I was doing the Challenge Your Nail Art monthly challenge last week, and ignored my Crumpet Nail Tarts challenges! 30 lashes with a wet noodle for me!
But, I'm back, with a funky mani inspired by Finger Food's technicolor abstract nail art.
I started with Nails Inc Green Park, a dusty greyed-green. It's not as far as Army green, but it's not a clear garden green. These greyed-out colors are some of my very favorite polishes. So sophisticated!
For the purple and red, I go crazy for the textures! I love the ones with some sparkle to them, and Sinful Colors Purple Gleam has a nice, soft shimmer.
Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer Cinny Sweet brings even more sparkle, and it's thick enough to draw dots and lines and be opaque. This is so fun.. but I knew I couldn't leave it all bumpy. I'd be too distracted by all the different levels of polish.
It's not as unique all topcoated, but it's still pretty. And, there's still some sparkle!

I really like the versatility of textures, though I know not everyone likes them. With a bit of topcoat, they look like sparkly glitters or shimmer polishes, so I know I'll use them for years to come, even when the trend is done.
