Anyone interested in gels may not know enough about them (like me) so I found this great article on what gel nails are:
"Gel nails are artificial nails having an extremely realistic look. They are thin, flexible, non-yellowing and non porous. Gel nails give their customers a natural look and give them durability equally like acrylic nails. Gel nails are having a growing market with the passage of time. Salons are flooded with customers of gel nails and gel nails have been adopted by almost 90% of Europeans and will be taking over the markets of United States in the next few years. Gel nails are preferred over acrylic nails because of their disadvantages such as odor and lifting and nail damages. Clients prefer these nails due to this reason as well that they are durable and they don’t have to visit saloons for proper maintenance at home which the y would have to go for if they would have been using acrylic nails."
