About Peppi Gel

For years, salon owners and nail professionals have searched for a safe and healthy alternative to acrylic nails: One that would add length, protection and shine, without the damage that acrylics can cause.

This product takes half the amount of time to do a full manicure compared to using acrylic and monomer and with our large selection of colors, you can get awesome gel polish colors with one of our color powders. Best Part- you don't have to deal with the odor associated with monomer. 

Why is Dip Powder Healthier?
To answer this question, let us address the issue with gel polish and traditional acrylics. Traditional acrylics and gel polish contain an ingredient called methacrylate and methacrylate is known for weakening/softening nails beds. Have you ever worn traditional acrylics and gel polish for a long time and had to remove them and you noticed that your nail beds are extremely soft and weak?  
Well, it’s the methacrylate in the formulation that weakens and soften your nail beds. People say that it’s because your nails can’t breathe, which is not true because your nail do not breathe at all! Traditional acrylic monomer uses EMA( Ethyl Methacylate) and some salon even use MMA (Methyl Methacrylate – banned by FDA) as the main ingredients. Gel Polish contains some higher molecular weight methacrylates such as HEMA (2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate), HPMA (2-Hydroxypropyl methacrylate), Bis-GMA (bisphenol A-glycidyl methacrylate) as part of their formulation.
These methacrylates weaken/soften nail beds. There are studies that have shown that roughly 25% of the population shows sign of being allergic to methacrylates and being a nail tech you will run into some of these people because they develope noticeable signs around their nail beds. You might think that 25% seems too high, but chances are a lot of people that are known to be allergic to methacrylate got their nails done once and it will be their last time because of it.

Dip powder do not use any methacylates in the formulation. The liquids are based on Cyanoacrylate, which is similar to crazy glue or glue that is used in the hospital to seal a cut rather than getting stitches. Although the hospital uses Octyl Cyanoacrylate and the nail industry uses Ethyl Cyanoacrylate because it is harder and more durable. People that are allergic to methacrylates can wear dip powder without any issue. Try it out on someone that you know is allergic to traditional acrylics or gel polish. Since dip powder does not contain methacrylates, your nail beds do not soften at all, your clients will notice after the first application how strong their natural nails are and especially how strong they will be after wearing it for an extended period of time.

Why are Dip Powders so popular?
Compared to acrylics, Dip Powders are faster to apply and don’t have an odor.  They leave the nail bed healthy and undamaged.  Dip Powders are more durable than gel polish and just as durable as acrylics, and can come in any color, with glitters and other color effects. You can get the same appearance as gel polish and also the perfect pink and white with same durability as acrylics. Salon owners love dip powders because they can charge $5 more per visit than a typical gel polish application and in return the clients are getting a product that is healthier for their natural nails and more durable than gel polish.
Dip powder can stay on natural nails for 8 weeks (provided you want to let it grow out that long), good luck with just getting two weeks with gel polish! The other reason why salon owners like dip powder is that it replaces doing traditional pink and white with acrylics because dip powder is just as durable as acrylics and you can the perfect pink and white. Salon owners typically charge the same price for pink and white for dip powder as they do with acrylics. Since the process is faster than acrylics by a third or half the time, this means more clients in your chairs and clients love wearing dip powder because it’s a faster application and they get a product that feels more natural and healthier for their natural nails. The application time for dip powder is very similar to gel polish, but is easier to remove than gel polish.
