Hmmm I'm not sure, I've dine them with eyeshadow a few times and clients have just called them an alternative Rockstar, not very imaginative I know. They are quite pastel like in colour so maybe a play on that.

I'm gonna call them "powder puff nails" as it sounds cute and girlie

I'm gonna try them out with hard gel and I was told they work best scrubbed into white (gel or shellac) so gonna have a little play at the weekend if I get time x

eBay I followed the link I had seen some other pictures. I thought they looked nice. I do loads of rockstars, so should be ok. When I read on eBay they said you mix with water lolx

You mix them with water for use in craft projects. If you're using them with Shellac or Gelish you just rub it over the sticky layer (I do it over white) and top coat just like rockstars. I tried the pink over white (comes out pink obviously!) and also over Purple Purple and it comes out a lovely lilac sort of colour. If you had the time I think you'd have loads of variations trying mica over different base colours! X

I used gelish. For the very light ones I used Sheek white as a base then the others I used the closest gelish match xx

Thanks. Did you do just one coat of white, cure then rub the powders into the dispersion layer???

Powdered pearls sounds lovely, can I borrow it?
