Hello, TGIF and welcome to my holographic nail powder post!
If you are on any kind of social media at all, you know that nail powders are THE hot thing at the moment. Chrome, multi-chrome and holographic powders are all the rage and many different companies are offering various versions. I like the chrome ones but wasn’t interested in them enough to actually fork over some dough to buy some. But then the holographic ones started showing up all over my feeds, and of course I couldn’t resist!
So what the hell are these powders? They are cosmetic grade powders with prismatic properties which come in different sized microns. The one from Superflynails comes in just one formula, but the one from ColorCraze2000 comes in 20, 35 micro and 50 microns. The smaller the microns, the smaller the linear holo particles are. Most of the holo powders do work better with gel polish, but I think some people have used them without.
I decided to use the method that Twi-Star used on her video about the ColorCraze2000 one since she seems to know what she’s doing and I am kind of clueless with this kind of nail art! By the way if you aren’t following her on YouTube, Snapchat (Twi_Star) and Instagram, you are crazy, she’s AWESOME and hands down my favorite nail art vlogger.
