comment...if nail glue is tested on a material it may burn, then it makes you wonder if its bad for your nails. my opinion is that it is , but im no expert.

Not really, to keep them from being all icky when yu take it off, just put a couple (1-2) coats of clear nail polish on before putting on the glue onto your nails.

hope that helps :)

No,I heard that you are not supposed to be wearing them when you are preg, for some odd reason but they are fine to wear otherwise. I had fake nails when I was twelve and everything was fine. So go right ahead! YES,

The last paragraph is false here are some reasons why they are bad for you.

1.When you remove them you remove a layer of your natural nail off, which often leaves them weak or brittle.

2.They can grow bacteria which can make you sick.

3.If you get them done at a salon, the tools might be dirty and could give you Hepatitis, a really bad sickness.

4.The solvents in the Glue are bad for your Nails.

So if I were you I would not put on fake nails on all the time, just for special occasions like 1-3 times a year would be fine if you love having pretty and cute nails. Otherwise don't wear them. Like I said before wear them 1-3 times a year because they can damage you nails and nails need to breath so they can grow. But they can harm you if you wear them like nearly every month just wearing them on really special occasions would be perfectly fine.

I hope you found this useful. ;~)

this is my first time wearing them and im going to be wearing them for 2 days is it still bad to do or wat i need to now before i go get them done???

They are in a sense because you have to file down the nail, and that can damage the exterior of your nail, making it weaker and more frail. I've also heard that "the acrylic eats at your nails" but I don't know if that's true or not. I highly doubt it though.

Not at all. This is a myth. If your nails are done properly in a salon by a qualified nail technician, there will be no problems if you come back every 2-3 weeks for "fills". And with proper removal from the qualified nail tech, your nails will be in the same if not better condition than they were before.

Answer 1

Yes they are. The glue used can damage the natural nail and there is also a fungus that can form under the fake nails causing damage to the natural nail.

Answer 2

No. If done properly in a salon by a qualified nail technician they are completely safe. Be sure to keep up with "fills" whether its acrylic or gel. Usually 2 weeks from initial application should you be scheduled for a fill. If the client (you) takes care of the enhancements (no picking, biting, using them as tools etc) they will last however long you decide to keep them on. With proper removal of the nails by a qualified nail tech, your natural nails will be in the same condition if not better than they were before initial application.

Indeed acrylics and glue on nails damage and weaken your natural nail, but the decision of whether or not to get them is yours. It doesn't ruin your nail but it doesn't help it either.

No! Fake nails are the worst things you could do! In fact your nail can come off from fake nails. However its ok to have them on every once in a while.

Absolutely Not. The glue used in fake nail will damage your natural nails making it weaker over time and more difficult for you natural nails to grow. Use a strengthening nail polish instead.
