We need some polls... — The Bump
Infertility Veterans

We need some polls...

Today is my Sunday.  Then I will be back at work for the next few days.  I think we need some polls so I can waist some time, then I will not have to clean my house.

I will start with a Nail poll.

 

Do you frequent the nail salon?

Are you an acrylic, gel nail/shellac, or traditional polish girl? 

Do you do nail art (polka dots, flowers, etc)?

Do you change up your nail color or nail art or do you like to keep it the same?  

Do your toe nails match your finger nails?

Pip your nails or the color your nails are now or you fav. nail design of the past:)

  • Do you frequent the nail salon? Not as much as I used to, but I do still go.

    Are you an acrylic, gel nail/shellac, or traditional polish girl?  Just polish.

    Do you do nail art (polka dots, flowers, etc)? I only do my toes, not my nails, so sometimes I will do a fun art on my big toe...if I have a good excuse (like a holiday) to splurge!

    Do you change up your nail color or nail art or do you like to keep it the same? Mine changes.

    Do your toe nails match your finger nails? I use my hands too much, so my fingers are always clear, with a color on my toes!

    Pip your nails or the color your nails are now or you fav. nail design of the past:)

    Can't pip from work,  but my favorite color is a turquiose on my toes. I ALWAYS do this before I go on vacation!

    I love to get my nails did :)

    My DH and my mom think I choose designs that are more teen style's.  I really don't care.  Overall, I'm pretty frugal and nails are where I spend money and like be creative and fun.
