Yes they cover the whole of your nail and they damage your nails considerably. People who have them all the time tend to have paper thin nails which are very brittle and are painful to touch
edit: Yes you will see your nails are damaged once you have them taken off. If you take them off yourself you will cause more damage from ripping them upDo acrylic nails cover the tip of your nails or the whole nail?
They cover your whole nail. Whether there is damage or not depends on how long you continue to get acrylic nails. If you wear them long enough your nails will become softer and easier to damage.
they put on a tip and cover the rest with acrylic
yes, it does damage your whole nail. The tip is only half way on but the acrylic overlay covers all. It will fry you own nails --
Been there,done that - moved on
everything you have to have attached to your nail will damage it but you can go back and pay for it to be removed with that liquid but when you get it wraped it grows out and stuff but hopefully your rich you ccan go every week to get it filled in lol
They cover the tip but then the people but some goo which covers the whole nail. The goo then turns hard. So when you take them off they come out a one whole nail.
A tip is applied to about 1/4 to 1/2 of your actual nail and acylic is applied over that and the remainder of your nail...so yes, the entire nail is covered. Yes, it is damaging to your nails. My suggestion would be to soak them off rather then attempting to rip them off (which some people do). It takes a lot longer to soak them but it is less damaging to your nails then to try to pry/rip them off. And if you take them off after only getting them done once the damage will be pretty minimal (although everyone's nails are different). Bear in mind the longer you have them on the more damage will be done.
If you do not like your nails...just let them grow out but you need to go to get them trimmed when they get too long. It will take long but you will have newly grown nails.Why did you get them ???
They cover the entire nail, not just the tip.
