Question
what happens when you wash your hands...

answer 1
I would lightly wash my hands, and gently dry them off, almost pat them dry. The velvet would at first be a little damp, but dried quickly. They lasted me well through the day and night when I first had them done. But the following day (after a shower and washing dishes) the velvet lost its pretty fluff look, but a neat rough texture remained.

It does not really come off when you wash your hands, it does get wet, but then it dries. It rubs off then you do day to day things though.

It looks like nail polish that was smudged and bubbled. The velvet texture goes away.

Question
Hand washing?
I wash my hands very often throughout the day, I was very curious if this would hold up after being wet often or if the velvet would fall off because of being wet too often. I dont want to waste money if it will ruin easily.

I was worried about this as well. The velvet texture stayed in tack for about 3 days for me (with frequent hand-washing/dish-washing) and then slowly started to change texture.

Yes, it lasts through hand washings and showers. But the velvet does start to wear off a bit in about a day and you have a matte textured finish that in my opinion is still unique. I would put it on a couple of hours before a special occasion for the best effect.

If u apply an additional coat of polish and powder AND u dip instead of shaking the powder, u get a thicker coating ... Dust with brush, wait 15-20 mins and it hardens. Mine lasted almost a week.

I wouldnt waste my money. I did mine last night, following all the instructions to a T only for it to be gone once I washed my hands. try it with a low cost similar item from your craft store. I was throughly dissapointed in the results.

YES! Very easy. They even include a little tray to help catch the fallout so you can return it to the bottle without wasting a ton of extra velvet.

The velvet is super easy to apply. Just polish, sprinkle & sweep away the left overs on the nails. Its simple! But the downfall is the velvet doesn't last long.

No sadly it's not. I had to take the cap shaker off because the nail polish was drying too fast before I could completely cover the nail with the velvet. I would recommend dumping it on or maybe perhaps spooning it on.

That isn't a lip color, that is a nail on the lips. See more examples on the Caviar boxes and such. Great design idea, but a bit confusing.

should I buy this?
I have so many reviews on this nail polish and most are polar opposites. I've seen some that are really great that say this is a must-have and some that say this product is horrible and gets everywhere. Should I get it?

Well, this product is fun, and does give you a unique look for like...several hours. So, if you are the type that is willing to do your nail specifically when you go out or trying to use this product in a sleepover party, buy it! However, I won't suggest to get it if you just want a everyday polish.

I grabbed this product when it was on sale. See if you can do the same... It was a fun product to try but I would not repurchase and I would have regretted the purchase if I had bought it full price.

Hope that helps.

It looks pretty but it doesn't last that long. If you put a top coat on top of the nail and than reapply more velvet powder it will last about 5 days so it improves. It looks nice and different

Question
I wear contacts. I know that if you don't have a top coat on your polish it will come off in contact solution. How about the velvet coating?
As a contact wearer, the first time I tried to use a set of new contacts when I had polished my nails the night before but not used a top coat, the color bled into the contact solution making my contacts unwearable due to the residue. What happens with this velvet coated polish?

answer 2
I'm a contact lens wearer and used this polish. You don't use a topcoat because it defeats the purpose. This is no a long lasting nail application. The velvet diminishes VERY quickly. It is as fine as thick dust, and can irritate your eyes during the application process (as you shake the velvet onto your nails as directed) as well as after the nails have "dried" if you touch your face or rub your yes a lot. My mom actually thought I had a problem with my eyes the night I wore this polish because I had cleared a stray eyelash which resulted in several hours of rubbing my eyes and the pink/red irritation which comes from that. I do not recommend application of the velvet if you wear contact lenses, though the colors themselves appear to be of high quality and fast drying if you like them and want to use without the velvet.

I found velvet fuzz on everything for days (I don't wear contacts). I would suggest against it, or at least wait until the last day before you switch to a new pair of contacts in case it ruins them. If you're really hard core, you could always wear latex gloves to put them in...

I don't think so. I think they just use the same color lipstick (or even photoshop the lip into the same color) when they did it.
