As the title suggests...what does it mean? I'm only familiar with L&P and gel. Where have I been?:eek:

I covered tip and dip in my first lot of gel training (which wasn't great)
Think it's resin and acrylic powder??

Huh? What about it though? How is it applied? I'm very confused.

Google it my darling, you will find all you want to know there.

I am surprised you haven't come across it as it's been around for a long time now and is relaunched under different brand names on a regular basis.

It's a pity really that it isn't as good as marketing would lead us to believe as it is a great concept really. :wink2:

Thanks. I just had a look on YouTube and found a tutorial. Funny I've never heard of it before. Is it really rubbish? Why?

Layers of adhesive resin dipped in powder. Problem is that chemically it is not cross linked so it lacks strength ,, similar to Wraps in lack of strength .. There is absolutely nothing new about tip n dip and it has never been a player in the enhancement stakes. Surprised there is any talk about it. Very little skill required.

I've booked onto a free course in July which I fear from the description is another tip and dip system, personally I prefer fibreglass for 'weekend' nails rather than tip and dip.

I just looked this up and am flabbergasted that they can say that their product doesn't use harsh chemicals but in the faqs it says it is Benzoyl Peroxide, Titatum Dioxide and Acrylic Ester Polymer!
