There are many ways to achieve the beautiful, perfectly shaped nails you’ve always dreamed of. However, it can be tricky to determine which type of nail service is best for you. If you are looking for a polished, perfected look that lasts longer than traditional nail polish, dip nails or full set acrylics are two of the best options.
Dip powder nails are a great way to achieve a manicure that lasts longer than traditional polish without committing to a full set of acrylic nails. On average, a dip nail manicure lasts between three to four weeks. The process of dip powder nails involves alternating layers of a base coat, a pigmented powder of your choosing, and a sealant that are applied to your natural nails. When your dip powder nails are finished, you will be left with a beautiful manicure that is incredibly durable. Dip powder nails are stronger than a gel nail manicure. However, they also provide you with a more flexible and natural feel than a full set of acrylic nails.
Full set acrylic nails are a perfect solution to nails that just won’t grow. Many people choose this service because they are able to leave with the exact nail shape and length that they desire. Acrylic nails are created by combining a powder and a liquid monomer to the top of your natural nail. This combination is then formed into your ideal nail shape. Once it is dry, it is trimmed to achieve the length you request. After the acrylic nails are shaped, they are painted with a polish of your choosing for a beautiful finished look. Full set acrylic nails do require maintenance every few weeks to maintain a manicured look. However, as long as the nails are maintained properly, the acrylic nails should last anywhere from six to eight weeks.
Both dip nails and full set acrylic nails provide many benefits. These nail services both leave you with a beautiful manicure that will last several weeks! A dip nail manicure provides a more natural look and feel compared to the more rigid finish of acrylic nails. However, a full set acrylic manicure provides the opportunity to lengthen your natural nail and create a nail shape that you may not otherwise have. This is not possible with a dip nail service. Both dip nails and acrylic nails provide the opportunity for creative expression through the polish that is chosen to finish the look.
Whether it’s for a special event or everyday wear, a perfect manicure adds a finished look to any outfit. Dip powder and full set acrylic nails are both excellent ways to maintain this polished look for several weeks without the concern of chipped polish that will need to be removed.
