Who doesn’t love all things velvet during wintertime? This material is soft, comfy and feels oh so luxe on the skin. And it seems like the world agrees with us. Now along with velvet clothing and handbags, this much-desired material has made its way to the beauty world and we’re all for it! This new holiday-nail art trend is taking over social media and we’re loving it.
Velvet nails are on ever ‘IT’ girls list as it’s easy to achieve and goes well with the season. Step aside metallics and mattes, this nail polish fad has gained popularity due to the way the light bounces off the fingernails, giving the illusion of a velvety finish.
Best of all, you don’t even need to visit a parlour to get these trendy nails. Recreating these nails at home is pretty easy and simple -- yes, you read that right and you don't need much either. To achieve velvet nails, simply apply your base colour first and later buff a bit of flocking powder over each nail until you achieve the desired effect. For those who aren’t aware, the flocking powder is made up of masses of tiny fibres and adheres to any sticky surface. If you’re a pro at DIY manicures, you probably own an LED lamp. Use this to seal in the polish.
