new nail technique

dip powder nail service

This new, innovative technique is a cross between traditional acrylic nails and gel manicures. Dip powder nail services start with a basic manicure, then painting the nails with a special primer and base coat, and then your finger is dipped in a jar of colored acrylic powder. After each finger goes through the process, nails are buffed and finished with top coat. The dip powder dries with no special light and take approximately the same amount of time as a gel manicure. They provide more strength than a gel manicure, aren’t as thick on the nails the way traditional acrylic is, and have a slightly heavier feel than gel. Dip powder nail services offer long wear, lots of colors and no nail peeling damage or UV worries. Ask your nail technician if this new service is for you! $42
