31DC2014 Inspired by a Color: Finger Paints – Sailor’s Lure

31dc2014color

I’m not too happy with this one. I bought Finger Paints Sailor’s Lure and Underwater Enchantress (green) some time ago, and hadn’t really used them until now. I love the colors, especially the blue which turns kind of purple in the light, but I wasn’t expecting the texture. I had a design in mind, so I was a bit disappointed when I had to alter it because it wouldn’t work over the textured surface. Still, as texture polishes go, I think they’re pretty good.

I used Underwater Enchantress under the fish scales, though you can’t really tell, plus some gold holographic foil on the edges. I wanted to give it more of an underwater feel.

EDIT: I recommend applying top coat over these polishes for longer wear. I applied top coat on my right hand, but not on my left, and my left-hand nails have considerable chipping and wear (second day), while my right-hand nails have no chipping. I should also note that I can still feel the texture, even with the top coat.
