What you need:

- Cuticle pusher
- Nail buffer
- Hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol
- Nail bonder or nail base coat
A dip powder manicure kit that contains:
- Resin glue
- Colored powder
Thoroughly clean your nails using a nail polish remover. Follow that up with a cuticle pusher to push back the cuticles.
Use a sanitizer or rubbing alcohol to sanitize and clean your nails to prevent any dirt or bacteria from being locked in the manicure. Then coat your nails using a base coat or clear nail polish and let it dry for a minute.
Post this slowly apply the resin to your nails. Start the area just above the cuticle and move towards the nail edge. Remember to apply just one coat.
Dip your finger into the clear powder container and roll it in for a few seconds until the entire nail is properly covered. Remove the finger and gently tap to remove any excess powder.
Apply another layer of clear resin on the clear powder and dip your finger in the colour powder container of your choice. Roll it in for a few seconds until the entire nail is properly covered. Remove the finger and gently tap to remove any excess powder.
Apply the activator to your nails in the same way that you apply a top coat after your normal nail paint.
After you have applied the activator, apply a fresh top coat that is specifically meant for acrylic nails and let it dry completely.
Voila! Your dip powder manicure is ready.
