How do you remove dip powder? OPI Powder Perfection can be removed using a minimal ling and soak off technique. Follow the OPI Powder Perfection removal system and Step by Steps for best results and damage-free removal.

You’ll Need:

  • Swiss Blue Liquid Hand Soap
  • Swiss Hand Guard Antiseptic Handwash Gel Expert Touch Nail Wipe
  • Expert Touch Lacquer Remover
  • Expert Touch Remover Wrap
  • Expert Touch Hand Mitt
  • EDGE 180 File
  • Reusable Cuticle Stick

Removal Tips:

  • Make sure to file off as much of the top layer as possible before soaking.
  • If OPI Powder Perfection does not remove easily, re-saturate the pad and soak for 5 more minutes.
  • Lightly file each nail with the EDGE 180 File to remove left over product.
  • Do not use metal implements or drills to remove.

Step 1

Wash your hands and have clients wash their hands with Swiss Blue Liquid Hand Soap. Sanitize hands with Swiss Hand Guard Antiseptic Handwash Gel.

Step 2

Use the EDGE 180 File to break up the top layer of OPI Powder Perfection. Do not let the file touch the natural nail.


Step 3

Fold an Expert Touch Nail Wipe into quarters. Saturate the pad of an Expert Touch Removal Wrap and the folded Expert Touch Nail Wipe with Expert Touch Lacquer Remover.

Step 4

Place wrap under finger so pad and nail wipe will wrap over the top of the fingernail. Wrap securely around the finger and allow to soak for 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 5

Optional: Place an Expert Touch Hand Mitt over each hand and cover with a towel for added heat during removal.

Step 6

After 20 minutes, use a gentle twisting motion to remove the wraps. Use a Reusable Cuticle Stick to gently remove any remaining OPI Powder Perfection. Have the client wash their hands with Swiss Blue Liquid Hand Soap and proceed with the desired service.
