Hard gel is a nail enhancement like acrylic nails, except it cures in a UV light. It is NOT gel polish/shellac/soft gel/soak off gel. You can put gel polish over hard gel (and you should because it looks great). You can extend the length of the nail with hard gel, just like acrylic. It can be sculpted and shaped just like acrylic. The only difference is that hard gel hardens through UV light rather than through evaporating solvents (like acrylic). There are many benefits to using the innovative nail enhancement that is hard gel.

Pros of hard gel manicures:

Hard gel is the toughest form of gel polish out there and creates a sturdier, longer-lasting exterior.

Not damaging to the nail if there is trauma.
No strong fumes.
Bonder is acid-free.
Cures in 30 seconds.
Can be worn with nail polish for a very natural look.
Filing is faster and easier.
Hard gel is hypoallergenic, which means it is less likely to cause allergies than acrylic.


Gel extension is a process that involves hard gel built on a natural nail and cured with UV light. Like acrylics, gel extensions require an overlay to lengthen your nail. The manicurist uses a nail form, which is basically a sticker that goes under the free edge (the tip) of the nail, to extend the length of the nail.

The rest of your process will flow like regular gel manis: your color is applied with standard soft gel polish and cured layer by layer. If you're getting nail art, your artist will decorate your tips, and then your nails are sealed with a gel top coat.

Pros of gel nail extensions:

Thin, but strong and durable.

Easy to maintain and has a high gloss finish.
Flexible and lightweight.
Gel extension can be easily soaked off and is good for people with natural nails who want to improve durability, without the extreme hardness and heaviness of hard gel.
Can be easily applied over your natural nail for a thin natural looking nail.
If applied and removed properly, gel extensions are very safe.


Gel polishes are half regular polish, half gel that is brushed onto the nails. When applying gel polish, apply like a regular application – base, polish color, and topcoat. The only difference is that each coat must be cured or hardened under a UV or LED light for up to two minutes.

Pros of gel polish manicures:

Long lasting, easy to apply, minimal damage and easy to maintain.
