So- I'm a little obsessed with the craziness of acrylic nails right now. I never really wore fake ones OR painted them much, and my nail biting is probably my boyfriends least favorite thing that I do.
BUT- About 2 years ago, I discovered these extravagent things, and fell in love! I don't like them long--or TOO ornate since it looks like you can't open doors and it would get snagged on clothes...and it's ugly-too much of a good thing.
I like the querky element-I used wear mismatched socks under my jeans in high school I felt I wasn't being fully "me" when I went for the plain ones.
AND-when I saw that Katy Perry loved them, it only boosted my love for the nail art.
