What is Gel Powder?
Gel Powder Nails - the new nail trend!
‘Do you do Gel Powder nails?’ – This is the number one question I get nowadays.
This is Acrylic (Liquid and Powder)
The nail technician will dip the brush in a liquid (monomer) then dip it in a powder (polymer). This will form a blob of product which is then placed on top of your nail and shaped using the brush. It dries by itself.
This is Dip Powder (SNS nails)
This is a two-part system. The nail tech will use resin to cover your nails, then dip your finger in powder and repeat.
This is Hard Gel
It usually comes in a pot and is very high-density sticky liquid. The nail technician will grab some with a brush or spatula and spread it on your nails. It dries under UV/LED lamp.
This is Builder in a Bottle (BIAB)
The product is in a ‘polish like’ bottle. It is applied directly on the nail and dries in UV/LED lamp.
I hope this helped you decipher the system that has been used on your nails. Please, always go to professionals who are educated and are not going to lie to you or try to trick you with the term ‘Gel Powder Nails’.
