Should I have a break from wearing nails?

Some people may tell you that you need to give your own nails a break "to allow them to breathe"

100% of the oxygen that your nails need comes from your bloodstream.

There is absolutely no reason, and no benefit to your own nails,  by having your extensions or gel coatings removed.
