This person painted their own toe nails in a hurry. Photo taken in the outdoor area on a ferry.

Are you the type of woman who paints her own nails at home? Or do you prefer to relax and unwind, with a spa pedicure and manicure at a local nail salon?

If you're the type of person who loves to paint their own nails at home, then how often do you do so? Does this process get messy? If you like painting your own nails, do you ever visit a beauty salon?

Yes. Just my toenails though because I can't be bothered dealing with the polish on my fingernails chipping when I am doing housework all the time. It's not particularly messy. If I get a bit outside the nail I just wipe it off. I'm not doing anything fancy though, just a plain bright colour. I've never had them done professionally as there are other things I'd rather spend my money on.
I love to paint my own toenails - it lasts for ages so I just pick a bright colour that I like and go for it. I've had it done at the salon a couple of times and while the pedicure and being pampered is nice, it has been a royal pain to have to wait until it's dry enough to go - even with thongs on the ladies have fussed over my staying until they are completely dry. At home, I just paint and get on with my day without shoes on for a while! I don't bother with fingernails either, they chip off whether done at home or a salon, so I just shape them whenever I think of it (which is usually once a month or when one gets a hangnail) and leave them at that.
I do a bit of both. If I don't have the time to go to a nail salon, I paint them myself. With my finger nails, I do them myself. The polish starts to chip off after a couple of days anyway.
Yes, but they never turn out the way it is done in the salon!
I've never been to a salon, but I rarely paint my own nails because they get chipped so quickly and it starts to look tacky.
If you talk about preference, getting it done at a nail salon is so much better, but for reasons other than preference, like cost, practicality, efficiency, I mostly paint my nails myself at home.
I had a pedicure done for my wedding. I thought I would hate it (having people near my feet makes me nervous), but it was so relaxing and I completely understand people who make this a ritual. Despite how good it was, I would rather spend the money on something else, so yes. When I get the change, I pain my own nails. I would paint my fingernails (if there were fingernails to paint - gosh I must stop biting) but waiting for the varnish to dry can be painful, and there is always the risk of thinking it has dried when it hasn't.
