This is the question I always ask myself. I always have nail polish on, so not wearing any polish is out of the question. I love it too much. But I can never decide if should spend the money every 2 weeks to get my nails done.
When I do go to the salon, I get acrylics put on. I like having hard and longer nails than I naturally have. Annie, the lady that does my nails, does a great job and I always end up loving my nails. I just hate spending the money. It ends up being $40 a month to go every two weeks.
So I go through cycles. I will get my nails done for two months and then I tell myself I am just going to paint my nails myself from now on. (I do not even go back to the salon to get my acrylics taken off, so my nails end up looking really bad for about a month!). When I try to paint my nails myself, they end up looking really bad. Plus, I wait until the color is almost all chipped off until I attempt to paint them again. Point I am trying to make is that my nails look BAD when I do not go to the salon.
This time, I think I am going to be serious about going to the salon. I can't keep going to work with bad nails. I love having them done, so I think I will spend the extra money to get them done!
