Cons and Pros of Dipping Powder Manicure

Cons of a Dip Powder Manicure

The first thing to watch out for is the method by which the powder is applied. Some nail technicians will dip your nails directly into the container — this is how the manicure earned its name — versus painting the pigment on with a brush. This is unsanitary because of germs that can be picked up on the nail from dipping it into the bottle. If you choose to get this manicure done, make sure your manicurist is actually painting on the base, pigment, and sealant coats, not dipping.

Dip powders are temporarily damaging to the nails as the seal layer of your nails is broken in the process of this type of manicure. Dip powders also tend to temporally dehydrate the nails.

Pros of a Dip Powder Manicure

If you’re already addicted to dip manis, don’t fret, there are no long-term effects. The dip powders aren’t necessarily healthier than other types of manicures, the products are not permanently damaging.

The root of the nails will not be damaged in the process and a new layer of nail will continue to grow.

If you do choose to get one, we recommends using paper wraps. A manicure involving paper wrapping the free edge of the nails can last up to two weeks. This manicure is healthier for the nails and it won’t be roughened in the process.

Another thing to keep in mind is that dip powders are not that far off from acrylic and gel. Because dip powders are made up of grains of pigment, they have more intense colors. This is different from acrylic nails that involve a liquid and a powder that bond to form a gel. Like acrylics, gel manicures are also a liquid that hardens when it comes into contact with a UV light. And with dip powders, a manicurist will use a glue that contains cyanoacrylate to get it to stick on the nail.

As with gel and acrylic manicures, the removal process with a dip powder manicure is key. Generally all three types of manicures will require that you soak off the product, which can sometimes be time-consuming. But don’t rush it. Patience is key, so you don’t damage the top layer of your nails.
