What are the most common injuries sustained when having acrylic nails?
This question is one that our personal injury specialists are asked a few times a week, closely followed by, 'are acrylic nail fumes harmful?', and 'can I be allergic to acrylic nails?' The answer to both questions, is quite simply, yes.
Fumes from laser cut acrylic, as is used to make acrylic nails, has a distinctive, strong smell that can cause discomfort to you if you having acrylic nails applied. Acrylic fumes can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, irritation and itchy eyes. The dust created when acrylic nails are filed and shaped is fine enough to easily enter the respiratory system, and when there it can cause asthma, the warning signs of which are tightness of the chest, shortness of breath and wheezing.
Can acrylic nails cause serious injuries?
The chemicals and glues used by nail salons to ensure that the nail extensions stay in place, and to coat the acrylic nails, such as resins and formaldehyde, are extremely toxic, and notoriously bad for your health.
Our personal injury solicitors have found that the resins and formaldehyde used in the application of false acrylic nails, have been known to cause cancer. Some nail technicians also use the highly noxious and harmful chemical methyl methacrylate. Methyl methacrylate dries quickly and easily at room temperature, and has full bond strength soon after application to your natural nail. This kind of acrylic nail glue is resistant to shear, peel, and impact stress; it is however linked with damage to unborn, developing fetus, and contact can irritate the eyes, skin, nose and throat. Breathing Methyl Methacrylate can irritate the lungs causing coughing and/or shortness of breath. All nail bars are covered by the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, meaning that they are required to control risks and protect the health of their clients. This will include providing adequate ventilation in public areas.
Can I be allergic to acrylic nails?
MG Legal’s personal injury experts have successfully pursued claims against nail technicians, as a result of our clients having an allergic reaction to the chemicals used in the gel, acrylic nails, and gel polish, applied to their new acrylic nails. Any of the Methyl methacrylate chemicals can cause a severe, itchy rash anywhere on the body, not just the fingertips, says the British Association of Dermatologists. If you are injured, and believe that the nail bar has been negligent, not had the experience required to apply your acrylic nails, or been using chemicals that cause an allergy, then contact MG Legal, for a no obligation chat about your injuries.
Why does my acrylic nail hurt?
A question MG Legal’s personal injury experts are often asked by clients injured as a result of a nail salon’s negligence. Why does my acrylic nail hurt? If you have suffered poor treatment at the hands of a nail bar, then the soreness you are feeling is probably because the nail technician has drilled your original nail too deeply, or has filed off too much of your natural nail, leaving the natural nail weak, and the nail bed open to bacterial infection.
To prevent personal injury, nail technicians should not use a drill on your natural nail, but instead, should just a nail file that is not electric. Using a nail file often takes the technician longer, hence the reason why they choose to use an electric nail file, with the end result being a client with new acrylic nails, but with an infected nail bed.

Should I have had a patch test before my acrylic nails were applied?
When having acrylic nails, you are owed a duty of care by the nail salon, under common law, and the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1982. The nail bar should take care when storing chemicals, and the nail technician applying your nails should be fully trained, and experienced enough to do your nails.
This means that, in order to comply with their duty to you, the nail technician should carry out a skin patch test on all new clients to detect any possible adverse reaction to products. If a skin patch test was not carried out, and you suffer a personal injury, then you could bring a claim for personal injury compensation, on a no win no fee basis.
How often should you take a break from acrylic nails?
Your natural nails need time to recovery from being glued, filed, and having acrylic attached nails attached to them. This is why nails salons should refrain from applying acrylic nails to you every few weeks; so that every three to six months, you natural nails are given time to recover. The recovery period gives the natural nail chance to strengthen, rejuvenate, and avoid any unnecessary complications, such as bacterial infection, and losing your nail.
Break periods are especially important if your natural nails are damaged or dry to begin with, and any nail bar adding acrylic nails to nails that are already broken or damaged may be negligent, and you may be able to bring a claim for personal injury compensation against their public liability insurance.
