Ok, so I get married 2 weeks on Friday and np my nails are shit! I've worked hard on trying to get wm in good condition but they just break and currently my right hand nails are so short I look like a nail biter. I'm not, but my nail bed is so ridiculously short!

So my options are either really short gel nails or acrylic. I'm that desperate I'm considering acrylic. But short acrylic, as natural looking as poss. What do you think??

I wouldn't have acrylic. Go for gel nails that are short so that they look natural and if they don't have OPI sweetheart then buy a bottle and ask them to apply.

It's a lovely soft pink natural colour.

Try and find a local nail technician who used CND Brisa Lite Soak Off Gel enhancements, they won't damage your natural nails and have a lovely finish. You could then have them polished with Shellac which would allow a non chip manicure to ensure your nails stay perfect for your big day!

Thanks ladies, I just want them to look perfect but they're far from it!
