Untried Challenge Day 5: Prettiest

Hello everybody. Sorry I am a day late with this challenge. Today I decided to go out of order a bit because I did a mani with my new Bond Girls liquid sand polishes and I really wanted to show you how pretty they are. This manicure uses Solitaire (white) and Tiffany Case (blue). I did a simple dotting manicure. Here are the results:

Tiffany Case and Solitaire

Another angle

Both of these pictures were taken without the use of top coat (don't use top coat with textured nail polish!) I used three coats of each polish and added the dots using a tooth pick. I then, reluctantly, broke the rule of no top coat just so you all could see what this looks like with it on. I used one coat of Seche:

As you can see, the colors are a little more shiny than they would be without the top coat, but I really think  that it is a sin (in most cases) to use a top coat with a textured polish. I guess that's a matter of opinion. I also guess it's kind of cool to be able to get two (slightly) different looks out of a nail polish. I absolutely love Tiffany Case and I know my collection of this line won't be unused for long! Until next time (also remember to check out the other people involved in the challenge):

  1. Cute dotticure :) For me it has to be with top coat though, the textured look has yet to win me over!

    1. Thank you! And I actually thought that textured polish was kind of ugly when I first saw it.

  2. I lovelovelove both of those colours, I got them plus Pussy Galore and I use them on my toes all the time :D I love the way you used the dotting, very cute :)

    1. Thank you! I have Jynx on my toes at the moment lol. I love this collection so much.

  3. omgosh, that would be pretty without the texture, but the liquid sand thing takes it up a notch! So pretty!

    1. Thank you so much! I love experimenting with these textured polishes. :)
