Can Acrylic Nails Harm Your Nails

Updated on August 29, 2013


Acrylic nails saloons are a growing business across the world. These acrylic nails are call fake, nails extension they enhance the beauty of one hands..

Acrylic name are so close to real nails, at times it's hard to tell; without a closer look. Younger women and older women are going to nail saloons for manicures and acrylics nails. Can acrylic nails damage real nails? Wearing acrylic nails that is poorly done; without clean tools can damage nails.

Researcher have stated that acrylic nails are not likely to harm natural nails but can cause infections . The growth of my nails are superb, every three weeks they have to be clipped. My first trip to a nail saloon was amazing, with me looking threw all the beautiful designs. I wanted a full-set of nails. you have beautiful strong healthy looking nails, why you want acrylic the technician asked?

After she finish they was beautiful and I was proud. It took 2 weeks for my first nail to come off, each week I was going back for replacement, I was spending more money for the replacement then I did the full set of nails. Before I went to the saloon I never had a problem with my nails splitting, or cracking, the chemicals they used made my nails weak and thin. After the acrylics nails was taken off it took months for my nails to grow beautiful healthy and strong. I do-have to omit that acrylic nails are beautiful exciting and glamorous but they are not for everyone.

      I learned something here! I tried them once, but they didn't stay on very well, and I have not tried them since. Now I am glad!

      Acrylics Nails are beautiful but are they safe to wear a long period of time. I once wore acrylic nails, even though my own nails are beautiful and long. After 3 months of wearing fake nails my real nails became weak and cracked a lot. It took a year for my own nails to recover from all the chemicals.
