Acrylic nails are also known as "liquid and powder nails". These are created using liquid monomer and polymer powder. They have been around for a long time, while the gel's nails are a new addition to nail art. Pink and white acrylic are more common. Acrylic nail extension can be created using nails forms (molds).
These extensions are made using a hard gel product. They are cured by curing under UV or LED light. But many services involving the use of gel products are also called gel nails.
There are two types of gel, hard gel and soft gel. Hard type, once hardened, is strong enough to be used for nail extension. Artificial tips made with nail product to extend the nails beyond natural nails are called extensions. extensions are never made using the soft gel. Gel polishes and thicker gels are used for gel overlay services. Gel polishes are used for gel polish manicure. This type of manicure, when finished professionally, is careful with the nails, and the nail color stays intact for a long time without any significant chipping.
Gel is used to create supplements. Gel usually comes in gel pots or gelpolish bottles. All gel services are performed using a gel. Gels come in many colors and all shapes need curing under U.V. or LED lamp. Curing is the process there photoinitiators within the gel exposed to U.V. or L.E.D. light polymerization process makes the gel difficult.

Fiberglass and silk covers are used in overlay services. The product is placed on top of natural nails. These products are not strong enough to be used in extensions, so they are only superimposed on existing nails to enhance their appearance and shine. This service is often used to repair broken nails.
