It comes down to preference. I personally fell in love with acrylic because of the durability. I can do basically anything with them and for some reason I don’t chew my nails with acrylics on. I also grew up loving play dough and creating clay sculptures so sculpting nails really reminds me of creating my own work of art each time. Acrylic just brings me such joy! I do gel nails as well, I just don’t advertise it, and would personally recommend you to a fellow tech who loves gel like I love acrylic 🙂
