Beauty Velvet: The Ciaté Velvet Manicure + D&G Velvet Perfume Collection

By BBJ Intern Julia Casella

Ciaté Velvet manicure

Velvet is a word reserved for luxury–or making un-luxurious items (like cupcakes) instantly desirable. Luckily for us, beauty products are already glam but these two velvet inspired goodies reach a new level of allure. Read on..

The Ciaté Velvet manicure is a two-step process where you dust “crushed velvet” powder on your nails for a chic, matte finish.

The Renaissance-inspired Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Perfume Collection has 6 soft scents to spray for whatever mood you’re in. My favorite is Velvet Desire, which, unlike actually the actual fabric, doesn’t feel heavy with its sophisticated floral notes.

The Ciaté Velvet Manicure is available at sephora.com for $19 and the Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Perfume is available at saksfifthavenue.com for $195.

Will you embrace beauty velvet for fall?
