    I got acrylic my whole life… Tips then powder n wet stuff , but last time I got all my nails taken off and they were long so she said lets do gel… So I said sure why not? She didn't put a tip but she did do the powder and wet stuff then a gel polish.. So did I'm confused lol

    they do have gel in powder form as well what you had was liquid gel

  4. Talia De La Torre says:

    Do you get gel fills now over the acrylic or are you growing the acrylic out all the way? Same thing happened to me I even said "thats not gel" and they insisted that they just had a powdered gel that every salon does it different :( it was in fact acrylic. So now I have a gel set with an acrylic fill wondering if I can get my next fill with gel.

    Thankyou so much! I have spent more on 'gel' when there was also an acrylic option, and now realise I was getting acrylic anyway! :( I will definitely not let that happen again thanks to your video :)

    Heads up, a full gel nail will be built up with layers of a gloopy gel. Expect a lot of trips into the UV light. What the tech did was used a nail form to sculpt the nail with builder gel. The powder is acrylic powder and the liquid is liquid monomer. Thanks to shite nail techs, I now have a severe allergy to the monomer, so I have to wear those stupid ass glue ons. Be careful out there, ladies.

    Thank you for this video! Very helpful! Sorry for your bad experience tho. 😔

    Forms, that's what she used. Sculptured nails can be gel ir acrylics. If done properly they will not damage your nail bed.
    This video could have been called my nail salon experience, facts not so much as opinion.
    You can do a gel overlay just like acrylic. You can also do acrylic with a gel overlay.
    Sorry you had such a problem at that salon. I'd stay away from "discount" nail salons. They're discount for a reason . They cut corners and use "blends" that they mixed in their own. Acrylic powder is often dental acrylic. The liquid monomer may have MMA in it. All products should be labeled. It's always okay to ask what they're putting in your nails.

  19. MoBo72 says:

    The liquid is monomer.

    This is a big scam of "traditional" nail salons. I've been a tech for over 20 years. I'm constantly informing clients about products and scams…like "powder gel" and "solar nails".

    But, yeah, those salons will apply acrylic, claim it's a gel powder, and charge you more.

    As far as gel vs acrylic, it depends on the person. There is no "one size fits all". …with any nail enhancement.

    And, yes, Shellac gel polish is an awesome product! My favorite brand of gel polish (made by CND).
