Nails chipping


New Member
I get acrylic nails done and the woman who does them always caps the free edge but the day after I get them done I always have 5/6 nails all with the polish chipped at free edge. They don’t ever chip more than this though. Why would this be happening? Is there anything I can do to try and prevent this as I feel after one day it doesn’t look great

Do you follow all aftercare?
No soaking in water for 24 hours, when cleaning washing up etc wear gloves

Does your lifestyle involve using your nails? Such as typing on a keyboard? Is it always the same nails that chip for you?

I would agree with kfhxo, double check that you are following the correct aftercare. If you are unsure talk to your nail technician next time you get your nail done.


I dont think your nail tech is good.... I have clients 3+ weeks chips free.
