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.

Nail dipping - how to stop your brushes from hardening (1)

Nail dipping – how to stop your brushes from hardening

Nail dipping - how to stop your brushes from hardening

 

You're working away, everything is going great when all of a sudden your brush becomes hard and unusable.

Or even worse, you open the bottle and your entire product has dried up! (Usually the top coat)

This is a common problem when you are starting out with nail dipping.

If this has happened more than once you might be tempted to give up on dipping nails as is getting too expensive having to constantly replace your topcoat!

Don't give up!

This is a problem that's easily prevented.

Firstly, your sealer dry is essential to your nails drying but it must never come in contact with your top gel.

 

But I am supposed to put sealer on before top gel, you ask?

Yes, correct. But it is essential that your sealer is dry before applying your top gel.

A minute amount of sealer in contact with your brush will cause it to harden and contaminate your sealer.

The following applies to all nail dipping systems - SNS etc

How to avoid your dipping nail top gel brush hardening:

  1. Finish filing and buffing the nails.
  2. If your client washes her hands, ensure the nails are completely dry before proceeding - If there is any moisture on the nails when you apply your sealer it will contaminate your sealer.
  3. Apply a generous amount of sealer dry to the entire nail on all 10 nails.
  4. Wait 1 minute.
  5. Optional step: Wipe over the nails with a lint free square to ensure the nails are completely dry. As you get more experienced in judging when the nails are dry you probably won't need to do this.
  6. Apply a thin coat of top gel.
  7. Apply another coat of top gel
  8. Wait 1-2 minutes and the nails should be completely dry and your brush should be as good as new!

What is Nail Dipping?

What is Nail Dipping?

What is Nail Dipping?

Nail Dipping is the latest trend in nails.

An alternative to acrylic and gel, it has become extremely popular and loved by nail techs and clients.

How Nail Dipping works:

A gel/resin base is applied to the nail then dipped into a coloured powder.

After dipping 2-3 times a sealer product is brushed on to the nails to speed up the drying process.

Once dry, the nails are filed and shaped, followed by more sealer and a Gel topcoat.

The powder is basically an acrylic powder but instead of using traditional acrylic liquid (monomer) the gel base is used.

Nail Dipping Advantages for consumers:

  • Less odour - there is no strong smell like with acrylic
  • Dries super fast - once the final topcoat is applied nails are ready to go in 1-2 minutes
  • No UV lamp is used
  • Short soak off time - <10 minutes
  • When applied and removed correctly does not cause damage to the natural nail
  • Colour stays fresh for 2 weeks or more
  • Can do colour or French

 

Nail Dipping Advantages for nail techs:

  • Faster application, saves time
  • Less filing than acrylic
  • Less odour
  • Less filing means less dust
  • No UV or LED lamp is needed
  • No drying time is needed
  • Abundant colour choices, including glitter and French
