How To Use Flocking Powder ~ Velvet Nail Art Using Flocking Powder

Hey everyone! How are you all doing? I guess you all have plans for the long weekend. Wish you all lots of fun this weekend. Today I have a different and unique nail art for you all. I will show you how to use flocking powder on your nails. Flocking powder create the perfect soft velvet texture on the nails. You do not need to seal it with a top coat. This is first time I’m trying Flocking Powder for nail art and I’m impressed. I washed dishes and washed my hair and did all normal day stuff. These fluffy nails were intact the whole time. I stayed put for four days for me which I think is pretty good. Let me show you how to get this Velvet Flocking Powder Nail Art done!

Nail Art Velvet flocking

Items and Tools I Used

  • Base Coat
  • Top Coat
  • Red Nail Polish
  • Dark Red Flocking Powder
  • Multisize Gold Studs
  • Nail Glue
  • Dotting Tool
  • A Tweezer
  • A paint brush to dust off the excess

How I did the Nail Design

Start by applying base coat polish on your nails and let it dry. Paint your nails with red nail polish and give it some time to dry as well. This is easy but can get messy so make sure you have a piece of paper underneath. Take a slow drying top coat and apply on one nail at a time. Pick some flocking powder using a tweezer and cover the whole nail. You can collect all the excess fall outs and put it in the jar to use it again.

Some people prefer to use the colored nail polish for flocking powder application but I feel normal polishes dry bit fast and you don’t get enough time to work with the velvet powder. So suggest using a slow drying top coat will ease the application. Gently press the the flocking powder with your finger and dust off the excess. I used a flat paint brush, you can use a soft old tooth brush instead.

Whatever color flocking powder you are using, always paint the nails with similar nail polish color. I bought a set of flocking powder from eBay. It comes with 24 different colors. The dark red one caught my eye and I choose to do a red velvet nails design. I will be doing more of fluffy nail designs using some other colors. Totally loving this! This stuff is very cheap and looks classy on nails.

I just cant help myself when it comes to adding accessories to nails. So I added different sizes of gold studs on the nail tip, bigger ones in the middle and smaller sizes on both the sides. As we will not be adding top coat over the flocking powder I picked up some nail glue on a dotting tool glued the areas where I will be placing gold studs. Then using the smaller end of the dotting tool I placed gold studs.

The glue really holds the stud in place. it was on my nails the whole time I was wearing this design. This fluffy nails will look awesome for special events. This looks so chic and sober almost like a fluffy red carpet on nails.
