Acrylic nails may be a great option for adding some color and class to your look, but they come with their fair share of challenges as well. Most of which revolve around the fact that these artificial nails are not made for constant wear. Nails that are worn every single day tend to accumulate layers of moisture, leaving them susceptible to becoming brittle and splitting apart after repeated use. The primary culprits in causing this include the acrylic itself and the nail equipment you’re using. The end product of acrylic is known to be more fragile than other types of nail extensions specifically because it does not contain any natural oils. This means that it is prone to developing micro-cracks over time from even the slightest amount of stress or friction. If you’ve ever noticed how your acrylic nails start to chip off at the tips after hitting something by accident, you’ll know exactly what we mean.
Why Does My Acrylic Nail Hurt After Hitting It?
From time to time, acrylic nails can cause pain when hit. Acrylic nails are a type of nail that is made with a polymer instead of a natural nail. These nails are more durable and last longer than other types of nails. They also tend to be less susceptible to chipping and breaking. Unfortunately, acrylic nails can sometimes cause pain when hit. This is because the nail material is bumpy and has ridges. These bumps can dig into the skin when the nail is hit.
What Is The Reason Your Acrylic Nail Hurts Them?
- Your acrylic nail is too thick. If your acrylic nail is too thick, then the acrylic material will stick to the nail bed and cause pain when you hit something. If your acrylic nail is too thick, then you need to trim off the extra material from the bottom of the nail.
- Your acrylic nails are not worn enough. The reason why your acrylic nails hurt when hit is because they are not worn enough. If you don’t wear your artificial nails every day, then your artificial nails will be very brittle and prone to chipping and breaking. So for that reason, it’s important for you to wear them every day or at least several times a week so that they become less brittle and more durable over time.
- Your acrylic nails are not properly cleaned and maintained properly after each application of polish. Acrylic nails can break if they are not maintained properly after each application of polish because they have moisture in them that can cause them to become brittle over time. Proper cleaning should always be done before applying any type of color or polish onto your artificial fingernails or toenails so that no oils or debris gets into the pores of the nail itself which can cause pain when it is hit against something like a door knob or table edge etc..
- There may be debris in your artificial fingernails/toenails from previous manicures/pedicures etc.. The reason why there may be debris in your artificial fingernails/toenails is because manicures and pedicures are often done at salons or nail shops. So often, they will use an acetone based polish instead of a regular polish. This is because acetone based polishes dry very quickly and don’t require as much time to dry as regular polishes do. This means that the manicurist may forget to wash out their tools between each service and therefore may be using it on your nails for the next customer. Because of this, you may have a new client’s nail debris in your artificial nails which can cause them to become brittle and break over time if they are not properly maintained.
- Your acrylic nails are too hard or too soft. The reason why acrylic nails can hurt when hit is because they are either too hard or too soft depending on the type of acrylic material that was used when they were made into the artificial fingernails/toenails in question. Acrylic nails should be soft but not too soft so that they don’t break easily when hit against something like a table edge etc.. If your acrylic nail is too soft, then you need to increase the amount of wear and tear on it by wearing them more frequently so that it becomes more durable over time
What Are The Tips For Storing And Protecting Your Acrylics?
- Acrylic nails are very delicate and they can break very easily if they are not properly stored and protected. It is important to properly store and protect your acrylic nails after each time you remove them from the nail bed so that they don’t dry out or become brittle over time. This means that you need to keep your nails in an airtight container or bag with a desiccant inside of it so that any moisture in the air does not get into the pores of the nail itself which can cause them to become brittle over time.
- It is important to use gloves when removing your acrylics from the nail bed so that you do not damage them by touching them with your bare hands. Acrylic nails are very delicate and fragile and therefore should always be handled as little as possible for maximum durability over time.
- If you ever wish to remove your acrylics, then it is best to use a cotton swab with acetone on it instead of using cotton buds (which can also cause damage) because acetone evaporates much faster than regular polishes do which means that it will dry much faster than regular polishes do, especially if they contain alcohol in them which will evaporate quickly, therefore making it easy for you to clean off any debris from previous manicures etc..
- Your acrylic nails should be washed off with warm water after every manicure/pedicure etc.. It is also important to use soap when washing off your artificial fingernails/toenails and to always use the same brand of soap for your acrylics because different brands of soap can contain different ingredients which can make your acrylic nails or fingernails/toenails smell differently in the long run.
- It is important to apply a base coat when you polish your acrylic nails because it will help to protect them from any damage that is caused by chemicals and other substances that may be used on them during a manicure/pedicure etc.
What Can Cause Pain When Hit With An acrylic?
- If you push down on the acrylic nail it may cause pain.
- If you file or grind the acrylic nail it may cause pain.
- If the acrylic has a very sharp edge it may cause pain if it is hit, especially if you are wearing gloves to avoid touching your hands with your bare hands.
- If your acrylic is very thin and flexible then it may bend when hit and cause pain because of how flexible and fragile they are.
- If you have an acrylic that is too thick then it will not bend when hit and therefore not hurt at all even if it does get hit because there will be no way for the blow to break through the layers of hard acrylic that make up the nail itself which would otherwise have made contact with your skin causing pain etc..
- If your nail polish has been chipped off of an old acrylic nail (or any artificial fingernail/toenail) then this can also cause pain if you get hit because they are so brittle that they tend to break easily when they get hit, especially if they have been chipped before and have gotten weaker over time..
- Acrylic nails can break easily in other areas such as at the base of them (where there is a joint), at their edges, or in their grooves (especially if they are very thin). This can also cause pain when hitting these areas and breaking them off can also probably be felt by the person applying the acrylic nail (if they are applying them) and they may not be aware of it.
