How often do you get refills?
How long does it take to refill a set? The salon told me around half hour, but my friend said 1 hr.

Acrylic nails questions

They should be drilling old acrylic back and then finishing by hand, to ensure no burns to the nail, then reapplying a new acrylic overlay, at least an hour depending on how experienced the tech is. I've only ever seen it done in half an hour when they 'flick' the old acrylic off and that's not good for your nail beds. You should get about 4 weeks out of them but depending what you do for work, what products you use to clean etc and how fast your own nail grows. Regardless of how long they last (unless you work over heat or use horrible chemicals) there should be no lifting at your refill.
(FYI I'm an ex nail tech )

Ahhhh acrylics those were the days
Well I was an acrylic nail addict before DD and I'd get refills every 3 ish weeks but I've known people to go 4 I guess we all grow different! Refills took about 45 sometimes 30 min ...if my nail tech wasn't talking to much haha

I used to get them filled every 3 weeks. Took just short of an hour and that was with a very experienced nail tech.

Thanks all. In my mind it seems like a good idea, but don't know if I could be bothered going for 1hr. I would have to leave the kids with dh or someone and tbh I would rather use that time to do other things (sleep, lol)

The one I was planning to go to doesn't speak much English, so I doubt there would be much social chit chat!
Im not sure, still considering.

Do not go to anyone that uses a mask when doing your nails. It's the best indication thwybuse products that contain mma, a banned substance. However the industry isn't regulated so they get away with it. Please ensure you sight their qualifications as well before allowing them to touch your nails.
