Acrylics are the oldest form of artificial nail and use a polymer powder called polymethyl methacrylate which is mixed with a liquid monomer called ethyl methacrylate. This formula hardens after around 20-30 seconds of being exposed to air and continues to cure for a further 15 minutes. Gel coatings are set in just one or two minutes when exposed to UV light. Thick and strong like glass and inexpensive.

acrylic nails are are a mix of powder and liquid monomer that’s combined into a blob of dough, shaped onto your nails with a brush, and then air-dried. Acrylics do not require a lamp to cure, and they’re great for changing the shape or extending your nails for an affordable price
Acrylics “grow out” between 2-3 weeks, before another refill is needed.
Proper removal is important to make sure your natural nail doesn’t get damaged. The top layer sanded down with an electric file leaving a thin layer to protect and grow with the natural nails
Overlays skip the extension step. A great way to add strength and length to your natural nails, overlays and nail extensions are a good option to consider if you have weak nail beds or don’t have the patience to grow them long naturally. Designed to look as real (or fake) as you like, the process is quick and easy, and will give you polished, glamorous looking nails for weeks to come.
disclaimer although acrylic builds a stronger layer there are healthier alternatives for overlays such as organic gel.
Gel tends to be softer and more flexible than acrylic, and [gel extensions] tend to be not as damaging. the chemical difference between gel and acrylic is that gel is already mixed and needs to be cured with an LED or UV lamp, while acrylic requires mixing as you go.
