polish days: something new

Hey everyone!
It's time for January's another Polish Days. I missed a couple of months, but hopefully I'll be able to do all of them from now on.

The theme is about trying something new, something I haven't done before. There were plenty of things to choose from as I didn't experiment a lot in the past year while there were tons of different trends that came up. In the end I chose to do "velvet nails", because I had ordered a bunch of flocking powder that arrived just in time for Polish Days.

I decided to do the thumb and ring finger only, as I didn't want to overdo the nails.
I wasn't so sure about it, but now that I tried it, I fell in love with this look.

Here's a close up for you :) As for the durability, it didn't last long. I washed my hands more than a few times during the day and plenty of the powder fell off. The feeling isn't weird at all, I barely felt it on my nails.

Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Lovely flocking - did you just want to stroke it all day? x

    1. As a matter of fact I did :) It was really hard to not touch them and that's probably one of the reasons the powder fell of too fast :D

  2. I so love the color for I love purples. I also love the design for it looks elegant and classy. Great job on this one! Love it!

  3. What is the purple polish you used? It's very pretty!
