Leather, Furry Nail Polish: Why Didn't I Think of That?
5/15/2013, 12:29 p.m.
Remember the time when you applied way too many coats of fingernail polish to your nails, and when you were done, they had a strange leathery effect? Or remember when you were polishing your nails in bed and accidentally fell asleep, and when you woke up, your nails had sheet marks all over them? Surely there was a time when you polished your toe nails and then walked through carpet while they were still wet, and your toes ended up looking a little wooly. Well get this, some very smart individuals have created a niche market, based off of these kinds of fingernail-polishing goof-ups.
Yes, someone out there is developing a "look" based off of human error...they are marketing "fashionable" polish textures are lacquers. Check out the two "grooviest" looks: leather and fur!
Look down at your fingernail polish right now. Is it textured? Does it have dimension? Does it feel furry? Answering "no" to all three of these questions indicates one thing: You did a fine job of applying your traditional (yet boring) flat surface finger nail polish.
Now go out and try a textured polish or lacquer...and then show it off to all your friends on Facebook.
