Some of you may remember that I was a huge fan of the Form-a-Nail acrylic system. I even did a post about them in 2015. I was telling the truth - they were awesome and I used them the past two years. Then I caught a YouTube video a few months ago talking about the " easiest DIY nail system " that seemed too good to be true.
It was a dip powder and I'd tried the store versions. All of them. Ugh. They were not very easy, extremely messy, fell apart quickly, and never gave me professional results. So, of course, I was skeptical. I decided I had to try this new system out myself.
I am SO impressed.
These are nail sets I created using the Kiara Sky Dip Powder System. Nice, right? What if I told you it also took me less than an hour AND I didn't have to use a drill to even them out? AWESOME. If you're a "see it when I believe it" type of person (me too), then check out my video below. I walk you through the process, step by step.

So, now you know how easy it is. What about lifting? I have had my current set on (except for the one I replace in the video) for about 3 weeks. No lifting at all. I do have grow out space that I'll need to fill soon, but I have a feeling that will be even easier than the original set. I'll try to make an update video when it's time to fill.
