Velvet Flocked Nails from Born Pretty Store
Thursday, December 13, 2012
Recently had the chance to review some new cool things from Born Pretty Store, your ones stop for nail art supplies. This time, it was flocking powder, for velvet nails! Yes! This trend has really grown on me. I picked Brown Red, a rich burgundy color.
The kit came with tweezers, a huge vial of powder and a brush. It's a very simple process- I'm sure you've seen a tutorial elsewhere. Paint your nails your first coat, and individually paint the second coat. While it's still wet, use the tweezers to dump powder into the wet lacquer. Carefully press the flocking powder into the nail and use the brush to dust off your fingers. Voila, fuzzy nails!
I really love the burgundy color. It felt so perfect for this cold weather here in MN. Like warm finger sweaters? Hah! This jar is so huge, I could easily do another 50 velvet manicures, I think. Don't forget, you can use my code to get 10% off as well!
FAQs about velvet nails:
What happens when you wash your hands?
It gets wet. Even if you use soap, it rinses clean. It takes longer to dry than the rest of your hands but will pretty much survive normal hand washings.
How long does this manicure last?
That really depends on your normal wear and tear. I like changing my polish daily, so I didn't really worry about it. But it can start to look worn on the edges if you're hard on your nails (like any manicure, really). Bald spots may appear if there is a certain part of your nail that rubs against things a lot, but if you are careful, you can still get good mileage out of this manicure.
Have you tried this fuzzy manicure yet?
