The Next Big Thing In Nails: Leather Polish

Nail art has definitely come a looooong way, especially in the last couple of years. First, there were the glitter polishes, followed by gel manicures, nail polish strips, magnetic polishes, caviar manicures then velvet and diamonds, and now comes leather – YES you read it right!

The trend started in the UK all thanks to the new Bling It On Leather & Skulls Set by my favorite nail brand, Nails Inc.. The polish is said to go on glossy and dries to a leathery finish and comes with four blinged up skull ornaments. There are also two different shades available, Black as spotted on Alexa Chung at the British Fashion Awards above and Tan.

The Bling It On Leather and Skulls Set will make its way across the pond on December 26th at selected Sephora stores and for $25 and in the UK alone, the waiting list has already reached over 800! Will you be getting yourself some leather polish? I know I definitely am!
