How to make your own glitter nail polish

The Velvet Nails trend promises a soft, velvety manicure look. We reveal what lies behind the manicure and what twists you can use to give it a modern twist.

Velvet nails: trendy manicure with velvet shine

Velvet nails are definitely one of the hottest nail polish trends for 2024. They give every monochromatic look a velvety shimmer and make it shine in the sunlight. The nail design gives your nails a shiny, elegant surface and is reminiscent of the velvety material that gave it its name. The nail design can be done on natural nails and gel nails in almost all colors. Dark nail polish colors such as emerald green, blue or black look elegant and festive, while light colors such as pink, champagne and pastels suit every occasion and capture the shiny effect beautifully.

Velvet nails with a cool touch

A special Velvet Nails update is currently circulating on social media: a twisted paper clip attached to a magnet is used to create a heart design on the surface of the nail. The magnetic forces move the glitter powder into a heart shape through the ends of the paper clip.
