Looking down at your grown-out, chipped, or naked nails and wishing you could pop over to your favorite nail salon? There’s no time like the present to learn how to do your own dip powder manicures. Like gel nails, dip powder is long-lasting—up to three weeks!—but doesn’t require an LED light for curing. The process involves painting on a base coat, then dipping your entire nail in the color powder, repeating as necessary to achieve the correct color, buffing to shape the nail, and finishing with top coat. It’s all very fun and ASMR-friendly—and these kits make it achievable to DIY. Here are the ones worth trying, for at-home manis that last and last.
