Clients often ask which nail polish is right for them. Here’s your quick guide.
1. Standard Polish – Standard nail lacquer consists of an organic polymer and other components to protect the nails. We use a base and top coat to help standard polishes last longer. Standard polish can be removed easily in the spa or at home with acetone-based remover.
2. Organic – Organic polishes are water-based and chemical-free. These non-toxic polishes are safe for pregnant women and children, and have little to no odor.
3. Gel polish – Gels are a long-lasting variety of polis that instead of drying naturally, is cured under a UV lamp. Gel manicures typically last up to two weeks with proper care, but also require salon removal.
4. Dip – It’s a branded powder-dipping system, in which a nail technician applies the polish, dips it in the powder and repeats the process. SNS or OPI dip manicures typically last up to three weeks with proper care, and also require expert removal.
