Acrylic, Gels and Dip Nails
A salon technician will mix a liquid with powder and then the mixture onto your nails.
The mixture hardens as it is exposed to the air.
You may notice a strong odor during the application process.
Extenive time with an acrylic product can be harmful if you are not in a well-ventilated room.
A thin odorless gel is brushed on your nail. After your nail technician applies each coat, you must put your nails under ultraviolet (UV) light for up to two minutes to "cure" or harden the product.
Dip nails are the latest artificial fingernail trend.
The dip nail treatment is natural, no toxins, and unlike gel polish, there is no UV light, and there is no odor.
The dip nail treatment provides a thicker level of protection to the natural nail.
The best part, dip nails can last three to four weeks.
