Let’s talk – acrylic nails for kids.
Most adult women have had acrylic nail tips or gel nail extensions at one time or another. If you don’t wear them all the time, then maybe you have worn them for a party, a wedding, or another type of event. Even so, before you decide if acrylic nails for kids is something you want to allow. Here is a super-quick refresher on exactly what they involve.
Acrylic Nails combine a liquid monomer and powder polymer paste, with an extension tip. They bond very strongly to the nails after applied and hard, which adds extra length and thickness. Acrylic Nails last about 2 weeks before they require a fill-in. The cost in my home town is $35.00 for a good basic set. Also, every fill-in [$20], polish change [$7], and nail breakage repair [$5], etc… has its cost. You must either maintain the nails regularly or have them removed the right way. If not properly removed, they can damage the natural nail. So you see, even after just this quick review, do we really want to get our little girls’ nails done this way?
Fake nails for kids; It’s a simple Yes/No?
After spending hours literally researching and weighing the options, I must say NO – that kids’ acrylic nails are not a good idea. For starters, It seems to me, the liquid and powder paste would be too chemically strong for little girls’ nails and their sensitive skin. Then there is the fact of breaking a nail while horsing around. This, in fact, maybe very painful. Finally, there is just too much cost and maintenance involved in this type of fake nails for kids. Acrylic nail tips for children don’t make sense, especially because of the other fantastic alternative options available. While researching, I did find some amazing nails for little girls. You are going to love them!
