What Is Gel Polish?

 Gel Polish requires a UV or LED light to cure the polish and lock it onto your nails. Gel polish is more durable than regular polish and can last up to 3 weeks!

What are Dip Nails? 

Dip Powder is a combination of glue-type liquids and powder that hardens when activated. This method is strong and durable when applied correctly.
