Gel nails originally referred to as nail extensions made using a hard gel product hardened by curing under an ultraviolet light (UV) or light emitting diode (LED). However, recent use of the phrase includes many nail services involving the use of gel products, including the very popular gel polish logik.

All gel services are performed using some form of gel which usually come in pots of gel or bottles of gel polish. Gel also comes in a variety of colors. All forms of gel require curing, or hardening, under a UV or LED light.

Acrylic nails are a more common form of artificial nails and may also be referred to as “liquid and powder nails”

The most popular acrylic nail service is the pink and white which refers to the use of pink colored acrylic and a white acrylic powder to create a long-lasting French manicure look. Just as with gel nails, acrylic nail extensions can be created using forms to create sculpted nails or tips. Forms are special stickers that are placed at the end of each finger, under the finger nail, and secured in place so that wet acrylic can be sculpted into a nail extension at the fingernail’s edge. Thus, each nail extension is sculpted and why this procedure is referred to as “sculpts” or “sculpted nails.” Tips are simply mass-produced plastic nail tips that are adhered to the fingernail’s edge using nail resin.

Each tip is clipped and filed into shape before applying the wet acrylic and the nail extension is made.
