When it comes to my nails I’d say they’re au-naturel, or very, very natural. The most I do is a quick file to whip them into some kind of presentable length and shape. There’s no buff or polish and I rarely get fancy manicures. Heck, the last time I had them done was for a ‘clean manicure’ AKA not like a manicure at all. And the time before that would have been French tip acrylics for my year ten school formal.
However, since I was heading overseas for two-and-a-half weeks of rest and relaxation I didn’t want to worry about having ‘pretty’ fingertips while out for dinner, or dealing with weak nails from too much swimming, so I did some digging and came across SNS (Signature Nail Systems), created to rival traditional acrylic, gel and shellac nail methods, it’s said to help reduce the amount of liquid monomers (the chemical odour you can smell in salons) and toxins in the air (and on your fingers) and to improve overall nail health.
