The color I used is called “Brown Red” which is basically a maroon.
Velvet nails are completely new to me, so my results didn’t turn out very nice. (Why I only show you two fingers ;) But I imagine if I tried it again it would turn out better.
The results I got when I used a nail wheel were much much better. Not sure why, but yeah.
Anyway, you get two containers of powder (which will last FOREVER), these funky tweezers to pick up the powder, and a brush (see in first photo). I used China Glaze’s Long Kiss for the base color. On the nail wheel pic, from left to right, I used Orly Va Va Voom, China Glaze Long Kiss, and Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat. The base color definitely affects how the velvet looks on your nails. If you’re really worried about everything matching, Born Pretty Store does sell matching nail polish with the flocking powder.
