My 13 year old wants acrylic nails. Are you a parent that thinks this is ok or not? What are your reasons? I don't want her to but I'd like to have as many good reasons as possible for back up.



Please respond. :)

Don't let her get them done by a professional they hurt like hell. If she really wants them done go to a store and buy them this way they are cheaper and depending on what kind you get there are alot if you'd like you both can do your nails together and have some mother daughter time if she likes painting her nails get the plain ones

Thanks Saijra,

For now, I think I'm sticking with no. But maybe in a few years we could do the take home ones to start off. Great idea:)

No. They damage your nails, and can be very painful when they come off. Have her get a manicure. There is no good reason to back up WHY she SHOULD get it done. Look at it that way instead.
