My boyfriend's sister bought me a selection of flocking powders for Christmas (and some adorable owl water decals that I neeeeed to use).
I used one coat of China Glaze Man Hunt and covered it in flocking powder while it was still wet.
For my little finger, I attempted to stick my nail in the tub, which ended up...er...a bit of a mess. Had to take that off and redo it. So for the other nails I picked a bit of powder up and put it on each nail. I lightly pressed it down, and then after leaving it to dry for a few minutes, I used a fan brush to brush of the excess powder (on to a sheet of paper so I could put it back in the pot of course!).
I'd recommend using two coats of polish underneath. Or rather, however many coats you need for it to be opaque, as I think these look a little patchy?
I'm a little bit in love with them though... Will definitely be doing this again! And I have 11 other colours I have to try :)
Have you tried velvet nails? Or is fluffy not your thing?
