Your Monday Quickie is more nail art with texture polishes. Last Monday I showed you da Milani Texture polished I had just bought & this week I have 2 of those polishes plus 3 of da new Sally Hansen Sugar Coat texture polishes I found at Target last week.
Da line up: Sally Hansen Cotton Candies, Milani Spoiled in Fuchsia,
Sally Hansen Bubble Plum, Milani Purple Streak & Sally Hansen Razzleberry.
After last week's KSM, I opted to try a braided skittle mani. I started with 2 coats of each polish. Only da dark purple & blue were able to be used in one coat for da individual 'strands' & even then I needed to go over them a 2nd time on a few nails. All of da pinks & da light purple needed 2 coats to be opaque. I thought I was going to leave them without top coated cuz tc defeats da purpose of using texture polish, but alas, all those layers of polish were thick & kinda lumpy with lil bits of scratchy polish sticking up
& snagging on fabric.
So I added a coat of Seche Vite to tame da pokey bits. I could have used a crystal file to remove them, but I was worried that would leave spots where da color underneath would show thru. So yes, you can use texture polishes for nail art, I just recommend you limit da layers unless you like lumpy, scratchy nails.
