Since I’ll want time to get ready (makeup/hair) before the actual event, I’ll probably do my nails the day/night before. This works well for me because I’m not the neatest nail painter, so the polish I got around my nails will come off in the shower on the big day.
I pretty much always have my nails done. I’m a nail polish junkie!

I do the same:D and totally agree with “will come off in the shower on the big day” and also consider myself a nail polish junkie 😛

Not for a night out, but I will change to a fun, possibly sparkly, nail polish for holidays, like Christmas and New Years!

I use Gelish nail polish. Keeping my hands nice is important to me, so I wanted to keep my polish routine easy, but high-quality. I can use my hands, avoid chips and everything stays go out-ready.

I always do my nails myself. I am good at it, and no one really stops and grabs my hands to examine my nails.

I have really good news! I have been accepted to Columbia University! *dances a jig*

My nails are always painted, so I like to match them with my make up or clothes for a special occasion. So yes, it’s like a habit.

Usually, it is rare if I don’t! If I have time for nothing else, then I do a top coat to give them a gloss. I tend to paint them the evening before or in the morning but end up taking it off the next day if it was a night out due to drunken chipping! >.< No matter how good the polish and top coat, chipping does tend to occur when I go out.

For a big event, always! I love to have my outift, my hair, my makeup, jewellery and nails all figured out a few days before. For a night out, I try to put on a complete new manicure, but most of the time I run out of time 🙁

I try to do my nails the day before, since I always need ages for my hair on the day of.

I do my nails every few days, so anyways I’m used to doing them big event or not. If there is a special occasion, though, I will probably take a little longer to do a full-on manicure.

On the contrary, nails are the first thing that I do before an important event! It’s a real ritual for me, I have to have my finger and toe nails perfectly ready, even if I’m planning to wear closed shoes or gloves lol And I usually choose a dark-vampy red, I find it so edgy and elegant and it goes with everything!

I always plan to, but it never really seems to work out that way. Knowing my planning skills, I’ll probably have chipped blue nail polish on for my wedding.

Yes definitely, that’s actually th most important thing for me, I’d hate to go out with chipped nail polish, that ruins the whole appearance.

Yes, definitely!! I would’t be able to feel ok with myself with bad nails. I know I do it more for me than for others but I actually feel that, even though my hair and makeup are perfect, without beautiful nails I’m incomplete.
