It's been about a month since the last time I had my nails done. I have acrylics and a month between visits means a lot of growth-- a LOT of growth.
Ordinarily, this wouldn't matter because by the time nails grow out this much, most of the acrylics are popping off anyway. Not so in my case. The guy I go to does a really great job and there is absolutely no lift at all with these tips. They are, all ten of them, firmly planted on top of my natural nails. And that's the problem. I can't afford to get my nails done anymore, not with repaying two student loans concurrently. They're too long. They are getting in the way and making typing cumbersome. I just want them off. I could, I suppose, poke and prod and try to chip them off, but that hurts. Does anyone know how to relatively painlessly (and cheaply) remove acrylic nails?
Also, I realize that I really need to moisturize my hands more. They look bad.
[Update]: The pinky nails have popped off! I'm 20% there!
