Nu Image Nails & Day Spa | Nail salon 93101: SNS Nails

Nu Image Nails & Day Spa - nail salon 93101 - Santa Barbara : SNS nails aren’t new, but they haven’t been hugely popular until recent years. If you’re looking to switch your fingernail game up a bit, find out everything you need to know about SNS—a new, natural option for nail enhancements.

What Is SNS?

SNS stands for Signature Nail Systems. It is a branded powder-dipping system, accompanied by a brush-on, gel-based polish.
SNS comes in an array of colors and shades and consists of benzoyl peroxide, titanium dioxide, acrylic ester polymer, vitamin E and calcium.

How Is SNS Applied To Your Nails?

  • SNS nails rely on powder rather than layers of gel. The process of applying SNS nails is fairly simple. Let’s break it down:
  • Your nails are filed and shaped then cleansed with a primer.
  • The nail technician applies a coat of resin on the nail plate.
  • Dips each nail into the coloured powder, and secures the colour with a bonding liquid.
  • The process is repeated a number of times to create the required strength and structure.
  • Finally there’s the glossy top coat to give the look its luster and shine.
  • It will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour for the SNS application.
  • SNS nails cannot be infilled, so when you have regrowth you will have to do a full removal and re-application.
