Gel Nails vs Acrylic Nails

I’ve realized now that I’ve started doing gel nails again, and just with the conversations I’m having with coworkers, friends, clients etc…some people are still unaware of what the difference is and sometimes are being told they have gel nails on when in fact they are acrylic nails. Choosing the type of extension nail you want is totally up to you, and one isn’t better than the other. Sometimes it’s just a personal preference of which you’d rather have on your nails but you should know which one you are paying for.

Recently I talked about ‘shattered glass’ which was the nail trend to start the year off. The nails to look forward to in the fall of this year is the negative space nails.

Price Concerns

There’s an article that I recently read about different nail salons in the city that violate health violations and it got me thinking about how people are always asking about my price points being so high for services…
