What are Polish Strips?
Polish strips are revolutionary products that are designed to make DIY manicures fast and easy. These products boast that they offer a base coat, a color coat and a top coat in one fell swoop.
What Is Gel Polish?
Gel Polish uses a gel-based polish and 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 a glue-type liquid and powder that harden when it hits the air, and leaves long-lasting color on your nails. Strong and durable yet little damage to your natural nail when applied correctly.
