How-To: The Easy Way to do Dip Powder at Home

Discover how easy it actually is to do your own dip powder treatment right at home - no salon experience required. With EMCHI, you can get everything you need to get started whether this is your first time, or you're ready for a new color. 

Getting Started:

Before you begin, thoroughly wash and sanitize your hands and nails. If you haven't already, order an EMCHI Dip Powder Starter Kit, which has everything you need to do a dip powder manicure at home. 

1. Push back the cuticles and clean the surrounding nail plate of any excess cuticle and use a 180 file (or a fine drill bit) to remove shine from the natural nails, then use a buffer. 

2. Apply a thin coat of Step 1: Pro Base to cover 40% of the nail bed, then dip finger into Clear Dipping Powder. Tap off excess immediately.   

3. Apply a second coat of Step 1: Pro Base to cover 90% of the natural nail, then dip finger into your chosen Dip Powder, using a scooping motion. Tap off excess immediately. 

4. Apply a third coat of Step 1: Pro Base to the entire nail. Dip and tap off excess. 

5. Apply a final coat of Step 1: Pro Base to the entire nails. 

6. Apply a coat of Step 2: Activator on all nails, allowing about 20-30 seconds to dry. Ensure to cover edges and cap off the tips of the nails.

 

7. Once dry, remove any excess dip powder from the cuticle area with a file then buffer. 

8. Use a brush to brush off the nails; or you can also rinse hands under water, but do not use soap. 

9. Apply a second coat of Step 2: Activator over the nail, allowing 20-30 seconds to try. Wipe off the excess Activator with a dry paper towel. 

 

10. Apply a thin coat of Step 3: Finishing Gel to three-quarters (3/4) of the nail in 2-3 very quick brush strokes. Then apply a second coat in a slower motion to the entire nail. Cover edges and cap off the tips of the nails.

 

 

Once you've finished all the remaining nails, allow 1-2 minutes to dry (no UV light required!) before your beautiful nail treatment is complete.
