Sns Nails

SnailsSns Nails I S What Exactly Is ?
The new trend for your Nails is here and it won’t damage your nails.

The term “Sns Nails” has been floating around for some time now. Sns Nails aren’t new but not a whole lot of people know exactly what they are or understand the hype.

Sns Nails are cheaper, better for your natural nails and don’t require the use of a UV light, so we can understand why they have become a booming trend with alot form of New design.

They’re completely different to Acrylic Nails, Shellac nails and Gel nails. In fact, I’d go as far to say they are the furthest thing from them.

Sns stands for Signature Nail Systems. It’s a powder dipping system accompanied by a brush-on, Gel Nails Polish. The nail technician will apply the polish to your nail, dip it in the powder and repeat the process.

Sns comes in an array of whites, pinks and hundreds of other fun colours. Sns actually consists of the organic chemicals Benzoyl Peroxide, Titanium Dioxide and Acrylic Ester Polymer. These work to lengthen and add strength to your nails rather than wear them down.

How do Sns nails differ from Acrylic Nails or Shellac Nails ?

Sns has become an increasingly popular option for those wanting a manicure as it’s a quick, easy and healthier option for your nails. It requires very little filing of the nails, so they are left in a better condition than after Acrylic Nails or Shellac Nails manicures.

It has less fumes, doesn’t require using a UV light and doesn’t chip, meaning the effect of Sns will last longer than normal Nails polish or Shellac.

Is Sns good for your Nails?

As few as eight visits to a nail salon using a UV light can cause serious skin damage. While Sns is better for your nails than acrylic or Shellac, it isn’t completely good for them either. Even though there is no UV/LED light and there is less filing of the natural nail, the adhesive used as the gel polish has similar ingredients to that of super glue and the powder used is essentially the same as acrylic powder. It’s important that you go to a trained nail technician to ensure a minimal risk of infection, so you leave with nails in the best condition possible.

How long do they last and how do you remove Sns Nails?

When your nails are coming to the end of their cycle (around every two to three weeks), you will most likely need an infill. You may choose to remove them altogether.The best and only way you should remove Sns Nails is with a Professional Nails technician, who will remove the Sns with a filing tool. It’s important to note this will not damage your natural nails.

Much like lash or hair extensions, you really shouldn’t remove Sns nails yourself as this will cause extreme damage to your natural nails. If SNS is peeled off, it removes layers of the natural nail, causing the nail to weaken and peel or break.

Like all Nails salons, the cost will always vary. Depending on the salon. You can expect Sns Nails to range from $40 at MonsteraNails & Spa in St Kilda.
