The last time we put in an order to our favorite nail supply company Born Pretty, I decided to try out one of their textured polishes. I never really jumped on the texture bandwagon because I prefer my nails to be smooth and shiny. But we should all try new things right?
They have so many colors and I chose this deep, royal blue and I'm loving it! It's not so dark that it looks black but it's not a bright, summery royal blue. Perfect for this horrific NY winter weather, ugh!
The application was perfect. It's not thick or goopy (is goopy a word? well now it is!). You don't see the full texture effect until it dries completely. The texture is definitely bumpy but it didn't make me feel like I had sand paper on my nails like I thought it would.
The only thing I don't like about textured polish is that you can't put topcoat on so it chips easier than any other mani. A topcoat smooths out all the texture and completely changes the look of the polish. I even tried using matte topcoat, but that smoothed it out too. Unfortunately, with my chaotic life, this is pretty much a 1 or 2 day polish. But I still really like this polish and I want to buy a few more colors.
