Gel nail polish looks fantastic and lasts longer than acrylic. We’re talking no chips for a week, but if properly applied and cared for, they could last for three. However, not all gel nail formulas are the same. Some brands use natural, non-toxic (or at least less toxic) ingredients while others focus solely on longevity. When it’s time for removal, make sure you enlist the help of a professional or do your homework before attempting home removal as you can damage the nail bed if you’re not careful. It really comes down to finding a formula you like with colors you love.
