Nicole by OPI Spring 2014 Roughles Textured Nail Lacquer Swatches, Review


 
So just like the rest of the mainstream nail polish brands, Nicole by OPI has branched out and joined the textured nail polish bandwagon, and has come up with four new spring shades.  I actually find these shades really cute, they look just like the color of easter eggs!

Here are the four textured nail polish spring colors from Nicole by OPI.  The textured polish line is called Roughles which in my opinion is quite cute.

Nicole by OPI I'm Stucco on You is a lavender textured polish with little bits of orange and blue grains.  They don't look like glitter to me but more of bumpy-looking grains which create the textured effect.  I like lavenders for spring, so I am liking this shade.

Nicole by OPI On What Grounds? is a really pretty mint green textured polish infused with grains of blue.  Since green is another favorite color of mine, this is definitely right up my alley.



Nicole by OPI Rock the Look



Nicole by OPI Rock the Look is a peachy colored textured polish with apricot-colored beads infused within.  Not my favorite Roughle, but still pretty nonetheless.

Nicole by OPI Sand in My Shoe is a nice buttercup yellow textured polish with orange grains.  Love how this looks - very summery indeed.

The formula is a little bit too thick for my liking, but it can be improved just by adding a few drops of thinner.  The brush also splays a little bit which doesn't go well with the thick formula, but as I mentioned, a few drops of thinner helps a lot.

All in all, my definite faves are, well, actually all except Rock the Look.  The texture looks fascinatingly like wet cement on the nails, which is similar to the texture of China Glaze's Textured line of textured polishes.

What do you think of textured polishes?  Yay or Nay?  I can say this is one of my favorite trends in recent years, I like the combination of grit and texture, and sometimes glitter.
