What are Gel Nails Vs What are Acrylic Nails

Gel Nails

Gel nails are made through a three-step process, which consists of brushing a base coat, nail polish, and top coat over your natural nails. With each coat, the nail is placed under a UV light for somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes to cure (dry). Once cured, the layer of gel polish hardens and won’t smudge like a regular nail polish. The final result is nails that glossy finish and freshly manicured look. You can use gel polish on your natural nails or on nail extensions, also called tips.

Acrylic Nails

Acrylic nails are made of a combination of liquid and powder that’s laid over your nail with a brush. Once the mixture is applied, your nails are filed and shaped to emulate the look of natural nails. After your acrylic nails are shaped, each nail is typically painted with a regular base coat, nail polish color, and finished with a top coat. Nails are then set under a fan to dry.
