Recently I got my nails done (acrylic nails). I finally got sick of them so I took them off today. Now my fingers are killing me! (kind of like a hang nail feels). I was just wondering if theres anyway to ease the pain? like soaking them in something?

You should never ever take or rip off your nails yourself. OUCHIES!!! That arcyrlic stuff they use is like cement. When you get your nails done, and get sick of them you should get them professionally taken off.

I don't know of anything that you can use make them feel better. What I would suggest is go back to the place you got them done and see if they have anything that will make your nails feel betters.

Yeah, Never take of acrylic nails yourself! I know this from experience. You should gone to the professionals or go to the beauty store and buy the nail off acrylic soak.

You can't really do anything for the pain since you have ripped them off. They just have to heal naturally.

Typing with MY nails are hard. Everything else is as simple as if they were mine. it just takes some getting use to.

Yeah, that must hurt. Nothing you can do about it now, just keep an eye on them and make sure you didn't rip your nails too bad or anything. Next time, either go to a salon and have them take it off, or soak them in asatone(spelling) or asatone nail polish remover.
