The velvet manicure trend is going no-where and Ciaté have newly launched a bright red kit that is sure to stop traffic not to mention it is perfect for the upcoming festive period. I will be truthful and say that the effect is not for me as I can not stand the texture of velvet or cotton wool for that matter. If you can get past that it is visually stunning not to mention really easy to do at home.
To apply you simply use the provided polish, paint the nails and leave to dry.
Once dry you apply another coat and place nails into the try the Ciaté kit comes presented within, next you take the "Luxurious Red Crushed Velvet" and gently tap it over the wet polish. Allow it to dry for around 10 minutes and then using the mini nail brush swipe off any excess topping.
I am not the most skilled when it comes to nail art (I struggle to paint my nails) but I will hold up my hands and say that this is easy peasy and pretty effective to boot.
Is this something you would try? Or are you a little squimish to such textures like myself?
