Having acrylic nails can be difficult unless you know how to take care of them. There are ways to care for them so that they last long and remain polished. They are beautiful artificial nails and can look great with unique designs on them. Make these nails last longer with the following tips and tricks.
1. Avoid Pressure
Be very careful with acrylic nails and make sure that you do not apply too much pressure to them because they can break off very easily when there are long extensions applied
2. Cuticle Cream
Using cuticle cream or oil every night is going to help you before you go to sleep. After you shower and have done what you need to do, apply the oil so that you can keep your nails soft and moist. This is going to prevent dry skin from building up around your nails as well.
