Dip Vs Gels Vs Acrylic Nails: Which is Best And Why

We love to think up ideas about what we will wear in the morning, what kind of coffee or tea we're going to get, and what new restaurant to try first. We also obviously like to ponder what will work best for our nails. Before dip nails, we used to get gels and acrylics; let's face it, haven't we tried it all? Out of curiosity. Below this publication is a dip into the world of cosmetics and why one form is the future of manicures. 

What Are Dip Nails?

Dip nails are a popular nail design that is growing in popularity. Dip nails are created by dipping the nail into a colorant and then applying polish. Dip nails can be created with any color, but some popular dip nail colors include pink, purple, and yellow. 

Dip nails are a type of nail that is made by dipping a piece of nail material into a dip solution. Dip nails are most commonly used in the construction industry, where they are used to hold pieces of wood together while the glue dries. Dip nails are also used in the automotive and furniture industries, where they are used to hold parts together while the glue or paint dries. 

Here are the steps we recommend for a perfect at-home manicure:

  • Prep Nails: Wash hands, thoroughly clean dirt from under nails, push back cuticles, and buff the nails surface until they're shiny.
  • Apply Base Coat: Use the supplied base coat for powder bonding to paint nail tips.
  • Brush: Place nails into powder of choice.  
  • 1st Dip: Remove any excess powder.
  • 2nd Dip: Re-dip nails for a second coating (if needed).
  • Apply Top Coat: The seal color of your nail polish can be a cure for your manicure for up to six weeks.

Facts relating to dip nail polish:

  • It takes minutes to apply. 
  • It achieves super pigmented colors. 
  • It lasts longer than any other manicure method. 
  • It doesn't cost more than usual fingernail treatments. 
  • It can be used on artificial or natural hands. 
  • Dip nails harden easily, without needing uv light.

How about the effect on your overall health? Dermatologist Dr. Amy Kassouf explains the big benefit from this dip method is that you don't need to worry about UV lights. Exposure to sunlight can harm skin and lead to skin problems and sunspots. Finger nail beds containing UV lamps are so effective that men and women are advised to put on sunscreen prior to receiving gel manicures. 

How Does Dip Compare To Gel And Acrylic? 

The gel and acrylic manicure methods are beautiful but aren't as inexpensive and don't last as long as gel manicures. A gel manicure requires special equipment, such as UV lights or salons, and tends to break around week two. 

Gel and acrylic both last well, but dip powder lasts for much longer than the two. Gel manicures last for about two weeks, while acrylics lasts for six weeks, but the acrylics must be kept across the country every couple of weeks. Many acrylics also contain harmful chemicals, some of which are prohibited in certain US states.

Gel nail application does not contain harmful chemicals and is not harmful to nail beds, however, they generally cost the most to maintain. Gel and acrylic nails are alternately bendable and require removal, which is not healthy for nail beds, while dip nails are bendable and imitate a natural nail, making this process simple.

Pros And Cons Of Dip, Gel, And Acrylic

Here are some of the reasons the dip, gel, and acrylic techniques are rated better than others.

The Pros and Cons of Dip Nails


  • Easy to do at home. 
  • Lasts up to 6 weeks. 
  • Vibrant color options. 
  • No UV lights.


  • Excessive powder makes the nail seem bulky. 
  • Strangers should not dip into the same powder (but this is an issue only in places like salon).

The Pros and Cons of Gel Nails


  • Quicker process than acrylic nails.
  • Doesn’t use harsh chemicals.
  • Odorless application.


  • Requires UV light
  • Harmful removal process
  • Lasts only two weeks

The Pros and Cons of Acrylic Nails


  • Lasts up to six weeks
  • Very strong
  • Can be repaired at home
  • Less expensive than gel nails


  • Harsh application process with toxic chemicals
  • The removal process can be harmful
  • Needs biweekly tending 

All three methods are beneficial for some applications, yet others have their pros and cons. Powdered nails, which are offered out as packages, help our clients keep impeccable hygiene, avoiding a myriad of hygiene-related and skin problems. With our at-home application kits, individual hygiene problems are avoided, allowing people to save money and time on manicures.

Facts About The Dip Manicure Method

Dip powder is easily applied like a sticker and is a more permanent manicure option. You can choose from two separate shades of powder after the second dip. Our dip powder is cheap and convenient, and it leaves your nails smooth and level like a professional manicure. After taking dip nails off, they're also safe and simple to remove.

Dip Powder Is The Best Overall Option

Gel and acrylic are valued methods for manicures, but in reality, they are rather an antiquated method, overpriced, and in need of a renovation if we intend to continue to use them. Once we switched to powder dip, there was a scene that was instantly enjoyable that made us fall in love with the new process. Dip powder is an easy task to use in our homes, so it changed the game for us at Nails Principle. We loved this process so much that we built a business so that we could made it easier for all women to do at home what the salon did previously.

Dip powder nails are by far the most durable manicures available, and they sustain nails healthy and natural-looking. The process is easy, and it saves time. Gel and acrylic, it is time to enjoy yourself! Dip nails are having a moment.
