Velvet Nails

Post  shoppingaddict on Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:39 pm

So the salon that I normally go to for all my waxing needs needed hand models for velvet nails and they asked me if I would model my nails for their website. I agreed and went to have it done this morning.

Apart from the fact that she filed my nails having just got them to my perfect shape (v. cross about that) they dont look too bad. What do you think?

I love the colour and you have lovely nails - I'm not sure I'd like the velvet texture though, I think it would creep me out! Wink

Not a fan of the effect but the colour is nice.

Your nails are lovely, but that effect on my fingers would make me heave. Bit like that fuzzy felt on paper you used to get at school to make pictures with.

I think they are cute, but given my life is spent in the sink or under the car then I can't really see that being a good idea for me Very Happy

As a polish picker, I think they'd only last until the end of the road after i'd left the salon. I'd have to pick at the bits Embarassed

Well as you can tell the 'velvet' hasn't lasted very long at all. Not even any heavy wear!

Yup both my thumbs is the only place it's left. And you probably can't tell by the photo but the velvet is no longer pink, just looks dirty from where I've been washing my hands etc. My thumbs just look dirty!!!

The effect reminds me a little of getting pva glue on your thumbs, its goes sort of bitty and discoloured.

I imagine its nice for a night out though, perhaps it would work better in a darker colour?

That last photo is revolting lol.

I think I'll give it a go but I haven't come across and cheap flocking powder in dark colours so I'm holding out for now. Have you seen the velvet ruffian manis?

I've just made my own flocking powder and gave it a try. I quite like the effect but it was such a faff I might put the Ciate on my Christmas list santa

Don't blame you. Mentioned it to the lady who done it at my last visit and she didn't seem to care, so oh well!

The velvet nails and caviar nails really don't appeal to me at all. Suspect
