Step by step guide to Nail Dipping Application

Step by step guide to Dipping nails application

Procedure for applying dipping nail colour on natural nails:


Step 1

Prep all 10 nails see post

Step 2

Apply 1 coat of Base to 3/4 of the natural nail

Dip into natural set or clear powder (provides extra strength and durability)

Repeat on all 10 nails

Step 3

Apply 1 coat of Base over entire nail. Dip into powder.

Repeat on all 10 nails.

Step 4

Repeat step 3

Step 5

Apply 1 more coat of gelous base. Dip into clear powder

*After dipping 1 hand I like to apply sealer to this hand before dipping the second hand - it allows more drying time for the next step.

Clear is your final coat which will protect your colour before the buffing stage.

Step 6

Apply sealer over entire nail.

Step 7

Shape nails, file surface to smooth out any bumps.

Step 8

Block buff to smooth out the nail surface.

Step 9

Wash hands.

Step 10

Ensure nails are completely dry. Any moisture left on the nails will wreck your sealer.

Apply sealer to all 10 nails.

Step 11

Wait 1 min. Wipe nails with a dry lint free gauze. Again there must be no moisture remaining - this will harden your topcoat brush.

Apply 2 thin coats of Top gel

Wait 1-2 minutes

Nails should be completely dry - your client can get out her purse and keys, pay you and drive home without smudging her nails.
