Forget SNS and acrylic manicures. Here's why BIAB nails are infinitely better. (2023)

What makes BIAB better for your nails than SNS or acrylic?

A few things. The main draw card is the removal process, because only the outermost layers need to be gently drilled before BIAB nails soak off completely.

Technically, acrylic and SNS can also be soaked off, but it’s a slow process and many salons just drill it off to save time. Drilling can cause trauma to the nail, which is why you’ll notice your nails might look and feel weak after having an acrylic or SNS manicure removed.

As I mentioned above, all manicures will cause a degree ofdamage, but the less drilling, the better.

Listen: We explain the different types of salon manicures in this episode of the You Beauty podcast below, post continues after audio.

BIAB is also ‘5 Free’, which means it doesn’t contain chemicals like formaldehyde or formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor.

And for nail biters, the biggest pro is you get the look and strength of an SNS manicure, but your natural nails can grow out undisturbed underneath.
