Review of Rossi Nails Glam Powder Trial Kit

Hi, everyone! I’ve been away from the blog for awhile, but I’m still very active on Instagram. The stay at home orders during the pandemic have left me with a little more time on my hands, so I decided to make a post about dip powders for all of you adventurous do-it-yourself people out there. After all, the nail salons are closed, so now is a good time to experiment with new techniques!

Today I’m featuring a trial kit offered from Rossi Nails, a US based company. Their products are still made in China, but the formulas are developed in the USA. I tried a dip powder kit from Nicole Diary a few months ago but wasn’t so impressed with how long they lasted and especially did not like their top coat, not to mention that a lot of the activating liquids dried up in their bottles despite me not even using them that much. I was offered the chance to try out the Rossi brand and jumped at the new opportunity to have another shot at dip powder nails.

Magical Dandelion Seed Nail Art

Ah, September.  The seasons are changing, so I wanted to do some nail art that would capture the magic in the air.  The lightness of fluffy dandelion seeds seemed perfect for the prompt!

I knew I was going to use a plate from Born Pretty Store, so I decided to stamp silver holographic polish onto a shimmery dark blue background.

The look starts with Soho Skinny from Ulta Professional, a beautiful pearly dark blue.

Stamping done with UO Nail Lacquer in Silver Holo.

For that touch of magic, I brushed Sugar Coat by Kleancolor on just the top half of my nails to create a simple glitter gradient look.

Sugar Coat by Kleancolor. I love the iridescent glitter in this polish!

And that’s it!  Super easy, sophisticated looking nails that capture the magic of the changing seasons.  Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day!  Happy polishing!
