From regular nail polish, to gel polish, to dip powder, the nail industry is constantly changing and improving. With so many new products to offer, women have tried many different manicure systems to the get the perfect nails and stay on trend. Unfortunately, many women may not realize that they may be causing damage to their skin.
Gel polish is a popular system used in nail salons. To completely cure a gel polish manicure, you must put your hands under a UV lamp for several minutes. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation (www.skincancer.org), these lamps “predominantly produce UVA rays, which have been linked to both premature skin aging and skin cancer.” To keep up with your gel manicure, that means putting your hands under direct UVA rays every 2 weeks.
Dip Powder is great alternative and allows you to avoid the UV rays from nail lamps. Revel Nail Dip Powder outlasts gel and is as strong as acrylic. One of the many benefits of Dip Powder is that no UV Lamp is required to cure the manicure, lessening the risk of skin damage. The Revel Nail Dip Powder application process includes three liquid steps: #1 Pro Base, #2 Activator, and #3 Finish Gel. All three are air cured – no damaging lamps necessary! Wait a few minutes after the Finish Gel is applied and you are ready to go! When applied properly, your super strong dip powder manicure can last for 4-6 weeks. Enjoy a beautiful manicure, while protecting your skin from damaging UV rays!
