Going to be a few questions in here...
Are they a good idea if your nails keep constantly splitting/breaking?
Which look better (more natural)?
Which last longer?
Which damage the nail least?

I graduate from a nail esthetics school and currently work at a nail salon.
They are good for splitting and breaking nails because it allows your natural nails to grow for a period of time without breaking or splitting. This continuous growth allows your nails to adjust to the environment so it will continue to grow back without splitting or breaking. If you do notice that they are continuing to split or break, it may be due to your diet, it is recommended to take calcium pills.
Gel nails are the way to go if you want a more natural looking look.
Again gel nails last longer than acrylics.
And again, gel nails cause the least amount of damage, because it is not powder based.
Good luck :)1
