Acrylic nails are a type of artificial nail that is applied over your natural nails to extend their length and shape.

Do acrylic nails damage your natural nails?

Improper application, removal, or maintenance can damage your natural nails. This includes:

  • Overfilling, leading to thinning of the nail bed.
  • Harsh removal techniques, causing lifting and breakage.
  • Not allowing nails to breathe between extensions.
  • Using low-quality products or neglecting hygiene.

Always choose a qualified nail technician and follow proper care guidelines to minimize risks.

How long do acrylic nails last?

With proper care, acrylic nails can last 3-4 weeks. However, they require regular fills (every 2-3 weeks) to maintain their shape as your natural nails grow.

Are acrylic nails fake or real?

Acrylic nails are artificial enhancements applied over your natural nails. They are not “real” in the sense that they are not your natural nail tissue. However, they can be made to look very natural depending on the skill of the technician and the desired style.
