Hi everyone! I'm a bit late with this week's Twinsie Tuesday post but... It's still Tuesday at least! :) Today's theme is "Holiday Special"
I had to shorten my nails a bit :( my nails tend to break when it's cold out. I broke my middle finger nail... I managed to patch it with a tea bag and super glue but it ended up a bit lumpy so I'll have to cover it with texture polishes or chunky glitter until the patch grows out. I also feel like textures add a bit of strength to nails... My nails don't bend as easily as they do with just creme polish!
I started with two coats of Nicole by OPI My Cherry Amour a berry magenta texture with a bit of holo sparkle. Not a classic Christmas red but I think it still works!
Then I stamped with Born Pretty Store BP-82. Use my code SL10k31 for 10% off! I had a bit of trouble picking up the thinner lines (around the stocking and ornament) and it took me a few tries (used my old red rubber Konad stamper). I haven't tried with any other polishes though to be fair and thinner lines tend to be a bit harder.
I ended up adding top coat to this... As much as I like the look of texture polish I find the tips wear off in a couple days and also it tends to look a bit dusty/dirty after a while. I knew I probably wouldn't have time to redo my nails this week so I had to!
What do you think of this mani? Do you like it more with or without top coat? Do you ever wear textures with top coat?
