This is a question for the ladies on the forum. I currently have solar/acrylic nails and was wondering if these are common in CR. I know it may depend on where I will be living but just in general what do the CR women like to do to their nails if anything?

 

Guys if you are in the know please feel free to comment :)

Agree with CRF - I often feel like a neanderthal compared to my Costa Rican lady friends who have their fingernails and toenails done and look beautiful. (If not always practical.) Acrylic nails as well as nail painting widely available here.

You will see Ticas with impeccably manicured fingernails/toenails everywhere you go! I don't get mine done so also cannot comment on specific types, but I don't think you'll have issue continuing to get your nails done at a salon.

They even have their nails done in holiday themes. tiny, tiny paintings on their nails. I am in awe, although it would never work on my nails, I am too much of a tomboy.

Neanderthal, haha, I'm with Eleanor ... I'll go out thinking I look pretty decent, until I realize that next to the artwork on the ticas' manicured toes and fingers, my home "manicured" toes look like a blindfolded third-grader took a bottle of acrylic paint to my feet. And my hands ... please, why even paint them when they're just going to chip the same day, mopping the floor? I guess I'm perpetuating the "sloppy gring@" stereotype ... *sigh*.
