True salon junkies are familiar with powder nail process better known as “dipped” nails, but for those powder virgins out there, allow me to explain: Apply two thin coats of a base polish, let it dry, then dip an applicator into the power and buff it onto the nail, giving your nails that holographic shine. Finish it off with a top coat, and you’ll have a salon-quality mani without the pricetag. ($15; amazon.com)
