Continuing my Valentine’s Day themed nail art posts, I’d love to show you a manicure that I did using white and red flocking powder:
It’s my first experience with flocking powder nail art. I bought it at the local craft shop, and I chose the white one to create the snowy effect on my nails. Since Valentine is all about love and hearts, I “put” a crimson heart in the snow as an accent. I shamelessly admit that I’m happy with how the heart turned out. At first, I painted it with a red nail polish over white polish, and only after that I applied flocking powder, using a nail art brush + tweezers and trying to be very careful, to be more exact, trying not to put much powder at the boundaries of white and red.
For the white flocked manicure I needed:
- OPI Alpine Snow – a white creme nail polish (perfect name for the design!)
- Dance Legend Chili Red – a bright red crelly for the heart (and red flocking powder over it)
- White flocking powder for the snow
Fuzzy nails can be a great choice for those who want to achieve an unusual, or even edgy look for Valentine’s Day. Of course, it’s a one day manicure, but I think the effect is worth trying :) Another good thing about flocking powder is that it’s easy to remove it with a regular nail polish remover, in fact much easier than micro beards.
Thank you for looking! See you ♥
