    Does anyone go every couple of weeks to have these things filled . I hate these things, I really do . Since my nails were so short, I decided I would go and have them put on for the wedding . I was doing pretty good letting them grow up to a week ago . I really thought I wanted a cigarette, but its been over a year . Instead, I bit my nails . I went with the pink & white gels . I had them cut down to a workable length . I had them done about 1:00 and WoW, do they hurt now . Is it from the drill or the weight of the gel pulling on my real nail ? I took a couple of Advils . When can I expect the soreness to go away ?

    depends on how far you bit them down..they should be fine tomorrow

    Usually a day or so.

    I got pink and white gels in Feb. I will NEVER do that again. My nails are now finally back to normal.

    I used to do them...a looooooooooooooong time ago....they've probably changed loads since I wore them, but they can do some *really* awful things to your real nails.

    What are pink and white gels? I have very strong nails that grow like weeds (and I keep them wicked short) so I've never learned about the kind you add on.

    The person who does them at the little spa place I go to for a pedicure has the WORST looking nails; all icky colored, thick, cracked and broken short. I'd never let her touch mine!

    EWWWWWWWWW...no, I don't think I would either.

    Our Headmistress was recently involved in an accident that fractured her toe...at the moment she has an "artificial" toe nail....

    No, actually, I have no idea why I thought that was topical.

    Well, nails are damaged regardless of what digit they are on, eh?

    But what are those gel things that Johnie and Tinker are referring to?
