Hi Friends! Today we are talking about powder dip nails. I’m sharing my thoughts on DoubleDip Nail products and dip powder. In the late 90s, I tried a dip powder that mainly was an acrylic to build your nails. It was used to create “acrylic type nails”. I’ve never tried dip powders since, not these types anyway and I’m loving them. Thank you DoubleDip Store for introducing me to powder dip nails.
I’m excited to be sharing with all of you my thoughts on DoubleDip Nails. Seriously, how fun is this summery mani? In the video, I’m sharing with you the first time I’ve ever done dip nails (with colored dip powder). It’s so incredibly easy to do.

I tried 3 colors from the Summer Collection. They include Goo Getter (green), 90s Baby (hot/neon pink) and Atomic Orange (orange). Each dipping powder comes with 2oz of the product (a very large container, perfect for dipping long nails). The powders are finely milled and very soft and silky. With or without discounts, the powders are very well priced and I love that they are made in the USA.
I’m absolutely impressed by the durability and longevity of these dip powders and liquids. I have read that dip powders last about 2-3 weeks and these have done so. My nails remained shiny (great topcoat) the whole time. And, my manicure looks like I just had it done, with exception to grow out, of course.
Does it need to be cured by UV Lamp?
Unlike Gel manicures, dipping powder does not require the curing of a UV Lamp, which is awesome. They have not cracked or chipped on me and they provided a protection layer on my natural nails. I’ve been washing dishes daily, working out and so much more without any worry that my mani would be destroyed. These powders provide great strength to my nails. But, are still thin so that it doesn’t feel like I have anything on them.
They are extremely fast-drying and the cure time is almost instant. There is no funky smell and my nails are so smooth and pretty. My nails look like I just left the nail salon. It’s been 10 years since going to a nail salon, so this gives me an option to do it myself. I haven’t had any issues using these and I have already removed them once to put on a new mani. A dip powder manicure takes less time for me versus having to wait for traditional nail polishes to dry. While it’s not instant, it was quick. I love that I can go about my day without waiting for polish to dry.
Is it beginner friendly?
I’m a beginner using colored dip powders and I found these extremely easy to use from the jump. If you are looking to try something new and easy, the kits from DoubleDip are great. DoubleDip also has a lot of tutorials to help get you started as well.
How does it work?
Here are my steps that I did to apply DoubleDip Nail Powders:
- Prep your nails by sanitizing and cleaning before applying products. A clean surface helps the product to stick but is also important to prevent fungal infection.
- Push back your cuticles gently
- Remove shine/oil from the surface of your nail. No need to file the nail bed like traditionally done. I simply used a gentle nail block buffer and lightly removed shine.
- Apply a bonder to the nail to help with longevity. I did not do this step, but it definitely does help. Doubledipstore.com does have a bonder liquid that you can purchase as well.
- Apply a thin layer of base coat, evenly to the nail. I did one nail at a time. This ensures the based coat did not dry before I had the chance to dip it.
- Dip your nail into selected nail powder at a 45-degree angle. Tap off the excess and dust off the nail with your brush.
- Repeat the steps on the other nails and decide if you want to do a second coat.
- Clean off all the dust from your nails and apply activator. Let dry completely.
- Use buffer and file to lightly file nail to smooth.
- Clean nails, wash hands well. Do not use soap.
- Apply activator again, let dry
- Apply top coat, let dry
Have you tried powder dip nail manicures before? Overall, I’m very impressed with the quality and longevity of my manicure. I’ve had my neon nails for about 3 weeks. My nails look like I just stepped out of the nail salon. I’m loving dip powder so much! I have a very large shopping cart filled with DoubleDip powders, ready for checkout.
My final thoughts
Let’s be honest here, I don’t have a lot of time to devote to doing my nails. A few months ago I stopped painting my nails because of the drying time. Traditional nail polish took so long to dry and I didn’t have that kind of time to sacrifice. I was able to do a whole manicure and let the top coat dry in about 45 minutes. I’m able to wash dishes after the top coat dried. This is something I would not have been able to do with traditional polish. My nails had a shine that is unbeatable as well and lasted for weeks. I love that my nails have added strength. But, that there is no damage to my natural nails like traditional acrylic overlays.
