I had a couple of ideas for today's Challenge Your Nail Art prompt, but I kept coming back to the one that involved flocking powder, because I still had yet to try it out, and the green always reminded me of fuzzy trees :D So here's the design I came up with!
I used a base of ILNP's "Cherry Luxe" from the brand new Holiday Collection - I just looooooove the flakie goodness of it!! It's the *perfect* Christmas red!
After the base, I used striping tape to make the tree design, then put clear nail polish down with flocking powder on top. I have an accent nail where I used white glitter instead of the flocking powder to represent those that have those gorgeous white Christmas trees in their homes :D All the trees got a holographic glitter star topper ^_^
I'm not too displeased with this mani, though my pinky looks super wonky - I tried pressing my finger into the flocking powder first, and found it clumped like a mofo. I used a dry brush and dabbed it on the other nails and got a much better effect. I'm definitely not opposed to playing with flocking powder again in the future!
