Another nail technique that allows you to own the perfect nail shape with gorgeous color is a gel. Gels come in liquid form. Gel Liquid is applied to your nail bed, then hardened under a UV light or LED. Gel Nails have an elegant, glossy finish. Gel Nails involving powder are technically acrylics in a combination of powder and monomer, or powder added to gel for enhanced strength. Gel Powder is the latest material used for the Gel Nails system. Gel powder nails are clearer, thinner, and more natural than acrylics. Unlike thick gel products of the past, today’s gels have a similar consistency to nail polish. Gel Nails are more flexible than acrylic nails; on the contrary, gels have been referred to as less durable or long-lasting than acrylics. When you stop in a nail salon near you and ask for Gel Full Set, it means your set will include basic artwork with a slight upcharge for artwork and add-ons; for Gel Fill, it means your fill will include basic artwork with a slight upcharge for artwork and add-ons.
