Step Into Summer Challenge - 3D

I had a really tough time finding inspiration for this one, I don't have any 3D nail decorations so I didn't know what to do. Someone in the Hobby Polish Bloggers group on Facebook had the same problem and asked for suggestions, she got tons of answers, someone suggested textured polishes and I jumped for it!

My only two textured polishes OPI - Stay The Night and OPI - Magazine Cover Mouse.

The gradient isn't perfect but I like it! I found it a little hard to do a gradient with textured polishes and the cleanup was almost painful, I got a little frustrated with it... >.<


So three down, five to go, I have to step up my game!!

I went and ordered some 3D nail decorations and was hoping to get them before I decided to use the textured polishes, the irony is that while I was typing this post I hear the delivery man putting my package with the stuff through my mail hatch (do you say hatch?).

Well off to smell the grass!!

    1. Thank you Lisa :) I'm pretty happy with the outcome, even though the texture was a little difficult to handle.

  2. I *hate* doing clean-up on textured & glitter polishes. Such a pain! But I love what you did here. :)

    1. Thank you:) It's really tedious, and time consuming, phew.
