What is your preference - acrylic or Gel? I have had acrylic nails in the past but was wondering about gels. Are they thinner and more realistic looking?

Penelope,

I worked at a nail salon, and GEL is more nicer! And about the thin part, it just depends on who does your nails. They look more real, IMO.

Thanks for the quick response, Poohlisey. I think I may try gels this time.

gel's didn't work for me. they peeled and broke within a week and a half. I also found my nail beds HURT when they were under the light and for a couple days afterwards. they are not for me...

Acrylics are a lot stronger. If you tend to be hard on your nails stick with the acrylic. I have only had the gels once and they only lasted a week before they were peeling!

Both are really bad for your natural nails though Sad

Yes. I agree that fake nails are really bad for you. I'd would never get mine done, because they all they do is your real nails... Crying or Very sad
