What is SNS?
Have you been hearing about SNS nails? Or your friends saying ” I did SNS yesterday”! Want to know more? Here is why SNS is the best decision for your Nails!
So what exactly is SNS?
SNS (Signature Nail Systems) 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. The powder, which also lends strength to the nails, consists of organically-processed chemicals Benzoyl Peroxide, Titatum Dioxide, Acrylic Ester Polymer.
Monika Carvalho, owner of The Nail Lab, told Mamamia, “A base coat is applied, followed by the nail being ‘dipped’ into a coloured powder. This process is repeated one or to more times.” SNS nails — otherwise known as a “dip powder manicure” that you have been hearing from friends are made with a powder and glue, and the combo creates a long-lasting bond on your nails. SNS is actually a brand of dip powder, which is how the method got its name. Similar to regular or gel polishes, it comes in a rainbow’s worth of colours that you can choose from.
“Instead of applying liquid colours to the nail, an adhesive base is used instead, then the nail is ‘dipped’ into fine coloured powder [to harden and smooth your nail], before being sealed with a special top coat,” explains Lilli Vo, SNS Australia Manicurist.
Is it a better option?
There are a number of reasons why you should opt for SNS nails instead of the standard polish or gel.
Firstly, There is no UV light involved. Secondly, it looks natural, and is thinner than other options like shellac and acrylic nails. Thirdly, if you’re sensitive to chemical odours or have skin allergies, this is the one for you. And also, you get all the amazing colours and your nails will be bathing in Vitamins and minerals already available in the powder. Results! Stronger and healthier beautiful nails you could ever imagine.
So, go on, get you nails done with quality SNS products and see the difference yourselves!
