    Hello ILs,

    I will be attending my friend's wedding next month. I am thinking of getting nail extensions but don't know whether gel is good or acrylic? Do any of you have any tips or suggestions from your past experience? :)) Please let me know.

    DearJigyasa,

    I just saw the health related issue with Acrylic nails if its done in a improper salon. So, please check this article which I got from a websit. Regards.

    Acrylic nails generally are safe and won't harm your natural nails. However, some people who wear acrylic nails may notice a slight discoloration or coarsening of their natural nails. A more serious problem that may result from acrylic nails is a nail infection.
    Sometimes a gap develops between the acrylic nail and the natural nail — for example, if the acrylic nail is bumped or jarred, it may separate from the natural nail. This gap provides a moist, warm environment in which bacteria and fungi can grow. An infection may also occur if an acrylic nail is left in place for prolonged periods, or if the salon uses unsanitary tools to apply your nails. If an infection occurs, the natural nail may become thickened and discolored and should be evaluated by a dermatologist.
    Rarely, a person may have an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis) to components of acrylic nails or the adhesives used to apply them. This usually results in some redness and peeling of the skin around the nail. If peeling is excessive or persists despite the use of moisturizer on the affected skin, consult a dermatologist.
    The key to preventing infection and nail damage due to artificial nails is to choose a reputable, licensed nail salon. ion.

    Acrylics are much better, but make sure you go to some professional and clean place, and you wont face any problems, and just do as the nail technician says, regarding maintaining them and don't ever pull them off yourself!
