If you wash the dishes regularly or are responsible for deep cleaning your house when it needs it, the water can actually do a lot of damage to your acrylic nails. They are bound to your real nails using a glue which does, eventually have to be soaked off, so, while it is very strong, it’s only going to be able to withstand a certain amount of wear and tear before starting to break down. House jobs like washing the dishes, cleaning and other things that involve your fingers getting wet can break the glue’s bond to your nails. Over time, it will wear them down and the tips will no longer stay on your fingers. The best way to avoid this and prevent any cleaning-related nail issues is by wearing rubber gloves when doing any household jobs like this, and it will protect your nails from the water and other liquids.
