Half & Half Textured Manicure

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well. 

Today I have quite a simple design to show you which was inspired by this look by Stephanie of A Little Polish. I just loved the mixture of different finishes and the colour scheme so recreated  it on myself. I apologise that these photos are so dark, my boyfriend had been messing with settings on my camera and I couldn't figure out what he had done! He fixed it in the end though so these are the only dodgy photos.

I started with a base of Sally Hansen - Cinnasnap and added a topcoat at this point. I tested out a Color Club topcoat for this, instead of my usual Seche Vite. I have to say I was impressed.

Once this was dry I used a striping brush to draw a line across my nail with Barry M - Countess. I then filled one half of the nail in using the brush from the bottle.

I don't love my version as much as the one I was inspired by, but its still pretty. I think I needed a lighter textured polish than Countess, but that was the best I could do in my stash.

Are you still loving the textured trend?

Thanks for looking.
