Dip powder is amazing for nail techs who want to save time or beginner nail techs. It's an easier and faster way to get those gorgeous nails you often see on Instagram. Dip powder is used to create a natural, lightweight, and strong nail enhancement and can be used on both your natural nails and an artificial tip to create an extension. The Dip Powders at iGel Beauty are manufactured in-house, which means we have full control of the quality of the products. They're perfect for achieving a smooth, even application.
Better yet? They also work wonders for Acrylic applications. Why is this so great? This versatility allows nail techs to customize what they wish for their clients—perhaps their clients may get dip flu, so they need Acrylic application. On the contrary, it's also good for beginner nail techs who want to start off by learning the Dip Method, however, later in their nail journey, people tend to eventually learn Acrylic applications as well. With the Dip Powders at iGel Beauty coming in a whopping 2 oz. jar, which is double the industry standard, this is sure to be a future-proof investment.
We at iGel Beauty also often come up with hundreds of different colors, providing you with the exact shade you wish for. The Dip Powder is formulated without harsh chemicals and has added vitamins and calcium to strengthen the nails without damaging the nail bed.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Dip Powder & Acrylic?
Dip powder is activated with glazes, so it has no need for monomer, is odorless, and has a much faster application. It's perfect for those who want a more natural alternative or are too hesitant to try the Acrylic application. Dip powder is also much thinner than Acrylic application, however it still has the same structure and just as much strength as Acrylic.
Can your Dip Powder be used for both Dip & Acrylic?
Yes it can! Our powders are specialized to be used for both Dip and Acrylic application. This versatility allows nail techs to customize what they wish for their clients - perhaps their clients may get dip flu so they need Acrylic application. On the contrary, it's also good for beginner nail techs who want to start off by learning the Dip Method, however later in their nail journey, people tend to eventually learn Acrylic application as well. With the Dip Powders at iGel Beauty coming at a whopping 2 oz jar which is double the industry standard, this is sure to be a future-proof investment.
Note: The powders that have "RECOMMENDED FOR DIP" are ideal for the dip application. While it can be used for Acrylic application, it may be more difficult to do so due to the formula used for these specific colors. Ooh La La Powders are formulated specifically for dipping but bear in mind that these are prone to marbling. With small beads, a little manipulation and a lot of patience, they will work as acrylic.
What do you recommend for beginners?
Our powders DP01 to DP05 are great powders to start with. Clear, French White, Light Pink, Medium Pink, and Dark Pink. You will need the 6 dip essentials for the dipping method: Bond, Base, Activator, Top Coat, Nourish Oil, and Brush Saver. We also recommend an acrylic brush for acrylic application - Beauties usually love using the size 14 Kolinsky brush. For optimal results with acrylic application, we suggest to use our iGel Beauty Monomer as it's formulated to achieve optimal results with our products. Both our powders and our liquid monomer are good for beginners/slow setting!
How long does Dip/Acrylic last?
When applied correctly, a dip or acrylic set can last anywhere from 3-4 weeks without chipping or lifting!
Can I apply Gel Polish on top of Dip Powder?
Yes you can! You can even use the foundations as well; however please note that the original intended use for the foundations are for each specific application and are not tested to be optimized and may lead to color differences. We have heard a lot of feedback from our community that they love doing this 'gel-method' though!
What are the dimensions of your jars?
The height, width and length of our jars are as follows:
1 oz jar: 1 1/2" x 2" x 2"
2 oz jar: 2" x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
I received my jar half-empty! I need a replacement.
Different powders weigh differently in this case; pigments have varying textures, densities, and masses. When our production team fills the jars with the machine, it is filled to the top. Naturally, the powder will settle down during transportation or if it is stationary. Rest assured that this is normal. Mixing the powders thoroughly would help activate the ingredients and bring back the volume of the powders.
