It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does texture! Yesterday, I shared a textured dotticure that had my nails looking almost fuzzy. Today, I’ve kept things simpler with a blue manicure accented by a textured stripe on each nail.
To get this look, I started with a base of Zoya Song. On each nail, I carefully applied two pieces of striping tape, and then painted between them using Essie Lots of Lux before removing the tape again. The two blues were a perfect match!
Lots of Lux is one of my absolute favourite textured polishes and I wish Essie would have done more like this. I don’t think any of their other textures are in the same league as this one!
I’m glad I chose a shimmery polish like Song for my base shade, because I think that also had a cool effect next to the sparkling texture.
This one is simple, elegant, and very wearable! I can see this in practically any matching colour set, and it’d work well with some contrasting colours, too. Maybe a nude base with a coloured stripe? What do you think?
