Insider’s Caroline Aghajanian visited Nails Paradise in Los Angeles to learn about some of the different nail techniques they offer and picked four of the most popular to try. She wore sculptured acrylic nail forms with gel extensions for three weeks, and then a gel manicure with dipping powder for three weeks. She determined which nail technique is the best, factoring in the time it takes to paint the nails, cost, overall look, and longevity.

The healthiest for your nails is gel polish. The dip powder is very unsanitary because everyone and their mama dips their nails in that little jar and there’s maybe a spec of vitamins in it lol it’s a form of acrylic like the other two. I’ve never heard of the X one but I’m assuming that’s also acrylic. Gel polish and “Real” hard gel are best for ur nails. It doesn’t cause allergies and has no odor . I’m a licensed Cosmetologist 😉

I've done a gel manicure. Basically didn't even last 3 weeks as the shop staff didn't cure the polish enough

This isn’t very accurate because you have a dominant hand. Of course you are going to see some wear and tear on one hand first.

girl you need to go to a better salon smh 😑 as someone who has brittle nails and is and nursing and cleaning and rough on my hands... dips are the only thing that hold up on my nails and is the only time ive been able to grow my natural nails out. No cracks or breaks either. I guess they may be considered short but I have to keep them functional enough for gloves safety and care. DOWNSIDE? Pricey. I do get french mani dip and then toes french with gel. UPSIDE Long lasting (3-4w till fill) Strong&durable able to grow natural nails beyond my finger tip for once in my life *i do have periods that i let mg nails breathe& take vitamins. They have always split and cracked and teared even with protectors oils and polish hardener Doesnt seem as damaging as acrylics tips were(natural nail stronger,thicker,no dents) (TO ME) they look more natural I've tried All other types and nothing else compares for me. I've been going to salons for about 5 years...many different ones... I've stuck to french dips for about a year now. I just love how put together I look with them and anything I wear. If i did plain color itd be about 20 bucks cheaper but personal preferance 🤷‍♀️❤🤙

Also MAKE SURE your tech pours dips in separate container. ALWAYS check salon sanitiary practices.🤮

So here is the thing. Gel is GREAT for you. But what works for you doesn’t always work for others. I have family members who are super hard with their hands and need expertly sculpted acrylic nails. Other wise they crack and chip. Gel, easily peels off in the week. And dip cracks. This is a good idea for a video, but the person is a HUGE variable on what manicure is actually the best.

If you want to show people different nail techniques make sure they are using the product the correct and sanitize way! #yourfingershouldhavefelloff

The shop has a 4.4 star rating if you guys were wondering. I’m not saying it’s good but I was curious to know how well rated they were 🤷🏽‍♀️

First set of manicures look atrocious, also the square tips shape are so stripper 80's that's one way to make you age 15-20 years in an hour.

I'm the farthest from nail enthusiast & so far I've only watched some BRvid channels out of curiosity... but even I can see that this LA branch or the nail technician that did your nails failed so hard. Both jobs were an insult to your loyalty to the brand name.

Wtf that nail application was trash. My nail tech charges me $35 for a full set of gel nails and the nails last longer!

I also think gel nails had a great outcome but it’s proven that the light they use to set the gel polish can contribute to the risk of skin cancer!

What about straight up gel nails? Those extensions are only glorified press ons. Sculptured gel vs sculptured acrylic is more comparable.

omg the way you were acting with the nails made me sick to my stomach. you can very easily damage your nails by trying to break acrylics. learn about nails before you do things like that!!

Dip lasts longer hands down. It shouldn’t be that transparent, they didn’t apply enough coats of color and didn’t file or shape it after which it needs.
