I've heard of the Velvet manicure:
(Best in Show: Ciate)
(Done by...well, everybody in 2011!)
The Magnetic Manicure:
(Check out Essie's Reptyle Skin looking version!)
EVEN....The Caviar Manicure!
(also done by Ciate!)
But....the newest is...the CONCRETE manicure?
Check out Nails Inc's new CONCRETE finish polish:
Its like putting the curb on your fingertips! This ultra thick textured mani really looks like you dipped your tips in a cement mixer!!! Hmmm....still trying to learn the appeal on this one!
In four shades (PS- stay away from the red, its heinous!)
You can get this crazy textured look, and might I suggest investing in some pure acetone, or its never coming off!
Mariah Carey had a different description in mind, when her mid-winter OPI collection launched and called the same finish "Liquid Sand" (which I should add, that anyone will tell you....that's essentially what concrete is. Interesting!)
Her liquid sand collection features four fun shades
And I am LOVING "Stay the Night" Its like the fashionable version of concrete, if that is even a thing!
My tip on this trend, avoid pinks and reds.....it just doesn't work in this finish!
