I had acrylic nails about 25 years ago, and left them on until they started popping off, then soaked the rest off in nail polish remover. I didn't really notice any weakness in my nails, but they didn't look nice until after they had grown out.

Get some wraps. Wraps will grow out nicely and allow your natural nails to look nice while growing them out. Wraps do not need to be maintained.

Once they grow all the way out and your natural nails are now strong, you're done. Wraps will help brittle thin nails to not break off while you are growing new nails, btw.

Rub warm olive oil into your nails and the nail bed at least once a day. You will be pleasantly surprised at how fast they grow out and how healthy!

I had to take off my nails because they were irritating me. So when they did, my nails started to bleed. What do I do?

I would cover with a band aid. If they get infected, which they may already be,see a doctor.

Oh my. You may want to check with your PCP and see if he/she can see you ASAP to prevent your nails from getting infected. They can tell you the best thing to put on them and if they need to be covered or uncovered.

I'm letting my nails grow out from gel wraps and Acrylic nails. I've been cutting them short, but now that they are half "my nail" and half what's left of the Gel nail, I can see how soft and weak they are. Should I remove the remaining Gel part?

I have badly damaged my nails after using acrylic nails for years. This last year I have been doing it myself and the result is "terrible".

My right hand looks really bad. I feed so ashamed. I know I can't hide it by putting on more artificial nails.
