Gel nails have been around longer than acrylic nails. After the gel nails came the acrylic nails. The degree of hardness of gel nails is impressive. The application is also relatively uncomplicated.

For a gel manicure, the natural nail is first roughened with a file so that the gel that is subsequently applied adheres better. Roughening removes the natural oils that are contained in the nail and would prevent optimal adhesion. 

After application, the gel dries under the LED light of a UV lamp. As the gel dries, it will simultaneously gain hardness. This manicure is great for thin and weak nails. This system is also used if you want to build up your nail length over a longer period of time.

There are currently three systems on the market for modeling gel nails. With some systems, only one gel is applied, with others two or even three different ones. Each layer needs to cure under the UV lamp. The result is softer than the acrylic variant. 

Gel nails cannot be dissolved with acetone. If you want to remove them, you’ll have to grind them off your real nail with a file. Another option is to regularly trim them at the front and let them grow out.

When applying gel nails, there is less odor than the acrylic variant. A disadvantage of gel nails is that they are often quite thick. If you let them grow out, a step between your natural nail and the artificial nail will become visible over time. 

Gel nails are not as durable and stable as acrylic nails. Here you will find the best gel polish: Bluesky Gel Polish. It is suitable for modeling and filling in artificial nails, but also for strengthening natural nails.
