Dip Powder Nail Polish Is The Best Thing To Happen To Your Fingertips

Want to take your nail game to the next level? Consider trying the next big nail trend — nail dipping. Boasting longer wear and simple application, powder nail polish is any beauty guru’s next big thing.

Nail trends seem to come and go, but there are a few that change the nail game completely, and we seriously want to give them a try. One of those is the nail dipping process that is taking social media by storm, and the results are actually amazing.

Now, what makes this process so dang cool? Well, powder nail polish is seemingly safer, and it’s making a comeback because of its simplicity. According to Nails Magazine, the nail polish powder system requires fewer tools, so no fancy lamps or fans are required. And though the process may seem repetitive — as nails need to be dipped multiple times to get the brightest possible color — it is geared toward beginners who do not have the equipment necessary for gel polish or acrylic nails.

Even more, dip powder nails last four to six weeks, while traditional acrylics last about three weeks, a massive plus for any nail guru. And because there is no primer required — which is occasionally acid-based — there is less damage to the nail bed itself. Some powders even boast the benefits of calcium and Vitamin E.

Because the colored dip powders are highly pigmented, it makes getting creative with the color and design super easy. Check out a few of the uber cool powder nail polish results below.

Just like with traditional acrylics, soaking in acetone will take the powdered polish right off. Or, as YouTuber Simply Nailogical recommends, you can use a peel-off base coat before applying the powder polish for an easy-off method — no remover product required.
