Acrylic nails piont upwards

I have searched and searched and I have yet to find anybody who has written about this topic..I guess I will be the first...So I have been getting my nails done for the past month in hopes to grow out my natural nail. I was so pissed when I realized my nails kind of point upwards thinking the lady at the salon screwed them up so I had to ask..She had told me that the reason the nails are slightly pointing upwards was due to the fact that some of my natural nails grow in that direction. I really didn't notice as my nails have been growing that they grew in that direction. Basically its just something I will have to deal with if I get my nails done. I thought it was a bit funny that with glue on nails they didn't do this and with acrylics they did.I hope someone somewhere has this same problem too..I just find it strange that I have yet to find a post anywhere about this so if you have this problem and are reading this comment below so I know Im not the only human on this earth with funky hands haha.

  1. To me, that sound a bit strange. Cause if you have not experienced that with other nails I don´t understand why you would experience it with acrylic nails. I know nothing of acrylic nails so I don´t know but it just sound weird :/
    Im thinking that if your nails grow like that then you should have experienced them pointing slightly upwards all the time, no matter what you use.

  2. nothing about it is normal..but on the bright side my nails have grown out a a lot and my nail beds are finally starting to grow..i use to bite and bite so there was a lot of trama to my nail causing super small nail beds. I have just been getting acrylic put over the top of my natural nail as the tips fall off since my nails still peal the second they hit water

  4. I have this problem as well. Reason being is because I've been an extreme nail biter all my life. The tip of my fingers are very thick which makes the gel or acrylics overlay never look flush to my nail bed. I'm hoping if I leave them on long enough this problem will go away.

  6. If they put tips on your nails it can make them look like they are growing upwards because they put the tip too far down on the nail. As it grows out it should go down.

  7. I have the same issue. I had a nail tech in the past that noticed so he with no problem compensated for that with how he applied the acrylic, I never had them point up again. My issue was solved!! I quit getting my nails done go years. Until today, just got a sculpted full set today and they they all are drastically pointed upwards, I hate them. 70$ wasted

    1. I do my own nails at home and they all always point upwards. KNOWING that I'm not alone I feel a lot better.

  8. Me too. My little nail and nail next to it all point upward when I get acrylics and the rest are fine. It annoys me as I notice it and I see other nail biters get acrylics and they're fine! I'm a nail biter too...

  12. I have the same exact problem and have searched and searched for something to be posted about this issue. I too have always been a nail biter and my pinky, ring finger and middle finger nails all point upwards when I have acrylics on. I was told the same thing by a nail tech- that my finger nails naturally grow that way. If you look at your natural finger nail closely, you can see that it does grow with a slight upwards direction. I’m not sure the science behind it. But, I’ve had nail techs who can work magic and make my acrylics curve over my finger so it’s not noticeable and I’ve had nail techs completely fail at that. There are different “tips” that have a much curvier shape, they are called Eagle Claw tips, I’m wondering if they would help make our nails curve better than the standard tips.
