Dipping nails is a new manicure trend that is taking the nail industry by storm. Its been around for about 5 years, but it has only become popular in the past year or so. Dipping nails is the process of applying a colored powder on your natural nails and dipping them in a clear liquid called monomer. Monomer is what helps the colored dip powder adhere to your natural nail, without chipping or breaking. Unlike other manicures, dip powders are light weight and don’t require any UV lamps during application. The process of applying dip powder is very simple and can be done by anyone at home.
In this blog we will go over the differences between gel and acrylic nails, everything you need to know about dip powder nails, how to apply them and how they benefit you.
Gel vs Acrylic Nails
New to the world of dip powder manicures? We’re here to break down everything you need to know about this new-to-the-scene nail technique.
Dip powder is the newest and hottest nail trend that gives your nails a gorgeous and long-lasting manicure sans UV light, odor, and the potential dangers of gel. In fact, dip powder has been proven to be more gentle on your nails than both acrylics and gels.
Dip powder is exactly what it sounds like: a powdered pigment that is “dipped” into a liquid adhesive base. This process creates a thickened layer of polish that adheres to your nails, resulting in an ultra-glossy and long-lasting manicure.
I am going to tell you all about dipping nails. Dipping nails have been around for years and I am going to explain to you how it works, what you need, and share with you a few cool videos that will help you understand better.
I have been seeing so much lately about it and I think it’s great! So many people are looking for an alternative to acrylics and this is a good way to go. With the current pandemic we are in right now making it hard on our salons and nail techs, people are having to do their own nails.
Dipping Powder takes out the need for UV lights and the monomer used in other systems. It’s actually two products in one! You get the strength of acrylics but without the use of a UV light or monomer/liquid. It’s very easy to apply as well and can be done at home by yourself.
Let’s get into the details:
What is Dipping Powder?
Dipping Powder is a combination of gel polish technology combined with acrylic powder. The end result is a strong nail that does not require any UV light or monomer/liquid used in other systems.

The Process: Dipping Powder Nail
What is dipping nails? Dipping nails is a method of applying colored powder to finger nails and toe nails that do not require the use of harmful UV lights to dry. The color powders come in an array of colors and are a healthy alternative to traditional gel or acrylic nail enhancements.
Dip powders have become quite popular in the past few years. This type of manicure, which requires no UV light, looks very natural and feels lightweight on your nails. Plus, they last longer than gel manicures and can be applied faster than traditional acrylics. The best part? They’re less damaging to your nails!
How does it work?
Dipping powder is composed of a base coat, a color coat, and then a sealant coat which is dried under UVA light for 15 seconds between each coat, eliminating the need for harsh UV rays.
Dipping nails are taking the nail industry by storm! In case you haven’t heard of this amazing alternative to gels and acrylics, let me explain. Dipping powder is a fast growing nail enhancement that is odorless, lightweight and it can last up to 3 weeks on natural nails. It’s also incredibly durable and gives your nails a beautiful smooth finish.
It’s great for women who want to grow their nails but get frustrated when their natural nails break or become damaged from acrylics or gel polish. In addition, it requires no light curing and there is less risk of damaging your natural nail bed because the product is applied in thin layers.
Dipping powder is a great way to not only protect your natural nails but also make them look fabulous!
How Does It Work?
The dipping powder process starts with prepping the nails like you would before applying regular polish (think base coat, polish and topcoat).
