I was so excited on Christmas morning to find a set of flocking powder under the tree! I decided to go with a Christmassy feel for my first try at using the powder so painted my nails a deep red (Tate by Nails Inc) and topped them with the red powder. The powder is really easy to use. You just pour it over a wet coat of nail polish, shake off the excess and then pat down with your finger. If you do this over a piece of paper you can catch the excess and put it back in the pot for next time. I love the matte effect the powder gives your nails and I think it looks great up close. It also feels lovely and soft! The powder lasted much better than I expected and after five days wear was still there, although not as full a covering as when I first applied it.
I’m not sure exactly where my flocking powder was from as it was a Christmas present but you can buy lots of different colours from Born Pretty.
