SNS nails cost $45 on average.
SNS nails, also known as powder dip nails, offer long-lasting colour and a quick appointment time. They've won a lot of fans simply because they're so hard-wearing and can stay perfect for at least two to three weeks.
As with any nail enhancement, it's important to get SNS properly removed and to give your nails some down time to regrow between appointments.
It depends on what you're after. SNS is great for adding extra strength and will help your nails grow with little chipping for at least two to three weeks. Shellac adds a thinner layer of colour, so doesn't offer quite as much strength, and lasts about two weeks. You'll also need to get your nails redone every time you visit a salon with Shellac, whereas with SNS you can opt for infills. If you're into intricate nail art, though, Shellac would be your best bet. And last thing, if you didn't already know, Shellac is just the name brand for gel polish.
The wear-time on your SNS nails will depend what you to with your hands. However, as a ballpark figure, you can expect them to last two to three weeks.
SNS appointments take 45 minutes on average at the nail salon.
