Split Textured Nail Art

Today’s nail art only requires a relatively steady hand and explores mixing textures as nail polishes are now available in more than just the classic glitters and cremes! Nicole by OPI’s Gumdrops Collection has got to be one of my FAVOURITE textured collections as there is glitter mixed in as well! Today’s tutorial will be the first of in a series of experiementing and having fun with textured nail polish, so let’s get started!

Supplies:
Base coat
Nicole by OPI – Cinna-Man of My Dreams (textured polish)
Nicole by OPI – Totally in the Dark (non-textured polish)

 Notice the lack of top coat? For textured polishes, having no top coat is encouraged!

After applying your base coat to protect your nails, apply two coats of Cinna-Man of my Dreams.

Isn’t this polish stunning? It’s like looking at glittery sand!

Using your non-textured polish, paint just half of your nail to create your “split textured” nails.

Textured polishes always look a little bit more matte in finish even if there is sparkle in them which makes this mani that much more interesting!

Admire what a cool effect the non-textured polish has over top the textured polish!

I think this is a lovely combination for Fall and if you haven’t tried a polish from the Nicole by OPI Gumdrops Collection yet, I highly recommend that you do! They are a ton of fun to wear!
