Hello my little buttons!!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the mirror nail powder videos that have been going viral, I couldn’t resist investing. I know my customers pretty well by now and knew this would be a huge hit with my girlies!
It’s a really intetesting concept, the powder itself is a super fine silver micro glitter. Instructions to use are as follows:
1. Prep the nail as usual
2. Paint the nail black (gel Polish) then cure.
3. Top coat then cure.
4. Using a lint free wipe, wipe of the sticky layer not using any chemicals, just the wipe.
5. Rub the powder into the nail.
6. Repeat steps 3,4 & 5 then topcoat again
Voila your done!
The powder is so easy to use once you’ve removed the tacky layer, this photo was my first attempt. I will say though, as the powder is so fine it really does go everywhere so be prepared to be covered in micro glitter for a day or two! My powder was from wildflowers and including delivery it came to £30 for a 10g jar. Yes it is expensive (the current value of the pound doesn’t help) but now I have played around with it im confidant I’ll get a good amount of sets out of the little pot and have adjusted my prices accordingly. I’m hoping to buy some of the other chrome colours avaliable too but need to save my pennies lol.
I would also recommend to have a separate top coat for mirror nails as the glitter partials have now contaminated my top coat making it glittery, bit of a pain but wasnt a huge suprise.
I’d love to hear below if you like mirror nails or if you know any other brands that stock this powder?
