Coral shades are one of my favorites when it comes to nail polishes! So soft, very feminine and it goes with every outfit. Yes I do like to match my nail colors with clothes haha. Only this time I’m not wearing nail polish… it’s acrylic. Yep it all fake! I don’t usually have acrylic manicure but this time I was so tired of my own nails and the fact that nail polishes don’t stay on for that long that I decided to go for acrylic manicure. At least this stays good for about 3 weeks and it won’t start chipping or lose its sheen!

However this might sound amazing, there are disadvantages to acrylic manicure that can be hard to avoid when going for it. After removal, nails can become thin and this could take months before a new nail plate grows in. The risk of damaging your nails is hard to avoid but it can be minimized if the nail technician knows how to remove them gently. There are several ways to treat your nails after you’ve done the manicure which is very important because the nails has come in contact with chemicals. For example cuticles should be oiled and no nail polishes should be used for atleast a week. I don’t know if I will go for a refill but I do believe that there are advantages and disadvantages to almost everything and if you do it with moderation, you’re good to go.

What’s your experience with acrylic manicure?

    They look so good and actually one would think they are your real nails. I've never tried any sort of fake nails… well except for the glue ones that last like 3 hours lol) but yeah my nails have pretty much always been in good shape and very healthy so I've always felt no need for fake ones. And actually a couple of times my real ones have been mistaken for fake ones haha.

      People actually think they're my own nails but that is what I want it to be. I really don't like it if you can actually see that they're fake, even though they are. If they're in good shape DONT do acrylic! :p

    Yours look good actually. I've never tried it but I've heard pros and cons about acrylic nails. I'm still quite skeptical to try it =)
