Acrylics do get a bad rap, but really, they aren’t any worse for your nails than other artificial nail products. However, they aren’t completely without side effects—which worsen if you don’t take the right steps to take care of them. The removal process can weaken your nails’ natural state, but when done properly it won’t cause any permanent damage, which is why it’s very important to have a professional remove them. Aside from safe removal, one of the best things you can do for your natural nails is to take occasional breathing space between appointments. It’s recommended to take a break from getting acrylics around every three to six months to help rejuvenate your nails.
Acrylics should last six to eight weeks with a fill needed about every two to three weeks, depending on your nail growth. Not only does getting a fill—a.k.a. a touchup between the bottom of the nail and the cuticle—improve the appearance of the manicure, but it also helps it last longer. Fills are very important because once your nails start to grow is when lifting begins to happen.
Contrary to popular belief, you can still use your hands when you have acrylics, we recommend wearing gloves while doing things like cleaning. Also, use moisturizer and cuticle oil to keep your hands and nails healthy. As with any treatment, do your research on the salon—the right care and attention to detail can help extend the life of your manicure in the long run. Beyond that, the biggest enemies to acrylics are wearing them beyond their lifespan and not keeping up with fills.
