Sister Mefites, how do I gracefully grow out acrylic nails?

I keep them short and lightly polished, but I wash my hands a zillion times a day and so you can imagine the havoc that's created between my natural nails and the acrylics. My nail person says that it's just too damaging (and ouchy) for her to pry them off. How do I grow them out without looking sloppy? Light- colored polish? Darker polish? And once they're grown out, has anyone had any luck with over the counter remedies? I can't take the oral medicine for nail fungus. Thanks for any advice for the icky question.
