Century Nails - Nail salon 34609 - Spring Hill FL: Sometimes you just want to have some fun with your nails. You want to step away from the expectations of beauty and glamour and have something cute to show for your work. Here are some cute nail art ideas that are a must.
Artificial nails can lengthen short nails, making your fingers look long and slender. They can also be hard on your nails.
To get acrylic nails (a type of artificial nail) to stick, the surface of your natural nails must be filed until they feel rough. This thins your natural nails, making them weaker. Chemicals in the products used to apply artificial nails can irritate the skin around your nails and elsewhere.
The list of health risks doesn’t end here. To remove artificial nails, you often need to soak in acetone or file them off. If you want to wear artificial nails for more than a few weeks, you’ll need touch-ups every 2 to 3 weeks to fill in the gaps that appear as your nails grow. Frequent touch-ups can seriously damage your natural nails.
In short, artificial nails can leave your nails thin, brittle, and parched.
Still, some people love the look of artificial nails. If you’re one of them, these tips from dermatologists can help you reduce the damage:
Choose soak-off gel nails instead of acrylic nails. Gel nails are a little easier on your nails because they’re more flexible. This means your own nails are less likely to crack.
