After nearly 5 years of blogging and doing my nails, I thought nothing could surprise me anymore until I got the Aurora Powder from Whats Up Nails. This product can be best described as unicorn chrome mirror powder with a stunning iridescent finish. Please watch my video tutorial below and then I will tell you more details.
There are two things you need to remember when applying the Aurora Powder. First, you need a gel top coat without the dispersion layer (such as Indigo Nails Dry Top Super shine). The powder will only adhere to the smooth finish of the no-wipe gel top coat. You won’t be able to apply it on your regular top coat.
The second thing is a proper application. Start by applying the pigment with a makeup applicator and then continue to work the powder into your nails with a silicone tool. You will achieve the best results when you rub the product on your nails long enough, so all the particles are smooth and mirror-like. Remember that little goes a long way. You don’t need to use a lot of the product for amazing results.
Now, I noticed that applying your final layer of top coat often ruins the chrome effect. I am yet to find a top coat that doesn’t mess up the mirror effect when it comes to powder, so if you know a good one, please let me know!
Since I got the Whats Up Nails Aurora Powder, I wore it multiple times on my nails and received many compliments! It looks absolutely magical and the iridescent effect looks so much better in person (especially in low lights).
This pigment will look so much different depending on your base color. In my video I applied it over cobalt blue base, but it also looks amazing over teal, purple and white.
What do you guys think of this powder? Please let me know about your experience in the comments below (also if you tried such powders from different brands).
