We take a look at what you need to start using the Dip Powder System
Are you tired of noticing or looking down at your worn-out, (slightly) neglected, chipped or cracked nails that keep on getting caught on things? Many of us can relate. We know how much we all miss our manicured nails. With the ongoing lockdown restrictions across Australia, particularly in Melbourne and Sydney, it’s been impossible to visit your favourite, go-to salon.
Now is a better time than any to get to know the Dip Powder system. You can learn how to apply your own dip nail manicure, with amazing results.
It’s one of the very reasons that we decided to start DIPD Nails, so everyone could enjoy that salon experience we’re all missing and get that professional dip manicure at the comfort of your own home. Yes, the same sleek salon manicure, on-demand in your home.
The process involves painting on a base coat, then dipping your entire nail into your dip powder, repeating the process as necessary to achieve the correct colour, buffing to shape the nail, and finishing with a topcoat. It’s a fun and achievable process which is what makes it the ultimate DIY at home mani system that lasts.
Before you begin, it’s good to know about the benefits of the Dip Powder system. You may have heard of SNS. Well SNS, the brand, is essentially what many women may know of or refer to as the Dip Powder. Dip powder is long-lasting, lasting up to three weeks, and doesn’t require an LED light for curing as you would with Gel Nails.
The best dip nail kit to get you started is a Starter Kit (no pun intended). All the items in your kit must include all the essentials. And of course, a pot of your selected dip powder colour. Your very first dip nail kit should be complete with all the tools you need to create your dip manicure, as well as, your dip powder colour(s).
So, what does the best dip nail kit include?
Or, what should it include for that matter? Let’s take a look.
Below, I’ve listed all the items that come with your very own DIPD Starter Kit. Your kit includes:
- 1 x Dip powder (your choice of colour)
- Primer liquid
- Basecoat resin
- Activator liquid
- Topcoat resin
- Crescent professional nail file
- White block buffer and cuticle stick
- Kabuki dust brush
Your favourite dip powder colours
Ladies, you choose which dip powder colour you like. Usually, it’s more than one that you fancy, so you may want to select individual colour powders to add to your kit. Don’t forget to check out our value bundles, we’ve specially curated colour combinations that our customers love.
This may vary with other brands, so the items included may be different to what they have in their kits. At DIPD, we’ve carefully selected each item to ensure you have what you need to get started and be dipping like a pro.
Aside from the Starter Kit, there is a range of other kits that you may fancy depending on what you need and how far along you are on your DIPD journey. You’ll find a complete range of our nail kits here, there’s plenty to choose from.
Remember, you’ve got this!
Many women love the dip powder manicure because they’re obsessed with the amazing results they get and are super proud of. They also understand that practice makes perfect.
