  1. I bought a kit, but the instruction to the kit I bought was kind of confusing, so the first time I did it, it was a hot mess. Super thick and uneven and the next day they snapped right out lol The second time I did it, it was less of a hot mess, but still a hot mess nonetheless lol Then I decided to get them done professionally and I watched the woman do it and was better able to understand the process, so I tried a third time and it came out really well. Not perfect like the nail salon but quite impressive for someone who isn’t a professional. I went back to the salon to get the soaked off and the lady was impressed with my skills hehe It takes some practice and eventually you’ll get the hang of it. The best part is that it doesn’t need any lights to harden and it takes literally 2 minutes to completely dry. The only pain in the ass part is getting them off, but if you’ve ever taken out gel color, then this will be a breeze because if you leave it on acetone and cotton balls and let it soak for a few minutes, they slide right off—as opposed to the gel color that you have to peel them off and poke at the nail with different objects and then file them down. But I do wish they’d find a way to do these damn nail colors without having it be so annoying to take them off. A girl can wish hehe

  2. I have done hauls for over ten years and this kit is terrible it peels off. Who on earth is able to peel of their acrylic nails?

  3. I know how the dip color is eventually removed but how can you use that removal method on acrylic nails? Won't the prolonged use of acetone to remove the color cause the acrylics to fall off, too??

  4. If your nails appears thick after dipping. Start by applying the base half way the nail and dip in the clear gel then go back with the base and cover the entire nail and dip again into the clear powder. When you dip into the color your nails won't come out thick.
    These nails are thick because the application is not correct.

  5. I always learn so much from your videos but I must say, you do some amazing work with acrylic and the dipping system seems to take all the personality out of the art form. I am striving for excellence and you are the beginning of my yellow brick road.

  6. I wonder if this would be ok to use with nude press ons? I hate permenant nails i had a bad experience where my real nail cracked painful af ams since then I used designed press ons or nudes & paint & design them myself

  7. Cringed when she filed before activating and cringed when she dipped her colored nail into the clear😭 you contaminated it

  8. I love all your videos they are so good and I learn on every video something new that so great. Thank you so much and greetings from Germany

  9. So… Ive been biting my nails since i was 5 yrs old… 30 this year…

    And lately ive benleb getting into getting my nails done to get that horribpe habit and it def helps but I cannot afford them so I do my own nails which people always think i got them done at the salon 2 of the main reasons i dont get them. Done at a salon its because one: i cannot afford it hahahaha amd two: im so ashamed of how bad they were but now its more of a personal ritual that I do this… And Im so happy about it because your videos have helped so much 💕

  10. Thank you for explaining this process so i could actually understand how to do my own nails at home . So many videos they do it so fast adn you cant follow . Great job

  11. Could you please do another dip powder video, using Nicole Diary products. I love your videos and they explain so clearly what to do. Thanks, and please, please, please do another dip powder video!!!

  12. I see the sparkles got on your base, hope it don't ruin. Maybe back up throw away brush would be good for sparkle
    And looks a bit thick for Suzie nails but I get the concept and what your purpose was. I know we can always file thinner

  13. I love watchin you do nails, it's so relaxing & you're so beautiful, & very soft spoken, you explain every little detail. Btw what is the name of the color on your pointed finger? The purplish lavender, that color is so beautiful.

  14. I know your a nail tech but you have no idea what your doing with dip powder. Like at all. You did almost everything wrong. Just an fyi for people that are new to dip powder. Im pretty sure she's learned now because she's probably practiced and this is an old video but she needs to update. This was all wrong. I love you and your videos Suzie but your teaching people wrong things.

  15. After getting gel/shellac polish on my nails for over 5 years, I switched to dip and was SHOCKED. My nails last for over a month, they never break, they stay shiny, and never chip. It's double the price of shellac at my salon but sooooo worth it. Dip for life!

  16. No,thank you, I was able to follow each step. My nails turned out, not to bad. Love you videos. Thanks.

  17. Hello could you advice me I have always had good nails but lately they are flaking and splitting I’ve tried everything and high end products I went into a beauty salon and they recommended I should have SNS dipping powder is this safe on natural nails and will it help I’ve never had anything put on my nails apart from nail strengthens please could you let me know your thoughts 💭 a nail addict that I am 💅🏻 thank you 😊

  18. I'll stick to my gel polish. These are too thick and lumpy. Plus way too much time. Just my two cents worth.

  19. i have a question im not a nail tech just curios,whats the difference between acrylic powder and dipping powder?and can u dip acrylic powder as well? or make ur own dipping powder with acrylic ?

  20. Can u use dip powder on press ons to make them thicker and sturdier?

    Thanks in advance to anyone that will answer 😄❤

  21. I hate long nails so much and I’m an ultimate tom boy but bloody hell I love watching Suzie do nails! Thank you for another sweet vid 🙏

  22. I never do my nails I never go get them done I know nothing about nails but after watching this video I got to try it and also learn about hypergamy and other side of the things I never knew thank you so much

  23. Hi I really enjoy watching all your videos have learned a lot. My question is about the dipping powders. You said that they cannot be used with gels. Why can't they be used with gel?

  24. I LOVE nail dip kits- i own two- and they are amazing, way less time consuming then going to the nail salon, i apply it to my natural nail- it was a learning curve to get them the way i like them specially around the cuticle but now i cnt wait to do them

  25. Can you do a video on how to remove the dipping powder off the natural nail? I tried soaking but it never all comes off so I end up filing with my e-file and it always burns

  26. I just want to rectify something you said, indeed you can’t lengthen the nail with a form but the dip system can be used as a nail enhancement not only to cover natural nails. If you want you can go check on Instagram this page @roxee_naiils_addict she is only doing dip powder.

