۱٫ GEL MANICURES AND ACRYLIC ONES ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
Acrylic nails are made with a powder dipped in solvent. “They’re essentially used to lengthen the nail or provide a stronger top layer over the natural nail,” explains Miss Pop. Think the crazy length Kardashian nails get to.
Sometimes acrylic nails come in colors, but usually they’re clear or natural-toned. Gels, on the other hand, come in nail polish shades, and are made hard by being cured under a UV or LED lamp.
