How to Do Dip Nails


Does your Nail Polish ever chip when you're doing absolutely nothing? Yeah, same. Welp, we're here to show you the way to super gorgeous, super long-lasting nails with Kolors by K Nail Powder. Here's how you can ditch plain old polish for ultra glossy gel-like nails, but like without the light.

PRO TIP: Powders may settle or become dense sitting overtime & can create uneven dipping results. For seamless dipping, loosen powders by shaking jars while closed or stir with a clean utensil prior to use. Be sure to always paint and immediately dip one nail at a time before moving on to the next finger. This will prevent Step 2 Base from drying out and allow for more powder to adhere to the nail.
