For those who struggle with the different types of artificial nails around, this post sheds more light on it and also offers tips that would help in whichever you go for.

This involved mixing a liquid with a powder and brushing resulting mixture on your nails. Sometimes the mixture covers the entire nails but sometimes it is applied only along the tips. The nail technician proceeds to coat with the nail colour of your choice and then files as desired.

Care: Over time, acrylics grow out with your nails and would require being filled in every two to three weeks.

Removal: To remove, soak your hands in nail polish removal for ease.

 

Gel Nails

The Gel polish is brushed onto your nails, nail tips and after this, you wait out the drying process under ultraviolet (UV) light to harden the coat. Gels are more expensive than acrylics, but last longer than the acrylics.
