Follow this tutorial to learn a dip powder nail design. This design features blue and white acrylic nails.

I used false medium stiletto-tip nails, but you could certainly do the same nail art on your natural nails. And of course, choose whatever color you love best!

Tools and materials:

  • Acrylic base coat
  • Blue and white acrylic nail dip powder
  • Nail dip activator
  • Clear top coat
  • False stiletto-tip nails (optional)
  • Muffin cups for nail powder
