Nail Polish 


Nail polish is the where it all began, A traditional classic that was your only option to get great looking nails from a home manicure or pedicure. Liquid nail polish is readily available from most stores, from retail to the chemist to the supermarket and everything in between. Nail polishes are available in a great variety of brands and colours. However, there is some faults, there difficult to apply perfectly and takes forever (and I mean forever) to dry. If you are looking for super quick and easy at home manicure, then liquid nail polish might not be for you. 

Nail Polish Stickers

Nail polish sticker’s and semi-cured gel nail stickers are often categorised all together, and although have similar aspects they are definitely different. Yes, visually they appear the same, however, nail polish stickers are just that, stickers. Nail polish stickers are made from vinal and other plastics. Due to the materials that nail polish stickers are made from they are thin and have no stretch, hence if your nails don’t fit 'standard sizing’ then unfortunately you are out of luck. If you are searching for a manicure that it fast and will last only a couple of days, then these are a great choice.

Dip Nails

Dip nails are a super easy way to apply acrylic nails. However, they definitely don’t have your nail health in mind. They often damaged your nails as the removal process requires you to use 100% acetone. This process can damage your nails as typically the acetone removes more then the nail colour, leaving your nails weak and brittle. The Dip Nail product allows you easily give yourself nail extensions – but if you want on-trend designs, you’ll need to paint them yourself.
