    Wearing fake nails for too long at the time CAN cause damage to your own nails.Your own nails must have air or they will turn yellow,can develop infection, and may even cause loss of the nails.Nail polish will also cause this.Good alternative-take a calcium pill every day (be sure to check with your Dr. before taking ANY kind of medicines!) and grow your own!

    Putting on the actual fake nails, yes it ruins your nails. The glue and the acrylics that are put on your nails tear off quite a few layers of your nail, and many people bleed when they are removed. However, an alternative would be to get just a manicure, they will fix your cuticles and such and paint your nails and they do it very well, it feels very good, and does no damage to your nails.

    I think so b/c my sister says the glue eats ur original nail, I think after u try 2 pull them off that it rips ur nail off with the fake nail.

    One thing for sure is that your nails won't be able to breathe, with that fake nail over the glue. Imagine that pressure!

  • It can leave you with dry cuticles AND can leave small white scars on your fingernails, but these with grow out with your fingernails - so don't worry! You wouldn't have the mark for life! Apart from it also possibly reducing the thickness of your nails, that is pretty much all to worry about.

    I hate fake nails...they look so...fake

    Manicures are the way to go.

    And yes they do damage your nails. They become weak and brittle after you take them off.

    Not really worth it

    It is very hard on your nails. It makes them weak and brittle and also getting them done often makes your likelyhood of getting some sort of nail problem (infection, fungus) from unproperly cleaned manicure tools much higher!

    yes, you can get a horrid fungus of the nail that will ruin your nails forever, fake nails are totally without purpose, they are truly ugly, they dont look natural so what is the point.

    Everyone I know that has worn them said their real nails get really weak and break easy.

    getting acrylic or fake nails usually makes them weak and they tend to thin out after you have had them on for a while, sometimes the glue can turn color like my friend had experianced (it turned yellow-ish in color)
