Wearing: Uslu Airlines white polish, Backstage talon cuff.

Sometimes I find nail polish to be a bit too perfect and glossy looking. I love the look of a white decaying textured wall, so I thought I would try and translate it into my nails, just for fun. This was actually something we did for the SS13 show, painting the nails and then sponging it off for a more lived in, rough and ready feel. The trick is to wait until it’s almost set, then use a sponge to heavily dab into the varnish.

    So chic! I want to try this with my black polish! I’ll probably just end up in a mess though.

      Yeah, at first I used any old sponge and ended up with specs of dirt embedded in the white. Not chic. You could use anything to give it a rub though.

    I have nails like this all the time, since I’m not able to wait until it’s dry to get dressed or touch something…and I always unwillingly end up with messed up, textured nails! x

      Haha, my toenails always end up this way. Too impatient to wait to put my tights on!

    VERY brill idea! Textured nails are so hot now. I’ve just uploaded a new post with my new take on a “little black skirt” provoked by Kanye West’s recent Givenchy kilt story, tell me what you think ;)
