If you've been around our blog for awhile then you know that we have a special soft spot for nail polishes. One might even say that we are a tad obsessed. We love our polishes so much that we even dedicate a monthly post to showcase a polish of the month (as seen here: POTM). Nail trends come and go and most recently it's been all about adding texture to your mani. OPI came out with the Liquid Sand textured polishes and Zoya now has the Pixie Dust polishes, which are beautiful. We just discovered that Nails Inc. London has a line of polishes called Leather Effect. It's new out at Sephora.
What Sephora Says:
What it is:
A leather-effect polish with a high-fashion, textured finish.
What it does:
This polish applies glossy but dries down into a chic leather look without the need for a top coat. Each polish comes with a leather-effect cap that will ensure that the products look as fabulous on your dressing table as they do on your nails. These new shades are ideal for nailing the texture trend.
Available in 5 Shades:
Clerkenwell - Buff
Ladbroke Grove - Pink Coral
Dalston - Pale Blue
Old Crompton Street - Gray
Noho - Black
What else you need to know:
Leather effect polish dries very quickly giving you fashion forward nails in an instant.
How to use:
-Apply one coat of your chosen base coat.
-Apply one coat of Leather Effect polish. Wait two minutes and then apply a second coat. The leather effect will appear as the polish dries.
-Do not apply a top coat as this will take away the leather effect. Allow polish to dry for a few minutes.

What do you guys think? Are you into wearing a little texture on your nails or do you think this is a trend that needs to make an exit? These come in some pretty shades and we are kind of curious if the effect really does look "leathery". We'd love to hear from you guys, so please leave us a comment and let us know if this is a "love it or leave it".
