Texture Week continues with another textured nail art look! This time it's using a couple of the OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand polishes. It's a simple look, but I think it definitely makes a statement.
I started with a base of OPI Honey Ryder and then using a striping brush, I added a fairly thick stripe down the middle of each nail using OPI Vesper. Vesper isn't completely opaque in one coat so I did have to go back and fill in the stripes a second time. I let both of those dry down for a few minutes and then I used a small dollop of Seche Vite to adhere a single square gold stud to each of my nails.
Of course, I wanted the full texture effect so I skipped top coat with this mani, which sadly compromised the integrity of the studs. Without top coat to seal them in, a few of them popped off throughout the day. If I were to do this or a similar mani again, I'd probably opt to use nail glue instead of top coat to anchor the studs down. Hopefully that would keep them down longer.
If you'd like to see full swatches of all the shades from the OPI Bond Girls Collection, you can check out my posts here and here.
