If you want your nails to be totally on-trend, it’s all about tipping them with velvet, according to one glossy magazine.
And no, they’re not talking about yet another racy BBC drama, but varnish company Ciate’s latest creation: the velvet manicure.
Available in three colours (Mink Cashmere, Berry Poncho and Blue Suede), the 9 kits include a polish, a tube of shredded crushed velvet in the same colour as the varnish and a small brush.
The blue suede velvet manicure gives the perfect soft touch
You simply paint your nails as usual then sprinkle the fibres over them while they’re wet.
When the polish dries you’re left with soft-to-the-touch nails that look as though they’re wearing a fuzzy cashmere jumper.
The berry poncho set comes complete with everything you need for the perfect nails
Unfortunately, they won’t keep your fingers warm at night but they will nail you some attention.
