Dip powder nails are the right choice for nail art lovers, thanks to their fade resistant shine and longer durability than conventional nail treatments or gel polish color nails. Dip powder nails are more popular than the old nail methods. Because Dip Nails is a new and popular nail method, there are many brands on the market today for different products and dip powder collections, but we have to mention OPI powder dip, it is also known as OPI powder dip nails. OPI company is always leading the nail market in providing and producing the best and best quality products!
The dip powder created by OPI is a dip powder line that combines a nail glue and colored acrylic powder to create a long-lasting, highly adhesive nail set that does not require the use of LEDs or UV lamps to dry.
However, because dip powder nails are covered with resin and powder, the nails made with OPI dip powder will be thicker than regular gel or nail polish nails. That is why it is difficult for you to remove OPI powder dip nails by yourself and they risk damaging your natural nails, even more than removing gel nail polish nails if you do not know how to do it or do it or do it in wrong procedure and careless. The process of removing dip powder nails in general is quite difficult and the fact that you have to remove all that is left on the old nail set when you want to change and create a new set of nails.
Removing OPI powder dip nail is just like removing acrylics, you should go to a nail salon to ask a professional nail technician remove the dip powder nails, however, with your patience and care, you can also safely remove your own OPI dip powder nails at home while keeping your nails healthy and beautiful.
Here is a safe and effective way to remove OPI dip powder nails at home
To perform the dipping powder nail removal steps at home, you need to fully prepare the following tools:
Nail file, nail scissors, Acetone, a small bowl and the cuticle pusher.
Step 1: Cut the exposed parts of the nail and the nail area down to the color
Using a nail clipper, trim off the tips of the false nails until the length matches the length of the natural nail underneath. Next, when dealing with nail color, remember that you must slowly and persistently file the surface of the nail so that the layers of powder become thinner, the dipping powder nail removal process will be more manageable.
To remove dip powder nails, it is important to file the dipping powder color down as much as possible, this will help facilitate the acetone removal process. Dilute the acetone well so it can absorb quickly!
Note: Electronic nail file or nail drill is a great tool to speed up nail grinding, it is often used by professional manicurists, if you don’t know how to use or you are newbie to use a nail drill, you should not use it for the first time when removing your own OPI dip nail colors at home because it can damage your natural nails or scratch your hands if you are careless. Choose a traditional nail file instead until you get used to use it.
Step 2: Soak your nails in the bowl of acetone
Soaking your nails in acetone will help to remove the dipping powder. Don’t rush, we recommend soaking them for 10 minutes, then gently scraping off as much residue as possible. If the base gel polish still doesn’t come off after 10 minutes, you need to soak your hands in the acetone bowl longer.
Step 3: Gently scrape off any remaining polish
For this process, using a cuticle pusher and scrape towards the tip of the nail. If there is still dipping powder on your nail, repeat this process again until it is completely removed and you should be patient! Don’t rush because you may damage your nail root if don’t be careful, never tear the dip powder nail off as you can cause serious injury to the nail.
Step 4: Take care of your nails and hands
After you have just finished the steps of removing dipping nails, you should use nail products and nail primers for strong and natural nails! In addition, you should use serums to keep the skin soft and smooth. Then proceed to make another dip powder nail set with OPI powder dip to get durable, strong and beautiful nails.
OPI powder dip products are very durable and last a long time, the shelf life for 1 set of OPI powder color set is up to 1 month. However, it is very easy to remove when done properly. You should try OPI dip powder to see the clearly difference from other products!
