    Yep, flocking. It looks cool but think about what happens when you wash your hands. I'll pass.

    That's awesome. I've never heard of flocking powder. Now that I know what it's called I googled it. It's ok to wash your hands but these manicures don't last long they're saying. I think it's a super cute idea. I think you would do the background and let it dry and then do the dots. Thanks for telling me about flocking powder.

    I don't think I'd do the flocking but as far as 2 or 3 colors that is no problem. The nail peeps have tiny special brushes for using more than 1 color an doing designs. Usually cost about a dollar more per nail though.

    Probably important to note that the flocking doesn't set 'fluffy' - it looks fluffy, but it feels rough which is why I haven't done it. Kind of ruins the effect if you touch it and it's rough.

    I have nail art dotting tools that I use for polka dots. Easy to use, very easy. :) I don't think I would do that look, I'm not a fan at all, but it seems like it would be pretty easy. :) The eye would be really easy, what would be hard would be getting the white part the right size without making it gloppy. lol

    It looks kind of like a weird fungus.

    Hi there! I see you're interested in my flocking powder Monster's Inc. nails!

    If you're wondering how I do the spots, I'd be happy to post a tutorial on my blog!

    Just let me know! :)

    I would love to see how you do it. A previous poster posted a link to your blog. I was pretty excited to see a couple other Disney inspired nails too. You are very creative!

    Thank you!

    I was planning to post a tutorial on it soon!

    I really love creating manicures based off of Disney characters. They're so colorful and there are so many ways to recreate certain aspects of them. :)

    I have two new ones I'm going to post really soon, so look out for those as well.

    :)
