Velvet Mani with BPS Pink Flocking Powder;
Ok, so it's more of a mauve-dusty rose-kind-of-pink, but its still pink and its still pretty :P
I hope things are going well~ Almost half way done with the week, yay :D I hope everyone on the East-coast is doing well; I'm in the Mid-West (Michigan) and the winds & the cold here are pretty crazy. For today, I wanted to share the velvet mani I did some time last week. I received pink flocking powder from Born Pretty Store recently.
Here's what I used for the mani:
(Approximately) 13g of flocking powder (per description by BPS), The Face Shop's PK108 (which I received from my good friends of Chibi Nails, Jade & Xin Yi), tweezers, and a brush. The pink flocking powder package comes with the flocking powder, tweezer, and brush.
A swatch of PK108; it does come out a little darker on nails than how it looks in the bottle. It's a beautiful mauve color, here is one coat of PK108 for perfection :)
I don't know why my hands look ridiculously dry & gross, but I swear, they're not that dry and gross T__T
If you're wondering how I applied the flocking powder:
1) Base coat + 1 coat of PK108.
2) Applied top coat, and while it is still wet, I used the tweezers to grab some flocking powder & gently dropped the flocking powder over my nail.
3) Once the nail is covered and the top coat is dried, I used the brush to sweep off the excess powder and clean up (the brush was really handy).
I honestly didn't think I would like velvet nails ... but I'm glad I gave it a shot cause I loooove em :D Of course, they don't exactly last long enough, I enjoyed them. Once the flocking powder is wet, it doesn't look as pretty so I took my mani off after a day. I'm sure it could've lasted another day or two but that was just my preference.
