Gel vs. Acrylic Manicure

Gel vs. Acrylic Manicure

Here at Transformations Spa & Salon we offer both Gel and Acrylic manicure. Acrylic nails are made with a powder dipped in solvent. “They’re essentially used to lengthen the nail or provide a stronger top layer over the natural nail. Sometimes acrylic nails come in colors, but usually they’re clear or natural-toned.

Gels, on the other hand, come in nail polish shades, and are made hard by being cured under a UV or LED lamp.

Gel Nails won’t be able to “breathe?

Many people worry about getting gels because they fear their nails won’t be able to “breathe,” but nails are actually dead to begin with, so they don’t need to breathe! The whole breathing nail thing is a myth


Can I remove my Gel Nails at home safely?

Depending on your gel, this can take 15 minutes to an hour but it should be done at the Salon, do not file or scrape!
