  • How to Apply a Color Mani

    color dip 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.

    PRO TIP:

    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. Be sure to always paint and immediately dip one nail at a time before moving on to the next finger. This will prevent Step 2 Base from drying out and allow for more powder to adhere to the nail.

    • Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.
    • Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond to all fingernails

    PRO TIP: Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear!

    Step 2
    • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base to the entire nail surface, stroking out towards the tip of the nail

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

    Step 3
    • Quickly dip the nail at a 45-degree angle into the choice of acrylic color powder coating the entire nail bed
    • Tap finger to rid of loose powder in between nails

    PRO TIP: Be sure to always paint and immediately dip one nail at a time before moving on to the next finger. This will prevent Step 2 Base from drying out and allow for more powder to adhere to the nail.

    Step 4
    • Repeat for more coverage

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

    Step 5
    • Apply another thin coat of Base to the entire nail surface
    • Quickly dip the entire nail surface into Base & Finish Essential Acrylic Powder, sealing all layers of powder

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

    Step 6
    • Apply a coat of Step 3 Activator to harden the blend of powder & liquid
    • Allow two minutes for Activator to dry completely
    Step 7
    • When the blend of powder and liquid has hardened, file nails to the desired shape
    • Use a our coarse grit buffer to even out the preferred thickness of the nails, then use the 240 grit buffer to smooth the nail surface
    Step 8
    • Wash hands and nails thoroughly or wipe with alcohol
    Step 9
    • Apply a coat of Step 3 Activator to harden the blend of powder & liquid
    • Allow two minutes for Activator to dry completely
    Step 10
    • Apply a coat of Sealer in quick thin strokes
    • Allow 3 minutes for nails to dry

    PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

    Step 11
    • Apply a coat of Sealer in quick thin strokes
    • Allow 3 minutes for nails to dry
