What You Need To Know About Powder Dip Nails Before You Book Your Appointment
When booking your nail appointment it is good to know your options when it comes to finding a nail service that is right for you. We can all say there has been one point in our lives where we chose to just “stick to what we know,” and that is totally okay! A fresh set of gel polish has become more popular as the years go on, and we know why. They’re long-lasting, they add an extra layer of protection on your nails, they look and feel like your natural nails, and so much more. If you enjoy all these benefits, you also may want to check out our Powder Dip Service.
What are Powder Dipped Nails
The Powder Dip nail service is one you may have already seen on your Instagram or TikTok feed. It can be pretty enticing to watch the Nail tech place each nail in the powder dip and see the end result. We know...we’re guilty of watching those videos too! After watching these videos, you may still be asking, what is a Powder Dip Nail service? Here is what you need to know before you book your appointment.
The powder dip nail technique involves dipping the nail into a colored powder. You may also see the powder applied with a brush. After the powder is put into place, the Nail Tech will use a clear sealant on top to act as a barrier. The end result is a longer-lasting, chip-free manicure that can remain in great condition for up to a month. Another way to look at this service is a hybrid between gel nail polish and acrylic extensions. A Powder Dip Nail service gives you the flexibility of gel nails and the durability of acrylic nails.
How are Powder Dip Nails Done
The great thing about Powder Dip Nail services is that you won’t be sitting in the salon for hours on end. Sometimes those days are needed and well deserved. However, other times a quick, “get in and get out” option is valued due to a hectic home life schedule. Your Nail Tech can perform the Powder Dip Nail Service in four easy steps.
Nails are Prepped
It is important prior to starting the service, that your nails are prepared by cleaning and freeing the nail plate of any dirt and oils. This is also where your tech will push your cuticles back and buff the surface of the nail plate.
Bonder is Applied
Once your nails are cleaned and prepped, your tech will apply a bonder so that the product has something to adhere to. This also will lessen the chance of lifting.
Base and Powder are Applied
Once you’ve applied the base coat to a single nail, it is then dipped into the dipping tray of powder and repeated on each nail, making sure to brush off any excess. Based on your desired opacity and color intensity, your tech may re-dip your nails two to three times.
This step is to dry and harden the product. After your tech shapes and files your nails to your desired look, they will then apply a topcoat.
So easy and you have a fresh set of nails! With the boom of powder dip nails, companies have been able to provide a wide array of color choices, just as you would have with traditional nail polish. You shouldn't have any trouble finding powder shades to replace your favorite lacquers.
What are the Benefits of Powder Dip Nails
On top of having stunningly polished nails for weeks, there are many great benefits to Powder Dip Nails over other nail services. There is no curing with UV lights. Once you finish your powder dip nails with a layer of topcoat, you don't have to cure your nails with harmful UV lights as is the case with gel polish. When done properly by a professional, you can expect your nails to remain chip-free for up to a month.
