A domeless nail is a type of nail that features a perfectly flat top. The flat-top means that more oil can be collected by vaporizing and collecting it, thus producing more flavor and a more substantial hit. In a traditional dome nail, the dome contains this oil. It’s organized in a banger and has a smooth, flavorful hit when heated. The domeless design allows for more oil to be collected, amplifying the vapor production of your dab rig. More vapor means a more robust, smoother hit.
A domeless nail looks similar to a traditional nail, but it’s completely flat instead of having a dome. Many domeless nails feature a bowl-like structure. These bowls provide the perfect surface for wax concentrates on being vaporized. The main difference between a domeless nail and a dome nail is the produced vapor. A dome nail produces smooth, flavorful vapor, but a domeless nail produces flavorful and potent vapor. A domeless nail typically has a bowl or dish-like structure, which catches all the wax concentrate vapor. Because a domeless nail collects more moisture than a dome nail, it produces a much stronger, smoother hit.
How to Clean a Domeless Nail?
Domeless nails are also much easier to clean. Because the domeless design doesn’t collect any oil, there’s no need to worry about oil buildup. Cleaning a domeless nail is a breeze, but some dome nails are trickier to clean. A domeless nail’s flat top requires less heat than a dome nail, meaning you won’t have to heat the nail relatively as high. (Don’t forget that glass pipes get very hot!)
If your nail has a handle, the domeless design won’t work as well. The handle is meant to sit over the dome, which won’t sit flat on a flat surface. However, handles aren’t necessarily a bad thing. They can make domeless nails easier to hold, giving more stability to the nail. (Of course, this depends on the person.)

Domeless Nails Materials
Domeless Nails often have more elaborate designs and are traditionally durable ceramic, quartz, and titanium.
