What's the real story on gel or shellac for nails?

My hairdresser was telling me about gel coating for nails. My daughter is having an out of town wedding in September so I'll need to get my nails done beforehand. I was told that the get coat lasts for up to two weeks and doesn't ruin your natural nails. You just soak them off in acetone & you're good to go. I had acrylics two years ago and I don't want to get locked into doing that again. I also heard that shellac ruins your natural nails. Can someone tell me if these are safe on your natural nails? Thanks!
