Concrete manicure: the new trend of 2013
While caviar and velvet manicures may have been hot beauty news in 2012, next year is all about the concrete nail varnish.
After Alexa Chung’s leather polish went on to sell out in seconds, Nails Inc have unveiled the concrete manicure and it looks set to be just as popular.
The experts at Nails Inc. explain how their latest polish adds “urban appeal” to its cult collection of nail polishes.
When the polish dries it has a matte, concrete-like consistency and appearance, which the brand maintain is perfect to pair with this season’s military trend.
Famous fans of textured nail varnish looks include Blake Lively, who wore velvet nails on her wedding day with Ryan Reynolds, Rihanna, Katy Perry and, of course, fashion muse Alexa Chung.
The £12 ($18) bottle is available from Selfridges in neutral “London Wall”, a deep red “Marble Arch”, a pastel green named “Monument”, as well as “Stonehenge”- a vibrant blue hue.
