    How To Apply A Vertical Ombre Mani
    Here's our take on one of the most popularly requested nail designs for easy nail art! 💖 💅 A step by step process on how to apply vertical ombre dip powder nails by DipWell Nails
    PRO TIP:

    Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

    Step 1
    • Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond to all fingernails
    Step 2
    • Paint a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip entire finger at an angle into color acrylic of choice
    • Tap finger to rid of loose powder and use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder

    PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base if applied

    Step 3
    • Using a fluffy brush, the shape being comparable to an eyeshadow brush, dab the darker color acrylic onto the tip of the nail plate
    • Brush & dab the powder in an up-down motion

    PRO TIP: The pigment from the acrylic powder will transfer onto the nail plate without increasing the amount of acrylic powder on the nail

    Step 4
    • Paint a second coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip tip of finger at an angle into the lighter color powder of choice
    Step 5
    • Repeat for more coverage

    PRO TIP: Avoid getting the Step 2 Base onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base if applied

    Step 6
    • Carefully paint a layer of Step 2 Base onto the nail plate
    • Immediately dip into Base & Finish to seal powder pigments

    PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base if applied

    Step 7
    • Apply Step 3 Activator onto the nail and allow a few minutes for powder to harden
    • Then use our coarse grit buffer to even out the preferred thickness of the nails and the 240 grit buffer to smooth the nail surface
    Step 8
    • Wash hands and nails thoroughly or wipe with alcohol

    PRO TIP: Make sure nails are completely dry before moving to the next step!

    Step 9
    • Apply another coat of Activator and allow 3-4 minutes for Activator to completely dry
    Step 10
    • Apply a coat of Sealer in quick thin strokes
    • Allow 3 minutes for nails to dry
  • Repeat for super shiny nails
  • PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.
