Rihanna's Velvet Manicure

Rihanna is famous for pioneering weird, wonderful and out-there beauty trends. The Barbadian beauty recently took to her Twitter account to showcase her latest manicure (well it would be rude not to) but, and in true Rihanna style, it’s no ordinary nails that she’s sporting.

Ditching the fierce pointed talons she’s famous for in favour of kookier, round nail tipped with suede – yes, suede – well actually more like velvet or fuzzy felt in texture, created by LA Nail artist Kimmie Kyees, Ri-Ri's regular manicurist, using Velveteen by Original Sugar

Ciate Velvet Manicure in Berry Poncho

The trend plays on the texture of the nail rather than the nail itself, a trend that seems to be gathering momentum. Ciate, of the Caviar manicure fame, launched their own amazing at-home velvet manicure which were an instant sell-out. We love their Berry Poncho, £14 for a unique but luxurious twist on a classic autumnal shade, especially when you wear it like Rihanna in a French Manicure stylee!
