They are clean and smooth-ish, but I don't really spend much time on them.

I take care to look after my nails, but I won't get them professionally done. I can do just as good a job for free!
They are always filed - I'm anal about rough nail edges. I won't leave them alone until they are filed smooth.
It also pisses me off when one or two nails are a lot shorter than the rest if the nail split or tore off for whatever reason.

I clip them and keep them free of dirt, that's all.

I keep them clean and if one happens to break I even the edges out.
Very rarely do I treat myself to an at-hope pedicure or manicure, mostly due to a lack of room/time in which it could be done.

I don't really pay attention to mine. I paint them about 3 times a year and hardly ever remove the chipped polish with nail remover. I just let the paint fade away naturally by doing my every day activities.

My husband is a fantaic over clean-manicured nails. He clips his constantly.

I dont like fake nails because to me it's a bitch having them removed and I only do them for special occasions. Normally mine are bare and well kept but if food or somethin stains them I cut then or if one breaks. My nails naturally grow rounded at the tip for the most part and a few times I've gotten fake nails the person commented on how nice my real nails are. I like to paint them myself and it saves me 30$ or more a month!

I don't care what mine look like. I just cut them or bite them, so no one gets scratched by me.

Trim and filed. Occasional polish. But I work with my hands too much to do professional upkeep.

I used to get my nails done professionally every week, but I developed an allergy to the acrylic. Now I just do a manicure myself about once a week if I can find the time.

I try to keep them clean and trimmed and painted. I have a lot of nail polish so I try to paint my nails once a week or so. I won't be running out anytime soon, lol. It lets me get creative and save a bunch of money not having them professionally done all the time.

I'm fortunate to have inherited nice nails from my grandmother. I like mine to be a medium length, and I keep them filed, clean and in good shape, and paint them occasionally. I've gotten professional manis and pedis, but I think they look a lot better when I do them at home.

As a guy no paint - I keep them very short because it's so much easier to keep them clean and short is a must for anal play.

I've been biting my nails for so long that they don't grow long without splitting.

I don't spend much time on them. I just let them grow until they're long enough to get in the way and start breaking on me, then I file them down and repeat the process. I love having them painted, but I tend to get lazy.

I used to get gel nails done, but now that I'm in school I can't afford it. I bite my nails, so they're really short. I don't bother painting them, since they don't look nice anyways.

I keep my nails pretty short, and I always make sure they're smooth after filing.

I really keep them in good shape; close, clean, and smooth!

I will occasionally go out and get them done, but only for very special occasions like a wedding or a family gathering. I always regret it, too.

I keep them smooth, clean, and generally painted. I've been on a nail polish kick these past few months - I've gotten like 16 bottles in 5 months. I'm not allowed to buy any more polish (for myself), sadly... But we'll see how that actually works out, lol.

I paint my nails at home and keep them decent-looking, but I've only ever been to a salon for a manicure once in my life
