How to choose between gel manicure and acrylic nails? Which one is better?

Both nail extension methods harden the nail plate and ensure manicure durability. What differentiates them is the application method. Gel is hardened under the UV after each layer – base, colour and top. Acrylic nails become hard when acrylic powder is combined with liquid – there is no need for using UV lamp. The drawback is intense smell of the product. It may bring about an allergic reaction. Even after 48 hours after having acrylics done, they are still prone to external stimuli – acrylic manicure still binds water molecules. More often than not it causes cuticles dryness.
