A manicure that lasts up to four weeks can seem like a miracle. Add in the fact that it won’t chip and dries quickly? Um… yes, please! Dip powder nails are long-lasting, easy to apply and can be shaped to any length. This new nail trend has been blowing up on Instagram lately, but it’s actually been a technique since the 1980s. Want to know more about this magical nail service? Keep reading and become an expert in dip powder nails.
Dip powder nails are somewhere between a regular mani and an acrylic manicure. Similar to gel nails, they add a layer of protection to your natural nail, but instead of using UV rays to seal in your polish, the color comes from a pigmented powder.
The process is simple. First, you’ll choose a powder color out of a wide variety. Next, your nail technician will apply a base coat to your nails. Then, your nail technician will apply the colored powder to your nails. The powder will only stick to the base coat. Finally, your nail technician will apply a sealant to preserve the color.
Because the color is applied via powder, there is virtually no drying time. You won’t have to put your hands under any dryers or UV lights. The powder is odor free, non toxic and even cruelty free. The colors can last three to four weeks after application, which is even longer than gel polish. With so many perks, there’s no reason not to try this magical manicure.
