Is It Weird That We Have An Uncontrollable Urge To Pet These Nails?

creatures-comfort-nails
Forgive us for being forward, random model's hand, but would you think us crass for saying we're hypnotized by your fuzzy nails? Longtime readers know that we've got quite the thing for textured nails — especially those of the fluffy variety — so, obviously, when we saw these digits backstage at Creatures of Comfort's fall '13 presentation, we had to bring them to your attention.
The collection itself was inspired by sculptor Louise Bourgeois, and the nails play off the textural focus of the clothing — knits, quilted fabrics, printed chiffon, and lightweight materials abound. The nails were created using Priti's Cobweb Hen polish and a sprinkling of flocking powder. We'd also like to draw your attention to the fabulousness of that elongated oval shape of the nails. It's very graphic, elegant, and — dare we say it — sculptural, which lends itself perfectly to the theme. We get that they're not practical and that the minute you wash your hands these little beauties will be forever ruined, but dammit, we love them anyways.
Are you digging these downy digits as much as we are, or do furry fingers freak you out?
