Everyone’s talking about it, but what is Gelish Dip? Read our Gelish Dip review to find out more…
Our beauty expert Tracey Kroukamp explains how it works and why everyone is so excited about it:
If you’re a fan of gel, biosculpture or shellac, you’ll love the new high quality Acrylic Powder Dip System by Gelish.
There’s no need for a UV light, the application is super-fast and fuss-free, and you’ll get 2-3 weeks of wear. Let’s not forget the pigmented powder is precise – only sticking to the nail, and not the cuticles too.
With an assortment of Gelish Dip colours (creams, glitters, shimmers and metallics) that will match with the existing Morgan Taylor hues, and 5 French shades, you’ll be able to customise your perfectly polished mani to suit your own style and personality.
Here’s how Gelish Dip is done and what it’ll cost:
Your nail is prepped (buffed and filed), then a base coat is applied (this will act as the ‘glue’).
After this your nail is dipped in the powder, patted to remove any excess, and dipped for the second time until its sealed with an activator and top coat.
It’ll be a bit pricier than your usual Gelish (about R50-R80 more), but cheaper than acrylic.
