Born Pretty Store Flocking Powder

I received some flocking powder from Born Pretty Store in purple and sky blue. To get the flocking powder on my nails I applied nail polish and then stuck my nail in the flocking powder while it was still wet. I used a fan nail art brush to brush off the excess flocking powder and I did not apply a top coat. 

  I used Sweet Color - #005 as the base for the purple flocking powder.

 I used Sweet Color - #009 as the base for the sky blue flocking powder.

I thought it was strange that they came in different containers.


I know some of you will be wondering if this is something you can actually wear for a few days. I wore this on my thumb for two days and it held up pretty well. Some of the flocking powder did fall off but only the ones that the polish didn't get a good grip on. There was still enough flocking powder to cover my nail. I wouldn't suggest wearing this while preparing food though in case some of them fall off into it, unless you like eating fuzzies.
