Review: Flocking powder

Hi ladies! I have an exciting review to share with you all today - I recently received some newly stocked products from Born Pretty Store and here are my thoughts on one of them. First up is the flocking powder in 'sky blue'. I decided to apply this over Eclipse #706 Bikini blue so I started off with two coats of the polish. Whilst the base polish was still wet, I sprinkled the flocking powder over the nail. Once it was covered, I patted down the powder to ensure it was firmly stuck onto the nail.

Note that my ring finger is not covered very well - my base polish had dried already and I learned (quickly!) to apply another coat before continuing with the rest of my nails :P

Due to the fluffy texture of the powder, I didn't apply a top coat. I assume these nails will be suitable for a short wear time only as they powder will probably eventually drop off without the protection of top coat. I really like that it's something different and can spice up a manicure which you are getting bored of :) The flocking powder can be purchased from Born Pretty Store for $5.80. It comes in a container of 13g so you'll definitely have lots to play with!

Born Pretty Store offers free shipping and you can also use my discount code PIJ61 for a further 10% off your total.

What do you think of this type of nail art? Are you a fan?

Thanks for reading!

  2. Ooh, hope you get yours soon! And definitely make sure your base polish is still wet enough for the powder to stick to the nail ;)

  9. I haven't tried that because I was sure it'd ruin the fluffy texture. I'll write a post about it next time I try :)
