Velour flocked nails

ChiChi do some pretty amazing nail art collections, and the latest one to show you is the Velour Flock Manicure set.

There is also a blue/purple set.

It was a bit fiddly to apply but definitely worth the effort. The set comes with three nail polishes and three matching velour flocking containers.  The flocking is soft and fuzzy (and very messy!)  I prepped my false nails as usual and got everything ready to start working.

I decided to go with the purple/pink colour for my nails, but with one red feature nail to break up the colour.  I started out by pouring some of the flocking powder into a small glass. Here you can see a close up of the powder – it is very fine.

Any excess can be put back into the containers.

What you need to do is paint the nail, and while it is still wet, dip it into the powder and roll it around to make sure it’s well covered.  I blu-tacked the nail to the end of a pencil, painted it, and then covered it in flocking.

Once you take it out of the flocking, it’s on quite thick, so you can use the provided brush to sweep off any excess back into the glass.

Then repeat for each nail until you have a complete set!

In case you were wondering, they lasted quite well through showering and doing the washing up :)
