I had NO idea that they hurt like this! I’m so glad my mom told me to go 3 days before the wedding instead of the day-of like I was planning, lol.
any advice on how to feel better? I can’t FUNCTION! And i have a to-do list a mile long!

What kind of nails are they? I personally am severley allergic to acrycil and gel nails. My fingers burn and itch like crazy and in a few days or less they begin to swell and ooze. I know, yuck, sorry. If this happens you need to get them off right away.
If this is your first time with nails they may hurt for a day or two just to get used to. It is not a gentle process and for virgin nails some damage could be done.
I have been doing my own fiberglass wraps for a while now and I love them. They look so natural and they are CHEAP and strong.

Hmm I had gel nails and remember a little bit of almost pressure where the gel met my nail beds, but not really pain… maybe a little annoyance where they pushed back the cuticles and stuff, but really hurting is a little concerning!

I’ve had that happen before!! It was soooo painful, I tried to just ignore it but eventually I ripped them off (which also hurt quite badly). It’s weird, I’ve had acrylics a few times but only had the intense pain thing happen twice. I read somewhere that it was bad acrylic, but who knows.

I got gel nails last month and the cirst two days they hurt but after they were great. I can do almost amything and they look perfect! I dont like having to get theM filled every two weeks and one came off once and it hurt replacing it but other then that i love them.

I always have sore fingers after getting them done. I usually take some advil and it goes away.

Yup… Always hurts for me at first – Usually they’re fine within 2 days, so you should be fine. Good thing you’ve got your mom 🙂

As long as they’re just sore (like bruised feeling) and not burning, you’re probably fine. if they’re burning it might be an allergric reaction or something like that.

My inner nail tech is PISSED at this thread, the reason… NAILS SHOULD NEVER HURT!!!!
How many of you went to a NSS ( Nonstandard Salon)???
How many had their nails destroyed by a “tech” with an Efile?
A proper TRAINED technician would NEVER do work that would leave you with sore painful nails. Please find a proper technician, they should never use an efile (drill) on your natural nails NO EXCUSES.
Please read up on NSS nails …

@Mrsroup: To be honest, I’m not even sure if we have nail places that aren’t Asian in my town. I’m not sure if they are all nonstandard though. I know the only one I’ve ever been to uses a drill. It leaves my nails thin and peely for MONTHS afterwards.
Is there a way to find a salon that is standard?

@Mrsroup: Haha… Yet another reason why you need to start a beauty thread 🙂

@paigers91: There are tons of ways to protect yourself (and your nails.)
Be outspoken, demand to see qualifications, like state license and training certificates. As a tech I LOVE showing all mone off (I keep a binder in my drawer along with photos of my work.)
Look on a site such as CND to find their authorized salons. You must pass strict rules on product application/removal to be featured on these sites. What is your zip code?
