Caring for Acrylic Nails

I am a pot washer at work and have acrylic nails. If I leave them under water for three hours will they eventually soak off, if I do not wear rubber gloves?

Wear the gloves.

Ask your nail tech about Solar Nails or Gel Nails, I think they are made more to be in water.

I don't think they would fall off from washing pots without rubber gloves on (usually it takes acetone to remove them) but you do stand the risk of getting a fungal infection if water and possible bacteria from the food in the pots seep in between the acrylics and your natural nails.

For the past several months I have been getting a "shellac" manicure. It's more affordable than acrylic, but more expensive than a regular manicure & lasts two to three weeks. I would still wear gloves with or without a manicure. You really want to protect your hands from the harsh chemicals in the dishwater.


God Bless.
