As the nail art scene continues to grow, we’re certainly seeing no shortage of fun textures to play with on our tips. We’ve already tried colorful caviar nails, fuzzy velvet manis, and now—drum roll—comes leather! We were tipped off to this amazingness thanks to Alexa Chung. She tweeted, “Aaaaannnnnndddd thanks @nailsinc for my leather nails! #kinky” to which we IMMEDIATELY hopped on Google to find out what “leather nails” actually entailed. As it turns out, leather nails TOTALLY exist, and it comes in a easy-to-apply packaged set to try out ourselves. Eeeee!
Nails Inc. London created the Bling It On black leather and skulls set, which comes with leather effect black nail polish and crystal skull embellishments to add as accents. Apparently the polish “applies glossy but will dry down into a chic leather look texture,” which means it’ll take almost no work at all to achieve this badass look. YESSS. It also comes in a tan color, but sadly, it’s not available to buy JUST yet. It’ll hit NailsInc.com soon, so you better start polishing up those nail painting skills! #WERK
