Difference Between Acrylic Nails And Gel Nails


Acrylic Nails And Gel NailsWhen you want to go beyond a basic manicure you have some options, and it can be confusing to know which is the best choice for you.  Here at Beauty by Ruth, we will help to explain the differences between Shellac Nails, Acrylic Nails and Gel Nails for you so you can weigh up the pros and cons of the different types of artificial nails and pick the best option.

Acrylic Nails And Gel Nails

Acrylics Nails and Gels Nails are false nails which are placed on top of your natural ones. Both can be matched to the shape of your nail, or used to extend it. So, if you want longer nails, you need either Acrylic Nail or Gel Nail extensions. Acrylic Nails and Gel Nails can also help you to have temporarily stronger nails but remember that in the long term they weaken your natural nail.

Acrylic Nails Liverpool and Gels Nails Liverpool are very different products. They use different ingredients, have different application techniques, and different benefits.

Shellac is a special blend of both gel and nail polish. Because it is essentially a polish, it cannot extend the length of your nails. However, because of its gel-like qualities, it does add strength and durability. Over the long term, Shellac Nails Liverpool is far less damaging to your nails than Gels or Acrylics. The main benefit of Shellac is that it reduces chipping.

Shellac Nails, Gel Manicure and Gels

A lot of people confuse Gel with Shellac. This is probably because Shellac contains gel, so it has been described as a “gel manicure” but what they usually want is Shellac. Gel manicure is another name for Shellac. Because it offers such a good mixture of cost, time and effort, most clients choose Shellac rather than Gel or Acrylic.

 What are “Gel Fills”?

Gel Fill is a repair and maintenance service for those who already have Gels fitted.

We hope that helped you to understand the options a little better. And of course, to find the manicure that best suits you and your nails, don’t forget to consult an expert here at Beauty by Ruth, beauty salons Liverpool!
