Velvet effect nails: how to reproduce this trend?
- After pushing back your cuticles and filing your nails, apply a base coat.
- Apply two coats of nail polish then clean the sides with a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover, wrapped around a toothpick. Just before your second coat of polish dries, dust it with velvet powder using tweezers.
