Ladies - any advice on a manicure for weak nails? Shellac is too rough and normal mani lasts less than a day due to washing hands in germy office.

I’ve heard of too many people getting infections or fungus from dips because you never know who else dipped before you. It’s definitely easier on your nails and visually similar to shellac. But I’d consider buying your own powder and not sharing with that used at the salon

I’ve really enjoyed dip powder for my nails! Mine are super weak as well, so a normal mani doesn’t work. With the dip powder they’re as strong as acrylics, but the powder soaks off so I’ve found it’s not as harsh on my nails as getting a shellac scraped off. Definitely have heard mixed reviews - people either love it or hate it, but it’s working really well for me.

I second that. Just go to place that has good reviews because I’ve gone to a few places that don’t do it correctly. It shouldn’t lift or chip and if it does, the person doesn’t know what they are doing.

Seconding RSM1. Unless the nail tech is sprinkling the powder over your nails or you get your powder never do dip. It’s just too icky. My nails are also super weak from years of acrylic and I just keep them bare and put nail hardener polish over top and then press ons for special occasions 💀 it’s not the prettiest but it works

I second this! I've also gotten really good at doing press ons so I shape them and paint them myself. They last me a good 10 days with minimal damage.

I recently started taking a collagen powder supplement and after 2 weeks I’ve noticed my nails are stronger and growing more quickly. Only somewhat related to your post 😉

I do my own gel nails and nails are totally fine. Cheaper than going to the jail salon and mine last 10-12 days.

Impress press on nails!! I used to do gel and it was really hard on my nails so I tried impress and it’s such a game changer

I do shellac and when I’ve seen dip powders removed at the salon, it’s seems just as hard on your nails. They still file down, usually with the electric filer, soak and file again. If you get shellac taken off properly at the salon, the damage is way less severe. I definitely don’t like the thickness of dip because it feels like fake nails to me, even when done as thinly as possible. That being said, I have relatively strong nails that grow and recover quickly.

I’d recommend gels over dip powder. If your nail tech knows what they’re doing, the gel should just comes right off as you sit with the foils. They shouldn’t have to do much unless you or them are in a rush, then they’ll file to speed up the process and that’s how your nails get damage (former manicurist for 6 years)

New to the consultancy world! Apologise if this question has been asked many times. My sister is getting married in India in December and wanting to attend the wedding. But my visa appointment is in February. Even after I use all my leaves, I still need atleast 45 days (1.5 months) of unpaid leave. As per EY rules, I can't work outside USA. Did anyone go against the company's rules and figure out a way to work from India? Just thinking of all possible ways to make this possible! Thanks peeps :)
