Who doesn’t like to get their nails done and who doesn’t like to keep their nails healthy along the way?! This new nail trend is taking the nail industry by storm. The powdered nail or “dipping” nail method was created as a less damaging alternative to acrylic nails. It almost resembles magical dusts as it transforms to an even coat of paint.
The name itself explains the process. A base coat is applied first and then the nail is dipped into a powder. The process is repeated a couple of times depending on how many coats you want. Then, the rough, powdery layers are transformed into a smooth, glossy finish once a sealant is applied. Not only are the dipping powders quick and convenient, but they also last up to three weeks and last longer than gel nails! Your nails beneath will be just fine.
On top of everything else, this powdered take on a salon trip is being called the safest way to get nails done now. Words such as “safe” “organic” and “natural” are being tagged to this method. The powders don’t pose any inhalation threats and no possible skin damage from the UV lamp because it dries instantly! So if your anything like me, and always seems to mess up a nail almost immediately after leaving the salon, I’d say this is a suitable method to at least try. Plus, the faster your nails are done, the quicker you get to show them off to the world.
