When you’ve got long nails, the temptation is to type and do various things using your nails itself, but you should refrain from doing this as it can cause the glue bonds to weaken between your nails and the acrylic tips over time. Of course, this will eventually lead to the nail extension breaking off, and sometimes it will also bring some of the real nail itself with it. The biggest contributor to this is typing on a laptop or computer, as it’s something that can have a big impact, especially if you’re typing at a computer all day for 5 days a week. Not to mention, it can also lead to you pressing the wrong keys a lot of the time, which is just really frustrating when you’re constantly having to hit backspace. To fix this problem, angle your hands and fingers so that you are typing using the pads of your fingers. This way, you’ll probably be able to type much faster, more accurately and without the breakage of your acrylic nails. It’s a no brainer!
