Something Green

I received this product of my own choosing, free of charge for my honest, non-bias review from the Born Pretty Store.

I promised you girls greens, and Christmas is all about bringing home something green. So today my nails are Christmas Green. Today's product reminds me of the European Silver Fir (Abies Alba), so since I can't go to Norway this year for Christmas like I normally do, I am bringing some of Norway to my nails.

The product I am talking about is this loose glitter from BornPrettyStore in #1209

First I applied my peel-off base coat, then a generous amount of clear polish, and used a funnel to add the powder to my nails, and dabbed with my finger to make it stick better.

The texture of this product falls more on the flocking powder side of things, than glitter. If you are unfamiliar with flocking powder you might recognize it as "crushed velvet" instead. Same thing, just different name, and different target group. While flocking powder is being sold for Miniature War Gamers, "crushed velvet" was sold to nail art geeks like us.
This feels like a more milled version of flocking powder to me. The glitter is very fine.

This means that it doesn't take much for the product to end up everywhere, and the smallest breath or wind will take it away, so turn of your fan when doing your nails.

That being said, I really like how it looks on my nails, and gave me a strange sensation when I stroke my fingers over it.

Wouldn't it be totally cool to do a Christmas Tree using this powder as an accent?!

  1. I love the way that looks. And yes, it would make a great tree! I love any textured stuff. :)

    1. So I did follow up on that and got my hands on a brown flocking powder, so there will be a Christmas Tree this year.
