Velvet Mani with BPS Pink Flocking Powder;

Ok, so it's more of a mauve-dusty rose-kind-of-pink, but its still pink and its still pretty :P

hi :)

I hope things are going well~ Almost half way done with the week, yay :D I hope everyone on the East-coast is doing well; I'm in the Mid-West (Michigan) and the winds & the cold here are pretty crazy. For today, I wanted to share the velvet mani I did some time last week. I received pink flocking powder from Born Pretty Store recently.

Here's what I used for the mani:

(Approximately) 13g of flocking powder (per description by BPS), The Face Shop's PK108 (which I received from my good friends of Chibi Nails, Jade & Xin Yi), tweezers, and a brush. The pink flocking powder package comes with the flocking powder, tweezer, and brush.

A swatch of PK108; it does come out a little darker on nails than how it looks in the bottle. It's a beautiful mauve color, here is one coat of PK108 for perfection :)

I don't know why my hands look ridiculously dry & gross, but I swear, they're not that dry and gross T__T

If you're wondering how I applied the flocking powder:
1) Base coat + 1 coat of PK108.
2) Applied top coat, and while it is still wet, I used the tweezers to grab some flocking powder & gently dropped the flocking powder over my nail.
3) Once the nail is covered and the top coat is dried, I used the brush to sweep off the excess powder and clean up (the brush was really handy).

I honestly didn't think I would like velvet nails ... but I'm glad I gave it a shot cause I loooove em :D Of course, they don't exactly last long enough, I enjoyed them. Once the flocking powder is wet, it doesn't look as pretty so I took my mani off after a day. I'm sure it could've lasted another day or two but that was just my preference.

Again, a big thanks to Nicole of Born Pretty Store for the flocking powder. Don't forget, you are always more than welcomed to use my coupon code & save 10% off your order when you order from BPS!~ Here's the code is 'KL5X31' :)

  1. This is a very interesting manicure. It's nothing I could probably wear because I work in the food industry and we wash our hands ALOT. But, very pretty to look at.

    1. yea, they wont do any good in the food industry, but they're definitely fun to look at... and touch. haha
