Acrylic nails are the perfect option to extend your nails' length, giving you that glam look without having to wait for your natural nail to grow. They're hard-wearing, glossy, and kind of fabulous. You might like to get them for a special occasion, or they might be part of your everyday look.
You nails might be a little thin after you remove an acrylic set, but if you add a nail hardener and let them grow out a little they'll grow back to their normal selves. Adding a cuticle moisturiser is a great option also.
Keep them as dry as possible, book in for infills every two to three weeks. Always get them removed by a professional.
Any type of nail enhancement can cause damage to your natural nail. It's important to keep up with upkeep and allow time in between sets so your nails have time to recover.
If you're going for a full set of acrylics you'll need a new set roughly every six to eight weeks. However, you will need to get infills in between the new sets every two to three weeks.
The beauty of acrylic nails is that you don't need to get a new set every time you visit the salon. Rather, you'll be heading in every two to four weeks for an infill. An infill is just an acrylic solution added to the base where the nail has grown out. Your technician will be a wiz, and it will look like a new set every time you opt for your infill.
