Acrylic nails are less kind to the natural nail then Gels.

Gel extensions and acrylic nails aren’t identical, but they are similar. Acrylic is a two-step process that involves liquid and powder which air dries. Gel extensions use hard gel or structure gel and are cured with a UV or LED light. Both techniques have a similar look and feel.

Acrylic nails are hard and can be very fake looking. Most Gels are more flexible and natural looking. In addition Acrylic nails when removed leave an impression on the nails, so once removed the natural nails may show marks or imprints. Gel nails leave no hard impressions.
