As Silly As This Sounds.....

Recommended Posts

Hi, this may sound silly as I know acrylic nails are not a necessity however they make me feel so much better when I have them on. I do my own nails with tips and acrylic overlays and just the last month and a half I've had a hard time with them not lifting after 4-5 days. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm gluten free since July of this year...........just wondering if the inside of my body is reacting to my nails....

Pam,

I also wear acrylic nails - for 13 years now - and I have been having more trouble with lifting since I went gluten-free about seven weeks ago. In fact, it doesn't even take a few days for them to lift, I find myself applying nail glue to free edges almost as soon as I'm done applying the acrylic.

When I first started wearing nails, we had a lot of trouble with mine lifting, in fact, my first set popped right off like some kind of press-on nails. My nail tech and I experimented and found that using both OPI's Bond-Aid and Creatives' Acid-Free Primer worked best for me. My nail tech became a stay at home mom nine months ago, and I've been doing my own nails ever since. I have an appointment with a new nail tech on Tuesday, and I'm hoping that she can help me figure out a way to stop the lifting.

I have been gluten-free since May and I haven't had a problem with mine. I actually had a problem with them lifting beforeI went gluten-free and now they are fine!

Kate, thank you for shedding some information that totally sounds like what's happening to me. I'm going to try and see a nail tech that I know & see if she can't help me as well with the lifting. Mine also start lifting within 4 days......ugh. I'm still nail free and I don't like it...........Thanks Again. You by chance aren't in IL are you......

Pam,

I live in southern Indiana. In addition to the usual Bond-Aid/Acid-Free Primer combo, the new nail tech used Creatives' Retention liquid, which has their Acid-Free Primer in it. One week later, none of my fills have lifted. Hooray!
