These velvet textured nails are incredibly chic yet easy to achieve. All you need is your favourite nail polish colour and flocking powder available at most craft stores or online.

Simply sprinkle flocking powder all over wet, freshly painted nails (gently dusting off any excess powder) and let it dry. When it’s dry, your velvet nails are ready!

Tip: Don’t apply a top coat otherwise it’ll cause patchy unevenness to your velvet manicure and ruin your clear top coat polish.

You can even get really creative with this trend, like this adorable Monster’s Inc. inspired mani by Pixel’s Polish.
