Applying SNS Diping Powders at Home

You’ll need a few simple tools and products to begin doing your own SNS dip powder nails. If you regularly do your own manicures at home then you might already have some of these.

What You'll Need

SNS Dip Powder Application Steps

Before you apply your SNS dipping powders, make sure you have properly prepped your nails. Preparation is the key to any long-lasting manicure, so don’t overlook it.

Now let’s get dipping!

Step 1

Apply SNS Gel Base to ¾ of the nail plate and dip the nail into SNS Natural Set Dip Powder. Tap the finger and use your small nail brush to lightly dust the excess powder off and around the nail.

Repeat this step but this time apply it to the entire nail, avoiding the cuticle line. Do this for all 10 nails.

Step 2

Apply SNS Gelous Base polish to the nail, again avoiding the cuticle line. Then, dip the nail into your chosen SNS Gelous Color Dip Powder. Tap and then brush excess powder off the nail.

Repeat this step to build thickness or colour.

Step 3

Apply another layer of SNS Gelous Base to the nail, then dip the nail into SNS Natural Set Sheer Powder. Tap and brush excess powder off the nail.

Step 4

Brush SNS Sealer Dry onto each nail. This sets and hardens dip powder so try not to get it anywhere you don’t want dip powder to adhere to!

Step 5

Buff each nail using the buffer block until you have a nice, even surface. Use a nail file to reshape the nails, if necessary.

Step 6

Apply SNS Sealer Dry once more and allow to dry completely. Use a lint-free alcohol wipe to remove any excess.

Step 7

Apply a thin layer of SNS Gel Top coat on the nail and wait for it to dry for 1-2 minutes. Apply a second coat of SNS Gel Top coat to each nail. Allow your nails to dry for 2-5 minutes.

Step 8

Lastly, apply SNS Vitamin Oil to your cuticle area and massage in for that fresh set, salon-quality look and feel.

And ta-da! Fresh, salon-quality DIY SNS dip powder nails all in the comfort of your own home.
