SNS Dipping Powder the most Popular Trend in Nails, but is it Worth it?
SNS Dipping Powder has gained extreme popularity over the few years, and for good reason. SNS last longer than gel, is stronger than gel, and safer for the nail than acrylic nails. SNS dipping powder is an application that consists of an application of brush-on gel base on the nail, which is then dipped in powder. The powder comes many colors to include the popular natural pink and white for an excellent French manicure look.
SNS is completely odorless with no UV light needed or fans to cure and dry. Easy application takes 45 min to an hour for a finished SNS manicure, light weight and durable, looks and feels natural with vitamins and calcium fortified. The powder and the finishing ingredients, the Nourisher oil, add calcium, Vitamins B, A, E, D3, to your nails. Being that it is fused with vitamins and calcium, this will help your nails grow stronger and healthier. Choose between 2 different polished looks. A Natural look - The powder formula is much thinner, so it doesn’t feel like you have anything on your nails or a Glossy Finish – Your manicure will look shiny and healthy with this glossy finish. For those who like their nails long, extensions can be added for extra nail length with a service called SNS with extensions.
So, how about the safety of SNS dipping powder? Unlike traditional acrylics, SNS Dipping Powder does not contain the following harmful chemicals: MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) considered harmful to humans. TOLUENE: A toxic chemical found in some nail polishes and acrylic nail glue, has been shown to cause respiratory issues, irritated skin, headaches and dizziness. Prolonged or repeated exposure to toluene may also pose more severe health problems, including damage to internal organs, such as the liver or kidneys. FORMALDEHYDE: A chemical used as a preservative in some foods and in many products used around the house, including antiseptics, medicines, and cosmetics.
In regard to sanitation efforts when it comes to SNS dipping, nail salons like the one inside of Laveda Lash & Brow Boutique on the corner of 14th & W in Washington D.C., implement some strict guidelines. All clients must sanitize hands when entering the salon and re-sanitize right before the dipping process. For clients that prefer their own dipping powder for purchase, we supply that is well for added peace of mind.
So, how long does SNS lasts? Unless you are doing manual labor, lifting, gardening, and everyday housecleaning without gloves, SNS will last anywhere from 2-4 weeks without fading or chipping, similar to gel but less susceptible to chipping like gel.
It’s always good to give your nails a break from polishes sometimes, but when deciding on a polish that your nails can benefit from and still look fabulous at the same time, ask and choose SNS dipping powder for your next nail appt.
