My first ever acrylic nails - rainbow nails

Today I got my first ever set of acrylic nails. Previously, I had been pleased with the condition of my nails, and therefore has been wary of applying acrylic nails as they will damage my own nails (when they machine-file the topd to create a rough surface).

However recently my nails have been damaged anyhow, and so I figured I may as well try them out!

I went for a rounded square shape, and rainbow nail polish. 

Have you had acrylics? Have you stuck with them?
