Damage from enhancements

Celebrity Q and A'sCan you answer the following question for me: What are the mechanical and chemical damage which can occur from nail treatment and how it could affect subsequent treatments.

The damage from nail enhancements is mechanical only, not chemical --except in the case of allergies or overuse of nail hardeners. Mechanical damage is caused by over-filing (especially when using a product with poor inherent adhesion), impatiently tearing off an enhancement (instead of slowly soaking it off), or the misuse of drills.
