Its a nail extension. It’s a combination of a liquid and powder that creates a hard protective layer over your natural nail and false tips. The mixture hardens from exposure to air and creates a transparent canvas for regular nail polish.
How long it takes: About 1.5 hours or more for a full set and 45 minutes for a fill.
How long it lasts: Two to three weeks may be more.and after the nail grow up you can come for a refill.
How to take it off: Do it at home with cotton pads, acetone, aluminum foil and a cuticle pusher or visit a salon.
How it affects nail health: If removed properly, you shouldn’t expect much damage. Nails may appear a bit weaker due to the fact that they’re filed down before application to give the mixture added grip. Just make sure your technician doesn’t over-file them, and use cuticle oil to keep nail beds hydrated.
it can be applied over natural or fake nails. The main difference from Soft gel and hard gel is that you can extend the length of the nail, which can be sculpted and shaped just like acrylic.
How long it takes: an hour or hour and half.
How long it lasts: Two to three weeks.
How hard to take off: You have to visit a salon to get these babies off. The nail technician will use an electric file to sand away gel before wiping nails with acetone-free remover to get rid of excess nail powder.
How it affects nail health: Again, gel shouldn’t damage nails if applied and removed properly by a skilled technician. But you might notice some peeling or weakness in the days following removal. Just be sure to keep nails hydrated with cuticle oil and they’ll regain their strength in no time.
Dip powder can be applied quickly and doesn’t require as much skill and precision as other manicure types. Instead of a lacquer, the color comes from a pigmented powder. Between base coats and a sealant, you dip your nails into a little jar of your chosen color. The powder will only stick to the sealant, so it leaves less room for messy cuticles. It’s also more flexible than other extensions, so you may either find it more comfortable or more prone to breakage if you’re not gentle on it.
How long it takes: an hour.
How long it lasts: Up to three weeks.
How to take it off: You can remove this type of polish at home just like you would acrylic .but beware, it might take a little longer. Powder adheres to the nail slightly better than both other methods, so you may have to leave acetone on longer. Or if all else fails, just go to the salon.
How it affects nail health: Some people say that dip powder is better for your nails than acrylic and gel. But they all come down to proper application and removal. Hygiene is very important .
