be honest, what’s the last thing you put on your nails? probably nail polish.
but that’s not really a surprise is it? there have been a lot of changes in the world of manicures over the past few years, but we haven’t seen much innovation in terms of the actual product we put on our nails. until now that is.
enter powder nail polish. no need for all sorts of fancy equipment or anything either, just a few steps and your nails are good to go. not only that but they are stronger than they would be with regular polish, and they look awesome too.
what the deuce?
so yeah, powder nail polish is a thing now and it’s pretty awesome. if you were wondering how this works then here is some info from the people who make it:
“powders are applied in layers over base coat and sealant giving gel-like strength with no dry time.”
yeah, i don’t get most of that either but basically what it means is that you apply it in a similar way to normal nail polish but without having to wait around for hours while it dries.
As someone who’s been wearing nail polish since childhood, I’ve watched the industry evolve over the years. From jelly sandals to neon scrunchies, every trend has its time. Yet one thing that has remained a constant is a bottle of nail polish.
But this is all about to change with the introduction of powder nail polish, which is taking over the beauty world by storm. The process starts with applying a base coat and curing it under an LED lamp for two minutes. Then, you dip your finger into a jar of powder and tap off any excess product before curing it for another two minutes. Once you’ve repeated these steps twice, you brush on a top coat and cure it for another two minutes.
The result is a chip-free manicure that can last up to three weeks. Plus, there are countless color options to choose from — white, black, blue and even holographic shades are available.
Not only are powder manicures easier to apply than traditional nail polish, they’re also easier to take off too! So be honest, what’s the last thing you put on your nails? Probably nail polish. But if you want to do something different this time around (and already have an LED
Be honest, what’s the last thing you put on your nails? Probably nail polish. Between a whack-a-doodle color palette (shout out to Essie), a variety of finishes (I’m matte ‘til I die), and the fact that it’s so easy to switch up your look, it’s no surprise that nail polish is one of our most beloved beauty products. But there’s a new product on the market that we think is about to give nail polish a run for its money: powder nail polish.
It looks like eyeshadow and goes on like acrylic nails, but trust us, there’s nothing else like it. Get ready to geek out over this super cool nail trend.
Nail tech and entrepreneur, Sarah Waite, is looking to change that with her new product, Powder Perfect. It’s a moon dust-like powder that’s applied to your nails like nail polish, but instead of the messy liquid formula, it’s mess free.
“It is a powder that needs no light, no heat and no solvents,” she tells me. “You paint it on like regular polish (using our special base) and then you dip your nails in the powder.”
The powder is applied in layers until you reach the desired opacity. The best part? It stays on for up to three weeks because “it bonds to your nails through osmosis.”
You can apply this magic dust over acrylic or natural nail beds. You can also remove it by soaking your hands in acetone for about 10 minutes.
The powder nail polish is a step above regular nail polish. It is a gel-like substance that comes in a little container and then you brush it on your finger nails.
The polish hardens when exposed to UV light. Nail salons have UV lights all over the place, so don’t expect to be able to do this at home.
My manicure lasted two weeks (and still looked great after two weeks). And my hands (and nails) look great! No chipping at all.
Powder nail polishes are the latest craze in the beauty industry. They’re a little different from traditional nail polish though because they don’t require any drying time, you simply paint them on and dip your finger into the powdery substance to apply the polish.
Powder nail polishes are supposed to last for about a week, but you can extend the life of your manicure by applying a clear top coat over it to keep it from chipping. Also, since they don’t require any drying time, you can use them while on-the-go!
