Hi everyone!! I hope you all are having a great weekend! I want to start off by saying that I am really excited to tell you all about this new product I found. I also want to let you new that this post is in no way associated with the brand Rossi, I found their nail powders on Instagram and my mom actually bought it for me for my birthday. Okay so back to the product review! Like I said I found this product on Instagram and I normally don’t act upon product I see on social media, but this nail powder really intrigued me. I am someone who has my nails painted like 95% of the time. While I do love getting a mani/pedi, the price just adds up to keep my nails looking nice. Most of the time I tend to just paint my nails my self at home and get them done at a salon before I go away to treat myself. When I do get them done I tend to get gel polish on my nails. Something that made me really interested in the Rossi Nails product was that the starter kit for the dip powder and polish was only $35, which is a little more than one gel manicure, so to me the price definitely made sense. I was a little apprehensive because the price was very low and it came with the base coat, activator, topcoat, and colored powder.
After doing some research and watching some YouTube video reviews of the product, I decided that I would give it a try. The trial kit comes with a choice of three colors; I ended up buying the polish and powder separately (which ended up only being a few dollars more) because I wanted to find a specific light pink color as close to Essie’s Fiji. My mom ended up getting it for me and giving it to me for my birthday, so when I finally got it I couldn’t wait to try it. Just a side note, a lot of the reviews mentioned that the product worked but you really kind of had to be pretty good at painting your nails. I have been painting my own nails for a long time now, so I have become pretty good at doing it. I do get what the reviews are talking about. If you are used to painting your nails yourself, than I think you will love this product! I have already used it twice, and I absolutely love. People think that my nails were done in a salon, and when I tell them I did them myself everyone wants to know what kind of polish it is and where I got it. I know that some nail salons do the dip powder manicures, however none of the ones near me have it. I feel like the polish is a mix between gel and acrylic
The process of doing the dip powder is pretty simple, but it does take a little longer than just a normal manicure. You paint the base coat on your nails and dip you nails into the powder. The instructions say that you can do this one or two more times, however I found that two times was a perfect amount for my nails and three times was almost too much. Once you have dipped them and brushed off the excess powder, you apply one coat of the activator. Once that dries for a minute or two, it is time to file. Because the polish is a powder, it is necessary to file, shape and buff the little bumps out. Next you apply another coat of the activator, and once that is all dry you add two coats or the topcoat. To remove the polish it is the same with any gel or acrylic polish. I like to use acetone on a cotton ball and wrap it on my nails using a small piece of foil.
Over all I do really love this product and I can’t wait to buy more colors of the powder!!
This is great to know and is also the only one that really seems to talk about it without any bias. Thanks! 🙂
I did my first set last week and I love it. I agree that you need to be capable of painting your own nails well – otherwise you’ll end up with uneven coverage, and even maybe powder on your skin. Thanks for blogging your experience!
What color did you get? I love Fiji as well…please share name of color 🙏🏼
Hi! The shade I got is F104-Holiday.
I also enjoyed the product but with my re-order it took over a week and still hasn’t been sent to me. Also there is not a person on their “24 hour” hotline. It directs you to email which I did yesterday with no contact back! Too bad I did like the kit but now I won’t give money to people who falsified their add….
Hi Heather! Aw that stinks about your re-order. I hope you were able to resolve the issue, and get you order by now. I personally haven’t ordered from them in over a year, but I have been hearing mixed things about the shipping and company! So sad because I did really love the product.
I curios to know how long did it take you to receive the product? And how was the customer service. With the consumer complaints and their business reviews would you still order from this company?
I ordere $161 worth of product from them on 4/15/20 and they said it shipped out however DHL delivery is still waiting to receive it from them to ship to me! I feel they’re a scam!
Should watch the YouTube video of
Junk free mama with her honest review of Rossi nails and the shipping nightmare! They also kept deleting her Instagram comments of where she politely asked about her shipment. It too over 30 day for them to ship it out! Said they were a USA based business however it came from Korea in her video.
Hi Sarah! I don’t remember exactly how long it took as I ordered from Rossi Nails over a year ago. I don’t think it was an extremely long time. That’s not great that they are deleting people’s comments. I hope that your shipping delay is due to the delays happening everywhere in the world with everything that is happening. I wish I could be more help, but I haven’t ordered from them since my order I talked about here and like I said that was over a year ago. I am not sure if maybe the company changed since than.
Hi Sarah…I ordered my first order at the end of March and received it Mon, 4/20, almost 3 weeks, just tried it today went on smooth and I know the tips from my manicurist so all is good. Just hope it lasts as long, and if it does well worth the wait in these hard times.
I submitted my order on 4/6/2020 and I finally received it on 5/5/2020. They did respond to my customer service email and said if I didn’t have my products by 5/14, they would refund my money and still let me keep the product. I think the delay is just with the postal service. Mine also said DHL, but I believe it came from USPS. I suggest you email them, but it will likely take about a month to receive your products. I love my nails, so it was worth the wait.
