Just interested how you wear your own nails.

I'm always changing colour and doing nail art but never ever wear tips! Always use Bio Sculpture on my own currently they're purple (Bio - 2018 for anyone interested!)

Like you, I tend to change a lot. But at the moment, I have them very short, just at the top of my finger with gold glitter at the tip, and black flicks going up the nail in different directions.

I'm really a nail biter at heart. Once a biter always a biter I say, BUT when I am wearing enhancements I never bite them.

I always start out with a nice set of tips and then grow my nails out until I just have a natural nail overlay. I go on like this for months and then usually something happens like I don't rebalance them for 5 weeks and then I start to pick. At this stage I usually start all over again.

I now do my own nails using PopIts and a special technique I have developed and I never have a spot of bother with them. I wear them painted with good old CND SPIKE ... still a great colour. I am not at ALL into nail art of any kind on myself. In summer I go naturelle!!

At the moment I have a NNO on medium nails with Hyde in the Dark CND enamel over the top! Look lush aswell!

Toes are Hyde in the Dark aswell, with a smattering of tiny diamontes around the cuticle area! Always gotta be matching! :eek:

OOHHH my secrets out now LOL - I too used to be a biter, and I have only had about a months break in wearing enhancements in the past 12 months. I am so ADDICTED - LOL
Sometimes I wear tips, until my NN grows out, I like the look of not too short but not too long nails on me, with squarish round free edges, as I have big fingers and mostly flat nail beds UURRGGGG !!!!! - I love art, and at the moment I am wearing clear tips with black gel polish over tip from smile line to free edge and swirls and flecks in black white and red (yes Im strange) and YES I will get bored with them before my next refill and surely change the colour and art. :rolleyes: Sometimes I get bored and just wear NNO in one colour, and uses polishes.

Love that black angela- i'm a fan of avon bits too, especially their fast dry products! mine are short, painted with black enamel - no 17 nightshade fast finish - coloured glitter topcoat and stuck some stars on to jazz em up a bit. ruined em the other night though when i was doing a client - forgot that it was just enamel! ho hum
