I've had a tiny box of flocking powder in my special nail art supply drawer for forever! I just could never think of a great, creative way to use it so it sat there, staring up at me whenever I needed rhinestones or stamping polishes. Just waiting in its wrapper, hoping for a day I would finally make use of its fluffy little particles. SO since it's The Digit-al Dozen time and our theme is 'texture' I figured now is the very best time to finally bring out the flocking powder! And then some :D
I am not a fan of tape manicures when I do them; I much prefer to look at other people's tape manicures and nod my head in agreement and delight at the wonders they can create. Frankly I'm just impatient. BUT I thought that flocking powder would make for a great manicure because I figured it was a great way to show off the change in texture. And no tape mani design is as elegant and classic to me as the Chloe's Nails Patchwork mani!!
The Polishes + Supplies
For this manicure I used three polish colors and two different texture-y embellishments. I painted two coats of Pure Ice French Kiss as my base color on all nails. For the other shades of my triangles I used China Glaze Bahamian Escape (light blue) and Cult Nails Tempest (white creme). I layered my blue flocking powder over CG Bahamian Escape and the clear caviar beads with a pearly finish over the white. Michaels craft store is my favey place for half-priced ridiculous scrapbooking-turned-nail-art supplies :D
