Some people may think that gel nails are bad for nails. This is not the case. In fact, the only way that gels may damage the natural nail is if they are taken off incorrectly, so it’s important to inform customers of the proper processes during the manicure.
In contrast, the application process for acrylic nails is one that uses harsh chemicals which can be inhaled during the treatment – not fun! As well as the harsh chemicals, acrylic nails can damage the real nail including the nail bed as well as making nails discoloured and hampering growth. Acrylic nails may look good in the short-term, but the long-term damage to the natural nail is not worth it!
