The innovation and creativity of nail art always amazes me. From recent trends like the caviar mani to 3-D nails, there’s no shortage of imaginative ways to dress your digits.

The latest sensation calls on one of fall’s more prominent trends — velvet — by creating a way to mimic the material on your nails. As Necole Bitchie reports, the velvet manicure “is a combination of layering a matte polish paired with a powdery texture that looks like crushed velvet for a very textured effect.”

The velvet manicure nail kit, a collaboration between Ciaté (responsible for the caviar manicure) and Leah Light, is now available at Sephora.

Glamour.com offers instructions for applying velvet manis:

-Apply your first coat of color on one nail at a time, and apply a generous sprinkle of crushed velvet to each wet nail.
-Use the black brush to sweep away any excess velvet, which can be captured in the accompanying tray. Don’t discard it; pour it back into the bottle.
-Because of the 3-D texture, there’s no need for a top coat.

The groundbreaking look will undoubtedly be a hit this fall among beauty mavens who love embracing the new and the next.

Is this a look you would rock, Clutchettes? What do you think of the velvet manicure?
