Textured swirls

Hi lovelies! It's been a while, hasn't it? Since our project week and the finishing of our diploma project (which I wrote about in my last post) I have worked with the very last assignments and presentations of upper secondary school, and I am now finished! It is still more than a week to graduation though, but that time I will spend with my beloved friends that I will soon part ways with...

But we are not here to be sad! Todays manicure is a fun one and I really love these shades together. I did a similar thing about two months ago - patterns with textured polishes over "ordinary" polishes. I think that the effect is so cool and really nice to look at, haha.

The pretty, light blue base is 34 from Glam of Sweden, three thin coats for full coverage. Then I used a small nail art brush and acrylic paint, to outline the swirls. I chose to do them in white before adding the textured polishe because I think that acrylic paint is much easier to maneuver than a textured polishes, that often is pretty thick and chunky. Starting with the pattern in white I had a great template to fill in and also had a chance to do any corrections and make the lines reallt smooth when I went over them again. So, the textured polish is Pool Crush from Isadora - one of my favourite textured polishes. Lovely colour with super gorgeous shimmer and nice consistency. No top coat to keep the textured effect.
