Many people ask me the difference between polish, gel polish, hard gel, and acrylic nails. Most people are familiar with nail polish, and it is great for those who want to add some color or have a "French Nail" classic look on their natural nails. However, with polish you will need to wait for it to dry, and you will be lucky to get a week's worth of wear before it starts to chip.
If you are looking for something more durable, I suggest trying a Gel Polish. Gel polish comes in a bottle and cures in a light. It is instantly dry after curing, so you won't have to worry about smudging or chipping. Gel polish (commonly referred to as shellac) has proven to be very popular, and you will get longer wear with it than with regular nail polish. Gel polish is typically removed by soaking with acetone.
If you prefer even more durable strength, you might want to consider a Hard Gel. Unlike Gel polish, hard gel can only be removed with an E-file, and cannot be soaked off. It comes in a pot, not a bottle, and will give you strength, as well as durability. It is less damaging than acrylic. If anyone is using a powder and a liquid to create a nail overlay on your nails, it is acrylic, and not gel. I have had clients come to me telling me that they have "Gel Nails" only to find out that they actually have "acrylic" nails, with a Gel topcoat, which is not the same as true Hard Gel nails.

I use CND Shellac, and OPI Gel polish, and have over 30 colors to choose from. Gel polish is a wonderful alternative to polish for your nails. It is cured in a UV light, and is designed to last for 2 weeks. It is more durable than regular nail polish, and won't chip or peel.
I use "Light Elegance" hard gel which can be used as an overlay over your natural nail to give you strength, or it can also be used over tips to give you length if you have very short nails. Hard Gel is lighter weight than acrylic, and will not damage your nails. it cures in a UV light, which makes it instantly dry, so you don't have to worry about messing them up. It is designed to last 2-3 weeks without having to worry about chipping or peeling. I have over 100 colors to choose from and also have many "glitter gel" colors to add a little "bling" if desired. The possibilities are endless!
