I'm a musician. I play the piano and the mandolin and am a soon-to-be-waitress and a photographer, so I use my hands all the time.... My best friend plays the mandolin for a very well known gospel quaretet (at least well known around here) and she plays in her acrylics. I've been wearing the glue on kind for a while now and can pretty much do anything in them. So I'm thinking I'm ready for Acrylics. I told my BF that the next time she went to get her nails done I was going with her to get a set put on. So my question is....do I have anything to worry about? Do I need any warnings? I'll have to have them cut down really short because of the mandolin playing so length isn't a big issue....any advice would be appreciated.
