One of the hot nail trends of 2013 — on and off the runway — is a textured nail look. From caviar and confetti to matte and sand, the tactile feel is in. But what if grainy nails aren’t your cup of tea? We say, fake it. These faux textured looks are sure to spark some interest and can be done with little more than nail polish, acrylic paints, and brushes.
We’d love to see you create your own faux textured looks. Upload your own photos of faux textures on Instagram and Twitter and use the hashtags #fauxtexturenails and #nailsmagazine.
