Now, You Can Wear Fashion On Your Fingertips

Just a couple of years ago, the only "texture" most of us would try on our nails were those fun confetti topcoats. We'd paint our tips pretty shades, accent them with sparkly specks, and that's about it. Textures — other than matte or shiny — weren't something the casual, at-home manicurist had on her radar. But, now, with the advent of nail art, there's a smorgasbord of texture polishes to choose from.
The latest bottles to catch our eye aren't inspired by Pantone shades or designer duds. Instead, they're modeled after that silk blouse you're wearing. No, not the color — the fabric. That's right: Fabrics are ruling the nail world.

Of course, it doesn't stop at silk. You can sport anything from leather to lace as polish on your paws. Click through to see a handful of bottles to help you play up your wardrobe...on your fingertips.
Matching your clothes to your manicure never looked so good.

Is there anything sexier than black silk? This lacquer dries down to a matte metallic finish that's decidedly unique.

Ciaté also created the velvet manicure, which actually feels like the fabric itself.
