for those with preteen/teen daughters, would you let your daughter get acrylic nails? If so, at what age?

i am pretty laid back. I would let her get acrylics if she paid for them. They are really bad for your nails, so I would hope it was just special occasions.

Nope and this is a fight we have with my step daughter all the time. I allow gel extensions that fall off in a few weeks, but that's it. I think I would allow it once they're 16 and can pay for it themselves with their own money. I have no problem paying for needs, but fake nails are not a need.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

No, I would not pay for them except for a special occasion. Now the gel maybe because my cousin could do them cheap for her and it won't ruin her nails. The Gel, now. Acrylics-for a special reason 16 any other time once she can pay for them.
