Red and White Short Mani

Acrylic and gel nails are two different things. Acrylic nails are made with a powder dipped in solvent. These are used to lengthen ( great on coffin nails ) the nail or provide a stronger top layer over the natural nail. Gels, on the other hand, are made hard by being cured under a UV or LED lamp. Acrylic nails come in color sometimes but are usually naturally clear-toned while gel nails come in polish-toned.
