Hi lovely readers! As you know, I’m always looking for do-it-yourself beauty technics that I can try out and share with you.  Today I share with you a DIY Dipping Powder Manicure Tutorial. What is a Dipping Powder Manicure? Just the latest crazy is nail art!!! It is quickly replacing the super popular gel manicure.  Recently a friend of mine got a dipping powder manicure at the local nail salon and let me tell you it was fabulous. Dipping Powder has been around for a while in the nail industry. Most commonly dipping powders were used in the application of a full set of nail tips, and the powders would only come in light pink, white or clear.  Somehow dipping powder manufacturers have figured out a way to add color to the powders making them the ultimate alternative for nail polish.  These powders are just as strong as acrylic and last just as long! 


Love this technic #dippingpowder #nailart @revelnail

I was lucky enough to receive a dipping powder nail kit.  The kit includes everything you need to get started. 

The kit contains the following items:

1) 15 ml (or 0.5 OZ) of Step #1 Prep

2) 15 ml (or 0.5 OZ) of Step #2 Probase

3) 15 ml (or 0.5 OZ) of Step #3 Activator

4) 15 ml (or 0.5 OZ) of Step #4 Finish Gel

5) 15 ml (or 0.5 OZ) of Brush Softener

6) One (1) 2 OZ Dip Powder Jar – Please select your color

Kits start at about $49 (well worth the money!!) after just two applications your kit is paid for.  Most of these dip powder applications cost around $25-30 at nail salons.  There is a second kit for French manicure that I think is awesome!


I know what you are thinking – Dalba how in the world am I going to apply this on my own nails? Check out my video tutorial below. I found the application is very easy. If you know how to paint your nails with regular polish you will find this easy as well! 

I also wanted to share with you pictures of a full set of tips that I applied using dipping powder. Check them out below!
