Mojo0608 tells us 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! :)

Damn. I never understood why women got those kind of nails on purpose anyway.
Maybe they get them because they like them and don't give a crap about your opinion? I used to get acrylics when I worked in a sandwich shop because I washed my hands and handled sanitizer so often my nails were starting to peel and turn yellow. They were so short you probably wouldn't have even been able to tell they were acrylics. So, everyone has there own reasons.
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)
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.
#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.
