What’s Hot Now: Jessie J’s Violent Lips, Kanye’s Slippers & Fergie’s Nails
What’s hot right now? We’ve picked three of our current favorite things:
1. Violent Lips
The trendy Jessie J helped launch the success of Violent Lips, which are similar to Minx Nails with their fun patterns and easy application (shape, peel, wet and set). Violent Lips cost $14.95 for a set of three, and each temporary “lip tattoo” lasts about 4-8 hours. We should have seen this coming after the blue lipstick trend!
2. Velvet Slippers
Preppies have been wearing velvet slippers for years, but Kanye West takes the credit for popularizing sleek velvet slippers for men recently, and Del Toro is a brand who specializes in this category. The founders of Del Toro were three boarding-school buddies who badly wanted a pair of personalized velvet slippers for their graduation. Once they managed to source these superior quality shoes—handmade in Spain—at a reasonable price, they launched their company. You can get your Del Toro slippers with various embroidered patterns, or just plain solid colors. Prices vary in the $200-$350 range.
3. Claw Nails
Ok, so they’re not literally claws, but one swipe from these babies could seriously hurt someone. Forget the old square nails trend—sharp, pointy or rounded nails are where it’s at right now. Babes like Rihanna and Fergie helped mainstream this edgy trend and we’re totally sold.
