Dip powder nails are somewhat in the middle of gel and acrylic nails.
The dip powder process involves the technician brushing a generous amount of dip powder on the nails or dips them into colored powder to achieve a long-lasting effect. Unlike gel nails, there’s no need to harden dip powder nails with UV lights—dip powder nails dry quickly on their own.
A dip manicure is really the same thing as dip powder nails. However, in addition to dipping your nails in finely-milled powder, a dip manicure might include extra elements like a scrub or lotion. Dip manicures are a quick way to add color to your nails without having to spend hours painting them.
On the average, dip powder nails can last as long as one month. Most people consider taking them out when the polish starts to chip—this happens around two weeks after the manicure. In some cases, dip powder manicures last up to three months.
The specific cost of a dip powder nail appointment depends on where you’re getting your nails done. On average, you can expect an appointment to cost between $20 and $50. Typically, a tip is added to the manicure cost, so budget for an additional 20% charge.
Dip powder manicures require two separate appointments. First, you’ll need a pedicure at your local salon to remove any dead skin cells from your cuticles. Then, you’ll head back to the salon to apply the dip powder.
Before application, the manicurist will apply antiseptic spray or some other sanitizer to remove any germs. Then, they will apply some clear powder, resin and colored powder for thickness. Finally, they’d add the activator and apply the top coat. It takes about 30 minutes for the dip powder to dry, so plan accordingly.
The best time to visit the salon is during the week because weekends are usually booked solid. If you have a few extra minutes, polish the nails while you wait for your appointment. Your salon will probably suggest waiting a minimum of 24 hours after applying the powder so that it stays in.
After fixing dip powder nails, there are a few things you should do if you want them to last longer.
– Be sure to reapply the top coat to your nails after a few days.
– Do not bite your nails or scrape the polish.
– Don’t rub any polish on your nails.
– Avoid using hand sanitizers as they can ruin the top layer of your dip powder manicure.
