Janita Nails Spa & Lashes | 5+ Hot Trend that you should try

Are dip nails as strong as acrylic?

Dip Powder is here to help you solve all those problems. It's stronger than gel, lasts like acrylics, doesn't need a light, and won't ruin your nails. It's the nail Revolution you've been waiting for. The two types of manicures women get most often in a salon are gel polish or acrylic manicures. 

Dip powder (also known as SNS, for the brand Signature Nail Systems) nails have grown in popularity, but before trying this trendy new service, there's at least one woman warning to proceed with caution. Most dip powders are a combination of a glue-type liquid and powder that hardens when it hits the air, and leaves long-lasting color on your -- nails minus the need for any ultraviolet (UV) lighting to cure or dry. There also isn't the pungent smell that's often associated with gel or acrylic.

Dip requires a resin-based agent like super glue, whereas acrylics require a monomer to form the acrylic nails.” A monomer is a chemical liquid that holds the acrylic and the nail together. It poses a strong chemical smell — you know the one as soon as you walk into a salon.

Difference between gel and acrylics nails

But first of all, let’s check out the definition of acrylics and gel nails.

What are they?

Definition

Acrylics, the most popular artificial nail, are a combination of a liquid and powder that creates a hard, protective layer over the natural nail. A nail tip is applied to the nail, then a ball is created by dipping a brush into liquid monomer and placing the wet brush in powder polymer. This ball is placed on the nail bed and patted into place using liquid monomer. The finished product is cured, normally by air drying.Gel nails are quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of artificial nail application. In order to achieve gel nails, a nail tip is first applied if the length of the nails needs to be extended. Then two to three layers of gel nail polish are applied with each layer being cured using a UV lamp. The nail is then filed and polished with the desired color or decorated with nail art.
