I Don’t Like the Tomicca Nail Dip Powder Set
I should have listened to the negative reviews. I thought the positive reviews and my experience doing nails (LED gel polish and poly gel) would help me with this. Unfortunately, the Tomicca Dip Powder Nail Kit from Amazon is not the value-for-money solution you’re looking for 😿 The kit is easy enough to use, although I had to switch a few steps around (see my previous post on this set). It was AU$49.99 so we’ll-priced, and the products all came in good condition, which I was grateful for. The first result I got with this set was okay, and I was curious to try again when I needed a fresh set. Mind you, the liquid products have a strong smell so don’t leave them under your nose for long! That’s when the real trouble started 🤦🏻♀️ This stuff is nearly impossible to get off, and it hurts to do so! I, of course, buffed the nail surface to rough it up and break the seal of the top coat. I then tried 100% acetone on bits of cotton wool, and wrapped my nails in foil, like you do with LED gel polish. No luck. I then tried soaking in a container of acetone, and still no luck. Once dry again, I used my electric file to try and grind the product off. This was extremely slow-going, and I couldn’t turn my file up any higher after a certain point because it burnt my nail beds 🔥 So you have to go on a lower revolution speed, which makes the grinding super slow. It took more than an hour to grind off most of the product and I actually left a little on each nail because I was scared to go too close to my nail beds. Honestly, if you have any tips for this stuff, let me know, as I’d like to salvage my $50 if possible, but otherwise, I will not be using this kit again! I think it’s better to save up a little more money and go with a more reputable brand, preferably something that is stocked in good quality beauty salons! Has anyone tried the Azure Beauty nail dip powder kit, and what was your experience like? Do you think it is better or worse compared to the Tomicca kit that I used? 💅🏻

sglassenI honestly find all brands are the same. it's all about getting the technique right it took me dozens of tries before i nailed it. check out my most recent post. and I never remove mine with acetone, I use oil and cuticle cutters to gently crack them off when they start getting chipped. usually I can feel the edges getting lose and then over 24hrs I oil them up a bunch and they usually lift off on their own with minimal nail damage.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
