Your Monday Quickie is all about texture! I picked up 2 Milani Texture polishes at my local Fred Meyer & another at Milani's web site during a half price sale the had last month. I haven't been too sure about this texture fad. I know when I have flocking, fish eggs, studs or other 3D embellishments on my nails, I tend to get distracted by it...running my finger tips over the raised bits almost obsessively.
How bad would my OCD get when da whole nail is covered with texture? Let's find out...
Da line up: Milani Texture in Spoiled in Fuchsia, Purple Streak & Shady Gray
This is 2 coats of each. The texture becomes more obvious as da polish cures.
TA DA! Yeah, I know...I just can't leave well enuf alone. LOL I added Double Line French Tips to both pinky & thumb, dots using my largest dotting tool on both index & ring, & stripes using my short striper on da middle finger. I had to go over everything twice to get good coverage, but getting the texture was worth it! While I enjoyed the sand papery feel of it & da semi gloss finish, I wondered...
How much would top coat eliminate the texture?
Not as much as I thot it might!
While it did soften the effect, the coat of Seche Vite mostly just added high shine.
The polish still had texture, just more like textured walls than sand paper.
I don't how far into this current fad I'll get, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
Thanks for stopping by!
