Ladies, we all know a fresh pair of manicured hands does the soul good. When your nails are done, you feel more confident and ready to take on the world. In the past, acrylic nails were my go to. My natural nails weren’t very cute or healthy, so the solution seemed to be, harsh acrylic that damaged my nail bed even more. I would wear the fake nails for a couple of months only to eventually soak or pop them off to give my natural nails a much needed break. For years I stayed away from getting my nails done all together until my most recent trip to LA. I decided to give solar powder acrylic nails a try.
Solar powder is different than your traditional acrylic because it is already colored, fast drying using a UV light and sturdier. Although I liked the look of them, I knew I was entering into a cycle of damaging my nails and cuticles or even more common for me, getting tired of them and soaking them off. My mom, who is very particular about her nails told me about a newer nail trend, SNS (Signature Nail System). SNS is applied to your natural nail. Each finger is dipped into a colored powder for your desired look.
SNS is organic, providing your nails with vitamins and calcium for longer, healthier nails and there is no use of harmful UV lighting which is used with the popular gel nail technique. SNS comes in a variety of beautiful colors and is healthier, giving my trips to the nail salon purpose.
The color I am wearing is #32 “Sexy Red” (duh!)
