Frequently asked questions.
All your dipped nail queries answered!
Don't panic! From time to time the brush on the Base and Top Coat can go hard due to the product being used on an activated nail before the Activator has fully dried.
It is easy to resolve this problem by placing the hardened brush into the Brush Saver and the fresh soft brush from the Brush Saver bottle into either the Base or Top Coat bottles.
It is important to ensure you dry the fresh soft brush on a piece of kitchen towel or a lint free wipe.
For more hints and tips on preserving brushes and bottles, see our hints and tips video.
Our products can be sensitive to room temperature which can effect the curing or drying time.
When using the nail dipping system, ensure your environment is ambient temperature. If the room is too cold or humid it can affect the drying time.
After completing step 2 and activating the nails it's time to buff and shape. Once you have your desired finish it is important to reactivate the nail to ensure the base resin cures.
Yes, yes, yes!
Our dip powder system gives flawless results on both nail extensions and natural nails.

We recommend two methods to remove dip powder nails
1. Cotton in foil
- Soak cotton with acetone and place on each nail
- Wrap the cotton in squares of foil
- Leave your nails in the foil pockets for 10 minutes
- Using a cuticle pusher or nail file remove softened resin
- Repeat the process if necessary to remove all of the excess resin
- Moisturise your nails with your preferred cuticle oil
2. The Soak Method
This is our preferred method!
See our YouTube video on how to remove your dip powder nails.
Dipped powder nails can last 3-5 weeks depending on nail care and natural nail growth.
As with anything in life, if you take care of your nails they will last longer.
To avoid discolouring or ware and tare, we recommend finishing your dip powder manicure with a final layer of clear. This will provide a protective barrier to the coloured dip.

Once receiving your fresh Dip powders, we recommend giving the powders a good shake. Our powders go through stringent quality checks and are made in small batches in able to have consistent quality. As we use natural earth pigment where possible, the pigment may clump in your jar. Nothing a good shake or rub together in a sandwich bag won't fix.
If your powder is dipping streaks, please replace the lid and give the powders a good shake. If the powder continues to apply with streaks or uneven colour, please send an image to email@example.com. One of our friendly customer service team will be happy to help.
We have some incredibly talented brand ambassadors that use Gel and regular polishes to create beautiful nail designs.
