Hi agian,Customer and thanks for your reply.
Acrylic nails are never going to be as sharp as natural nails, and I know exactly what you're referring to, because I experienced the same situation, when I first got my acrylics. Your manicurist will be able to lessen the thickness of the nail tips with the drill, but they will always have a 'thickness' to them. They can't be drilled down enough to make them sharp enough to scratch a person's back as well as natural nails, but the amount of acrylic material applied over the artificial nails plays a part, too, so ask for enough to be applied to satisfactorily hold the nail tips in place, but for it not to be applied too thickly. Also ask if your manicurist has various 'brands' of artificial nails, as some are thinner than others.
Whenever you have the nails redone (optimally, this should be every 2 weeks, but some people go longer, especially if quality products are used and the manicurist is good), make sure the manicurist drills off almost all the 'old' acrylic material, or the thickness of the nail will grow and grow, and you will not want this, nor is it good for the condition of your own nails.
Also, question your manicurist re: the different types of artificial nails available, for example 'satin wraps' and 'gels'. You might find them less thick at the tips, than the ones you have now.
I hope you can find a 'happy medium', where you can enjoy the look of your artificial nails, and give a person a good back scratching! : )
