Rough and Spotted - Stamping Over Textured Polish

Textured spotted stamping by @chalkboardnails

I don't think it's possible for me to wear textured polish anymore without eventually stamping over it. As I've said before, textured stamping is just so great! It tends to disguise imperfections in the stamping, that may or may not be a direct result of my *ahem* lack of stamping skills. Plus, it looks really interesting to boot!

Last time I wore a stamped textured look, you guys really seemed to like it! This one isn't quite as subtle or glamorous, but has a strange appeal all its own.

Nail polishes and products used:
Nicole by OPI I'm Stucco On You
American Apparel Hassid
Vivid Lacquer plate VL009 - Water spotted image

I'm wearing two coats of the textured polish in these photos, and added the stamping after about a day of wear. The nice thing about the spotted image on the Vivid Lacquer plate is that it's SUPER wide, which allows you to randomize the pattern across your nails (no two nails will look alike)!

I did have a bit of trouble with the large open spaces in the plate though. When I scraped the excess polish off, my scraper tended to clean out more of the image than I'd have liked. I'm not sure if that's due to the plate or my own inexperience.

As the texture begins to degrade and smooth out from natural wear, the stamping will be affected too. But, I got a few solid days of wear on top of my one day of wearing the texture naked!

    These look so good, the 2 go together perfectly and the flecks of red and blue in that purple is so nice!! :)

  2. Which color silicon (?) stamping head did you use to catch all the textured sections of the design space? Is an especially soft head more likely to get into the crevices of the textured surface?

  3. I used a stamper from MoYou US, it's soft but not especially sticky or squishy. I think almost any stamper would work, just give it a try! :)

  5. I love the bits of glitter peeking through.
    Also try scraping at a 45 degree angle or less and scraping slower. That usually works for me.

  7. How gorgeous is that base polish? I absolutely love this mani!
    I thought these were actually water spotted! I love stamping over textured polish, it just gives it a whole new look. I added top coat over mine so the stamping wouldn't rub off, of course the texture wasn't as present anymore, but you can't have it all.

  13. Hi Sarah, I've noticed how your style has been evolving these past few months -- you're staying fresh, edgy, new, yet still clean and not malignantly over-the-top with your art. Thank you for all the inspiration you've given me!!

  15. Wow, the nails look great! I have never tried a texture nail polish before. How is it to take off? Is it like removing a glitter nail polish?

    Say, anytime you want to link up your nail art posts, just like this one, I would love to have you over at the Beauty Frenzy Friday link party! (every linked up post gets pinned and has the chance to be featured the following week!)

  16. Most textures, unless they contain a ton of glitter pieces, are actually quite easy to remove!
