Hello lovelies!
I have a quick post for you guys today because you know, the usual, it’s late and I have class super early.
So, onto the nails!

At least this quick post will be fun because this is the first time I’ve ever shown a textured polish on the blog without topcoat. I know, crazy right?!

Here’s what I used:
I just realized that I forgot to put the studs in the photo but they’re from bornprettystore and you can find them here. I wanted to join back in on the N.A.I.L. Linkups, I missed last week’s post, but this week called for a textured polish so I went for it and tried wearing one. These nails didn’t even last 24 hours because I couldn’t stand the feeling of them. I could hear the polish rubbing against my clothes and when I touched my face it felt rough. So, nope, I can’t do it. Gotta give me credit for trying though. Right?

Anyways, these nails started with three coats of Grass Is Lime Greener and a layer of HK Girl. I then used paper reinforcements to mark off the half moon shapes and applied one coat of Galaxy. The studs were just attached with a little dab of top coat because I didn’t plan on wearing these any longer.

Ignoring my dislike for the textured feeling, I still like these nails! I’ve been really into the half moon design lately and I loved the studs. Galaxy will still end up getting used quite a bit because it’s a beautiful polish with top coat (see here)!
Thanks for reading guys!

  • Thanks!

  • Brethil Ebontree

    I really like textured polishes and love the combination you did here with the pop of neon!

  • Thank you! (:

  • Thank you! I'm glad you like it!!

  • Aww thank you so much!! (:

  • Haha thank you! I do agree that the difference of textures was interesting….at least for an hour than it was no good haha!

  • Haha thanks! And yes you do! It's an awesome color!

  • Thanks! (:

  • Thank you!!

  • Haha thanks! That's what I keep getting told so I think I need to try out a different brand before I completely write them off

  • Thank you! (:

  • Thanks!

  • Haha I was doing that but it wasn't a pleasant feeling /: Thank you though!

  • Thank you! Yeah, a lot of people have been suggesting that I try the original pixie dusts because they aren't as gritty? I guess I'll have to try one out!

  • Thank you! And yeah, I don't think I could do it again haha!

  • Aww thanks! (:

  • Thank you!!

  • je n'aime pas les vernis texturés mais j'aime beaucoup beaucoup ce que tu as fait c'est très sympa =)

    I love texture polish and I love this mani! The colors you used plus the cream and texture look great!

  • I'm not big into textured polish either, but this does look great on you! The contrast of the smooth neon and dark textured and then the addition of that almost pastel-looking stud is a great combo! It's always good to try new things 🙂

    Cool! Kick-ass mani 😀 I really need Grass is Lime Greener…

  • This is such a cute and fun mani! Love the studs 🙂

  • These are really cute, the texture really adds to the visual effect!

  • Fair dues for at least trying the textured look – although I do think that particular one looks very very rough. Regardless, this look is absolutely adorable!

  • I totally do that too!

  • I love how cute and unexpected these are! Great job!

  • Oooh love the texture effect against the lime color. Gorgeous!

  • Novita Erasma

    Haha am I the only one who like to rub my nails when wearing textured then? I love the simple design btw, the color combo + studs really works together well!

  • That's great coverage for 1 coat of galaxy! Props for trying a textured polish without top coat. I'm like you and not a huge fan of the textured feeling for some reason the original pixie's from Zoya don't bother me as much though.

  • I really love the look of these textured half-moons!
    But… I'm right there with you. I almost had a nervous breakdown the day I tried wearing it to work. You still get mad respect for trying though!

  • What a fun use of texture! I really like this 🙂

  • Nice half moon manicure here. That green really pops against that dark texture.
