NOTD // Jade And Textured Gold

Hello lovelies, hope your all having a lovely day. It's been awhile since I've done a nails of the day post but I've had plain nails on colours I've already swatched so it was pointless in me posting, however the other day i had a thought and gave it a try. I wanted a textured nail but not in the colours that i already own, so i wondered if i could apply a colour on top of a textured polish to create what i wanted and this is how it turned out...

 Excuse the horrible cuticles i need to do some serious nail loving haha. There is slight ware in the polish as i did do these the other day and prior to taking photos i was doing typical mummy housework  stuff, but aside from that it turned out exactly how i wanted. 

On all the fingers apart from my ring finger i used Topshop nails in gone fishing (£5), which is a colour I'm very much in love with as it's a beautiful jade green and i really like the formula as it dries quick and  lasts on my nails well. To create the textured gold nail i first applied two coats of Barry M texture nail paint (£3.99) in shade Ridley road so the gold had that bumby base i wanted. I then used a very thin coat of Barry M foil effects (£3.99) in gold and once dry it still left the textured effect. I'm super happy knowing i can use this little trick to get a textured effect now in whatever colour i please, my mind is filling with different combinations already haha.

Do you like textured nails, does this little cheat excite you too?
