1. What are dip powder nails?

Dip powder nails are somewhere between a regular mani and a fake acrylic nail. Instead of using UV rays to seal in your polish, the color comes from a pigmented powder. Between base coats and a sealant, you dip your nails into a little jar of your chosen color (SNS and Revel are the two most popular and vetted manufacturers) for a mani that could last three to four weeks.

Dip manicures are like a hybrid between a manicure and fake nails, and can last three to four weeks. Compared to typical gel or acrylic nails, dip manicures are thinner, and require less filing and special tools. They have a more natural look, are less likely to lift, and are easier to apply. Furthermore, no odorous liquid monomer or UV light is needed.You can seal up broken or split nails with this lightweight overlay of powder and resin

2. Are dip powder nails safe?

Now, for the other shoe to drop: Dipping powder isn't exactly the healthiest choice you can make for your nails. Popular nail salons like Vanity Projects and Van Court won't include the technique on their menus.

While more brands, like OPI, now offer options for dip powder manicures, if your salon doesn't use a credited manufacturer, it could contain dangerous ingredients. "Some cheaper dip powders can contain MMD, which is extremely harmful to natural nails and banned in NYC," says Vanity Projects' Ariel Zuniga. Ruth Kallens, founder and parter at Van Court, says, "Dip powders are acrylic. I don't use acrylic because the removal process is so detrimental to your nail plate."

3. How do you remove dip powder nails?

Just like gels or acrylics, removing a dip powder manicure requires more time and patience than swiping remover on a cotton ball. Of course, the best way to remove them is to go back to your nail tech; otherwise you risk damaging and weakening your nails.

And no matter if you remove them at home or at the salon, you should try to give your nails some downtime in between to prevent them from breaking or becoming brittle.
