About a year ago, we were all going gaga for mermaid nails. Everyone wanted that perfect micro fine dusting of glitter that make nails look like candy. I’m still obsessed with this look, and since it is one of the most-visited pages on this site, the world seems to still be obsessed too. the ultimate guide to galaxy holos and chameleon flakes
After the mermaid craze, we moved into sugaring, and now we’re all about that flake life – a way to accomplish both looks without the noticeable grit of sugaring, or the potential color limitations of the mermaid technique. They come in holo and duo/multichrome flakes, and we love them all.
Our favorite products for achieving the galaxy holo look are, in no certain order:
Social Claws Sugar | Prism Petals Holo Flakes, $21-$32 for 3-5g jar.
Wildflowers Unicorn Dandruff (Galaxy Chrome,) $34 for 3g jar.
Wiino Shop Holographic Flake Dust, $25 for 1g of product in a 5g jar.
Born Pretty Galaxy Holo Flakes, $2.49 for 0.2g of product.
Indigo Nails Pixel Effect powder “Cinderella,” $11.65 3g jar. (This is a similar effect, but more of a pastel galaxy glitter.)
Speaking of flakes; they also come in chameleon colors and are a gorgeous way to accent your clients’ nails. Our favorites are: the ultimate guide to galaxy holos and chameleon flakes
