Velvet nails with faux studs

When it comes to beauty, we like to get experimental around here…

The steps are simple:

  • One by one, give your nails texture with a velvet nail polish. If you can’t find velvet nail polish in your area, you can always find “flocking powder” on a crafting website or just Google it. First you’ll paint the base color (which should match your flocking powder) and then shake flocking powder on the wet polish. Let it sit for 10 min and then dust off using an old blush brush or eye shadow brush.
  • Next, using the mechanical pencil trick or a dotting tool, make metallic dots on top of the velvet polish. The dots will bead up and appear raised making them look a little more like studs than dots.

As you can see in the photos above, practice a pattern before you start applying the dots. You can do just one nail or you can do all ten. Good luck!
