Gel nails are a type of artificial nails that most closely resembles the natural nail.  Gel nails are similar to acrylic nails, as they are both made from a combination of a monomer liquid and polymer powder. The monomer liquid reacts with the polymer powder to form long polymer strands.  The strands when dry form a hard resin that resembles a fingernail.  Gel nails, unlike standard acrylic nails, contain additional short chain monomers, known as oligomers, than make the nails more flexible.
The gel is light cured and gel nails are hardened by placing the fingers under an ultra-violet light for approximately two minutes.
Gel nails are very similar to standard acrylic nails.  You can paint, wear french tips and airbrush designs on both types of artificial nails.  They can both be worn long or short without any considerable difference between the two.  Both types of artificial nails can also be filed into square, round or pearl shapes.


  • The Application method and products are odourless
  • Gel nails are very natural looking and still look like a natural nail without nail polish
  • As with all artificial nails, nail polish has long lasting staying power
  • There is little to no filing with Gel applications.  Great for people who can't stand the filing motion when applying artificial nails
