What is it?
SNS is a nail dipping system that uses a brush-on gel base on the nail, which is then dipped in a powder. The powder comes in natural pink and white for a French manicure look, as well as a range of colours.
What are the Benefits?
1. It looks natural.
There are multiple aesthetic benefits of getting SNS. It looks natural, and is thinner than other options like shellac and acrylic/gel nails.
2. It’s strong, but feels light.
It’s more durable and more flexible than traditional acrylics, and the powder provides more strength than many gels.
SNS also feels ‘lighter’ on the nail. It is a quick and easy application, a primer less system, where there is less (almost non) filing, which means less dust and less time required for your manicure than many other products.
3. It doesn’t require UV lights to set.
Unlike shellac or gel polish, SNS doesn’t require UV lights to bond it to the nail.
If this is an issue that concerns you, SNS will give you the nails you want without the need for a lamp.
How do you maintain it?
To remove SNS manicures, the gel surface shine is removed before the nails are wrapped and soaked in acetone.
We recommend refills every two to three weeks depending on your lifestyle and the care of your nails.
The product itself does not cause damage to the nail. However, as with any nail enhancement, the damage is done in the removal.
If the product is peeled off it removes layers of the natural nail, causing it to weaken and peel or break. When removed correctly and carefully by a professional the nail should remain intact.”
