I love the textured finish and I have quite a few nail polishes like that.
However, I find myself not reaching for them as often just because doing nail art over them is so hard and I wouldn't want to apply a topcoat to make it easier, just 'cause then we'd miss the whole point of having a texturized polish, right?
Anyway, I solved my problem today and found the key to wearing my pretty texture polishes more often!
Can you guess how I made these?
How do you like it?
I mean, look at this gorgeous polish!
Isn't it a shame I don't wear it more often? I love that it's a discreet, elegant shade, but with a hint of pretty sparkle! :)
You probably remember this from when I swatched it (here) but in case you don't this is Kiko Sugar Mat Light Taupe - No.455.
If you haven't guessed yet, this is what I used to draw the flowers :)
It's a fine tip black marker. The greatest thing about using it with texture polishes is you don't need to topcoat it, so your drawing won't smudge.
Also it's the simplest way of adding some nail art - you can even do it while you wait for your bus to arrive or during your lunch break.
You don't need brushes and paint, this lil' marker is all you'll need :)
'Cause I wanted to keep it simple, I just added a small black rounded stud on my ring finger and pinkie.
And the end result is pretty cute, don't you think?
Have you ever tried this? Let me know and if you haven't, I hope you will ;)
