Missing My Nails :(

Sooo, took off my acrylics 3 days ago and I feel like I have little boy hands!!! My nails are so paper thin uggh!!! So my nail lady removed them with another acrylic nail and used it to wedge between my own nail and the tip..and can I say pure pain?!! I wish I would've taken notice of the polish that I had on at the time. As you will see in the pic they were a really pretty red. I'm usually more of a neutral tone kinda girl but i was tryning to be festive soooo. The end result was dreadful and I'm upset I didn't take a pic of how they looked exactly after they were off cuz they were raw looking!!! And one was even cracked, but I couldn't be upset cuz I did it to myself!!! So after the painful removal I came home and buffed them myself then painted with a cool color from Sally Hansen called Wet Cement, and the name says it all!! Check the pictures...



Like I said wish I knew the name of this color but I didn't take notice but it was an OPI nail polish.



Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Cement



Lemme know your opinions on acrylics vs. natural, and maybe some suggestions for how I can strengthen my nails!!! How do you feel about the wet cement color??  Thanx 4 stopping by!

Be Good!
Besos!

I've never had acrylic nails, so I can't really judge on that. I dooo like the way they look though. To keep my nails strong, I apply a Nutra Nail strengthener on my bare nail, then apply normal nail polish after. My nails still peel sometimes though :( I think it's from washing dishes at home so much! I have gloves for that now, so maybe my nails will finally get stronger. Hehe :) OH, I love the Wet Cement color! It kind of has an understated look :p

Apparently grey nails are what's hot right now. I'm seeing them popping up left and right!

Ive always been a fan of the heather gray nail and have been looking for a good color looking forward to trying out wet cement! Also, for keeping your nails strong try Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure IMO its better than OPI.
