Dipped Nails Obsession

Happy July, everybody! It’s been a busy summer for me so far and it’s been hard to find the time to break away and just write.

I love the unpredictability of summer. The ever-changing work schedule. The spontaneous trips across state lines. Somehow, the most consistent thing in my life right now is my nails. About a month ago, I decided to hop on the dip powder nail train and it has become my new obsession.

How it works

The nail technician alternates between layers of a sealant, glue-like substance and a pigmented powder of your desired color.

How long it lasts

2-4 weeks without ANY chips. Ever. Just nail growth. I swear this polish is impossible to chip or mess up. The only reason for getting them done again is because your natural nail has grown and is visible at the bottom, or you want a change of color.

Why I love it

Life is pretty hectic right now and I’ve been going nonstop. Getting my nails done gives me time to relax and practice self care and makes me feel pretty and feminine. I don’t have time to paint chipped polish every week or even every couple days, and these nails last FOREVER.

Here’s a few photos of the colors I’ve tried so far:
