Gel Polish is a long-lasting nail polish which is painted on the natural nails. It is cured under an ultraviolet lamp or ultraviolet LED ensuring it does not chip or smudge.
Acrylic and Gel extensions are very similar. They are both used to extend the natural nails giving you your desired length and shape. Gel Extensions use a hard gel and are cured under a UV or LED lamp. Acrylic is a two step process that involves liquid and powder which air drys. Acrylics are more harder wearing and better for oily nail beds or nail biters.
