I had fun keeping up acrylic nails for several months after my wedding. (See the different colors here, here, here, and here.) I loved the length and the millions of color combinations to choose from. But when I asked the salon to remove them, this is what I was left with...
...not a great look. And what's worse is my natural nails started breaking because the sanding process has thinned them so much.
After I took these photos I invested in some nail strengthener polish and it has taken some patience to grow back my natural, strong nails. I am going to try to use the strengthener to legthen my natural nails in a much healthier way- and then paint those babies bright colors! Acrylics were fun, but not worth the havoc they wreak on my natural nails, I've decided. Live and learn!
