The Best Dip Powder Nails of 2019 – Kara Reveals Her Top 5

The Most Irresistible Nail Dipping Powders Put To The Test

A manicure that can last upwards of three weeks can sometimes seem like a beauty miracle, but if you’re fed up with chipped polish and don’t want to splash out on gels, there is a new manicure hack in town – dip powder nails!

This DIY wonder is somewhere between a regular manicure and a false nail. It’s created using an SNS nail kit or a special mixture of acrylic powders and liquids.

To seal in the polish you don’t need a UV nail light anymore, instead the color comes in the form of a powder. Between the base and top coats, you dip your nails into a little pot of powdered color. In a salon, however, don’t be surprised if the powder is painted on for the sake of hygiene.

Dipping your nails is a surprisingly satisfying thing to do, and this trend is set to last, just like your new dip powder nails!

So which dip powder kits are the best this year?

 

1) Dipping Powder Nail Starter Kit

What Makes It Great

If you’ve never dipped before, this kit contains everything you need to start creating long lasting powder manicures. With three gorgeous colors you can mix up hundreds of others to create the perfect color for you. Low odor, non toxic and with Vitamin E and Calcium added, not only will your nails look awesome, but they’ll be healthy too. I found that this little set from Mefa produced an extremely durable and hard wearing nail that still hadn’t chipped after almost three weeks.

Where It Could Be Improved

The color range is a little pale for my taste, but by layering on a little more product, you can achieve a deeper shade.

For a nail manicure that lasts and lasts, is simple to use, and looks stunning, this kit is well worth considering.

2) Cuccio Dipping Powder – 8 Colors

What Makes It Great

With 8 vibrant colors, including glitters, to choose from, not too mention how many you can mix yourself, this kit from Cuccio is packed with ideas. The booklet that comes in the box is full of unusual designs, all of which can be recreated by dipping, although some may need a little experience. The price, for what’s included, is very budget friendly.

Where It Could Be Improved

It’s great the the pots are filled to the very top, however this does mean that you do get a little over spill when you dip.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Whether you’re a dip powder novice or more experienced, this kit is a great buy. The colors are vibrant, and it’s decently priced. This is one for the gift list!

3) Mia Secret Nail Acrylic Dipping Powder

What Makes It Great

The reason this is my favorite out of all three, is the cute little pots. The colors are lovely, the powders odorless and non toxic, and the application process is simple. But the little pots just make me go a bit weak at the knees. It’s almost beside the point that these stayed chip-free for nearly four weeks, and each color has a beautiful water-like shimmer to it.

Where It Could Be Improved

One of the colors I received didn’t match those in the picture, however it’s still gorgeous and in no way was I disappointed.

The Final Verdict

The formula on this set of nail dipping powders is amazing! It's a great value for money and will definitely become one of your favorite and go-to shimmery looks!

4) PrettyDiva Chrome Nail Powder

 


What Makes It Great

This 7 jar set from Pretty Diva is full of possibilities – the range of colored effects you can create is huge, and all equally stunning. Depending on how light or dark your base coat is alters the way the colors shine. You can have an awesome ‘unicorn’ pearl-escent gleam, or a mirrored chrome that catches every glint of light. So easy to apply with the included brushes, quick drying, and once the top coat is added, incredibly durable. Mine stayed looking simply amazing for nearly three weeks!

Where It Could Be Improved

These powders don’t have the same effect when used with regular polish. They need a gel top and base coat to bring out their full gorgeousness.

9.4Expert Score
The Final Verdict

If you want nails that set any room alight, at a very budget friendly price, this set of powders should be in your manicure kit.

5) BORN PRETTY Pearl Dipping Powder

 

What Makes It Great

This set has 9 jars of pure magic – beautiful, well matched colors with a sparkling glitter shine. The red is a particularly unusual shade, and makes the perfect background for a 3D diamond effect. The pearlescent colors produce a ‘mermaid’ like shimmer, while the darker chrome look gives a futuristic shine that’s so on trend this season. For a full three weeks I was able to show my nails off everywhere I went.

Where It Could Be Improved

This set could be improved with the addition of brushes – you can never have too many!

9.1Expert Score
The Final Verdict

For the sheer variety of effects, this set of powders is awesome. Extremely durable, simple to apply, and at a great price - perfect!
