Pro's & Con's of Gel Extensions and Acrylics - By Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Daspalla Hills, Vizag


Acrylic and gel nails are the flawless solution to chip-free, freshly polished nails that last for several weeks. In today’s blog, we will be explaining the advantages and disadvantages of these nails.


The application of acrylic nails involves filing down your natural nail to create a rough surface to place the glue on. When this step is completed, the acrylic powder and liquid are combined to create a mixture and a mould to glue onto your nails.The artificial nail mould is then shaped and buffed to make your nails appear longer to the custom length and shape you desire.


When gel nails appeared for the first time, the industry changed completely. Gel on nails became one of the best inventions that appeared in the field of manicure.Gel nails are basically extensions made using a hard gel product that is even more hardened under an ultraviolet or L.E.D. (light emitting diode) light. The gel is designed to imitate how natural nails look.

Are they safe?


1. They last longer for about 3 to 4 weeks, which is awesome compared to a classic nail polish that usually lasts 3 to 4 days, no?
2. They dry instantly while you are still in the salon, no need to worry. So, no smearing, no chipping, no smudging or scratching off
3. Gel and acrylic nails allow the person to experiment fabulous nail designs
4. nails looks fresh all the time
5. The gel is the most close option to natural looking nails, even if you want a french manicure!


1.Causes nail brittleness and nail thinning
2.Peeling and cracking of nails.
3.Increase risk of skin cancer and premature aging of skin on hands as hands are exposed to UVA chamber for curing of the Gel nails.
4.It takes 6 weeks for your nails to recover.
5.Removal of these nails is harmful as the nails have to be soaked in acetone for 30 mins which will dry the fingers and cause irritation.
