Velvet Nails 101 (How to & FAQ)

Hi loves!!

It’s the first time you see me lol. I have to film my part because for the FAQ  part, there were not much video, and mostly just me talking.  It took me a while to sum up the courage to finally film the “me” part. So, please don’t leave any cruel comment, okay? :)

I’m so glad I finally finished editing this video. This one definitely took the longest to edit.

Anyway, about the velvet nails. Like I said in the video, I was really surprised by it! It was REALLY unique. I kept touching my nails all the time. It’s soft and furry, kinda like petting your stuffed animals lol.

I hope this Velvet Nails 101 can get to a good start if you want to go ahead and try the velvet manicure trend.

It’s similar (the same, I think) to ciaté velvet kit, except the ciaté velvet kit was on the higher end price and I’m just not fancy enough to spend my money on them lol.  In this video, you can do it yourself just by buying the flocking powder/velvet powder and use your own nail polish which can save you some money :)

Hmm, I want to rant a little here hehe

*I think the velvet nails trend was started by ciaté (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong here) with their velvet nails kit. Personally, I’m not very fond with the brand because they claim almost everything as their innovation (again, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong here). The latest one I know they claim is the foil nails they called colourfoil nails kit or something like that. They call it their newest nail innovation. Oh, please, the foil nails has been around for a really long time. I even have a stack of foil I haven’t used since I bought them LAST year.*

Okay, I’m done ranting.

Thank you for watching! Take care, xoxo


Now, I'll talk a little bit about bornprettystore (in my opinion). 

Mainly, they sell nail art supply, but they also have some other stuffs too (accessories & jewelry, apparel, make up, toys, etc).

And  yes, their collection of nail art supply is very wide, but what I love the most about them is that they do free shipping WORLDWIDE. That's like a huge plus on my notes. I can't tell just how many times I want to order something online (from international online shop), but have to cancel because the shipping cost more than what I actually bought, or the shipping is really expensive. (Some of them also offer free shipping, but it's usually US only). Other than that, they do shipping within 24 hours.

Now, with all the perks of free shipping and shipping within 24 hours, I have to say doesn't have the cheapest price. They are not expensive per se, but I've seen a cheaper price for the (some) items -albeit, the difference is not big-. But, I see it this way, even though I spent money a little bit more on the items, I don't have to pay shipping and I end up spent less than the one that I do have to pay shipping.

I guess that's it for my opinion about Bornprettystore :) I hope it helps you decide whether you want to purchase from them or not.
