NOT THAT KIND! I think I'd like to get some acrylic nails. I have nails. I can grow them out. But there is all of the maintenance and upkeep. If you polish, you have to take it off and do it again. When I was younger, even when my two children were babies, I had beautiful fingernails. I would do my nails in the evening after I had put them to bed. And in those days, I was a stay-at-home mom and my house was immaculate- so I was doing a lot with my hands, but still managed to have nice nails.I've only had acrylics once. That was four years ago and I had them from February until May. Then they started driving me crazy. I let them grow out in the end and bought the harsh remover stuff and took them off myself at home. It took a year for my nails to recover. I swore I would never do it again. But for some reason, I'm jonsin' for them. My gal-pal Jennifer says no. She said "if you do it it will destroy your nail bed." Sigh. That is probably true. My mother had fake nails for years and then got a horrible infection. Apparently, the shop she was going to wasn't certified and she got some kind of a germ. She is known for being dramatic but she said the infection was so bad that her arms almost fell off.
What do you think? Should I?
