Powder technique is not a new product in manicure cosmetics. Namely, it was created quite by accident in the eighties of the last century by a dentist who wanted to repair a client's broken nail using materials for filling cavities from his office. An office with a name
Odontorium Products Inc. bought George Schaeffer in 1981 and invented the acrylic nail beautification system, officially ending dental services and focusing on beauty salons. The practice of changing the name to "OPI Products Inc" (O-P-I) is becoming one of today

had in the early nineties were eliminated in the second decade of the 21st century. Thus, the powder, as the basic ingredient of future nails, is made of colored pigments and acrylic polymers, which gives the basic glue (Cyanoacrylate), which is weak and easy to decompose without any reinforcement, the necessary resistance to cracking, dissolving and removing. Thus, the DIP powder technique is something between gel technology and acrylic technology. More difficult
It melts from gel polishes that are formulated for easy removal, but much easier to remove, without filing and damaging the nail plate, than acrylic gels that are added to your nail every time due to the inability to completely remove it. Today, this technique is mostly used in the United States, Australia and most Asian countries under some of the most popular brands of today, O-P-I, SNS, REVEL NAILS, and others.
