Sure; you can attempt to paint your own nails, but they probably won't look nearly as polished as if you'd left the job to a professional technician -- especially if you choose to wear acrylic nails. There's no need to take the chance of polish chipping the day of your wedding, much less having a nail pop off in the middle of your nuptials! A nail technician completes approximately 600 hours of supervised practice painting and sculpting nails, and they have significant experience handling common ailments like hangnails and ingrown toenails. So sit back, relax and enjoy being pampered before the big day at a nearby nail salon -- especially during the massage portions of each treatment!
