Gel Nail Polish vs Dip Powder Manicurefeaturing OPI
These days, a manicure has more options than a frozen yogurt bar. What used to be a simple choice between regular nail polish and acrylics is now made a bit more difficult with the addition of gel nail polish and dipping powder. So what is the difference between gel and dipping powder? Take a look at OPI's handy Gel Nail polish vs Dip Powder manicure guide.
Gel Nail Polish
If your client wants a speedy manicure with shiny nail color that lasts, gel manicures are the best choice. OPI Gel Color, available in 140+ iconic shades, is a thin brush-on formula, designed for high performance and a glossier finish than regular nail polish. It is perfect for those who love effects, nail art, and self-expression with color. Not only does it offer major shine, but there’s zero dry time.
What is a dip powder manicure?
If your client wants a durable and long-lasting nail, then introduce them to OPI Powder Perfection dipping powder. Not only will they get vibrant nail color that’s chip-free, but their nails will feel extra strong thanks to the formula for 2+ weeks of wear. Looking for a manicure that will stand up to popping open a can of sparkling water? Dip nails are the service to recommend.
The best part of using dipping powders in your salon is that it is an odor-free acrylic system. Amazing! The end result is similar to a gel-like shine without the need to cure under a light. OPI Powder Perfection manicures are shade-matched in several iconic OPI shades so you can retail OPI Nail Lacquer as well. You can also create French manicures and other fun nail art looks with Dipping Powders.
OPI Powder Perfection is non-damaging when properly removed using a soak-off wrap removal technique.
So whether you use Gel Nail Polish or Dip Powder for your clients, you can be assured of using the highest quality professional products when you chose OPI. As the world leader in the professional nail care industry, OPI is known for exceptional formulas, fashionable colors and iconic names, with a focus on industry safety and innovation.
