We have had sand art ON THE BRAIN! We had so much sand art flying around in preparation for our Clashist workshop that we started sand-art-ing EVERYTHING. Including… a sand art manicure!!! Everyone’s favorite childhood activity (No? Just me?), on your nails!!
Have you ever seen velvet flocking powder for nails!? It’s pretty crazy!!! Makes your nails look and feel like velvet… or sand art in this case! It. Was. Perfect. Could you also get the look with polish? YOU SURE CAN! But I gotta tell you, messing around with this flocking powder is A BLAST! Let’s do it!
We used a set of velvet flocking powder like THIS one!

So, who’s gonna be sand art-ing their nails now!?

These nails are so much fun! Such a cute idea – reminds me of when I used to do sand art projects as a kid

Super cute! Is this difficult to remove/how long would you say it lasts?
Good Qs! It definitely wears away a bit with every hand wash/shower, etc. so it’s definitely the most fitting for a special event and not for long-wearing purposes! And it removes easily with just regular ol’ nail polish remover!
