FML - The follow-up
Mojo0608 Say more :
So I've never really been one for fake nails and I used to play the violin so I kept them as short as possible which is a habit I've kept. They aren't that long really (nowhere near claw length), so when my mum asked I thought it wouldn't be a problem. Um, yeah... No... I'm still on the toilet... Well not really, but I'm going to try getting these off as soon as I can, they're just weird to me. I think my mother will "nail" the exam, thanks for the puns and sympathy! :)

If it's for an exam she's supposed to be able to do it to a real person too. I've only worn false nails once, never again, I felt like they could snap off at any point, I feel your pain op.

Me too, 54. My nails don't grow and if they do, I'm a notorious biter. I could never do some of the ridiculous lengths I've seen.. I always kept them at a more "natural" length. Sadly I can't afford them anymore as it's a rather expensive habit.

the longest I do my nails are like an inch but I'm talking about the whole nail, from the cuticle down to the tip of my acrylics. For some they're long, to me they're fine but I have small hands with short, stubby fingers so at least they make them look slender lol and since I do them myself with my own designs I get tons if compliments x)

There's an extent to when long nails look attractive. After a few inches it just looks awkward to do everyday tasks. But hey, it's their nails, who am I to judge?

Having acrylic nails is a vicious cycle. You get the nails, they look pretty, but they start to wear and maybe break off. Continued wear seriously damages the original nail, making it thin and flimsy, causing what? Oh grrrrl, I gotta get my nails done, AGAIN. Nope, I keep mine natural now.

44- Or, you could be needlessly sensitive here, and wrongfully take any criticisms personally and as offensive when in reality no insults were made to you or anyone else, for that matter.

44 - No one who handles good should wear fake nails, that just gives me the shivers, thinking about biting into my food and chomping an acrylic, ew.

This comment is so overused that it isn't witty or funny anymore. I usually just thumb comments like this down and move on, but I REALLY want to convey the fact that these types of comments are basically eyesores.

Nail clippers will get the tips, but to get the rest off you can pull, cut, tug, and make it hurt like hell, or you can soak in acetone which dissolves the acrylic. Unless they are gel nails, then you pretty much have to file them off.

#78, if you are referring to the acetone solution, it doesn't really damage the skin if you do it right. Hold it in for about a minute, pull out and wipe off what has dissolved, then keep doing it until the nail is off. And it will make the skin look terribly dry, but a little lotion will fix it immediately. There is no long term damage.
