In the jean pool...5:00 AM
It's day four of the texture challenge with The Digital Dozen! I rarely ever do anything textured on my nails-- outside of some sandy polish that is-- so I'm really loving how this week has pushed me to try new things. When I first decided to do these denim nails I wasn't super sure how I was going to go about it. I have this Barry M polish called "Denim" and thought it was very fitting, but even though it's gorgeous and matte and very "denim-y" as promised...it's not exactly textured. I found a super cool tutorial over at Meisie's Nails but it requires various colors and fabric and blah blah blah. SO....I sort of went in a similar but different direction. I used the Barry M for my base and then I dotted some diluted white on with some cling wrap. THEN I waited til it was sort of tacky but definitely mostly dry and pressed it into the underside of a pair of jeans. The gold was sort of an afterthought. I didn't love it after it was on but no way was I starting over!! I do think it helped finish off the jean effect though. All in all it came out as a win for me! And it was SUPER easy. :) Don't forget to check out the other girls mani's below!
