How To Use Acrylic Powders

To begin, prepare your natural nails by ensuring they are clean and dry. Then, apply an acrylic primer to enhance adhesion. Dip your brush into the acrylic monomer liquid and then into the clear or colored acrylic powder of your choice. Add layers for strength as you sculpt the nail into the shape you want. These ultra-fine powders create a smooth, even finish that holds shape and doesn’t run or flatten out. Choose opaque powders for full coverage, translucent for a subtle look, and clear formulas for a natural finish.

Questions About Acrylic Powders

What is the difference between gel and acrylic manicures?

Gel manicures are created by applying gel polish and curing it under UV light. These are thicker and more durable than regular manicures. On the other hand, acrylic nails use a clear or colored acrylic powder and a liquid monomer to create a dough-like substance that is then applied to the nails. These are typically stronger and more durable than gel nails.

Can I use dipping powders for acrylic nails?

You bet! Dipping powders can be used for acrylic nails, giving you a ton of options for creating gorgeous, long-lasting manicures.

Do I need a UV lamp for acrylic powders?

No, clear and colored acrylic powders do not need to be cured under a UV lamp. They are activated with a liquid monomer which makes them even more convenient for at-home or professional use.

What types of nail art can I create with colored acrylic powders?

The possibilities are endless! You can use acrylic powders to create a variety of nail art effects, including: solid color manicures, French manicures, gradient nails, glitter nails, and more! Whatever look you’re going for, we can bet there’s an acrylic powder for it!

Are OPI Absolute Powders worth it?

Absolutely! OPI Absolute Acrylic Powders use Color Lock™ Technology to maintain consistent color fill and prevent yellowing, so you can rock durable and vibrant nails. Plus, the range comes with beautiful opaque, translucent, and clear shades so you can achieve any look you wish.

How do I remove acrylic nails made with powders?

To remove acrylic nails, soak them in acetone until the acrylic softens. Gently file or push off the softened acrylic. Follow up with cuticle oil and nail treatments to keep your natural nails healthy.
