Long gone are the days where you just painted your nails a simple colour. Nail art is a fast growing trend and shows no signs of slowing down. The latest nail-art trend is Hello Darling’s Rockcandy, a 3-D effect created by tiny little microbeads.
Rockcandy? What’s that?
“It is a collection of two-step nail design sets unlike anything you’ve worn before, available in ten sensational colours.
Each set contains your very own Hello Darling colour and is expertly matched with a vial filled with hundreds of glass microbeads, leaving an intensely textured, three-dimensional finish. These can be used for intricate nail designs, as a feature nail, or for complete coverage of each nail.”
But how does it work?
