Artificial nails rarely look good; most people do them wrong by getting ones that are way too big and end up looking like a scary, creepy lady.  I personally have never tried them because my nails are great on their own.  I think they are just one more example of unnecessary superficiality.

I stick with my real nails. I don't like fakes cuz you can rip off part of the real nail if the fake 1 breaks or when you take them off.

I've had both but have never figured out a way to get rid of a split in one nail that I've had for years. :(

I have had "fake" nails several times, and I really didn't like them at all. Yes, they looked very nice but i do not keep my natural nails very long so i had a very hard time with doing normal everyday tasks. not to mention that it totally ruined my natural nails and takes forver for them to grow back

I have always had long nails. Sure they break but grow back even longer like now.  I have seen what the artificial nails can do your nails and its really gross and looks unhealthy.

I wish i could get my nails to grow they grow then break off so i usually try to get my nails done. I have some friends who get the fake nails on their toes and that they say hurts. But i dont think i would want any on, my toes

Artificial are too costly for the upkeep, and it takes months for your real nails to recoop after having the fakes taken off, Real for me from now on!

I prefer artificial. I am a pianist and constantly break my nails if I don't have the artificial ones.
