The dip powder technique or the SNS nails involves applying or “dipping” the nails into a durable and colorful powder. The method has gained immense popularity since it can last for almost a month, longer than standard gel or acrylic manicures.
Before any sort of treatment takes place, the nails need a thorough cleaning to get a good foundation. Prepare the nails by gently scrubbing the nail plates to remove any dirt under the nails or nail polish.
Apply a base coat to every nail. It is best to do one nail at a time. While the nails are wet, dip the nails in the powder. Depending on the desired color intensity, we can repeat the process a couple of times.
The last step is to apply an activator and a top coat. Space out your coatings and use the activator first. Once the nails are dry, add the final top-coat layer.
