Should You Take A Break From Polish to Let Your Nails “Breathe”?

My mom and husband are always telling me I should give the nail polish a break and let my nails breathe, or I may end up with a fungus, brittle nails, or worse – losing my fingernails. Curiosity finally got the best of me, so I Googled it. I came across a wonderful article answering this question, and explaining nail hydration. Click HERE to read!

    I think you should give your nails a break in general so I’m going to say “yes”. I don’t wear fake nails but on occasion I do wear the gel polish. That stuff is like armor for the nails and if you aren’t careful it’s just as bad as fake nails!!!!

      I agree! I would definitely give my nails a lot of “recovery time” if I wore fake nails. Those can be so harsh on your nails! I’ve never worn gel polish because I’m afraid it will damage my nails when it’s removed. Thanks for reading and commenting!
