Dip nail colors

Dip nail colors DEFAULT

“Some cheaper dip powders can contain MMD, which is extremely harmful to natural nails and banned in NYC,” says Vanity Projects' Ariel Zuniga. 

Dip powder is closely related to acrylic powder, and both require a removal process that is tough on your nails. Dip powder, however, doesn't use any acrylic nail glue, which can include questionable chemicals. Dip powder also uses thinner layers, which could help reduce your chance of getting an infection or damaging your nail beds. 

How do dip powder nails work?

Directions will vary slightly by kit, but the process of applying dip powder nails is generally something like this:

  1. Apply a base coat to your nail.

  2. Dip your wet nail into a jar of powder.

  3. Tap and brush off excess powder from your nail.

  4. Repeat the dipping and brushing until you achieve your desired color and opacity.

  5. Polish with a sealant and your nails will be instantly dry.

Here, beauty blogger Cristine of Simply Nailogical gives a helpful tutorial on how to do a dip nail manicure at home. 

Should you try dip powder nails?

If you're already fond of more permanent mani solutions, Marton contends that there's no reason you shouldn't give dip powder a shot. “They're equally healthy to gels and basic acrylics that are already out,” she says. Just make sure you're checking packaging and asking your manicurist what brand they're using. 

Another thing to consider is how you like the finish of your nails. Gel manicures look more like traditional nail polish on—meaning they work better for nail art designs—while dip nails tend to look a little thicker on your nail and lend themselves well to solid colors and ombré finishes.

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. “There's no easy way to remove dip powder nails quickly,” says Zuniga. “We recommend using an electric file and soaking off the remaining product with acetone,” i.e., similar to gel nail removal. Of course, the best way to remove them is to go back to your nail tech; otherwise you risk damaging and weakening your nails. If you are planning on removing dip powder nails at home, though, look to our step-by-step dip nail removal guide to ensure the least damage possible.

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. Zuniga's advice? Invest in some good nail after-care products to rehydrate your nails and keep your cuticles moisturized. A few of our favorites include Essie's Apricot Cuticle Oil and Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Strengthener.

Our 25 Favorite Dip Powder Nail Color Ideas

There's something particularly frustrating about discovering a chipped nail after recently having had a manicure. (Once it happens, you know it's only downhill from there.) And as much as we love gel manicures, the term "no-chip" is occasionally a misnomer.

That's why dip powder manicures—also known as SNS manicures—have changed the game. While SNS manicures were technically "invented" in 1990, the technique didn't enter the public lexicon until years later. (And you yourself may not have found out about them until recently.)

Dip powder manicures are known for their durability and resistance to chipping. The technique involves literally dipping the nails into colored powder, while brushing on layers of bonder as an adhesive for the powder, before using a clear sealant on top. They work for both natural nails and extended ones.

And while you might think the nail polish colors lined up in the nail salon are tempting, the options you'll find for dip powder span the color spectrum, too—and more importantly, they'll likely last twice as long on your nails. Below, find 20 dip powder nail color ideas that'll inspire you to dive into dip.

01of 25

Blank Slate

There's nothing fresher than soft white nails, year-round. Plus, with dip manicures, lighter hues tend to look more saturated—aka, you won't have to worry about your nail color peeking through a sheer, light shade like white.

02of 25

Put it in Neutral

The perfect swath of neutrals.

03of 25

Minty Green

Pick a bold hue like this minty green that'll shine through perfectly with dip powder, which usually lends itself to more saturated, pigmented hues.

04of 25

Lavender Dip

This mani makes us think of a lavender cream latte.

05of 25

Cobalt Blue Dip

Fewer shades are more striking than cobalt.

06of 25

French Ombré

Two different shades create a cool, flawless ombré. It's like a modern update on a French manicure, if you will.

07of 25

Ocean Vibes

Don't be afraid to mix and match colors: You can achieve these nautical-feeling nails with different shades of blue, teal, and green.

08of 25

Pink Gradient

This pinky nude gradient is perfect all year 'round.

09of 25

Glitter Dip

Most dip salons carry a number of glitter hues, so the exact color choice is yours.

10of 25

Extra Sparkly

Feeling sparkly? Say "yes" to bold, allover sparkle—the process is the same, just with a sparkle-infused dip powder formula rather than a solid hue or subtly glitter one. Count us in.

11of 25

Deep Coral Dip

This coral shade flatters every skin tone.

