SO, WHAT ARE DIP POWDER NAILS?
Dip Powder is a safe, healthy alternative to acrylics and gel polish. It's a combination of a glue liquid and powder that hardens when it hits the air.
Dip nails don't require UV/LED light and are typically a much quicker process to apply. Also, soak off easier than gel polish, leaving your nails healthy and beautiful after removal.
Unlike traditional manicures, dip powder can hold up for a whole month. Impressive, ha? Sounds like a miracle sent from God that we all want to be part of.
