Getting My Nails Done
So pretty soon I want to get my nails done, but I'm thinking of going to a place I haven't been yet (even though I've only gotten my nails done twice before). Anyhow, this place only charges $22 for acrylics and I'm thinking, "Whoa, that's really cheap. .. maybe too cheap." And that price isn't even the student discount price. So do you think that it's this cheap because they use that cheap stuff that is bad for yor nails? I have heard before about that and I always think the more expensive the better the quality. Also, I'm thinking about getting crystal nails instead of acrylic. What's the difference and what do you prefer?

Be sure to ask what she uses and it all depends wether she is doing nails out of her house (it's cheaper because she doesn't pay for her chair) there are many factors in what makes prices cheap.

my parents want to know what i want but i can't decide please help

this may seem stupid but...

does anybody have one of those SanDisk Sansa e250R Rhapsody 2GB MP3 Players? I want to know if it fits with a nano skin or cover. Also I might get a SanDisk Sansa m240 1GB MP3 Player... which is better. I really don't know which one to get I know this might not go in this catagory but I need to know with in 3 hrs 'cause my mom is at best buy waiting for the first year. It is the only way I can get an ipod. I heard the e205 is just like an ipod nano.
if any of you have an ipod could you tell me the dimensions of the skins, socks, or cover.
could you please send me the answer through the "e-mail" on this thing. thank you so much......(oh, I put this same message on many pages so that nobody thinks I am plagerizing or something.)

Ps. the acrylic and the crystal are pretty much the same itz just the crystal has a latex coat over it!

DONT go to a cheap salon, go to a good one! The cheapest salons that offer really low prices often use methyl-methacrylate also known as MMA as the adhesive for the acrylic nails, it is toxic and dangerous to use.  autytec  article  s/mmafacts.htm this site has good information and you should read it if youre comtemplating having your nails done, I am going to get mine done because i think they look great but make sure you know ptential risks first, your health is important.

Id rather spend 8 more and feel confident that they'll stay on.

here when you get your nails done it's 20$ ( that's the student price) and then when you want to get them re-filled it's 12$ which i think is a good price. The prices you are talking about seem really great too! the last time i got them done was for my birthday so i got a french tip but instead of the whole nail being clear it was a light pink and then the white tip at the top.. i really liked it.. and then they added on jewels on the pinky finger because it was my birthday :)

When I get my nails done, they do a great job, and its $20 to get them, and a free airbrushed on all your nails. Then to get them filled its $13, again with free airbrushing. $22 isn't bad. No fake nails are actually good for your nails, so just don't keep them on for too long.

Seriously -- putting anything like that on your nails isn't healthy for them. The place that I go is 25 for the nails & 15 for fills. But, I usually don't keep them on that long .. just so that my nails can "breathe".

but, I don't think that 22 is that bad ..

Ah seriously does it matter weither or not it is good for your nails? I dont really know. I do my own and it is alot cheaper. For a few weeks afterward I usually use some special nail polish that helps build there strength. This process cost me about 5 bucks. I dont care I guess Im cheap.

everywhere i go except the beauty school is 25 for a full set (getting them on) and 15 for a fill. you can always ask what kind of acrylic they use.

i dont really think that is 2 cheap... the place where i go charges me 15 dollars every time i get fills, and it costed me 25 dollars to get the nails on. so i dont think 22 dollars is to bad.
