Doonails Dipping Powder - Quick Overview

Doonails Dipping Powder - Quick Reference.

Acrylic nails and gel are outdated. Dip powder nails are the latest trend and currently the most popular way to manicure one's nails. The dip powder manicure is considerably different from the manicures you are used to. Unlike other manicures, it not only enhances the glam of your nails but also protects them and bewitches with a durability of 4+ weeks.

To give you a better idea of how a dip powder manicure is done and how quick and easy it is to apply, here's a quick rundown of the whole process:

How to apply the Doonails dip powder yourself.

Before you begin, you should organize your equipment. You will need the following utensils to perform the Dipping Powder manicure at home:
All products are included in our Doonails Dipping Powder Kit - Professional included.

- Cuticle pusher

- File

- Nail Brush

- Base Coat

- Activator

- Colored powder (4 different colored powders are included in the kit)

  1. Prepare your nails

Clean your nails and use a cuticle pusher to push back the cuticles. Polish and file your nails.

  1. Disinfect your nails
  1. Apply base coat

Apply a thin layer of base coat to your nails. Start at the point just above the cuticle and move towards the edge of the nail.

  1. Apply Base Powder

Dip your finger into the container of powder (Base Powder) and roll it around for a few seconds. Take your finger out and tap it lightly to remove the powder. Let it dry for a second before removing the excess powder with a brush.

  1. Apply base coat and color powder

Apply another coat of base coat to the nail and dip it in the color powder of your choice. Repeat the step if you want a more intense color result.

  1. Apply the activator

Apply the activator to your nails just so and leave it on for 2 minutes.

  1. File your nails

File your nail surface to the desired thickness and your nail to the preferred shape after applying the Activator. Reapply the Activator.

  1. Apply the Top Coat

Once you have used the activator, apply the top coat. Let it dry again for 2 minutes and repeat the process for the final finish.

Care of the dip powder nails

To make your dip powder manicure last as long as possible and keep the color result, we have some tips for you:

  1. Do not use polish on your cuticles. This could lift the polish and make it much more prone to chipping.
  2. Use cool air to dry the powder.
  3. Avoid using hand sanitizer as it could dry out the skin and damage the top layer of the manicure. Instead, wash your hands with soap or even a cleanser.
  4. Wear gloves when using caustic chemicals like cleansers.
  5. Use the nail and cuticle oil regularly

Remove dip powder nails at home

Removing dip powder manicure is very easy and quick. Use the Doonails Dipping Powder Remover Kit and follow the steps mentioned for safe removal.

  1. Use a nail file to roughen/file off the shiny top coat. Do this thoroughly on each nail.
  2. Insert your fingers into the remover pads.
  3. Fix the pads with the remover clip on each finger for a secure hold.
  4. Leave them on for about 20 minutes.
  5. Now you can peel off the remnants of the pad by using a rubbing motion. You can use the cuticle pusher to scrape away the excess powder.
  6. Repeat steps 2-3 and leave the pads on for 10 minutes.
