Gel nails are a type of artificial nails that most closely resembles the natural nail.  Gel nails are similar to acrylic nails, as they are both made from a combination of a monomer liquid and polymer powder. The monomer liquid reacts with the polymer powder to form long polymer strands.  The strands when dry form a hard resin that resembles a fingernail.  Gel nails, unlike standard acrylic nails, contain additional short chain monomers, known as oligomers, that make the nails more flexible. A Nail Form is applied to each Nail and then Gel is added to the form and built up to form a nail tip with the UV Gel.

The gel is light cured and gel nails are hardened by placing the fingers under an ultra-violet light for approximately two minutes.
Gel nails are very similar to standard acrylic nails.  You can paint, wear French tips and airbrush designs on both types of artificial nails.  They can both be worn long or short without any considerable difference between the two.  Both types of artificial nails can also be filed into square, round or pearl shapes.
