Crush on crushed velvet flocked nails

Mu crushed velvet manicure is finally here!!!
I have been looking for crushed velvet flock for a reasonable price and it took me over 2 weeks to find it on ebid  for £0.99 plus £0.81 delivery!!! There is 4 colours in one pack. What a bargain! If you buy more colours, you get a p&p discount.
If you want to splash your cash on more colours there is a pack of 12 from theglitterpot for £14.49  here.

The manicure is very simple:
1.Paint your nail with a nail polish similar in colour to the flocking you want to use.
2.Dip your nail into a pot of flocking powder.
3.Press the flocking powder onto your nail firmly and blow off any excess.
4.Repeat on all nails and there you have fluffy, cuddly, soft nails :) amazing!

PS. I am sorry for the picture quality. I lost my XD card for my SLR and I had to use my ordinary digital camera. I am very upset about that, because I love good quality pictures :/ I ordered a replacement and my photography will be back to normal after the weekend.

  1. I wanted to flock yesterday but no craft shop in Glasgow (okay so I tried two, but they're the "big" ones) sold flocking powder. I'll just have to buy online and wait impatiently by the door.

    1. Surprisingly they look even more interesting when they get wet! The pink becomes more intense and it looks awesome!

  29. I really have no idea how I feel about these! They're so different though, I'd be intrigued to give it a go. :) Has reminded me to get myself on the waiting list for Ciata Caviar Manicure sets!

  32. Wow, this is a first. Really cute, looks like cotton candy. The lifespan isn't that bad considering the fact that I do my nails at least twice a week anyways lol.
