Nail powders - when will they be useful?

Nail powders are products that will perfectly decorate your nails and allow you to give them character in a very short amount of time. There is a multitude of benefits to this as you might already know! It should be stated that the powders for gel nails differs in the primary effects they can create. Maybe you want a Mirror effect, or a holographic one or maybe just a slight shiny glow? Well, we'll tell you a little more about all these effects later in this blog. So, what else is the difference between coloured nail powders? One being the size of the particles. The powder can appear as tiny and delicate particles, like a powder, or as colourful, small flakes. Regardless of which powder type you choose, your manicure will receive a whole new dimension.

The powders for gel nails will work well when you apply them to all nails. Patterns made with powder for nail decorations. Yes! This is a great alternative that allows you to create phenomenal decoration! The product is efficient, so you can create many styles with it.

How to apply nail powder?

The nail application process is very simple, but just like any procedure, this one needs the right tools. The necessary tool that will collect the powder and spread it over the surface of the nail is the Semilac SemiStick Sponge.

Before starting the application, you must decide which powder you want to apply to your nails. This is extremely important because each type of powder has a different application purpose. Some of them, e.g., the galaxy effect powder, which you can read about, are universal and can be applied both on the dispersion layer and on the top no wipe layer, or on the black colour 031 Semilac Black Diamond, which does not have this layer. Thus, a different result can be obtained.

At Semilac, we also have nail powders, which are applied only to the dispersion coating or only to the no-wipe hardened nails. You don't know what the said dispersion layer is? It is nothing more than a sticky layer that forms after the polish is cured in the lamp.

Prepare your nails for a standard gel polish manicure. Then apply the base, then the selected colour of gel polish. Make sure that the selected powder can be applied to the polish, or you need to finish the styling with a Top No Wipe. Then start the application. Using the applicator, apply the powder to the nail and use circular movements to spread it over the surface. The powder should be carefully rubbed into the surface. The SemiStick sponge will help you in this task, with which you will perfectly cover your nails with powder.

How to get a Semilac Flash Holo?

Do you like sparkling nails and are you looking for an original solution? If so, you'll love another type of powder for gel nails. There is a holographic effect in front of you. Holo, i.e., thousands of small, shimmering particles surrounded by pink, blue or silver colours. Like other Semilac powder, you can apply them in different colours, thus creating a lot of styles. If you are looking for an original method for a charming manicure, choose the powder with a holographic effect.

Semilac Flash Holo powder can be applied to products without a dispersion layer, i.e., on any colour of gel polish, which is covered with a hardened no wipe top, or on the 031 Semilac Black Diamond colour.

How to get a Semilac Flash Mermaid?

Does the mermaid-fairy-tail still arouse sentiment in you? With this gel powder you can transfer this sentiment to your manicure. Meet the Semilac Flash Mermaid powder, which imitates beautifully shimmering mermaid scales. The fabulous particles of golden and orange shades are a great idea to complement any style. Semilac Flash Mermaid powder should be applied to products with a dispersion layer, e.g., on any hardened colour of gel polish.

Semilac Flash Sunlight Effect

This type of nail powder is a great proposition when you do not know which colours to choose. These powders change their colour depending on the light! A subdued manicure on cloudy days and a clear colour on sunny days! Isn't that a miraculous solution? Semilac Flash Sunlight Effect powders should be applied to products with a dispersion layer, e.g., on the hardened colour of gel polish. We recommend application on bright colours of gel polishes.
