How to Create UV Gel Velvet Nails? Discover Simple Methods for This Design!

Creating the velvet effect with the new Bride’s Babes UV gel polishes is very simple. Learn how to do it step by step:

  1. Prepare your cuticles and nail plate: Push back the cuticles with a wooden stick or pusher, trim them with nippers or a drill, then shape your nails to the desired length and shape. Buff the plate with a sanding block, clean with a cleaner, and apply primer.
  2. Apply the base: Carefully apply a thin layer of UV gel polish base, avoiding the cuticles, and cure it under a UV LED lamp.
  3. Apply colour: Paint your nails with the chosen colour and cure under the UV LED lamp. For a fuller effect, repeat this step.
  4. Top coat application: Depending on the final effect you want to achieve, finish the style with a glossy or matte top coat. This not only adds character but also protects the style from chipping and scratching.

No matter what manicure you’re doing, always remember to nourish and moisturise your cuticles with oil after the treatment!

Velvet Nails for Classic Lovers

Fancy velvet nails but prefer classic polishes? Discover the unique collection of 2-in-1 Glow Holo top coats for classic polishes, which give you a fabulous glow inspired by UV gel styles:

  • Blue Holo Glazed: A top coat with a violet-blue shimmer allows you to create the iconic glazed donut nails effect, which will surely make you swoon.
  • Silver Blush: A top coat with a minimalist silver shimmer, perfectly fitting the tasteful "mani no mani" trend, which is fashionable and desired in every season.
  • Pink Glow: A pink-gold shimmer top coat will add confidence and incredible charm!

Each of the 2-in-1 Glow Holo top coats can be applied over a base coat, your chosen colour polish, or directly on the nail plate. These products do not require curing under a UV LED lamp.

Create Your Velvet Nails Using Nail Powders

Want to go bold, experiment, and create a truly striking style? Then go for the velvet effect nail powder! Its application is simpler than you think. Follow the above steps for preparation. Then, you can apply the powder in three ways:

  • Sprinkle and rub it into the cured dispersion layer (best with your fingertip or a special nail art brush), finish with a top coat, and cure under the UV LED lamp.
  • Sprinkle and rub it into a product without a dispersion layer, apply a top coat, and cure.
  • Sprinkle it – without rubbing! – onto an applied but uncured top coat, then cure.

Try, for example, the Flash Aurora Pink powder with a pink shimmer, perfect for summer styles. The pink tone will subtly complement light, creamy, or pink shades of polish. What Colours of Polish Look Best with Velvet Nails? This effect looks stunning on both light bases and darker shades of silver, grey, black, graphite, navy, and red. We guarantee it will be the hit of the upcoming season!

Summary

Velvet nails are a brilliant choice for an extraordinary, elegant, and exceptionally feminine style. While the effect is stunning, achieving it is surprisingly simple. You'll manage it even if you’re just starting your home manicure journey!
