The Ultimate Guide to Perfect Dip Powder Application!

While gel manicures may dominate the nail scene, using dipping powder is a hidden gem that, once experienced, becomes irresistible. The perks of dip powder are noteworthy: no need for a curing lamp translates to a quicker and safer process, the absence of intricate brush techniques makes it more user-friendly, and its application provides a robust shield for brittle nails, boasting durability for up to 5 weeks with proper care.
 
Let's delve into the steps to achieve a fabulous manicure using dip powder!

Step 01: 

Begin by prepping the nail and pushing back the cuticle. Remove the shine from the natural nail.

 

Step 02: 

Apply a thin layer of the Base to the entire nail plate. Quickly dip the nail into the powder at a 45-degree angle and pull straight back out.


Step 03:

Allow 20 seconds for the nail to dry, then tap off excess powder.


Step 04:

Repeat steps 2 and step 3 for 2 to 3 layers of coverage.


Step 05: 

Apply a coat of the Activator to harden the blend of powder and liquid.


Step 06: 

File the entire nail until it is smooth on the top and around the edges, defining the shape.

 

Step 07: 
Wash hands and nails thoroughly.

 

Step 08: 

Apply another layer of Activator.

 

Step 09: 

Finish by applying a coat of the Top in a quick, thin layer, and then apply a second coat.
Using dip powder may require some practice, but as you gain experience, you will become more proficient. Enjoy your manicure!
