All powders and pigments have different structure and finish so 1 gram of one powder can look less than 1 gram of another powder. Powder comes in a large jar that can fit more than 1 gram of product so your jar will not be full when you receive it. Paradise powder is heavier than others so you will see smaller amount of it in a jar. Chrome powder jars will be completely full with 2.5 grams of product, other powder jars will be less than half full with 1 gram of product. You only need the tiniest amount of product per nail so 1 gram of powder will last for many manicures.
