More and more women have been gravitating toward the latest trend all over social media.
What are Dip Nails?
“Dip” Nails are life changing. The service allows for one to get their nails painted with coats of liquid polish and the nail tech applies base coats then dips your nails
into colored powder, and the end result lasts even longer than you would expect a acrylic set of nails to last.
Erica Marton states it quite well saying, “Dip powder nails are somewhere between a regular mani and a fake nail. We can consider them a “diet acrylic”. Instead of
using UV rays to seal in your polish, the color comes from a pigmented powder. Between base coats and a sealant, you dip your nails into a little jar of your chosen
actually been around for years—but the wonderful world of social media is quickly popularizing the process and helping it stage a comeback.” – Erica Marton
Why should I Know About Dip Nails?
This nail trend is not new to the market but only surfacing to the air lately due to more and more women wanting healthier, long lasting, nails. You need to be in on
this trend because it will allow your nail manicure to last at least three-four weeks (a whole lot longer than your typical acrylic set would last you!) if not more and
allow for your nails to “breathe” even the slightest bit more then they would getting a full set of acrylics. Dip powder is technically acrylic powder so it is not organic
or natural, but is a cool take on long-wear in nail technology that has been around forever. We are in on achieving Dip Nails.
How cool is @kiaraskynails' dip powder polish? To apply, you first need to use a bond polish to the whole nail to make sure the color sticks, followed by a base coat to 3/4 of the nail. Next, dip your nail into a primer-like natural powder, then do another coat of the bond. After that, you dip your nail into the powder color of your choice and tap off the excess powder, then apply another coat of the base, and do another dip into the powder. Finally, brush on one last coat of the base and let your nails air dry. Have you dipped your fingernails into this unique manicure method? #regram #ManiMonday
