Removing our dip powder nails can be a real pain. Nobody likes the process and its even more frustrating when you wait so much time and the product doesn't go away.
There are some steps that you should follow for a successful dip powder removal. Let's get into it.
1. File/Buff the shiny top
Even if you already know this rule, filing your nails to get rid of the shine is one of the most important step. The shiny AVVA Top is very strong and it's meant to resist in time. It's like a protective shield for your manicure. Depending on how many layers of AVVA Top you applied, filling it all out can take a bit longer than you think.
The more filling the better at this stage, especially if you have a lot of layers of product on. The only time you should stop filling is when you get close to your natural nail.
2. Soak your nails in acetone
Of course you will use acetone, it's the most easy and fast way, but when you do it, try to soak your wipes in it. This way it will be more efficient. Especially if you have a lot of layers of dip powder on your nails.
3. Wait for at least 15 minutes
The timing has to be always right. We recommend for you to wait at least 15 minutes with the AVVA clips on. These clips will just ensure the wipes will stay still on your nails while you wait for it to do its job. It's crucial for the acetone wipes to stay still and work their magic!
4. Remove the dip powder
You waited for 15 minutes and now you took the clips and wipes off. The dip powder should come off super easy at this point. Still, if for some reason it doesn't come off easily, by all means do not force it. It will only cause damage to your nails. Try to file some more (avoiding your natural nail) and leave in the acetone for 5 more minutes.
5. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
This should be your mantra for the next days. Your nails need some cuticle oil to get them all hydrated and nice again. Try to do this everyday and you'll notice the results.
