This is a mixture of gray flocking powder with little holographic glitters. The glitter is hard to capture; you can see some of them on my thumb. It was easy to apply. I painted each nail with a gray creme then did another coat one nail at a time. I dipped my nail into the flocking powder, pressed it down gently, then cleaned off the excess with a fan brush.
The texture is not nearly as distracting as I expected. The velvety feel was interesting to wear for a day. It stayed on relatively well through hand washing and whatnot. The flocking powder dries quickly. Definitely pick a base polish that is close to the flocking powder. If any comes off, it makes the bald spots much less noticeable and blend in really well.
I ordered all of my flocking powder from Kandies Faux Candy Charms on Etsy. Her shop is on vacation right now, but should be up shortly. The powder costs $1 for a 2x3 inch bag and comes in a variety of colors. Some with glitter, some without.
I might try a few other flocking powder manicures in different colors before the leftovers become part of my craft supplies. What do you think of the fuzzy trend?
