I am back with another sand style polish. Can you tell I am totally hooked on this finish?! It probably is one of those nail art trends that you either love or hate and I admit I was skeptical at first, too. What could be so special and new about a gritty glitter finish? Well, it turns out that the textured finish is far from being gritty. They feel more like fine sand paper and do not catch clothes. They do not require top coat and dry quickly on their own, which is always a plus when I am short on time. Another bonus is, that most of them wear like iron on me and I can get a week of wear out of them without any chips, cracks or tip wear. In short, textured polishes are my go to option for busy and stressful work weeks. And sadly my past three work weeks have been super busy, hence the lack of posts. I had to attend a scientific meeting last week, so I thought I'd rather put on a more decent shade to not scare off a potential future boss ;) I picked Zoya Godiva from their Pixie Dust range. It is a pretty nude shade with silver microglitter.
I was surprised how well the nude color of Zoya Godiva went with my skin tone. Some of these shades tend to give me lobster hands, but not this one. Compared to other textured polishes I own, Godiva was on the sheer side. I did threee coats here and there still was some visible nail line. Other than that, I love this polish! It has pretty silver micro glitter, that gives the nude base a lot more depth. Unlike regular glitter polishes, these can be removed without foil or acetone - me likey.
How do you like textured polishes? And let me know what is your go to nail polish solution when you're in a hurry!
