Are you getting a gel overlay ON TOP of your regular nail polish? That will explain why your "Gel Nails" are cracking. They are being done incorrectly!!! Nail polish does not go underneath your gel overlay. Now certain gel nail brands carry colored gel that is supposed to be used as "nail polish" that isn't effected by acetone nail polish remover, or will chip like normal nail polish. A UV gel top coat is supposed to be applied on top of the gel to protect the gel surface giving it that long lasting affect., THEN nail polish can be applied on top of the UV top coat.
I hope this makes sense to those of you with gel nails. Just wanted to give you a little "411"...