  27. Been doing various dip systems with my clients for at least 20 years now, and I don’t recommend shoving you nail into the jar like you showed here, as product can get too thick, and pushed towards the cuticle! I learned to “ lay” my clients nail into the powder instead, that way, you don’t get any empty spaces or mega thick bumpy application. Many clients wants the same color for weeks, so you won’t want them too thick. I also had a little bottle where I’d sprinkle the product on, if needed for a second layer. Then you should have next to no filing ! I also used the different types of activators in between coats, let it set and do a second dip. Most activators are sprayed on, and the nail, is done instantly ! Just tips I’ve learned over time. And these systems are not new – neither is coloured acrylic. I never used the actual container to dip into, since drops of glue will sometimes be left in your powder, wasting lots of product, and not maybe the most hygienic way to do a clients nails ? I would drizzle enough out on a shallow dish instead.

  28. I have steered clear of dip because it does not seem sanitary to have other peoples cuticles in before me. I may try it now though.

  29. Excellent tutorial!! I've been dipping for over a year now and have used a few different liquid systems. Never have I been told to follow the last activator step so quickly with top coat! In fact I'm told that when I have topcoat issues it's because my activator wasn't dry fully. And to be very careful not to contaminate my top coat with activator! Is this unique to Joya Mia's liquids??

  30. I love your videos and your knowledge and skill. For people who watch, but that was incorrect when you said that dip powder is meant to be used on Natural Nails and not for extensions are tips. That was where you were incorrect they can be used to add length. There's also a proper technique on how to build a nail with dip powder. Just go watch SNS tutorials to see what I mean. And another thing dip powder is basically in the acrylic family. The glue is your acrylic liquid and dipping powder is your acrylic powder. Chemically acrylics taking time to cure dip being instant. But basically it's acrylic and in strength too

  31. I guess you could say dip powder is a diet acrylic as the bond that forms isn't as strong and adhered to on your nail bed as acrylic is Is, but almost as hard in strength it easier to remove. And apply. Gel, resin, liquid powder acrylics and dip all contain an acrylates polymer.

  32. Wonderful video.  Today was my 3rd try dipping on short natural nails.  First time disaster.  2nd time not too bad.  This time it (almost) looks like I had them done at salon.  Even my husband thought so.I need to use it for strength on my thin nails.  I'm too much of a DIY home remodeler, chef and on my computer full time to have long acrylics.    I think dip nails are the solution!

  33. I wanted to click out this video but her voice got me so relaxed and just so smooth work she does… I watched a lot of her videos now for relaxation she's amazing at what does too…

  34. Hey hun love your work, wish I could do nails like you.Can you do a taper square nail shape tutorial please! Keep up the good work💪🏽🙌🏽👍🏽

  35. Please Help!!
    Ok maybe you can help me.. I went to a salon with beautiful nails and they put a regular polish on that lasted approximately a week. I went in a week later and they used a gel. Again3 weeks later had a gel put on again. My nails starting breaking.
    I finally had to cut all my nails off.
    What is the difference between all these different nail techniques? I mean it used to be just going in and having fake nails put on and then you would go bk every couple of weeks for new growth and a new color. Now you have gel, acrylic, etc etc. I heard they can put nails on and add the dipping powder and this will allow your nails to grow out and your nail underneath won’t be damaged. It will continue to grow and you can eventually take the fake nail off?? I’m all confused. Maybe I have been living in Nader a rock.. lol Nahh I just don’t understand all the techniques. What’s the best to use when I have my own grown out nails again or if I want to have a set of nails put on…?

  36. I love your speaking voice and clean spirit, I'm at work and this tutoria, which I may or may not try and replicate was very relaxing….Thank you 🙂

  37. Color dip systems have been my natural nails saving grace! They're just soo thin and weak and have been damn near impossible to grow long. Don't be discouraged to try. You can get a natural looking shape with a bit of filing so as your nails grow out it won't look funny or catch your hair. I've never used the clear powder as a base. I don't think it is necessary. The color powder is so highly pigmented two coats (would use clear powder over sparkly powder) is enough.

  38. Hello Suzie, I am very frustrated. My natural nails are so thin and broke here and there, so I tried gel polish to support my natural nails. Not thick enough for me and I don't feel safe. So next I try polygel, that's to thick, looks so faky on my natural nails and also it's so hard for me to apply this stuff…. And now Im looking for dip powder. My Questions, is it unhealthy? If seen a video from a girl and she said that dip powder is horrible and unhealthy and things like this. Is the Base glue? I don't know what to do. All I want is that my natural nails are a bit thicker and safer. Greetings from Germany. PS: You are so a beautiful Person, so relaxing, I love your videos.

  39. random question that I dont know will be answered…do you recommend a clear coat over the glitter nail for longer wear? Or does it matter?

  40. Does anyone else find with nail techs, that they get SUPER aggressive when tapping off the excess dipping powder!? 🙁

  41. There is nothing quick about this lol. I enjoyed watching you do this but I would much rather pay someone to do this for me lol. This has to be very costly. I have natural nails and use color street nail strips… so easy. Thank you for doing the video, you have a very soothing voice and tone.

  42. I saw a way to fix that… putting the clear in the beginning only on the upper part of your nail… meaning leave the cuticle line and that would prevent so much buildup at the cuticle line 💕

  43. This is my first time seeing you here, and I just love you, you remind me of my mother! I am about to start going through a lot more of your videos!
