Holographic Flakie Nails

Hey everyone! How's your week going? I'm off for February break and it's so nice to relax and have some me time. It was an unusually warm (70 degree!) day in Jersey City so I went out for an hour and took a walk along the water. I also got to try out my other Born Pretty Store products that were sent to me and I'm excited to share them with you!

The product I'm sharing with you today is the holographic chameleon flakies nail powder (#1 & #3). The application process is similar to a mirror powder. These powders are meant to be used with UV base coat, UV color gel, and UV top coat (meaning it has to be cured under a light). However, I used the ORLY Color Amp'd Flexible Sealcoat over regular black polish and it worked just fine. Another alternative would be Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. These don't require curing under a light.

Isn't this pretty?!

I started with a base of black creme polish, and you could use any black for that. Then apply the top coat and give that some time to dry. Before you get into the powder I would highly recommend using a liquid tape around your cuticles to save yourself from a whole lot of mess. The best tool to apply your powder is a disposable eyeshadow applicator. I like to dip it into the flakies and then press it onto the nail. I did this until the whole surface was covered and then carefully peeled off the tape. Apply top coat and you're all set!

Have you tried any powders before? I think they're super fun! Btw, when you place an order with BPS make sure you use my discount code ASYW10 for 10% off!
