What You'll Need:
Step 1: Preparing Your Nails
Before diving into the velvet nail trend, it's important to prepare your nails properly. Start by trimming and shaping your nails to your desired length and shape. Then, gently push back your cuticles and clean your nails to remove any dirt or oil. This will create a smooth canvas for your manicure and help your gel polish adhere better.
Step 2: Creating the Velvet Effect
In order to make the cat eye gel polish really pop, apply your choice of gel color as a base to each of your nails and cure in your UV lamp for 60 seconds. Apply a second coat (if needed).
Apply your choice of 3D cat eye magnetic gel polish on top of your base color. Before you cure it, hold your dual sided 3D gel polish magnet about half an inch away from your nail and hover or swipe along all four sides of your nail bed to get that "velvet" effect. Once the nail looks the way you like it, cure for 60 seconds.
Step 3: Sealing the Velvet Effect
To seal and protect the velvet effect, apply a layer of clear gel top coat over the nails. This will not only add shine, but it also seals your manicure and protects it. Remember to seal the edges properly to prevent any lifting or chipping. Cure the top coat under your UV lamp to complete your manicure.
Congratulations! You've successfully achieved the velvet nail trend with gel polish. This unique and luxurious manicure will surely turn heads and leave everyone in awe. Experiment with different colors and combinations to create your own personalized velvet nail designs!
