So I told you already - at first I thought this was a horrible trend. And then I tried it on... and fell in love! So it's clear that I'm going to have to play with the textures around some more! For today I have a textured gradient for you. It's very subtle but I think I like it. I just managed to ruin it with the wrong stamping LOL
I then sponged about half of my nail with a little bit of Kiko #633 - a darker pink textured polish from the same collection and sponged the tips with Kiko #632, the red polish of the same collection. But I felt the effect was too blunt and I didn't like it so I sponged the whole nail with my base pink - Kiko #634. That made everything a lot lot more subtle. And I prefer it this way. The sponging also made the texture look a lot more like sugar coated, which I also totally love. And no, it doesn't feel on the nail as thick as it may look in the pictures ;-)
Sadly, I had to go and ruin this lovely sugar mani with some stamping. Well, it's not the stamping itself that I feel like ruined my mani, but my choice of the stamp. I don't know why I thought Argyle would be the right pattern for this. It's not. Oh well... I used Zoya Suri for the stamping on all my nails but the ring, which was stamped with Zoya Juno. It wasn't intentional really. I just always start with my ring nail and I get to my pinky last. Don't know why... So I started with Zoya Juno but figured it was too light so I changed to Suri. But when this mani was all done, I didn't like it enough to redo my ring...
What do you think? Do you have the Kiko Sugar Mats? What do you think of the texture trend?
