No. There’s always this myth about people's nails getting weaker because of frequent manicures. Nails will ONLY get thinner IF you pluck the gel polish/extensions off instead of getting it removed professionally. When you are plucking the gel polish/extensions off, you are also plucking a layer of your nail bed off together with the polish!!!! This is how nails get weaker! In addition, some salons tend to use acetone to soak off your Gel, acetone is a very strong chemical that is very harmful to your nails and can cause nails to be weakened during the process. Hence it isn’t the safest way to remove ur gelish. To better protect your nails, we use a nail machine instead to buff off the surface which has the polish, therefore not touching your bare nails. This is known as the safest and easiest way to soak off gel polish/extension.
