I think acrylic nails are trashy.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I just had to say it! I think they look really bad!



Edit -So, if you think your nails looks so good with acrylic... then post a pic and let cafe mom be the judge!

I don't know who glues tips on anymore. You're misinformed. Acrylic nails have no tips glued on. The acrylic is brushed on and then dries. Maybe those cheap Chinese nail places.

No, gel & acrylic aren't the same.

Acrylic they file the nail bed down, glue on a tip, add acrylic then file again.

I think it's like $20 for that where gels are higher & not as damaging.



Quoting mommyrustina:

I am wondering if I am thinking of the right thing because I am not understanding a lot of the comments. I have gel nails and nothing has ever been glued on my nails. It is just the gel compound that is brushed on then hardens. Then I just get a French manicure. My nails go just slightly beyond the tips of my fingers. So no glue, no real length, no crazy patterns.

I love my nails and getting them done and I get many compliments.




They stay very short and cute french tip.









Sometimes, I mean all the time, you women are so judgemental. Do you have NOTHING better to do then decide what YOU think is trashy??? #getalife

 I personally would never get them - I had them once years ago and it took a long time for my real nails to come back from the damage they caused - plus, they're such a huge waste of money to get and maintain.  And you can tell when someone has fakes on because they're so thick.

thats the worst part, that toxic thick acrylic. You act like tips are the worst part of the nails. Its the acrylic thats worse.

I have some right now just for Christmas because normally my nails are extremely short (stress biter!) They don't look bad, I also make sure to keep them clipped short enough. Super long nails are gross!

I think gel nails without the polish look absolutely beautiful. My mother-in-law got these done when her nails were splitting straight through due to liver failure. I think anything looks better than her cracked bleeding nails. I actually can't have long nails due to my work so I just keep them nicely trimmed without polish.

I don't think so. I think the super long, can't do the dishes with these nails acrylics are though.

I was just pointing out that you were wrong. That is all. And what is bad about the acrylic? If the acrylic is too thick then the nail tech sucks. Acrylic isn't supposed to be thick.