12of 25

Light Pink With Glitter Accent

Dip powder permits creative nail ideas, too, so you definitely won't miss polish or gel—and we love this subtle light pink manicure with a slightly sparkly accent nail.

13of 25

Classic Black

Of course, there's nothing quite like a classic black shade—especially when it looks this shiny and lustrous, thanks to the glossy sealant on top.

14of 25

Hot Tamale

Yes, this color is literally called "Hot Tamale"—and if you have a hankering for an ultra-bright hue that works for every skin tone and season, we think we've found the one for you.

15of 25

French Gradient

Take the pinks and whites of a traditional French and turn them into a gradient across all five nails with this look.

16of 25

Burnt Orange Dip

Suitable year 'round, but perfect for fall.

17of 25

Copper Shimmer

A dip powder shade with some slight shimmer will have your nails looking chic and subtle—rather than overly sparkly.

18of 25

Neutral Vibes

We always love earth tone-inspired nails—and this neutral, "sand dune" shade is our new favorite.

19of 25

Sunshine State

These nail color is sunshine in a bottle.

20of 25

Stark White

A stark white that you won't have to worry about sheerness with? Yes, please. The multiple layers of dip powder prevent those pesky "I-didn't-think-this-color-would-be-so-faint" moments.

21of 25

Pretty in Pink

Calling all girly girls: Pick varying shades of pink for a "monochrome" manicure you'll be showing off at every turn.

22of 25

Luxe Lavender

Embrace a chic pastel shade—like luxe lavender—knowing the pigmentation with a dip manicure will come out perfectly.

23of 25

Cool Cobalt

As far as we're concerned, you can't go wrong with an eye-catching electric blue.

24of 25

Purple Matte

Depending on the sealant you use, you can go for a glossy, lustrous finish, or a matte one. Here, we think the matte finish complements the purple shade and acrylic extensions perfectly.

25of 25

Glittery Gray

Alternate between a glitter powder and a solid one for a monochrome manicure that still feels fresh and exciting.

I'm an acrylic full-set girl through and through. Every two to three weeks, I march into my local nail salon with a collection of nail inspiration pictures, ready for my nail tech and I to create magic. But, after spending hundreds of dollars each month on full sets and gel manicures, my love affair with the services left me with cracked, fragile nails.

Then, a co-worker mentioned dip powder nails to me. As a self-professed beauty lover, I pride myself on staying on top of the latest fads in the makeup, hair, and nail world but I had to admit defeat—I never heard of the trend and was eager to find out what it entailed.

I was riddled with questions, mainly, "Is it safe for my nails?" which were in serious recovery mode post-acrylic. I Googled the best salons in New York City that offered the procedure, and took a trip down to Snow Fairy Nail Spa to see what the hype was all about.

To start, Anna, one of the nail technicians in the salon, removed all nail polish from my nail using acetone before pulling out her electric buffing machine to smooth out any rugged areas on my nail and create a clean canvas for the powder to stick to. After cutting and shaping my nail—I opted for an oval shape instead of my usual squoval—and pushing back my cuticles, it was time for the fun to begin. Anna brushed on a primer, then swiped on a clear polish. While there were an array of powder colors to choose from (pink, nude, purple, etc.) my heart was set on the pale orange shade I saw upon arriving at the salon so I chose to go with that.

To my surprise, the dip powder manicure process was fairly simple: Anna dipped each finger into the clear, finely-milled powder, brushed off the excess powder, set it with a protective clear polish and repeated these steps until my nail was fully coated and hardened. After applying OPI’s Freedom of Peach, Anna sealed each nail with a gel top coat and placed my hands under a fan dryer. The process took about an hour and a half in total—and for $51, the manicure was still in tip-top shape after a week of fumbling through my handbag for my keys, typing on my laptop, and washing my hands round the clock.

"But is it healthier than gel manicures?" you’re probably thinking.

"They are similar in that both provide an extra layer of protection to natural nails," says licensed nail technician, Harli G, the nail mastermind behind the nail art account @nailsbyharlig. "Dip nails don't require UV/LED light and are typically a much quicker process to apply from start to finish. Gel nails tend to look a bit more natural on the nails than a dip powered enhancement, so I prefer gel manicures."

Before you speed over to your nail salon to test the manicure out for yourself, Harli suggests you consider a few things:

You probably shouldn't try this at-home.

