Style Files: How To Do Velvet And Beaded Manicures

It’s time to take your regular nail art up a notch and make it three dimensional. It is all the rage this spring — we’ve seen beaded and velvet manicures on P!nk, Blake Lively and Jessica Biel. And it’s so much easier than you think!

Manicurist Tracey Reyes, who counts Vanessa Lachey among her clients, shows us how to do a lilac beaded manicure and a soft green velvet manicure using regular nail polish and simple items you can get at any craft store.

For the beaded manicure, you’ll want microbeads. And to execute the velvet manicure you’ll need flocking powder. Use them to add a whole new dimension to your everyday manicure.
