I LOVE a good glitter mani. But I am rough as hell on my nails. Between doing dishes, washing my hands all the time and lifting weights, my nails take a beating.

A couple of years ago, a friend introduced me to Dip Manicures at the salon and I was hooked.

  • Dries almost instantly.
  • No smudging.
  • Doesn’t chip.
  • Easier on my nails than acrylics.
  • Cost comparative to gel manis at the salon


After a while, the cost of going every 3-4 weeks started getting to me, so I took a break for a few months. After running around with naked nails for a while, I started going back to the salon and getting all kinds of extras with glitters and wanting ombre – which made it even MORE expensive.

This past fall, after seeing numerous ads all over Facebook and Instagram, I figured I would get a kit and learn how to do my own Dip Powder Nails at home. I bought a small kit from Sally’s beauty and I was shocked at how simple it was! After doing some more research, I stumbled across Revel Nail.

Revel Nail Dip Powder

Revel Nail was running a huge Black Friday sale, so I took the opportunity to load up on a bunch of different colors. Six months and 30+ colors later, I’m never going back to the salon. My nails are in better shape than they have ever been, and I have saved a TON of money by doing these at home.

I’ve learned a lot over the last 6 months, so I decided to make a video of how I do these on my own nails, so you can see just how easy it is to do your own dip powder nails at home!
