Technicolor-Texture-TRI-Polish Abstract

Hello, Fireflies!

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.