"I would never recommend doing either of these treatments as a DIY at home because for both treatments, there are chemical products that can harm skin or the nail plate if not properly applied. Even professional grade products and products marketed for at-home use contain harming chemicals, so it's just safer to go to a salon for both gel and dip treatments."

Unlike regular manicures, dip powder treatments can last up to a month.

"Dip manicures are supposed to last 3 weeks, but they may even last up to a month or more depending on the level of at-home care after the treatment is applied."

Many salons don't carry the treatment due to sanitation concerns.

"A huge risk for dip nail manicures is sanitation. It is incredibly unsanitary for multiple clients to dip their fingers in the same container of powder, even pouring the product over multiple clients’ nails and allowing the product powder to fall back into the container is an easy way for nail infections to be passed between clients. If you notice techs applying the dip powder in either of those ways, LEAVE and go to a different salon."

Short nails, no problem. Dip powder nail extensions are available.

For years people have gravitated towards full set acrylics to achieve long nails until now. Dip powder still allows nail techs to add nail extensions. Once the nail tech adds fake nail tips, they will file the nail down to the designed shape upon the customer's request. They will complete the process by using the "dip" technique to apply a thin layer of colored powder to the nail. Dip powder is lighter than acrylic, which makes it more durable and longer-lasting, per Kiarasky.com.

Your natural nail can become really fragile.

"Not only that, but as with all nail enhancements, there's a risk of your nail plates becoming dehydrated and brittle. The removal process is crucial. In my experience, most issues with poor natural nail health are a result of nail enhancements, particularly dip nails, and stem from attempts at a DIY removal at home. It is always safest to go back to the salon and have a licensed professional remove any product for you."

Lastly, after-care is extremely helpful to restoring your nail's health.

"Excess exposure to chemicals such as those found in household cleaners can lead to weakened enhancements or brittle natural nails. I always recommend wearing protective gloves to protect both the enhancement, your natural nails and the surrounding skin from weakening, which could lead to painful breakage. Restoring hydration after the treatment and during the wear time will help a lot of the problems that can arise from the dip powder enhancements. Try to apply cuticle oils and high quality moisturizers multiple times a day."

At-home manicures can save you a lot of money, but even the best-quality nail polish inevitably chips within days of application. That's why nail care brands have started to sell at-home gel nail kits in recent years, promising long-lasting, salon-quality hard gel polish manicures for a fraction of the price. But now there's a new-ish at-home manicure method that many DIY manicurists are saying is even better: dip powder nail kits.

What is a dip powder manicure?

Also known as SNS nails, dip powder nails are known for being long-lasting and don't use UV light to harden, unlike gel nails. The color comes from dipping your nails into a finely-milled, pigmented powder before bonding with adhesive, rather than painting on streaks of hard liquid gel. The result is a flawless, evenly coated manicure, usually only achieved by professionals — until now.

If you're wondering if dip powder nails are better than gel nails, the biggest difference between gel and dip powder is longevity. Dip powder manicures can last for three to four weeks, which is twice as long as gel manicures. Also, dip powder manicures don't require UV light-curing lamps. That means you can cut your mani time in half, won't have a bulky nail lamp taking up space in your home, and it's a bonus if you're sensitive to UV exposure.

How do you use a dip powder nail kit at home?

  1. Prep the nail by pushing cuticles back, then filing into your desired nail shape.
  2. Use a nail primer to remove oil and dirt from the nail bed.
  3. Apply the base coat once nails are clean and dry.
  4. Dip into powder color and use a duster brush to remove excess.
  5. Brush on another coat of base and dip again. Double dunking ensures full coverage and a stronger finish for a chip-resistant manicure.
  6. Finally, paint nails with an activator, which bonds the color powder into a lacquered gloss.
  7. Apply a glossy top coat for extra strength.

Are dip powder kits bad for your nails?

If you are worried about your nail health, don't fret: Dip powder itself won't ruin your nails, but scraping and picking the manicure off will. Chipping away at your dip powder nails with a nail stick removes layers of your natural bed, weakening your nails.

Instead, to remove dip powder nails, stick to the same removal process as gel: Dip a cotton pad in acetone and allow it to sit on your nails for 10 to 15 minutes before wiping the color away. If your manicure doesn't budge after 15 minutes, let your nails soak in polish remover a bit longer. Don't forget to rub a good cuticle cream into your nail bed when you're all done to keep your nails healthy and strong.
