Velveteen Rabbit Approved!
I love this nail polish! I originally bought it for senior portraits, but this shade is proving to be a great everyday neutral! I wasn't a fan of nudes before, but Velveteen's pinky-mauve undertone (as well as 100% Pure lipsticks) helped me change my attitude toward them! I would say that on my right (dominant) hand, the polish goes almost a week without chipping. It lasts much longer on my left hand. The staying power is there; and even though I can't smell, the polish doesn't smell as bad as my old chemical-laden nail polish (my mom couldn't detect a scent, but a nail tech at the salon could). Velveteen has become a new favorite, and I would definitely repurchase! I love the name since it reminds me of "The Velveteen Rabbit" (hence the title name) and this polish isn't tested on animals!
Such a Pretty Color
I have light tan skin and this pink works very well with it! I've gotten many compliments on it. I've noticed it fades at the edges after a couple of days (but to be fair, I'm not putting on a base polish or top polish and I wash my hands frequently, so this probably doesn't help). Will definitely repurchase.
I knew the benefits of using nail products that don't contain toxic chemicals. However, I did not expect the products to be smoother and easier to apply. Another big plus is that the polish is shinier and does not chip as easily as regular polish. The shade matched the sample color on the website perfectly! I am thrilled with this product and will only use this brand from now on.
Head over heels!
I LOVE the Velveteen color! It’s a perfectly dark nude - slightly darker than my tan skin tone and matte enough so that it doesn’t look GLOSSY but has a nice subtle finish. I am in love! The only issue is that the applicator isn’t the easiest to use - pretty flimsy and not the easiest to grip. But that’s sort of an issue with a lot of nail polishes and totally not a dealbreaker.
This color is beautiful -- a richer/ darker pink -- and work appropriate. It also stays really well!!! My only wish is that there was a thicker application brush for it, as I found it a little difficult to apply evenly. I waited nearly an hour, but when I applied the clear top coat it separated some of the color in areas that were maybe a bit thicker. (To be fair, I don't paint my nails all that regularly, so others might not have this problem).
