Various manicure tools including a UV lamp for curing gel nails.

Gel nails are a manicure product that can be used like nail polish or to create artificial nail extensions. They are hardened using ultraviolet light.[1] They last longer than regular nail polish and do not chip. They have a high-gloss finish and last for two to three weeks.[2][1]

Gel nails are strong, although not as strong as acrylic or fiberglass nails, and tend to be more expensive.[1]

Acetone does not dissolve gel nails, so they have to be removed at a salon by buffing.[1] Repeated buffing can lead to thinning of the nail plate.[3]
