Contemplating on a Crystal Nail! Read the following extract and you may change your mind
Crystal Nails is a popular cosmetic nail products manufacturer with operations in Europe and United States. Though most of their merchandises are designed in Hungary they are often made in US. The company regularly hosts cosmetic events in Budapest. Thousands of upcoming nail technicians attend these openings to learn more about the company’s line of products and how to use them more effectively. They sell a wide variety of nail related effects like gel nail polish, files, buffers and brushes, but their most popular brand line are the artificial nails which come in a variety of shapes, colors and designs. Some customers have raised serious concerns about these cosmetic products, below are good reasons why you should stop using them if you have already started.
1. They are fragile and can easily break or crack when accidentally hit by an object.
If you are planning to own one of them then avoid doing chores that demand heavy use of fingers so that they don’t chip or break. Avoid washing clothes with abrasive formulas like bleach, they can make your nails lose their lustrous nature and become brittle.
2. When artificial nails are fitted unprofessionally they can cause trouble.
They prevent steady flow of blood to the tip of your fingers thus causing numbness. If this situation is not addressed in good time then it can cause flesh to rot and surgical amputation would be the only way out. The nails also have to be cleaned regularly so as to prevent accumulation of dust and impurities.
3. They are quite expensive and hard to maintain compared to other types of nails
These synthetic nails are difficult to soak during the cleaning process, despite being costly they usually don’t last long and one would be required to buy a new set soon. Since the nails are not original, owners may find it difficult to reshape or file them according to their own fashion tastes.
4. Most Crystal Nails products go off-market very fast
The manufactures usually launch new product-lines after 6 months. This means that users may find it difficult to maintain one fashion trend for long, since the nail designs keep on changing and it may be costly to keep up with them.
5. The nails require constant manicuring.
This helps to keep them sharp and fresh, but can also be expensive as it’s usually done on a weekly basis. Moreover, there’s a specific type of file that can be used to maintain them due to their delicate construction. Unapproved files can cause damage to the delicate artificial nails.
When you accidentally break your natural nails, chances are high that the damage won’t reach deep tissues and cause bleeding. However, with these artificial products the effects are opposite. They usually break at the weakest point which is somewhere around the middle. Even though the injury can be healed, it’s usually painful and the risk of infection is also present.
Once you get Crystal Nails then it would be a must to have them redone at least once a month, this can be an inconvenient and time consuming process especially if your regular nails grow very fast. They have to be kept short or else the overgrown bottom part would not be able to support the immense balm coated tip.
Furthermore, some people claim that acrylic compounds found in these products are poisonous, especially if they accidentally enter the bloodstream. Though others claim that adding a little water to nail polish and rubbing it on the nails can help reduce poison level, this is yet to be verified.
Users run a risk of contracting nasty infections from nail salons when they go for regular manicure to maintain their Crystal Nails, some of them don’t have sterilizing machine and employ poor cleaning techniques that still leave bacteria dislodged onto the equipment. When such cosmetic appliances are used to treat many people, then nail tissue infections are likely to occur. Moreover, constant use of these synthetic products may overwhelm your body in the long run and it can react by causing painful rashes or bumps if one tries to use them. These aesthetic products are not recommended since they only look glittery for a while, but after a month or two they become pale and unattractive.
