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.

As a licensed manicurist 29 years this whole video was crap .🤦🏼‍♀️💅🤐😵😷😱🤔☠️🤢😩😤you never dip someone's nails in the same exact powder that everybody is got to use you would take, a total differentfor the monomer and a total different dish for the powder you never use the same one for all clients that's how you set yourself up for fungus and somebody can be suing you as a manicurist the salon and may even get physically violent because you've gave them fungus ‼️💯🥴🤷🏻‍♀️😫🤬💅🤦🏼‍♀️😁😩😤💅☠️😁🤔💅😷👺in light of this covid-19 this is a very bad trend that is coming out using the same powder you never use the same on no one unless you using it on your own self that's something different but never use it after multiple clients. Everalso real acrylic nails if they're done properly can last you about two-and-a-half to three months without it bending and lifting providing you're keeping the up cheap faithfully every two weeks . And I'm speaking as a licensed manicurist 29 and 1/2 🥴💅😷🤷🏻‍♀️🥰😏🤩‼️😇🤦🏼‍♀️💅‼️🥴😎😇.

On a jazz trip for jazz band, we went to Luisville to play at UofL (University of Luisville). Anyways, it started with the girls using a charcoal face mask on me, it was okay, it didn't hurt. After that, it went to curling my hair and doing my makeup. Then they brought up the fake finger nails. I was like, what hell, why not? Big mistake. We had to play the next day. The band director told me to take them off, I was kinda disappointed because I thought it would funny to play like that; maybe get a couple of laughs from he other schools. Anyways, he told me to take them off, and boy, were they a pain in the ass to take off. It was painful. Why do girls do that if that it's so painful taking them off? Anyways, thanks for reading!

We have dominant hands. One hand will always wear out before the other. This is not an accurate test of these techniques' durability.

people are saying how bad the nails look but the prices are worst. $30 for just gel nails? In my country (Vietnam) some places does gel manicure for $5. and if you wanna do a ombre then about $10.

Tbh for the first set of nails with the gel press-on, I’ve gotten them before one thing I will say is I thinks it’s healthier on the nail because you’re not putting any harsh chemicals on the and nail but they don’t last long their very bendy and easy to take off. But if you’re looking for a quick way to get your nails done or you want your nails clear then I’ll recommend.

Next time try the dipping powder with gel polish and see if you like that? You use clear gel polish and use a cuticle pusher to sprinkle the dip powder onto the polish then cure.

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 😉

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.
