NEW BYS Velvet for Nails in Blue Suede Shoes

Textured nails have become increasingly popular since the Caviar Manicure hit the beauty-world by storm! BYS has thus far launched their 'Caviar for Nails', 'Sugar for Nails', 'Glitter for Nails' and now... they've welcomed 'Velvet for Nails'!! BYS Velvet for Nails come at an affordable price of A$7.95 per kit and there are 12 vibrant colours available. 

Today I will be giving you a simple step-by-step tutorial to apply BYS Velvet for Nails in Blue Suede Shoes!

Included in the BYS Velvet for Nails kit is a pot of coloured velvet powder, a brush and a bottle of nail polish. There was also a metallic square to be used as a mat to ensure you don't leave a mess from applying the velvet powder. I prefer to use an A4 sheet of paper, because I tend to make a huge mess when it comes to applying these.

Now, on to my Blue Suede Shoes!

Step 1. Apply 1-2 coats of nail polish to each nail.

Tip: Ensure that you apply a nice even layer of nail polish and try not to apply a thick layer. Applying a thick and uneven layer will lead to clustering of powder on your nails and it won't look neat at all. 

Step 2. While your nails are still wet, quickly dip each finger into the velvet pot and ensure each nail contains surplus powder. Wait for about 5 minutes for your nails to dry.

Tip: Instead of dipping your finger into the pot, you could pour some powder onto a plate. 

Step 3. Using the brush, gently sweep away any excess velvet powder around the cuticle.

Tip: If you have excess powder on the bed of your nails, gently tap your nails onto the sheet of paper.

Ta-da! My furry and fluffy BYS Velvet for Nails in Blue Suede Shoes are complete! The velvet feel adds a nice touch to the bed of my nails and I just can't stop caressing them! The Velvet Powder lasted a full day until it started to separate from the the surface of my nails. So, if you intend to go for the velvet look on your nails, it would be best to apply the powder earlier on the same day.

BYS Velvet for Nails are available in-store at K-Mart, Glassons, Cosmetics Plus, Bardot and The Reject Shop, or online at Fashion Addict and GLOSS.
