If you have short ones or are guilty of biting them, never fear, you can still have long, stylish nails using dip powders. All you need to do is add tips. The process is very similar to adding length for acrylic or gel nails. The natural nails are shaped and buffed; then, the tip is glued on. The great thing about choosing tips is you can pick any style you want. There are more natural shapes such as round and oval, or go all out and pick a coffin, stiletto, or lipstick shape. Once the glue is dried, the tip is filed and blended with the natural nail. Then a couple of coats of clear powder are added to smooth out the shape and add thickness and durability. After that’s complete, you can continue as usual, with whatever colors your heart desires.
