Does swimming ruin gel nails?
Posted 09 August 2007 - 03:55 PM
I'm getting gel nails done the day before I leave for Mexico but recently have been concerned b/c I've heard that swimming in salt or chlorinated water can ruin your gels and make them look like garbage. Does anyone have any experience with this? I have 3 whole days of swimming in Mexico before the wedding so I don't want to get them done if the water will just ruin them. Thanks for your help!

I don't know how to describe gel nails - I think basically it's that they put a gel over an acrylic and it has to dry under UV. Sorry if that makes no sense! I like them better than acrylic nails b/c they looks less fake and glossier. Plus they just feel better to me. They're not supposed to be as damaging to your nails as acrylics either. Don't know if that's true though.
