– They dry surprisingly really fast.

– They usually last 2 – 3 days. Velvet nail are different than other nails because they actually can attract dirt and as a consequence they can get dirty…much like clothes.

– They can be expensive and they can be very cheap.
– If you buy them from ciate, it will cost about $20 (As of 08/01/2012) for one bottle of polish and velvet flocking.
– If you buy the products needed online at, it will cost about $2 a bottle for flocking and up to $8 for polish.
