Step 1: Prepare Your Canvas

Step 2: Choose Your Dip Powder Colors 

Select two complementary dip powder colors for your ombre design. The beauty of dip powder lies in its versatility – experiment with one of our 200+ 3in1 color powders to achieve the perfect gradient blend.

Step 3: Apply a Base Coat

Begin with applying Dip Color Base to create a smooth surface for the dip powder application. This enhances the longevity of your ombre nails and provides a clean canvas for the gradient effect.

Step 4: Apply the First Dip Powder Layer

Start with the lighter color as the base. Using a dip ombre brush or spoon sprinkle the lighter color powder as the base, allow the powder to set for a few seconds and sprinkle the second color on the rest of the nail. After a few seconds dust off any excess powder.



Step 5: Repeat with the Second Coat and powder layer

Apply a second coat of Dip Color Base and sprinkle darker color at the tip and the lighter color at the base. Let it set for a few seconds and dust off excess powder and let air dry.



Step 6: Seal the Deal

Apply Dip Activator to set the dip powder and ensure a smooth transition between the colors. Let it dry for a few minutes.

Step 7: Shape and Buff

Shape your nails to your desired length and style. A buffing block can smooth the surface creates a seamless ombre transition.

Step 8: Add an Activator & Top Coat

After filing and buffing your nails apply Dip Activator to make sure your Top Coat dries. Finish off your ombre nails with Dip Top Coat to seal in the colors and provide a glossy finish. To achieve the best shine apply a second layer of Dip Top Coat after first coat is completely dry. This step enhances the overall look and adds durability to your manicure.
