When you go beyond the basic manicure there are many options when it comes to that perfect finish – Such as Acrylic, Gel and Shellac Nails.
Acrylics and Gels are fake nails placed over your natural ones. Both can be made to match the shape of the nail, or to extend it. So, when you want longer nails, you are asking for either Acrylic or Gel extensions. However Acrylics and Gels are very different products. with different ingredients and different application techniques.”.
Shellac is a blend of gel and nail polish, which doesn’t extend your nail but because it is like a gel, it does add strength and durability. Shellac is much less damaging to nails than traditional methods such as Gels and Acrylics. The other (and probably most popular reason for getting Shellac) is the durability. Shellac is very tough & reduces chipping.
