can your retainer be removed when wearing fake nails

Just got retainer. Tight fit.
Proms in a week, and i wanted fake nails, is this a no go?
Did you ever figure out if you could? I usually wear long fake nails but I recently got a retainer and was afraid I wouldn't be able to get my retainer out or in with them on. Any answers of tips?

Do you mean an orthodontic retainer? If so yes! Just try and take it out with the pads of your fingers instead of the actual nails
