Manicure: Blue textured leopard print nail art with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat nail polish

Manicure: Blue textured leopard print nail art with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat nail polish
I finally bit the textured nail polish bait. Truth be told, I wasn't impressed by the Barry M textured nail polishes one bit. After trying my fair share of the polishes that separated into gritty and watery parts, I was prepared to dislike all textured polishes for life until I came across the Sugar Coat nail polishes in the Sally Hansen counter. An O.P.I. snob for most part, I love Sally Hansen's base coats, but had not really tried their nail polishes.
The moment I swatched the Sugar Coat nail polishes, I changed my mind, picking up a few of the shades. These are even, like concrete but not gritty and give you great opacity with a thin coat and do not separate into grit and liquid. And the texture shows up (feels up?) only once the polish dries, so you can apply it just like a normal nail polish.

Here is a blue textured leopard print nail art with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat nail polishes and more on the Sugar Coats.

I love blue nail polish and this is a super-bright blue. However, bright blue polishes can stain the nails and this is no exception, so make sure you apply a stain-proof base coat before this one. All photographs in natural light.
I wanted to go in for textured polishes throughout, so I applied rough patches with Barry M Textured Nail Paint in Atlantic Road. This is a light blue textured polish which I find makes a better layering polish than a base, unless I slather on three coats.

Finally, I outlined the light patches with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Lick-O-Rich which is a rich black textured polish that I cannot stop raving about. I also applied this on the tips.
I did not 't apply a topcoat, as this would ruin the texture. Have a look at that concrete finish! It won't ruin your skin -  this is not as rough as it looks and I have not noticed any chipping or tipwear.
