Stamped Textured Nails

Hi hi!! 
I'm really loving this new textured and sand nail polish trend right now! I love that it's different and how the nail polish feels somewhat scratchy. It's just cool! What do you think about it? 
 I already own the OPI liquid sand polishes and I love them but when I saw that Milani was going to release textured polishes I was excited! The colors are just bright and the polishes don't have glitter like the OPI ones. I looked for them for about 2 weeks before I finally found them. Once I got then home I couldn't wait to try them out!

I used the red and yellow and just did plainly painted my nails with them. The texture on these polishes feels a bit bigger than other textured polishes.

The texture on these polishes feels a bit bigger than other textured polishes. I just love that even though the polish dries matte they don't look boring (not that matte nails look boring because I love them too).

After I wore them plain on my nails for a day I started wondering how they would look if I did some stamping on them. I just picked two different stamping plates and polishes and tried it out!

I liked how it looked stamped too! Just like with normal nail polish the stamped image can smear a little during the stamping process but it's no big deal. I didn't add a topcoat once I was done cause I wanted to keep the textured polish matte and see how the stamping would wear without it.

It turns out that the stamping polish works just fine with no topcoat and looks just as cool after a few days of wear. I can't wait to see what other textured polishes get released with this cool new trend! 

I hope you liked this post and check back soon for more! :)
