Flakes are a bit different than the typical glitters you'll find in Dip Powder. Flakes are well, flakey. They're a new way to add a dimension and a bit of multifaceted glitz to your manicure. Flakes need a little extra care when it comes time for buffing, so don't hesitate to add an extra layer ofD75 Vivien (Clear)(or two) when adding flakes to your manicure. To help your flakes add the most 'wow' factor to your mani, gently tap the side of the jar each time prior to dipping. This helps loosen the flakes and brings them to top so they're ready to be picked up by yourPro Base.
