Sadly due to simply being busy I missed a few Manicure Monday
posts but I’m hoping to get a few scheduled for a few weeks. The weather in London has been getting a little more spring-y so I couldn’t help but bring out this beautiful mint green polish.
I would go as far as saying I had begun to fall out of love with the Barry M nail polishes, they’re a great price and decent quality but I owned all the ones I wanted. I felt that they simply weren’t doing anything new well at least nothing new that I was interested in (although they did bring out those fabulous glitters!
). I was so glad to find out that they have two new types of polishes; Textured Nail Effect and Gelly Nail Polishes. I have four of each and I must admit there are some true gems!
I decided to give Ridley Road a go yesterday one of their Textured Effect Nail paints. I know a few brands are doing these and I have some of the Nails Inc Concrete polishes but this is the first one I actually tried. At first I was a little unsure if I could apply more than one coat or if they are like the Crackle polishes which are one coat only. I applied two as this polish needed more than one and was left with this effect.
I expected the colour to be a little more like Mint by Barry M (that I blogged about many years ago) but I actually think I prefer it, it is much lighter meaning my hands look very tanned! I’m a little confused by the finish as although I wouldn’t say it is a matte polish the grain make it look less shiny and more like a semi-matte.
I thought the grains would drive me crazy but surprisingly they don’t although I do think it means you get more tip wear as they almost get caught a little more but nothing that is very bothering.
What do you think if this nail polish? Have you tried any textured polishes?
