Gel Extensions Will Make You Ditch Acrylics Forever I tried gel nail extensions once and now I can never look back.
What separates gel and acrylics nails is the structure of the nail. An acrylic tip is made of plastic and requires a monomer liquid and polymer powder to create the sculpted nail. In contrast, gel nail extensions are “pre-shaped nail tips that are made completely out of the gel and cover the entire nail,”
Gel nails are a healthier alternative to acrylic nails; they are quicker to apply and even quicker to remove—damage free.
You don’t have to worry about gel extensions preventing you from doing your everyday tasks, either. The gel tips are pretty strong, so you can do normal daily things without being worried your nail will pop off or lift.
