Dipping Powder Nails

Cuccio Dipping System Starter Kit 

Hello, hello and what an exciting post I have for you all today! The nail trend going around is all about dipping powder nails. It's basically as easy as gel with the strength of acrylic, and can be easily soaked off. Using a resin base and finely milled acrylic powders, you can easily create stunning full colour, gradient or French manicure nails in under 30 minutes, and they will last for 2 weeks. I was kindly sent a starter kit with everything you need from Cuccio UK.
Cuccio Pro Dipping Powder starter kit comes in these cute packaging. With full step by step instructions.
The bottles are numbered to make this item super easy to use.
The Primer is fast drying and cleanes the nail plate making a perfect bond for the powder. The top and base gel leaves a super smooth finish. The Layering gel is super thin for multiple dipping. The Gel Activator creates a fast curing without the need of a LED or UV light. Great to have a brush cleaner to wipe off any powder residue after application. And finally the Milk and Honey cuticle oil is super lush.
You also get Clear, White, French Pink, Passionate Pink and Silver Glitter dipping powders. That come with a protective seal.
Once removed they look like this...
To make French Manicures easier you pour the dipping powder into these handy pots, you get 3, each come with lids.
I'll do another post showing a French manicure using these pots at a later date. But for now I have done a full nail colour using Passionate Pink and Silver Glitter.
I started with cleaning my nails and pushing back my cuticles. Then applied the primer. A careful thin coat of the top and base, then dipped into the Powder, tapping off the excess. Then a coat of the layering gel and dip into the colour again. A final coat of the layering gel and dip into the clear powder. Back to the top and base again, then the activator. Completely dry straight away! File and buff smooth, then wash your hands. A final topcoat of your choice and then some nourishing cuticle oil and your finished.

Now considering I was doing all this with my non dominant hand, I'm super pleased with how these came out. But this kit was really very easy to use. They don't feel overly thick, just like a normal polish, and with the range of different coloured dipping powders available, this is a great trend for this year.
You can find, follow and keep up to date with Cuccio on FacebookInstagram and
Twitter.
And be sure to come back soon to see another mani using this dip powder system.
Stay safe and much love....

  8. These colors are lovely!! I'm glad it was so easy to do. I hate when things look pretty and may seem simple but are difficult in reality.
