Ugh Monday again... luckily today I have an extra gorgeous polish for you girls!
This is 2 coats of Lots of Lux. I am sooo in love with this texture polish! It's a gorgeous sapphire blue with tons of microglitter... mostly gold, some green and blue, and a bit of pinky-purple! It's so stunning!
I felt like this polish had more texture to it than the other 2 textures I own (Nicole by OPI - That's What I Mint and OPI - Honey Ryder) but then again I haven't worn those in a while so could just be my memory. You can see the texture quite well in the picture below.

sorry my fingers look so oily here! Guess the lighting that brings out the sparkle also shows the oil a lot more!
This stamping idea looked better in my head. I used Pueen 13 and Sally Hansen Whirlwind White. The stamping covered more than I wanted it to and I feel like you can't see the beauty of Lots of Lux anymore. I think this would've looked better if there were more space between the lines of the swirls. I also had trouble stamping over Lots of Lux because of the texture. I had to press down quite hard to get the stamping onto the texture polish. Once on, the stamping also rubbed off easily (especially since I didn't use top coat to keep the texture). You can see at the top left of my index and middle nails that the stamping didn't stick. I should've just left it plain but oh well.
This texture wore a bit better than my other two texture polishes (Nicole by OPI - That's What I Mint and OPI - Honey Ryder) but nothing amazing. I don't get how these textures last for a week on other girls... definitely not my experience! I've heard that sandwiching top coat in between is supposed to help but haven't tried it yet.
Any other tips on how to make texture polishes last longer? Any tips on how to stamp over texture polishes without the stamping rubbing off?
Don't forget to check out the other Monday Blues!
