Step-by-Step: Applying Dipping Powder Your First Time

Applying nail polish can sometimes be a hassle: long waits for it to dry, quick flaking and frequent retouching. Fortunately, there is a solution that has changed the nail world: dipping powder! If you've never heard of dipping powder or never had the courage to try it yourself, you've come to the right place. With Glowdip's range of dipping powders, you can now get a salon-quality manicure without leaving the comfort of your home. Let's dive into the step-by-step guide!

1. Preparation is important

The starting point of any beautiful manicure is good preparation. This means starting with nails that are completely clean and dry. Take the time to thoroughly remove any old nail polish, as well as any oil or dirt that may be on your nails. Next, grab a high-quality nail file, such as the one from the Glowdip starter kit. Use this to carefully file your nails, concentrating on achieving your ideal nail shape. Also, push back the cuticles to create a nice surface for dipping later.

2. Base Coat Application

The base coat is not just another step; it is the bridge between your natural nail and the dipping powder. This layer serves several purposes: it protects your natural nails and ensures optimal adhesion of the dipping powder. For best results, apply a thin, even layer of the Glowdip Base Coat, taking care to avoid the skin around your nails, especially the cuticles.

3. Dive into the Dipping Powder

Now comes the fun part: choosing color! With the wide assortment of Glowdip colors, you're sure to find something to match your mood or outfit. Once you've selected your color, gently dip your nail into the powder pot. Take it out and gently tap to get rid of excess powder. A handy trick for the professionals among us: hold your finger at a 45-degree angle while dipping for even application.
