Are solar nails better than acrylic nails?

I would like to get new nails and need to know if Solar are better.

Solar nails are definetly better than acrylic nails. It is like getting a permanent french manicure with white tips and light pink nail bed, that doesn't get paint chips in between nail appointments like acrylic nails will. Solar nails also grow out better than acrylic since they look more like a real nail.

Solar nails have the advantage of being more durable and shinier than acrylic nails. They are also less damaging to apply.

Solar nails are not necessarily better, it is just a different type of material. It is all up to your personal preference, but I like solar nails better.

Yes, they are the new and improved nails. They are stronger and more durable. You will save money in the long run. Application is only a two step process.

Although I haven't heard about solar nails, I am a Nail Technician. I believe having acrylic will ruin your nails. Solar nails seems like it would be better for your nails rather than how acrylic works. In my opinion, Acrylic works like cement.

Solar gels nails are better than acrylic nails in that there is no solvent involved and so they are less damaging to the natural nail bed. However, the only way to remove them is to nip them off with clippers, so this can be more damaging than the acrylic removal process.
