Types of Manicures
When receiving a dip manicure, ensure your nail tech uses their own individual pot to apply the color powder directly over your nails instead of sharing one pot that could become contaminated with bacteria.
White Dip Powder
Dip powder nails provide easy nail design with their wide selection of color choices and the dipping process usually being less damaging to natural nails than acrylics; however, incorrect application or removal could weaken them over time.
Your nail technician will apply a base coat and dust or brush on powder one nail at a time, before dipping each one two or three times depending on desired opacity. Finally, liquid sealant will be painted onto harden and create a glossy finish on all nails.

Colorful Dip Powder
Dip powder nails may be just what’s needed to elevate your manicure game with some vibrant hues, according to New York Daily News. This hybrid nail technique (known as SNS nails) involves layering pigmented powder over gel bases, according to reports by SNS Nails and dip powder nails.
Dip powder nails offer a wider array of color choices than traditional polish. A nail technician can use white powder to create a French manicure effect; or you can mix colors for an eye-catching ombre effect.
Dip powder nails may provide a durable alternative to gel and acrylic nails, yet can still cause irreparable damage if removed incorrectly, according to Dr. Dana Stern. While they cost slightly more than regular manis and tend to become dull over time, these options tend to be less harmful than acrylics as well as more likely to not chip or peel, respectively.
