Texture is an element that has grown tremendous popularity in the past few seasons. From hair to fabrics, jewelry and even nails, texture has proven to be one of the most influential trends of the season.  Texture can be created with fabric, color, metals and movement. It plays off of the reflection of light and can create depth and highlights using all kinds of forms.  


From glitter lips and studded hair at Fendi, to flowered faces at Preen By Thornton Bregazzi and curls at Chloe. As for the nails, we saw some serious structure at Libertine SS17; the designs were to die for! From chains to tassels, jewels and 3D art, the tiny canvases that donned model’s nails definitely stole the show!


We saw velvet on the runway at Valentino, Prada, Fendi and Ralph Lauren this year and loved every minute of it! To expand on the trend of texture in nails this year, CND shows us how to create a textured nail with the beauty of crushed velvet using Garnet Glamour and Black Pool. Follow along with the tutorial below to unleash a little textured glam on your nails.
