What Are Dip Nails? And Why I Love OPI's Powder Perfection
When I first tried OPI’s Powder Perfection Dipping Powders, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, after the first application, I knew immediately that this would be my new, go-to alternative to a gel manicure. I was so fascinated by the application process and how easy it was to apply. When I learned that it adds strength and durability to your nails, I knew this new system was totally for me. My nails are very delicate and break very easily, so having long nails is never practical for me. Powder Perfection looks much thicker; however, it doesn’t feel heavier on the nails.
Dip nails, or more generally, dipping powders are a unique application where the nail is dipped into a colored acrylic powder multiple times, then cured with an activator, and finished with a topcoat. If you like a durable and long-lasting nail, then sign yourself up for a dipping powder service with your favorite nail professional.
It’s easier and quicker to apply compared to traditional acrylic systems. How long do dip nails last? OPI Powder Perfection provides added strength and durability for up to 2+ weeks of wear and shine. The best part of Dipping Powders is that it is an odor-free acrylic system, which is amazing. The end result is similar to a gel-like shine without the need to cure under a light. OPI Powder Perfection manicures are shade-matched in several of your favorite iconic OPI shades like Bubble Bath, Strawberry Margarita and You're Such a Budapest. You can also create French manicures and other fun nail art looks with Dipping Powders.
If you're like me and have nails that are weak and tend to break easily, I definitely recommend OPI's new Powder Perfection Dipping Powders! Ask your nail tech next time you're in the salon, I promise you'll love them as much as I do.
