I hate painting my nails a bright color and only prefer clear nail polish. Half the time I don't even wear nail polish because it is such a chore putting it on and then it chips anyway so I end up taking it off. I also don't wear fake nail because my nails are pretty long, to begin with. I don't get manicures or pedicures either because they just don't appeal to me. I guess I am plain when comes to things like that.


Is there any girls here who feel the same way? If you don't then that is fine too. Do whatever makes you feel happy.


What do you think?

Yes. It just isn't practical, for me. I even keep my nails cut short, too. That said; I do think manicures do sound nice, minus the optional nail polish. I treat it akin to a bucket list item.

When I was younger I would paint them in crazy colors and glitter. Now I can’t stand it. If I paint my nails now it has to be clear, light pink or red (classic colors).
I can’t wear nailpolish every day because I’m not allowed to in my job.

it's a waste of money. I have some left over from Halloween adventures and such, but to use it naw, not interested. I keep them so short because I'm a major tomboy and, trust me, the idea of getting my nails ripped off because I'm mowing or something (had it done), it's painful, so short it be. and painting short nails are meh, what's the point, sort of thing. for sport I use to use permanent markers, white out... it's already available why buy nail polish!

No I like to paint my nails when I have the time.

It’s never really appealed to me, so I’ve actually never painted my nails at all. My nails are perfectly fine the way they are: if they were meant to be a different color, they would be ...ya, ok I’m just too lazy to even try it

As a guy I personally prefer natural or a slight shine. So keep on not painting your nails it looks better. Hate it when women obsess about not running their nails.

I'm not very good at and usually prefer the results when others do it for me. That said, I'm too cheap to get my nails done often and also have a job where I have to keep my nails short. So... dislike isn't the right word. but I don't always do it.

I used to pain them all the time, but as I grew older, I just didn't care for the maintenance that goes into it. Now I keep them clipped short and with no polish. I don't mind clear coat once in a while, but I prefer to just keep 'em very natural and clean. With that said, I really admire nail art, though. I think it's amazing to see the sorts of things people can create! It's very artistic.

I painted my nails when I was younger, but the older I got, the more of a pain it seemed. It just wasn't really worth it; as long as my nails look clean and hygienic, I'm not too bothered about much else.
That being said, I've seen a lot of cool nail art (I'm 100% sure they're fake nails though). There's a lot of great anime-style nail art out there, and t's pretty amazing!

I don't like it unless it's clear nail polish. I mean,... nail polish is a cute concept... but I just don't have the time and patience for it.

+ I bite my nails

I enjoy it but the nail polish will make my nails brittle and they will break after a week or so. If I don't paint my nails they grow out nice. Has anyone else had that issue?

I just use regular nail polish from the drug store. Is there a way to prevent it from breaking your nails?
