      Yes you can. :) I always get my nails done, and I have a pool, and nothing happened. Just make sure to moisturize your hands!

      Yeah probably, I think that the clorine content of the water might loosen them abit but you will probably be fine. They might not look as nice as before and if you have painted them or had them painted profesionally it may damage the paint a little. Overall I’d say yeah, go for it, it’s more likely to be OK than a disaster, right? Just be careful and maybe don’t jump into the pool or mess about alot or they might fall off. Good Luck xox

      yes should be fine, ring them back and ask to doubly make sure.

    • Emily J says:

      Yes, your nails will be okay in the pool.
      The only thing you need to watch out for with acrylic nails is nail polish remover.

      Have fun swimming!

      No I don’t recommend it, I went swimming with mine on and had to dig them out of the pump.

    • lakaloki says:

      Absolutly, they are way better than natural nails, as long as your not swimming in nail polish remover you will be absolutly fine.

    • Casey says:

      Yes you sure can! =D
      because if you but your own fake nails
      the glue is really strong
      But in the nail places ( i forget what there called =P )
      They use somthing too that’s strong
      so yeah you can! =)

    • Kristyn B says:

      Yes you are fine. They will not fall off.

    • Megan U. says:

      yes you can!!:) if you bought your own the glue might wear away a little but there is always more glue in the bottle:)
