What is Dipping & Traditional?

Simply speaking, gel polish is cured onto the nail using light (without the UV or LED light, it will remain wet).

Overview

Dip nails are significantly stronger and last longer than acrylic nails. Acrylic nails are a quick method for lengthening short or fragile nails. Acrylic nails also work as a deterrent to help quit chewing your nails.
