So what is it? It's flocking powder...I have no idea what this is used for in terms of crafting but when you put it on the nail it looks like you have little fuzzy sweaters on your nails. What is better than a nail with a fuzzy sweater on it? Nothing, duh! This is not for everyone but not going to lie, I'm kind of loving it. Is this practical...no, but it's fun! If I ever go to a Katy Perry concert I think I might actually do this again, it would actually be appropriate at that kind of event. Once this is dry it feels weird, I thought it would be soft but it's kind of rough...I think that's my only disappointment with this texture experiment.
My fuzzy sweaters are applied over a blue polish, you can't tell on the blue nails but it peeks out a little under the pink. Also, the blue nails kind of make me think of the cookie monster...they look like his fur in a strange way. I hope I'm not the only one thinking that haha

To do this mani it's pretty much exactly the same as my Caviar mani from yesterday. I applied a coat of top coat to the mani I already had on and while it was wet I sprinkled the flocking powder on. If you do this do it over a plate or paper towel, it is messy. I lightly shook the excess off the nail and gently tapped the fuzz onto the nail to make sure it stuck. To get off any excess after the tapping I lightly blew on my nail...warning don't do that near the plate you just used to catch the excess sprinkled fuzz...the fuzz get's everywhere (yes, I learned that the hard way lol).
I tried this with a top coat just to see if that would look cool and it's a giant fail...if you try this avoid top coat over your fuzz. Obviously this is like a 1 night only kind of manicure, water does affect it and it also looks less fluffy as the night goes on. But really, would you wear this for more than a night? No, probably not! Now I haven't tried removing this yet...I'm still wearing it, but I think it will be pretty easy if done the same way as the caviar mani from yesterday.
Here is my flocking powder in case you're wondering what it looks like. These were on sale at my Michaels, I think they were like $1.79 each.
