I had a very long, very beauty nerd-seque conversation with a friend a while back about nail polishes with unconventional textures, ala bumps and grit.
I was wearing Zoya’s $9 Pixie Dust in Godiva on my tips at the time, walking around with nails that looked like they’d been dipped in sugar.
New for spring, Godiva’s brimming with fine bits of gritty glitter.
My buddy said the feel of the finish gave her the heebie-jeebies — like clawing a chalkboard or sandpaper — and I can see where she’s coming from. I mean, why purposefully put something lumpy and bumpy on a smooth set of nails?
But then there’s also the question, “Why not?”
I know it’s not for everyone, but grit can be a good thing, right? Sometimes?
What do you think? Do you like textured nail polishes? Grains, grit, bumps, stickers, raised swirls? Or do they give you the heebie-jeebies?
