How to Apply Dip Powder Polish

Ready to ditch your plain old polish for ultra glossy, better-than-gel nails?

Here's a step by step guide for applying your polish:

Starting Pro Tips: 

Powders may settle or become dense sitting overtime & can create uneven dipping results. For seamless dipping, loosen powders by shaking jars while closed or stir with a clean utensil prior to use.

Step 1: Prep nails

Cut, shape, and buff your nails to your liking. Wash your hands.

Step 2: Apply a thin coat of the base layer to the entire nail surface

Avoid getting the product onto your cuticles. Powder will stick wherever the base layer is applied.

Step 3: Quickly dip the nail at a 45 degree angle into the powder, coating the entire nail bed

Step 4: Remove any loose color dipping powder

Hold your finger straight down and gently tap. It may be helpful to use a clean brush to very lightly remove excess powder.

** [Important] Step 7: Use a buffer or file to even out the preferred thickness and sand down/smooth the nail surface. **

Buffing down the nail before applying the top coat will give you a shiny finish. If you don't buff or file, you'll get a matte finish.
