Our 25 Favorite Dip Powder Nail Color Ideas
There's something particularly frustrating about discovering a chipped nail after recently having had a manicure. (Once it happens, you know it's only downhill from there.) And as much as we love gel manicures, the term "no-chip" is occasionally a misnomer.
That's why dip powder manicures—also known as SNS manicures—have changed the game. While SNS manicures were technically "invented" in , the technique didn't enter the public lexicon until years later. (And you yourself may not have found out about them until recently.)
Dip powder manicures are known for their durability and resistance to chipping. The technique involves literally dipping the nails into colored powder, while brushing on layers of bonder as an adhesive for the powder, before using a clear sealant on top. They work for both natural nails and extended ones.
And while you might think the nail polish colors lined up in the nail salon are tempting, the options you'll find for dip powder span the color spectrum, too—and more importantly, they'll likely last twice as long on your nails. Below, find 20 dip powder nail color ideas that'll inspire you to dive into dip.
There's nothing fresher than soft white nails, year-round. Plus, with dip manicures, lighter hues tend to look more saturated—aka, you won't have to worry about your nail color peeking through a sheer, light shade like white.
Put it in Neutral
The perfect swath of neutrals.
Pick a bold hue like this minty green that'll shine through perfectly with dip powder, which usually lends itself to more saturated, pigmented hues.
This mani makes us think of a lavender cream latte.
Cobalt Blue Dip
Fewer shades are more striking than cobalt.
Two different shades create a cool, flawless ombré. It's like a modern update on a French manicure, if you will.
Don't be afraid to mix and match colors: You can achieve these nautical-feeling nails with different shades of blue, teal, and green.
This pinky nude gradient is perfect all year 'round.
Most dip salons carry a number of glitter hues, so the exact color choice is yours.
Feeling sparkly? Say "yes" to bold, allover sparkle—the process is the same, just with a sparkle-infused dip powder formula rather than a solid hue or subtly glitter one. Count us in.
Deep Coral Dip
This coral shade flatters every skin tone.
Light Pink With Glitter Accent
Dip powder permits creative nail ideas, too, so you definitely won't miss polish or gel—and we love this subtle light pink manicure with a slightly sparkly accent nail.
Of course, there's nothing quite like a classic black shade—especially when it looks this shiny and lustrous, thanks to the glossy sealant on top.
Yes, this color is literally called "Hot Tamale"—and if you have a hankering for an ultra-bright hue that works for every skin tone and season, we think we've found the one for you.
Take the pinks and whites of a traditional French and turn them into a gradient across all five nails with this look.
Burnt Orange Dip
Suitable year 'round, but perfect for fall.
A dip powder shade with some slight shimmer will have your nails looking chic and subtle—rather than overly sparkly.
We always love earth tone-inspired nails—and this neutral, "sand dune" shade is our new favorite.
These nail color is sunshine in a bottle.
A stark white that you won't have to worry about sheerness with? Yes, please. The multiple layers of dip powder prevent those pesky "I-didn't-think-this-color-would-be-so-faint" moments.
Pretty in Pink
Calling all girly girls: Pick varying shades of pink for a "monochrome" manicure you'll be showing off at every turn.
Embrace a chic pastel shade—like luxe lavender—knowing the pigmentation with a dip manicure will come out perfectly.
As far as we're concerned, you can't go wrong with an eye-catching electric blue.
Depending on the sealant you use, you can go for a glossy, lustrous finish, or a matte one. Here, we think the matte finish complements the purple shade and acrylic extensions perfectly.
Alternate between a glitter powder and a solid one for a monochrome manicure that still feels fresh and exciting.

ICYMI, nail color has come a long way in recent years. No longer are we reserved only to easily chipped polish, potentially damaging acrylics, or UV-set gel manicures (though we’re not saying we don’t love those options, too!). There’s a new nail color trend in town, and it’s definitely here to stay; We’re talking about the dip powder manicure.
What is a dip powder manicure?
Dip powder manicures are longer-lasting than their gel counterparts (they can typically last up to one month), and they also don’t require any UV light to harden. They also yield similar, even-coated results as acrylic manicures—but since there is no harsh UV light or fake nail tips involved, dip powder manis are also said to be less damaging to your nails in the long-term.
Here's how to give yourself a dip powder manicure at-home
This is how the at-home process typically works. First, you’ll want to apply a base coat onto clean, freshly buffed nails (this helps to smooth out any ridges so that the powder can coat the nail evenly). Next, instead of painting the nail color on with a brush, as with a traditional or gel manicure, you’ll dip your nail into a pot of pigmented powder. Then, simply tap or brush off any excess powder (many kits include a buff brush) and repeat the process one more time to ensure an even coat. After two go-rounds of dipping, you’ll paint on a clear activator polish. This activator turns the colored powder into a glossy lacquer and essentially bonds it onto the nail itself. Once that’s dry, you’ll apply a clear coat of polish as a top coat, and voila! Your DIY dip powder manicure is done, and it should last at least a few weeks (or more). Of course, these are general guidelines—always follow the instructions of the specific kit you’re using, as each one may differ slightly.
How do you remove dip powder manicures?
Again here, you’ll want to refer to the instructions included in whichever kit you’ve purchased. However, dip powder manicures generally always have to be soaked off with acetone—do not, under any circumstances, try to peel or pick off the color. Doing so will literally rip off the top layer of your actual nail. Ouch!
Instead, your best bet is to wrap each nail in an acetone-soaked cotton ball (or round) or dip it into in a small bowl of acetone, for at least ten minutes. In order for dip powder color to be removed, the bond between the lacquer and the nail must be dissolved. The best part is, though this soaking process may seem tedious, once the color is dissolved it should wipe off easily and cleanly (no scraping required).
You can also remove with clippers
Invest in some nail polish remover clips to make the process easier (and less messy). While many manicurists will admit that, ideally, you should really leave dip powder manicures (and their subsequent removal) to the professionals, but monthly trips to the nail salon can get expensive, and more and more companies are offering affordable at-home powder nail kits for novices and experts alike. Below, we’ve rounded up 14 of the best of them.

Some helpful notes on how to add glitter to dip powder nails
- Make sure your dip layers are fully dry
Give the Step 2: Base Dip Liquid and the glitter powder a little more time to set a little longer between layers. Otherwise, they might smear a bit when you go dust them off.
- Add a thin layer of the Base & Finish Powderbefore applying glitter powders
Pieces of glitter tend to stick everywhere and can be quite challenging to remove. But if you have a layer of B&F at the bottom, it makes it less messy and less likely for the glitter to stick all over your nail bed.
- Set the glitter nice and flat onto your nails
When working with chunky glitter, some people choose to place their finger upside down (like when you do marble manis), so that the glitter sticks to the nail flat. You can still dip into chunky glitter or sprinkle 'em on your mani, but we recommend you gently press down glitter flat onto the nail with a Jelly Pusher or orangewood stick.
- Apply the Step 3: Activator Dip Liquidliberally
Sometimes it takes a bit for the Activator to penetrate through the glitter and down to the acrylic powders. That's why when you're applying your first coat before filing & buffing your nails, we recommend swiping on a generous amount of this dip nail liquid.
- Don't skip the Base & Finish Powderas the finishing touch
Some people choose to not use Base & Finish Powder as their last layer of dip. When it comes to glitter powders though, you should definitely use B&F to encapsulate the glitter and prevent them from being damaged when filing/buffing your nails.
