Nail Polish Tips

Does Gel Last Longer On Acrylic?

Written by Tara

You can apply gel polish to acrylic nails the same way that you would to your natural nail, using the steps outlined above. An acrylic-compatible base coat is necessary to ensure that you do not accidentally stain your acrylics.

Acrylic nails usually only last about a week or slightly longer if you take care of them well. Gel nails can last up to 14 days without any chipping. If you have long nails or extensions, you should think in terms of durability.

Generally Does acrylic stick to nail polish? Yes, you can seal acrylic paint on nails by applying a layer of clear polish. Once the acrylic paint dries, the clear coat will bond just as it would with dry nail polish. This protects the underlying color and designs from damage. In fact, many people prefer to use a clear polish over acrylic nail art or paint.
