My nails were so weak and unhealthy from years of continuous acrylics, then I discovered builder gel at Privé and it’s completely transformed them! Another reason I always return is because all of the girls in the salon are so lovely and Keri always does such an amazing job on my nails!

My visit to Preve’ salon was an absolute pleasure. I was lucky enough to have Lauren do my nails. I had my gels removed and replaced. Lauren showed absolute care and attention to every step she taken. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend Lauren to anyone. If you are fortunate enough to get an appointment at preve’ salon you will not go wrong by choosing Lauren. Five star job five star person.

Acrylic Nails FAQs

It’s unlikely. You can still wash, swim, and shower when you’re wearing acrylic nails, but prolonged exposure to water could cause them to lift.

Acrylic nails should last between 6-8 weeks and will need a fill every 2-3 weeks to cover regrowth. Shellac and gel nails last for 2-3 weeks.

It’s really down to personal preference. Gels give a more natural, glossier finish than acrylics, but acrylics tend to be stronger. Gel nails cure under a UV lamp; acrylics start curing as soon as they’re exposed to air. They can both be used to lengthen nails. Gels last for 2 weeks and should then be removed; Acrylic nails last 6-8 weeks, but will need fills after 2-3 weeks to hide regrowth. Both can damage your natural nails, so it’s always best to seek out an experienced nail technician who can do the application, filling and removal for you.

Acrylic nails may contract and tighten after application and this can cause discomfort; however it shouldn’t last longer than 24hrs. If you’re experiencing pain after that, it could be a sign of damage or infection, particularly if your nails were filed down too low or your cuticles were pushed back too far pre-application. To avoid infection, damage and discomfort, we always recommend having your acrylic nails applied, filled, and removed by an experienced nail technician.

We always recommend asking a professional nail technician to remove your acrylic nails for you, but if you are planning on removing them yourself, follow these steps to minimise damage to your natural nails

  1. File off as much of the acrylic nail as you can using a coarse 100-grit nail file. Take care not to go down to your natural nail, though.

  2. Soak 10 cotton wool balls in 100% acetone, then apply 5 of them to your nails, securing them in position by wrapping a strip of foil around each fingertip. Leave them on for 20 minutes, then remove, and repeat on your other hand.

TIP: Avoid soaking your fingertips in a bowl of acetone - it’s a strong chemical and will dry your skin.

  1. Take a wooden cuticle stick and gently push the acrylic and glue off your nail. Buff any remnants away with a soft foam nail buffer and moisturise your nails with a natural oil, like jojoba.

They don’t. Human nails grow at around 3mm (1/8”) every month whether you wear artificial nails or not. Acrylic nails don’t make your natural nails grow faster, but because of their length, they can give the impression that your own nails have grown more quickly.

Acrylic nails can damage your natural nails, so it’s always best to minimise any damage by seeking out an experienced nail technician to apply, fill, and remove them for you.
