Technically Gel Nails are different. In fact the main difference is in the application and there are two kinds of Gel - Hard Gel and Soft
Gel Polish is applied like a Nail Polish over the natural nails and then cured under a Lamp, widely know as a Gel Manicure. and once applied properly, it stays on much longer than regular nail polish.
Hard Gel is much stronger than Gel Polish and is used to build up the natural nail and lengthen, as an extension of the natural nails. Hard gels are also known as Builder Gels. This service is provided by a trained professional.
Acrylic Nail extensions are used to lengthen the natural nail. Acrylic nails are applied by using a Acrylic powder know as a polymer and Acrylic liquid called Monomer, the two are mixed together and this created the hard nail called Acrylic Nails. There are many new options, such and gum gel (poly gel) or hard gel in a liquid form.
