Acrylic nails can look amazing. However, the thought has crossed my mind about whether sticking something like this to your nails could damage your natural nail. Can acrylic nails damage your natural nail?
They can, and because they are not natural to use on your nails, damage occurs at some stage.It's a given. Chemicals used, will only in time ruin the natural nail under the acrylic one.I have seen some very sad nails.
Yes they can make natural nails thin and flaky, especially if you've had them a long time. But natural nails will never look like acrylic ones so I guess you've got to make a choice between ok natural nails and amazing acrylic ones. It takes about 4 to 6 months to grow out a nail completely so could take that long to get natural ones looking good again.
Yes they do. I had my nails done for my wedding due to a seemingly unbreakable nail-biting habit, and my nails went from bad to worse. They did grow though, I suppose that was the only plus, but never again.
I've heard yes, but I don't actually know for a fact. I know that keeping nail polish on all the time softens the nail, so I guess the glue is the same. Probably not the best idea... for a regular thing...
It is about ten years since I gave up the acrylic nails. Now my natural nails are permanently short because they are damaged and I can't grown them past a certain length.
I like the look of acrylics but I got tired of sitting in a very smelly room surrounded by people wearing masks. It just lost it's appeal.
I have very good strong nails and all my life have rarely put nail polish on them, also use scissors to cut and shape them, do not use a nail file, yes they are long just buff them to look nice and shiney.
