Gel polish has ruled the cosmetic stage for a long time now, and it is high time people want a change. First, acrylic paint is not a good option to go back to, but dip manicures are. Secondly, dip manicures are much safer than acrylic and even gel polish in many ways because it does not use UV lamps. Let us discuss the positives of dip powder manicures to understand why they can be beneficial. At the same time, we shall also look at the concerns because you must know the drawbacks.
Positives of Dip Powder Manicures
The most prominent plus for a dip powder manicure is that it does not use UV lamps in any way for curing the polish layer. Instead, the LDS dipping powder topcoat dries within a minute or two of its application.
The dip powder manicure does not use any harmful substances that can cause dangerous skin or other diseases. Many nail polish products contain the deadly trio of formaldehyde, di-butyl phthalate, and toluene. Products like LDS dipping powder color eliminates them. However, the dipping powder manicure does use a harmful substance in cyanoacrylate, also known as Krazy Glue, in its basecoat application. When using dipping powder, you should ensure that the basecoat application does not come in contact with the skin. The skin has moisture, and thus, cyanoacrylate can stick to your skin and cause problems.
