Dip Powder Application Instructions

Posted by DIPALICIOUS NAILS on

What is Dip Powder?

Dip powder is an acrylic nail enhancement that makes nails strong like traditional acrylic and shiny like gel.  Dip powder manicures require no UV lights to cure, dry almost instantly and can last up to 2-3 weeks.  

The acrylic used in my dip powders are sourced and manufactured in the USA.  I use only high quality cosmetic grade pigments, micas, glitters and flakes in my handcrafted colors.

New to Dipping? Try one of the Starter Kits! A little practice with application and you’ll be ready to create your own fabulous nails. You could also take your colors to a professional dip powder nail tech and have them apply it for you!

I'm always adding new colors to the shop, so check back often.
Thanks for shopping Dipalicious!

DIP POWDER APPLICATION WITH DIP LIQUIDS

1. Clean and shape the nails, apply Prep or isopropyl alcohol and let dry.

2. Working one hand at a time, apply an even layer of 2in1 Dip Base/Top Coat and dip nail into the powder or pour the powder onto the nail.  Tap off excess powder, press down the dip or glitter if needed, clean around cuticles and continue to the next finger. Dust off excess from all the nails and repeat for 2-3 coats. Remember to cap your edges. 

OPTIONAL: Apply a final coat of 2in1 Dip Base/Top Coat to seal in and protect the color.


3. Apply Activator, wait 1-2 minutes, then shape and buff nails if needed.

4. Apply a second coat of Activator, wait 1-2 minutes and wipe well with a lint free wipe.

5. Using quick and light strokes, apply 2in1 Dip Base/Top Coat or Easy Dip Top Coat on all the nails. Repeat for a 2nd or 3rd layer so the surface gets smooth and shiny allowing 30-60 seconds to dry between each layer. Do not over brush, this could cause matte spots. Let dry fully for 3 minutes and moisturize with Cuticle Oil.

 

DIP LIQUID PRO TIPS

Liquid Care: Store liquids upright and away from light. Tap excess powder from nails to prevent over contamination. For thickened liquids, Dipalicious Nails Brush Saver can help restore liquids to regular consistency. Just use 1 drop at a time as needed.

Brush Care: Use Dipalicious Nails Brush Saver to clean brushes, remove hardened bits and soften bristles. Simply wipe off and place the used brush in Brush Saver and let it soak until it softens. May require overnight soaking.  Do not pull at the bristles. 

Bottle Care: After each use, wipe the bottle neck with 100% acetone and cuticle oil  to prevent buildup and to keep the lid from gluing shut. 

Cuticle Care: For best application, place the liquid at the center of the nail first, then continue applying from the cuticle area to the free edge. Use a manicure stick to clean up the cuticle line after dipping if needed. Keep your skin moisturized between mani changes with quality cuticle oil.

DIP POWDER APPLICATION WITH LED/UV GEL LIQUIDS

1. Clean and shape the nails, apply Prep or isopropyl alcohol and let dry.  

2. Working one hand at a time, apply a thin even layer of UV/LED Base Gel and dip nail into the powder or pour the powder onto the nail.  Tap off excess powder, gently press down the dip or glitter if needed, clean around cuticles and continue to the next finger being mindful that all the nails are still wet until they are cured under uv light. Cure for 30-60 seconds in a UV/LED nail lamp, dust off excess powder and repeat for 2-3 coats on each nail. Remember to cap your edges.

3. Gently shape and roughly buff nails if needed.  Cleanse excess dust with isopropyl alcohol.

4. Apply a thin layer of UV/LED No Wipe Top Gel, cure for 30-60 seconds in a UV/LED nail lamp and moisturize with Cuticle Oil.

 

GEL LIQUID PRO TIPS

Liquid Care: Store liquids upright and away from light. Tap excess powder from nails to prevent over contamination.

Lifting Issues: Prep nails well removing all invisible cuticle, do not soak hands in water and avoid oils or products with moisturizers prior to applying nail enhancements.  Consider using a Protein Bonder liquid prior to applying gels for oily nail beds or consistent lifting issues.

DIP POWDER REMOVAL

1. File off the top layer of the nail enhancement.

2. Soak the nails in 100% acetone for 5-10 minutes.

3. File down the softened dip between soaking.

4. Repeat steps until the dip powder has dissolved and is soaked off completely.

Quicker Removal: Place acetone in a leak proof baggie lined with paper towels and rest the bag in a bowl of warm water or rice while soaking. Rub nails against the towels to loosen the dip and repeat as needed.

*Do not pull or peel off your dip. It will cause damage to the natural nail.

Also try our Remover Gel for a soak free removal!
