I wouldn't say it's trashy, but they look ultra thick and chunky. Gel nails looks lot more natural and are a lot more comfortable to wear. They also won't soak off when you're doing housework and if they chip, they won't shatter, but will just split (they aren't easy to break, though). Over all both are good but I think gels are definitely better.
