So after 5 years I am soaking off my acrylic nails on monday and im really really nervous. I was a terrible nail biter so I got my nails dont to stop biting my nails. I never ever bite or pick at my acrylics. Anyone here soak off their acrylics after a while, and my main questions is....how long does it take for you nails to get back to normal...or some what normal where they stop peeling and breaking. I figured it would keep them super super short until they can get back to normal.
