DIY Dip Powder Nails & imPRESS

Want hassle free nails that literally take minutes to apply? If so, imPRESS Press-on Manicure and Pedicure is for you. If your preference is a manicure that wears beautifully for up to two weeks, read all about salon dip–the hottest new trend in nail strengthening­.

The salon dip technique involves dipping natural nails into a fine clear or colored powder, which is then bonded to the nail with a brush-on sealer. The result adds an extra layer of strength to the nails that is stronger than acrylics (and does not require use of a UV or LED light) and longer lasting and gentler on the nails than gel nail polish.

The one drawback: salon dip is one of the priciest services at a nail salon. But here’s news: now you can nail it like a pro, using Salon Dip Professional Dipping System or Salon Dip Color System ($12.99), both by KISS beauty products. These all-in-one KISS starter kits include everything you need, and Celebrity Manicurist Gina Edwards has a step-by-step tutorial video that shows you how to DIY.  Geared to both novices and nail art enthusiasts, the video demonstrates easy ways to achieve salon quality precision using a KISS Salon Dip System. No UV light. No harsh odor. Color lasts 2 weeks or more and easily soaks off with KISS Quick Soak-Off ($4.99, sold separately).

Even if you go the salon dip route, when you’re short on time, turn to imPRESS Press-on Manicure and Press-on Pedicure to keep it simple; it’s just one easy step that doesn’t require any dry time or additional gels or adhesives!
