Acrylic Gel Nails + Random Nails

Hi guys, it's just now that I got the chance to post. I have lots of nail art I made these past few weeks.. Btw, have you noticed in my previous post "Phoebe's Nailart Contest Entries" that my nails are long again? Yes it is.. That is because I made "DIY" nails.. This is the first time I tried using acrylic gel nails. I used nail tip extension, acrylic powder, gel etc.. I love the outcome, they seem so real... You won't even notice that they're artificial.. How about you girls? Have you tried acrylic nails? Gel nails? Which of the two do you think is more durable? Acrylic or gel nails?
