Emmy’s Nails Cares About You. If you have your hands in water often, we do not recommend acrylic nails as trapped moisture between the nail bed and acrylic can cause fungus and/or nail damage. If you are experiencing ANY lifting of the acrylic or other damage, we recommend immediate repair. Also, some people may be sensitive to the solutions in acrylic which may result in temporary damage to the natural nail or a “thinning” of nails. Some people may also be sensitive to the fumes as well. All this information is well documented on the Internet and we advise you to be informed.
Unless you’re seeking instant length, gel polish is a much better alternative for many people.
