Faux fur for your nails? Yes, it's really a thing

If you've ever looked at the various nail art trends popular right now and thought "these nails need more fur," then, boy, do we have something for you!

Jan Arnold, style director and co-founder of CND nail polish, accessorized models at the Libertine fall/winter 2016 fashion show with faux fur nails... as in, nails that have little patches of fur stuck on top.

To create the furry fingers, Arnold and the CND team brushed the models' nails with Vinylux Weekly Polish in the colors Rubble and Cream Pull and then attached the little tufts of fur with Super Shiney High-Gloss Top Coat, according to Cosmopolitan.


The results are truly bizarre, but in a high-concept fashion sort of way. It's difficult to imagine them taking off as a real trend, but bubble nails were a thing in 2015 so anything is possible, really.

That said, there's plenty of potential to take this into faux furs with cheetah and leopard prints. It's a way to put some fur into your outfit without going full Kardashian in a floor-length fake fur coat.

Plus, don't underestimate the power of having fur on your fingers for a mid-afternoon mini-massage. Just rub those little tufts all over your face — it's like petting a cat without all the pesky litter box cleaning.
