Acrylic or gel which is best? I also have heard of shellac, which one is better?
Gel and shellac I believe are same thing. Less harsh than acrylic. I've done them both
Gel is great bc it's just like a regular polish over your nail that stays put bc of uv light they use to set the color
But what is best for like I want to get length on my nail like the acrylic but can u get gel nails but long ?

Gel and shellac are the same thing but I love gel cuz ur nails don't bust
Really tough choice/.\
Which* lol acrylic lasts longer and doesn't break as easily
Shellac and gel are the same thing and are really good. Acrylics damage your natural nail and leave them weak and thin.
I'm slightly biased as I mainly do shellac but my clients absolutely love it, in most cases it even lasts 3 weeks.. the only problem is regrowth!
Shellac I got the Jessica gel and they only lasted a week
Gel is far superior. It's also far better for the nails. Gel and shellac are pretty much the same things
It's spelled which
Thanks Krista that was bugging me too
I like gel nails because when i had acrylics i ripped them off. I have the machine to do gel and i love it!
Gel nails cause they aren't as harmful to the nails
