Hey loves! I hope everyone had a good weekend? I finally got my internet back up and running after 5 very long days! I am now spending the next few days catching up on nail stuff and writing reviews. First I'm starting with these Powders I received from Whats Up Nails.

How To:
Regular Nail Polish (last 1-2 days)
-This powder can be applied over freshly painted regular nail polish when it is still a little bit sticky. -You can also use any gel effect top coat or use any peel off base coat.

-Dip a finger of your other hand into the powder and lightly rub the powder to the nail. You can use an eye shadow applicator or a silicone brush to apply the powder but your fingertip works the best!
-After you cover the nail with powder wipe any leftover powder from the nail using a clean finger or brush.
-You can use any transparent peel off base coat over powder and then apply top coat over it. Or you can apply a thin layer of any water based top coat over powder to seal it on the nail (no additional top coat needed).  
Gel Nail Polish
-Apply a layer of non-wipe gel nail polish and cure it, but don't over cure it!
-Dip your finger of other hand into the powder and lightly rub the powder to the nail. You can use an eye shadow applicator or a silicone brush to apply the powder but your fingertip works the best! 
-After you cover the nail with powder wipe any leftover powder from the nail using a clean finger or brush.
-Apply gel top coat to seal powder on the nail. In some cases (like when you use Gelish) you will need to apply structure gel before top coat to prevent changing color of powder. OneDor No Wipe Top Coat works really well as base and as top coat for powder.

I used them over regular black polish so I followed the first set of steps given above. I used the UNT peel off base coat that Whats Up Nails also sent me. I used my finger to apply the powder and a little bit goes along way. It applied very easily. I did however have a couple issues. #1. It was very hard to get the powder to stick to the edges of my polish so you can still see the black polish around the edges, especially the silver chrome powder. and #2. The silver chrome powder was very difficult for me to remove and even after a couple hand washes I still had quite a bit of the powder stuck on my skin. Otherwise I did enjoy working with them and I especially loved the Alchemy powder.

These are available now for $21.75 per 2.5 grams

All powders have different structure and finish so 1 gram of one powder can look less than 1 gram of another powder. Powder comes in a large jar that can fit more than 1 gram of product so your jar will not be full when you receive it. Paradise and Sunset powders are heavier than others so you will see smaller amount of it in a jar. Chrome powder jars will be completely full with 2.5 grams of product, other powder jars will be less than half full with 1 gram of product. You only need the tiniest amount of product per nail so 1 gram of powder will last for many manicures.
