I started getting mine done again (I go through an acrylics phase every few years) about 2 months ago, so I could get used to them again. I will probably keep them for a while after, then probably 6 months down the track will get sick of them! Hehe

From the person you are in your heart,
You can be who you want to be, Make us believe in you,
Keep all your light in the dark,
If you're searching for truth, You must look in the mirror,
And make sense of what you can see,
Just be.... Just Be..
and nothing can change that belief...
Just be... Just Be.

for my wedding I got aryclics and the looks cool..
For my sisters wedding I got party nails, and the morning of the wedding (even though I got them done the night before) i was back down at a salon getting 4 nails fixed because they had just fallen off.
For my SIL's wedding I got gel nails, and I knocked one finger in my handbag whilst fishing for something and the whole things snapped off..I found gel to be weak.
For my friends wedding in April I went back to aryclics..and they were sturdy and pretty! I left them on u p until about 2 weeks ago when I decided they might make chaning a babies bum a lil harder

I'm wondering if anyone can PM me the details of a good gel nail technician in the Melbourne area.
I had a set of real thin and natural looking gel nails put on a few weeks ago by this lovely technician but I just found out she has gone on a travelling holiday for the next 12 months......my nails are in some desperate help!!
Thank you all in advance.

It will take a few days for you to get use to, but you will not even notice them after that. The only other thing that you need to consider is that the acrylic WILL make your nails weaker. So you may want to consider that too before getting them put on....
I say, if you can grow yours out between now and then, do it. Otherwise there are fake ones to help!

I have crappy nails that split and peel and would love to have nice nails on my wedding day. I just don't know when I would need to get them done or started so they'd look nice on the day, or if I would just have to get acrylics...

With gel overlays. It is just gel being put on your real nail. I had some polish stuff put on my nails first so when I wanted to remove them they would be easier to remove.
My gel overlays lasted a lot longer then when I had acrylics.
I think it depends on who does your nails as to how long they will last.

I couldn't really justify paying to get the acrylics done for one day so my friend suggested just getting ones from kmart. She did it for her wedding and they looked so nice and natural. I cannot for the life of me think of the brand name. But they were only about $15 . It may have been something about hollywood ( or maybe not...) but she said to just get the natural length.
Geez my fingers look swollen in that photo! ( I don't have good circulation somedays)

Were they hard to put on or remove?
Did any fall off or break or anything?
I might try some out this weekend and see how they go.
