Textured Polka Dot Nail ArtEver since textured polish has taken the nail polish world by storm I’ve been wanting to try to do textured polka dots. I wasn’t entirely sure how it would work or if it would work at all. Turns out it worked though definitely takes a little bit more effort than your normal polka dots.

The base polish is Revlon Eclectic (which is not my favorite formula wise but I do think it is a lovely color). I thought a bright pink would contrast the pale green nicely so I used China Glaze Bump & Grind for my textured polka dots.

The key to getting enough of the texture onto the nails is to do 2 layers of polka dots and be very patient as far as drying time goes. The texture comes out more and more as it dries. My polka dots needed a good 10 minutes before the texture fully developed.

I’m not sure this is something I would do often but it was fun for a change!

As always there are more swatches below the jump 🙂

    Keep the ideas coming! I just got all six of the CG textures yesterday (shopping channel had a sale, I have a MIL who does not have a paypal account, you get the idea). I’m STILL not sure what I think, but I have to do something with them! Maybe I’ll spot two or more colors together on each nail to make it look like lava rock. But I like your idea too, it looks kind of ‘Flintstones’-ish!

      It took awhile for textured polishes to grow on me! I just got all the polishes from the JulieG Gumdrops collection. Alot more posts like this coming in the future, lol

What do you think?
