Susansay Polygel vs. Gel vs. Acrylics
Confused about the differences between gel polish, acrylic powder, and Polygel manicures? See below for some basic comparisons.
Gel Polish: The thinnest of the three nail enhancements. Gel polish on natural nails can bend the nails, easy causing breakage,
Acrylic Powder: Many people choose an acrylic manicure if they’re looking for longer nails. Plus, they are thick and sturdy with less breakage to the natural nail. To apply, an acrylic powder called monomer must be used. Some experts and clients are wary of the strong-smelling monomer dust that is released into the air when acrylics are applied.
Polygel: There are two main similarities between Polygel and acrylic nails. Just like acrylic, Polygel enhancements don’t usually need to removed, the nail growth area can simply be filled-in with more Polygel. Secondly, Polygel nails can also be applied on top of a nail form and sculpted to create an extension of the nail, just like acrylic. There are also several ways that Polygel nails differ from acrylic, and Polygel manicures tend to outshine acrylic nails for these reasons. It has the strength of acrylic, but is lighter, stronger, and more flexible. Because of this, Polygel nails are less likely to break off.
