Sparkle and shine with the Nailboo glitter ombre dip powder manicure. This mani makes your digits gleam with brilliant shine. Grab your Nailboo dip kit and follow these steps to snag this ultra-chic mani style.

What You Need 

We assembled everything you need to create your dazzling dip powder manicure. Snag your Nailboo dip kit, which includes the following:

Cuticle Care

Nail prep ensures an even dip powder coverage. So grab your cuticle pusher and gently push your cuticles back. 

Apply cuticle oil to your cuticles daily to keep them hydrated and prevent dry skin around your nails. Healthy cuticles also encourage healthy nail growth.

Step 1

Step one is all about coating and building your nails with strength. The build powder and base coat liquid provide your nails with a strong foundation for your manicure. Apply product to your nails one nail at a time.

Coat & Build

  1. Apply Nailboo base coat liquid to three-fourths of your nail.
  2. Dip the nail into Nailboo build powder.
  3. Tap and brush the nail to remove excess powder.
  4. Repeat steps one through three on each nail.

Next, you’ll apply the pigmented dip powder. Lilac Attack gives your nails a sweet purple base. 

  1. Apply Nailboo base coat liquid to your entire nail
  2. Dip your nail into Nailboo Lilac Attack 
  3. Tap and brush the nail to remove excess powder.
  4. Repeat steps one through three on each nail.

Now let’s add some shine! Nailboo Solar Shimmer adds a serious touch of glam to your nails. 

  1. Apply Nailboo base coat liquid to your nail.
  2. Dip a small nail brush into the Nailboo Solar Shimmer powder and sprinkle it onto the tip of your nail to create the ombre effect.
  3. Repeat steps one and two on each nail.

Step 2

Step two activates the dip powder by hardening it and sealing the color into your nails.

  1. Apply a thin layer of Nailboo activator liquid onto your nail.
  2. Let your nails dry thoroughly.
  3. File and buff your nails with the four-way nail file.
  4. Apply a second layer of Nailboo activator liquid.
  5. Allow your nails to completely dry.

Step 3

Step three adds the glossy shine to complete your manicure. The Nailboo top coat is necessary, so don’t miss this step.

  1. Apply Nailboo top coat to each nail.
  2. Allow your nails to dry completely.
  3. Apply a second layer of Nailboo top coat to your nail.
  4. Allow your nails to completely dry.

There you have it: beautiful shimmering glitter ombre nail. There’s no need to go to the nail salon for professional-looking nails because you can do your own nails at home with Nailboo.
