Since it seems I’m in the business of hoarding the new textured polishes that have come out recently I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to use them. I already did textured polka dots using China Glaze Bump & Grind but I really wanted to try doing a gradient. I wasn’t sure how it would work but as it turns out I really liked the result.
I did 2 gradients; one using a white base (Ulta Snow White) and just sponging China Glaze Of Coarse! on top. The end result looked great but didn’t have near as much of a gradient look as I was going for.
The second gradient I did I used Revlon Blue Lagoon with OPI Just Groovy sponged over the top. I then added a matte top coat (I used butter LONDON Matte Finish Topcoat). After I let that dry completely I sponged a small amount of China Glaze Of Coarse! on the tips. While this version definitely had more of a gradient look I still liked my first attempt better.
Anyway, below the jump there are swatches of both versions. Let me know which you like better!
