Dip Powder Manicures have officially landed at The Daily Details. We are SO excited to roll out this new alternative to natural nail enhancements!
New to Dip? We break down all the details of what Dip Powder is, application process, pricing, etc., below:
Q: So, what is Dip Powder?
A: Dip powder is an acrylic overlay that provides stronger, lightweight and natural long-lasting nails that won’t damage the nail bed. Think of it as the level of staying power in-between gel polish and acrylic nails. Other popular terms for dip powder include “SNS” and “Slick Pour”.
Q: How is it applied?
A: Dip powder uses a unique technology that is different from the technology found in acrylic enhancement products. Although both systems have similar polymer powders, dip powder does not use a liquid monomer initiator found in acrylic systems. Instead, a liquid resin or base coat is used for adhesion. Unlike gel polish, it does not require LED or UV light to cure. Dip powder uses an Activator to accelerate the curing of the Base Coat and powders, and initiate the reaction with the Top Coat. This makes dip powder application ideal for protective overlays on natural nails.
