Trying out new beauty trends is always fun. In this case, a textured velvet mani by Ciaté in a rich plum colour. The whole concept is very interesting as it gives people the chance to wear a texture on your fingertips. I bought my kit at Sephora in Vancouver where they have a royal blue and matte grey colour available as well. The whole application takes time but dusting your nails with a salt shaker of crushed velvet powder keeps things entertaining.
