I just got a Dip Manicure. I've previously only done a gel polish, however the tech convinced me this was healthier and lasted longer than a gel polish Immediately I disliked how thick my nails are. I feel like I've got fake nails on. But that isn't my main concern. I had the manicure on Saturday and my finger nails hurt. They are sore and feel awkward. is this normal? Should I be concerned? why would they be sore?

Any sort of acrylic topping on fingernails damage your nail bed. I wore nails for years and it took months for my nailbeds to regrow and become healthy.

I do have an acrylic over, get ready...my toenails. Toenails are typically thicker than fingernails. I take a break every few months (winter) and just put them back on. Perfect toenails and the acrylic is pink, so no polish flaking. I do a fill every six weeks. I absolutely love them and don't know why more women don't try it.

The tech didn't say this dip polish technique was acrylic she said it was like the gel polish but non damaging. I'm more concerned with the tenderness and pain I'm experiencing. I don't know if I'm allergic or what! This cant be normal!
