I know!). I went to nail school when I was 18 and have been doing them on others as well as myself ever since! Oh, I'm 27, so what is that 12 years or so?

:lol:Me too, but mine's not 14 until January.

I only wore acrylic for about the first 8 years, but now I change between acrylic, soak-off gel & file-off gel. I go through stages where I have different favorites.:)

I started with fibreglass about 26 years ago (and you think you fell old?) then I changed to Acrylic, I wore them for 16+ years without a brake (I had no natural nails left. They took about 18 months to repair) I have been the last 3 years without until I found Calgel colour that I have been using as an overlay for the last 6 weeks :lol:

Started wearing them when I was 17 off and on for about 13 years, then decided to train in 2000 and have worn them for the last 7 1/2 yrs only removing when training.
