Dip vs. Gel Polish: Which one is for you?
So in this article, we are going through their key differences because we want you to know what product suits you best.
The primary difference between gel polish and dip powder upon application is the process itself. Gel polish is more like the traditional nail polish, but you need a UV or LED lamp after each coat to cure it. While dip powder, on the other hand, includes dipping each finger to the colored powder after each coat, it doesn’t need a UV lamp because the activator will do the work; it will harden the nails before applying a top coat that needs to be air-dried.
Gel polish tends to be easier to apply than dip powder.
2. Lasting Power
Gel polish and dip powder are long-lasting if the application is made right. Dip powder can last up to 3-4 weeks, while gel polish is 2-3 weeks.
Dip powder has a wide variety of colors to choose from and be creative with. While nail art is easier to do using gel polish because it uses a traditional nail brush.
