Well they have gel polish but these are artificial nails like acrylic but instead of liquid and powder its a gel that only hardens under a UV light. I find gel to be much easier because you have as much time as you need to perfect a nail unlike acrylic that air dries

Nice, but I think the shape is just a little off on the white parts.

Yeah lol there's an explanation for that. I used tips since my nails are really short and I actually had a different design on them and removed it. A few of the tips broke at the edges and I was too lazy to remove them and put on new ones so they aren't perfectly square :/
