Everything you need to know about Pre-Salon?
Gel extensions are one of the most popular and loved ways to get longer and stronger nails nowadays. Although every length and shape gives us tons of possibilities in the nail department, sometimes the goal is just to add long, durable tips to the end of each nail or even to provide more room for nails art and polish in general. That's when they come in handy.

Gel Nail Extensions vs. Acrylic Nails: What’s the Difference?

Both acrylics and gel can be used to create nail extensions. They also usually have a similar look, although gel tips may feel lighter. It's mainly about the structure of the nail, but the real difference lies in the polymerization process, ease of removal, and density. "The process of using gel is definitely quicker. There are no strong odours and you won’t have the hassle of filing or dealing with dust," explains Seney. "With acrylic nails, you have to mix a liquid called monomer and a powder (polymer) to mold the artificial nail."

Acrylics tend to be harder than gel, which also means less flexibility. They may also be more damaging to the nail, especially as it requires more difficulty in removing with soaking in acetone and buffing off.

Are Gel Nail Extensions Safe?
If applied and removed properly, gel extensions are very safe. "They're considered a healthier version of acrylics especially because they don't have the powder or harsh chemicals like methyl methacrylate and toluene," says Seney. You just need to be sure to find a professional you trust and one who has good reviews.
