Choosing Between Gel and Acrylic Nails

What is the difference between gel nails and acrylic nails? Can anyone give me advice on which to get? My real nails keep splitting and breaking and look terrible. I am looking for low maintenance nails that won't break and will look good, but I do not want to get nail diseases. Thanks.

I have worn artificial nails for the last 18 years and did my own acrylics for two years. I bite my nails completely off if I don't have the artificial ones on. The last 3 years I have worn gel nails. They are so light and you can see through them. they are stronger also.That is what appears to be the only difference, color and of course, price.
