The Truth About Acrylic Nails

A few months ago, around the beginning of October, I decided I wanted to have acrylic nails. The reason behind my decision was that I ready so many posts saying how bad nail polish is for you; the scent is harmful for your lungs, and the additional ingredients soak into your body through your nails, which again, on a long term, can be very terrible. Plus, it dries out your cuticles and the skin around your nails, which I had always suffered from, no matter how much handcream I had used the night before to add some moisture. My nails also started chipping a few years ago from the use of the tons of polish and removers. I started painting my nails at quite a young age and I even learned many techniques and nail art designs, therefore it became a hobby of mine and I loved painting my fingertips with different colors, using different patterns every week. However, I soon realised that the harm it causes is just as big as my love for nail polish. My nails could never grow out fully, they always broke, thats how thin they became, so I asked my mum what her opinion is about her acrylic nails, since she had them for a very long time.

I then went to her manicurist whom she trusts very much and does really pretty nails, and asked for a simple pink coffin shaped nails. At first it was wierd my nails where thicker and longer than usual, but I quickly got used to loving it.


I have been really enjoying the longer nails that don’t chip off. The shine stays on forever, and I don’t have to paint over it after a few days, and most importantly, the color stays on as long as I want it to. I am glad I don’t have to waste any more time breathing in that smell that I had gotten used to over the past few years, and worrying that the polish had already come off in addition it would make my hands look distasteful and not cared about.

A lot of people are concerned that their nails will be ruined after wearing acrylics for a long time. Obviously don’t wear them for 10 years without letting them air, and NEVER try to take them off yourself! That is the reason why your nails get ruined from it. Don’t even try to think of ripping them off, because a part of your nail can come off with it, making the healing process much longer and painful. I also heard people soaking their acrylic in 100% acetone which will not only ruin your nails completely, but also your skin, making the first few layers of skin shed for days and weaken your nails so much you won’t even believe that those are your own hands. Let your manicurist buff it off and apply any creams and oils to repair them.

I personally love my nails ever since I have them done professionally. They look much healthier, plus the shine makes them look much more elegant and sleek. No chipping, no breaking offs and no weak nails. I recommend you gel nails for an occasion or for a one-time wear, but for a longer period, go with acrylics, because gel lacquer weakens them from all the buffing and soaking.
