As a young woman from The Bronx, getting your nails done is part of the overall culture. But from my neighborhood to Billie Eilish’s, nail, gel and acrylic nails can be found. And in the midst of a quarantine, the Kiara Sky Color Dip Powder Starter Kit has turned my home office into a beauty salon (for my mom and sister that is).

Don’t let gel polish scare you away with this set. The dip powder starter kit is free of any kind of UV lamps. The kit includes a bonding polish, a base, seal protect, a top coat, nourish oil, a brush saver, a natural powder, and a clear powder. And, of course, there are three signature color powders in nude, red and gold glitter.

The kit retails for $129 on Amazon as it’s a professional-grade nail kit. However, it’s already got 4 stars and this kit doesn’t damage your nails or use the same harsh chemicals that are found in similar nail care products you’d find in a professional salon.

Listed as one of Amazon’s Choice products, one shopper said it was “worth the investment.

“I figured I could get my own powder set and do my nails at home so I could avoid the drill that’s making my nails so thin. So far I’ve used it 3 times and I LOVE it! It’s so easy to use and the colors that come in the kit are great.”

Another customer of the kit noted that the kit was tricky the first go around, but also said is saving on frequenting the nail salon.

“I absolutely love this product! I started doing my own nails at home to save money and this set has made it, not only easy but, fun. The first round was a learning process, the second looks amazing and I couldn’t be more pleased”.

Whether you’re someone who’s used to always getting a fill-in or a fresh set of clicking acrylic tips, you probably haven’t gone this long without your nails done. As a pick me up, the Kiara Sky Color Dip Powder Starter Kit makes up for lost time in the chair.
