Beauty Test Lab: The Velvet Manicure

Ever since we first laid eyes on the velvet nails created by Keri Blair at Ruffian's fall '12 show, we've been mesmerized. A manicure inspired by one of the most luxe, ladylike fabrics known to (wo)man? Um, yes, please.
Now that fall is finally here, we think it's high time we gave this opulent trend a try. Fortunately for us, Ciaté, the mad manicure geniuses behind the Caviar Nail kit, are first on the scene with its new Velvet Manicure. Here, senior beauty editor Megan McIntyre tests out the kit in an attempt to get her fingertips all fuzzy wuzzy for fall. Find out if this trend lives up to the hype!
Ciaté Velvet Manicure, $19, available at Sephora.
