Once you’ve finished reading this guide, you’ll walk away with a better knowledge of manicures and a desire to get yourself one of our manicure kits!
First of all, let us explain what powder polish is so that you can better understand what we are talking about. Powder polish, also called porcelain or dip powder, is an amazing breakthrough in nail technology. In just a few minutes it is possible to get beautiful nails that can last up to 4 weeks!
Its application is extremely simple and includes the light filing of the nails to create a rough texture that would allow the powder to cling to it, the application of a base coat, the dipping of the nails in the powder, the finishing of the process with a topcoat!
Now that you have a rough idea of what powder polish is and how it is applied, let’s cut to the chase and see how it differs from regular nail polish and why it’s better.
|Powder Coating||Regular nail polish|
|Lasts up to 4 weeks||Only lasts 2-3 days|
|Lasts longer||Tends to chip quickly|
|Dries faster||More likely to smudge|
|Odorless||Strong chemical smell|
|Doesn’t require UV lamp||Takes longer to dry|
Considering the big differences between the two, we think you now understand why we prefer powder polishes over the usual nail polish that everyone is so used to.
