I got my nails done twice with gel instead of acrylic and I AM IN LOVE. They last longer, and they don't even damage your nails. When I took them off, my nails actually looked much more healthy.
The first time I got it, I wanted it to look natural.
(The color was a very soft pink with shimmers)
This is what I have now!! I love it, it's a nice gradient style with gold and pinks.
