Digit-al Dozen: Vampy Textured Pattern

Greetings and Nailutations,

I'm back with a textured pattern for the Digit-al Dozen theme: Vampy.  I was inspired by some dark and sultry velvet upholstry patterns.  Oh yes...sexy couches..haha!  I decided to tackle my nemesis - textured polish (I can't handle it for long periods of time on my nails - nails should be smooooooooth.).  I will admit that I loved the look - and I love the look of textured polish.  Maybe I can learn to love texture on my nails...(after a few glasses of wine).  And be sure to check the bottom of the post for some other vampy looks from my fellow Digit-al Dozen members!




I started out with a black canvas of Drip Drop Nail Paint - Yoga Pants (a fabulous 1 coater) and ensured that was completely dry using Dream Polish - Gem Glam Top Coat before I used Nails Redesigned vinyls and Zoya - Chyna.



Products used:
Drip Drop Nail Paint - Yoga Pants (black)
Zoya - Chyna Pixie Dust (textured red glitter)
Dream Polish - Gem Glam Top Coat and Gem Block Liquid Latex
Nails Redesigned - vinyls (pattern)
Clear Jelly Stamper - The Bling Brush

 Here is the final look!






Thanks for reading!  Tomorrow continues with another vampy look!

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails

  4. The Pixie Dust makes a great contrast to the black cream for nail art.

  5. I have the same feelings when it comes to textured polishes but I love what you did with yours! I have a few Pixie Dusts and admire them from afar or use them for looks because I can't stand the gritty feel of wearing them for long periods of times eeek lol
