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?
