Every girl wants perfectly manicured nails that actually last. Now that you can get fake nails almost anywhere, it seems as if that dream has come true! Many people wonder if fake nails are worth it considering they can hurt your natural nails and often cost more than just polish. I have come up with a few pros and cons to let you decide for yourself whether or not fake nails are worth the risk!

Let’s start off with some pros. Fake nails obviously last longer and are less likely to chip than polished nails. If your nails often crack or become brittle, these nails can be a good option for you. I’m not always happy with my nail beds especially when they chip and become thin. These can easily cover that up and give off a perfectly polished look to my nails. With acrylic nails, you can choose how long you want them to be and what you want them to look like. You also don’t have to worry about maintaining them every two seconds.Chelsea Crockett - Acrylic Nails

Now for the cons. Acrylic nails can easily damage your natural nails. With all of the glue they put to make sure the nails last, it threatens the health of the nails underneath. The truth is, it takes many months for the original nail plate to grow back, causing your nails to be even weaker. Also, fake nails tend to be more expensive. Although they last longer, you still have to keep up with maintaining them.

So what do you think? Are you for fake nails or against them? Let me know below!
