NOTD MUA Fluff & Cuddles

Hello lovelies, I hope your all well. 
 So when I saw pictures on Instagram of MUA's version of the velvet manicure  aptly named the "fur-effect nails" , I knew I needed to take a trip to Superdrug. Forever wanting to try something new I couldn't wait to get my hands on these Ciate inspired dupes. 

The fur effect collection contains five different shades of fluffy delights. Fluffy Bobbin (deep blue), Fluff and Cuddles (a deep pink/mauve shade), Fuzzy Fluff (bright pink), Boo Boo Fluff (bright light blue), Fluffy Puff (baby Pink). With the £2 price tag I had to stop myself from purchasing them all, however I sensibly opted for two, Fluffy puff (post here) and Fluff and Cuddles.

Fluff and Cuddles is a gorgeous dark pink/mauve shade, which also looks red in some lighting. 

To create the above look all you need to do is;
  • Prep nails with your choice of polish. I opted for Nails Inc's Victoria, a gorgeous deep oxblood red colour the perfect shade to create a contrast.
  • Then apply a second coat
  • Whilst wet press your nail down into the fluffy pot, until covered (I only applied fluffy puff to ring finger)
  • Finally brush excess off, Its as easy as that
MUA's fur-effect nails, is a rather effective and easy form of nail art. Like I mentioned in my previous post the only gripe I have is that the fur gets dirty rather quickly, and who wants dirty looking nails. 

Have you tried fur-effect nails??
What do you think of this furry trend??

  1. I love how simple it is to do, but I think I'd get annoyed with having furry nails!

    1. Its crazy simple. but I completely get what you mean, its why I only had a go on the one nail ;) haha xx

  2. Furry nails is definitely different! Does it last long?!Xx

    1. I took mine off after two days, cause it looked dirty, but if you do t mind that then I suppose it would probably last a good few days more :) xx

  3. I'd be worried about the fluff going funny when your hands get wet - does this happen? It does look pretty cool though :) xx

    1. I was a bit concerned but it seemed okay when I had a shower :).. the biggest problem was it getting dirty xx

  4. I really want to try out the fur effects, heard it washes off easily though :(
