Is there a better time of year to bust out your crushed velvet? I think not. I am sure if I go through some of my storage, I could find something that I own that is crushed velvet. But instead of wasting my time doing that and sporting something that I will look beyond unflattering, I think I will just swoon over one of the latest nail craves from Ciaté.
We all know that the latest nail trends are all about texture. You can’t go wrong with the latest Ciaté’s Velvet Manicure Kit ($19; sephora.com)
The set includes a lacquer, tube of crushed velvet powder, and a small application brush. Creating this velvet mani at home is easy: Coat your nails with the polish and sprinkle on your velvet fuzz. Brush off the excess and voila! Velvet nails that look and feel like the real thing! You will be the envy of all at your next Christmas party!
Choose from three shades: Berry Poncho (plum), Blue Suede (navy), and Mink Cashmere (grey).
