Do long nails truly feel as great as they look?

With prom mere days away, preparations for such a big day are already underway (that is, at least for me) — hair and makeup appointments are being planned, nails polish and acrylics are being applied. It’s quite the process, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that one should sacrifice all of their comfort entirely to look good at prom. I have definitely learned this the hard way.

  Today I got acrylics; for those who don’t know, it’s just a fancy word for fake nails. They’re definitely very pretty, but as everyone seems to say, “beauty hurts.” What seems simple enough in a picture is actually very uncomfortable to wear in real life.

  Acrylics limit every thing one can do: from changing clothing to something as seemingly simple as pulling a strand away from your face. Even typing this article is proving to be excruciatingly difficult.

  However, there are still some obvious plusses, despite the inconveniences. Acrylics look really pretty (if done properly, of course), not to mention how great they feel if you have an itch.

  In all honesty, if I could go back and undo my nails, I probably would. In the end, it’s each individual’s choice to make, and they still do look really nice. Others may have different opinions on the matter, but look at it this way: is it really worth it to pay $30 to prevent your hands from doing everything they need to do?
