What Are Gel Nails?

Let’s cover gels first. Gel nails are made by 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. Once cured, the layer of gel polish hardens and won’t smudge like a regular nail polish.

The final result is nails that sport a glossy and freshly manicured look.
If you want to extend the length of your natural nails, gel nails also come in handy. Gel extensions, we’re looking at you! This popular technique consists of an extended tip, typically made of acrylic, that’s attached to the ends of your nails. Next, your nails undergo the normal process of applying a gel nail polish system and being placed under a UV lamp to set.

What is better for your nails gel or dip?

Dip powders generally need to be redone in two to three weeks, while the standard for gel is three to four weeks. Resins in a dip powder may be susceptible to water and household cleaners, while gel is solvent resistant. If your client uses or washes their hands regularly, a gel service might be better for them.

What Is The Best Nail Style For You?

As with many things in life, the answer to this question really boils down to your personal preference. If you love natural-looking nails, gel nails are a great choice. They’re also a great pick to help prevent your nails from getting damaged.

On the other hand, if you’re trying to avoid cracking or peeling nail polish, acrylic nails will suit your needs. Keep in mind, if either gel or acrylic nails are incorrectly applied, you run the risk of damaging your nails. The key to getting the best gel or acrylic nails is to rely on a licensed nail technician to give you your manicure.
