Dip powder has recently become synonymous with gorgeous, long-lasting color that doesn’t sacrifice the health of your nails. The only problem is, just like gel, removing it can be pretty tricky, which is why the process has been getting some flack.
How to Remove Dip Powder Nails
– Nail file
– Cotton balls
– Foil (optional)
– Small bowl (optional)
1: The best way to remove dip at home is to file or buff off the shiny topcoat, this will allow the acetone to penetrate. Use a fine emery board in a back and forth, side to side motion until the top layer of your nails look dull and covered with fine white dust.
2: Save yourself the time and effort of rubbing your nails raw with a plain soaked cotton ball, as dip powder won’t come off in a simple stroke. Place a drenched cotton ball on top of your buffed nail and wrap it in a small square of foil. Repeat for each nail.
3: Once you peel off the foil or pull your fingers out of the bowl of acetone, the powder should rub right off.
