How to Apply Color Dip Powder | DipWell Nails

 

Does your nail polish ever chip when you're doing absolutely nothing? Yeah, same. Welp, we're here to show you the way to super gorgeous, super long-lasting nails with DipWell Nail Powder. Here's how you can ditch plain old polish for ultra glossy gel-like nails, but like without the light.

Here, we're featuring color powder CL9.

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 to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear

a: Push back cuticles

Product Aftercare Pro Tips

  • To extend product life, be sure to clean the neck & rim of bottles with alcohol immediately after dipping a full set of nails. Tighten caps & store in a cool environment away from heat & direct sunlight. Without proper care, Step 2 Base and Step 4 Sealer may become difficult to open.
  • Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

    I have always been into doing my own nails. I was to the point of painting them up to 3x a week since they would chip so often. I bought the starter kit and am in love! So easy to do on your own and lasts such a long time without any chips! The perfect kit for at home salon nails!

    Just tried this today, I think I’m in mad love!! I have had my nails dipped at a salon many times and it seemed easy so I wanted to try it myself. Got my starter kit yesterday, read all instructions and did my own set today. Not totally perfect but I will improve with practice. LOVE the ease of using this product!

    This is one of the best products out there! Easy to follow steps, above and beyond customer service I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with! Just re-applied to repair major lines. Easy Peasy! I highly recommend this to anyone who is tired of paying salon prices and being treated rude!
