  • These manicures are fast, simple to do, and easy to switch up in just minutes. They’re perfect for the girl who changes her outfit as much as she changes her mind.The not-so-great thing about these traditional manicures is that they tend to chip.

    Gel nail polish is a thicker, more ‘gel’ like substance rather than the normal nail polish. The nails are created with a layer of base gel, brushed into a mold then cured by UV. Pros: This manicure lasts about 2 – 3 times longer than a regular manicure – up to 4 weeks! Gel nails also keep their shiny finish (chip-free) until you remove the polish. Not only that, but natural nails under gel polish have a tendency to grow longer because of the extra strength. Cons: Gel polish does not go easily. If you want to remove a lingering gel manicure, you are going to need to soak your nails, and you may even need the help of a UV light.

    Cons: The process needed to remove the dip powder coatings is probably one of the biggest issues.  Another of the big concerns with this treatment is that it can be very unsanitary.
