A manicure that lasts a full two weeks can sometimes seem like a miracle. That’s why when dip powder nails hit the scene, they sounded like a godsend. A mani that’s supposedly easy to DIY and lasts longer than gel nail polish?
All of my swatches are done over my natural nail . The Dip Powders are super fine acrylic powders – finer than the traditional acrylic powders used in L&P systems. This makes them super easy to use with little filing after application. I did inquire about the powders themselves, and they are standard acrylic powders – just finer.
For full coverage, apply a second thin, even base coat to each nail again. Repeat the process one more time for a second world of beer hilton head coat and brush of the excess powder. We used a loose brush to wipe away excess powder from our nails and hands.
Since the powders are applied with resin, this acrylic overlay removes quicker than traditional acrylic enhancements. To remove, I filed the surface with a 180 grit file to remove the Tack-Free Gel Top Coat and a little bit of the bulk from the enhancement. I then soaked in a double bowl with pure acetone for about 30 minutes.
Create a French manicure that will last and last with this kit from Revel. This nail kit is filled with gorgeous, moody hues including black, brown, gray, and plum. At the other end of the spectrum, it’s got a shimmering silver and bright white to create French tips. Polish with a sealant and your nails will be instantly dry.
However after about 1 minute of “drying” time, my nails were completely done and I was able to go about my day. As I have gotten more practice with the system I was able to shave off about 10 minutes so I can easily finish my nails in under 30 minutes. I would say the longest part for me is actually the prep with cleaning up my cuticles and shaping my nails.
