  • well,time to let some time go between nail sessions. You probably contacted a fungal infection. You'll have to clear that up before you even think about getting nails again.

  • im not exactly sure what you mean but it sounds like your nail tore? or the acrylic lifted from your nail or it lifted YOUR nail from the bed? sorry i dont toatlly understand but if its either of those three things you could get some nail glue from walmart or any place like that to glue on fake nails and glue your or the fake nail back down and keep a handaid around it until it grows out. hope that helps some! thats what i used to do ffor my acrlyic nails when they would break off

  • If they were removed properly that never would have happened. You are supposed to soak them in acetone for a very long time. They soften, turn into jelly, and are ground off.

    You are at very high risk for a serious infection right now. I would keep it covered, and wrapped. With neosporin as well. If it doesn't hurt any less by tomorrow, I'd go get that checked.

    I used to do nails professionally and I've seen some nasty things happen to nails.

  • OH btw, super glue or nail a few days after it's dried out, and a little less painful, without signs of infection, you can mend the nail with nail glue or crazy glue.

  • numb it with ice and then take a deep breath and cut it off. Wash it well with soap and water then keep it covered only when you have to. use antibiotic cream daily.
