Hello! Today's post is my second review for Beauty Big Bang. This time I tried their mirror powder. These powders works best with a gel polish, but as I said in my previous post I don't use gel, so I'm trying this mirror powder over regular nail polish. This silver mirror chrome nail powder (https://www.beautybigbang.com/products/0-5g-box-top-grade-mirror-nail-pigment-silver-chrome-nail-glitter-dust-powder) can be used over any color. I tried it with five different colors - yellow, grey, purple, pink and blue. As you can see it works great with every one of them. The powder comes in a little pot with an applicator. One important thing I want to say: Don't forget to use a liquid latex, because this powder is impossible to clean.

Women have a lot to choose from when they come to the beauty salon in order to get a manicure. However more often than not you will get asked whether you would like gel or acrylic nails applied. Here are a few things to know about both types of fake nails before you make a final decision. How are acrylic nails applied? They have been a staple in the beauty industry for years and their popularity is ever increasing because of their longevity. They are applied using a type of liquid monomer and a powder polymer in order to create a hard protective layer around your natural nails. Once the acrylic has hardened, it then becomes the perfect canvas to apply colour on. How are gel nails applied? Gel nails are becoming popular because they have the same strength as acrylic nails but the looks of natural nails. They are applied by using a base coat, polish colour and top coat under a UV light because gel nails only harden when they are exposed to UV light. Which type of nail is better? Both acrylic nails and gel nails will strengthen nail and will make your fingers look more slender. However, both have their advantages and disadvantages. Advantages of acrylic nails: If they happen to break off, it is usually relatively easy to fix it at home. Their removal is rather simple when done by a professional, the nails are soaked rather than filled off. When cared for properly and when fitted correctly, acrylic nails can last a very long time. They are a lot cheaper than gel nails. Disadvantages of acrylic nails: They can damage the nail bed which can then become a breeding ground for fungus and bacteria. If applied incorrectly, acrylic nails can look a lot less natural than gel nails. They cannot be applied during pregnancy due to the strong chemicals and fumes which are involved during their application. Advantages of gel nails They look more natural and are also glossier than many other types of false nails. They have a very fast curing time and will therefore provide great results in no time at all. They are consider a more eco-friendly option because the chemicals used to apply them lack fumes. Disadvantages of gel nails They are less durable and their application costs more than acrylic nails. They are harder to apply at home as their application requires the use of a UV lamp. They are harder to fix if they break as they tend to shatter. Gel nails are removed by being filled off and more often than not cannot be soaked off as is the case with acrylic nails. Even though both types of false nails can be applied at home, it is often best to get a professional to do it. Especially as the fumes emanating from the chemicals used for the application of acrylic nails may overwhelm you at home and without a UV lamp it will be very difficult to get your gel nails to harden. Which nails to choose? While both types can be styled the way you want, so the choice is yours. It is often best to ask your friends which nails they have applied or to confer with a manicurist as there are many variables to choose from.

UV gel nail polish, like every other beauty product can cause damage to your natural nails if improperly removed. Simply wearing UV gel polish can not cause damage to your nails. The risk of damage usually occurs during the removal process. If you're already familiar with UV gel nail polish, you'll know that getting it off your nails is not as straight forward as it is with regular nail polish. The process of removing UV gel is called a "soak off". It involves using acetone to dissolve the gel nail polish from your nails. The process can either be done by soaking your fingers in a bowl that contains acetone, or placing cotton wool soaked in acetone on your nails. Whichever method is chosen, the overall goal is the same - to safely remove UV gel nail polish from your nails without damaging your natural nails. The amount of time it takes to complete the soak off varies from person to person. The average time is 10 to 20 minutes. It is very important to ensure the gel polish is not forcefully scraped off the nail, instead the acetone should be allowed to do it's job and break the bond between the natural nail and gel polish. Forcefully removing it will result in taking a layer of the natural layer off inadvertently as is it still stuck to the gel polish. If this occurs frequently causes damage, the natural nail will end up being thin, brittle, and weak. There are a few things you can do to ensure you smooth and safe soak off. Here are a few tips to make the process go smoothly and quickly. A week before you plan on doing your soak off, apply cuticle oil to your nails daily. Always break the gel polish seal by gently rubbing the surface of the nail with a nail file. This will allow the acetone to penetrate all layers of polish that have been applied Heat definitely speeds up the process so using a manicure bowl that allows moderately hot water to be placed under it will heat up the acetone, allowing the gel polish to come off the natural nail a lot quicker than it normally would. If you use the cotton wool soak off method, then placing your hands in a heated accessory such as the microwavable heat packs used for back and joint pains will do the trick. Acetone can be very drying so always add a few drops of cuticle oil to your acetone before soaking off your gel polish. Following these tips should ensure you are able to safely remove your gel nail polish leaving your natural nails healthy. The most important thing to remember is gel polish should never be forcefully scraped off the nail. If you get your nails done in a beauty salon or at a nail bar, make sure the technician isn't forcing the gel off due to time constraints. If the technician is running late on their next appointment, the temptation to force the gel polish off is much greater, so always pay close attention to the removal process. The alternative is to do your own soak off at a time that suits you.
