Happy days for me, as I recently won a prize in PiggieLuv's Birthday Bash giveaway, consisting of four bottles of Beauty UK Grit FX polishes, courtesy of Sassy Little Nails. Having tested a couple of other Beauty UK polishes and being a fan of the texture, I was super excited to try these out! I wore the polishes plain for probably 2 days before I finally decided to do some stamping and take pics, so please forgive the grow-out around my cuticles.
As I said, I wore the plain polishes for a couple of days before doing the stamping, which consisted of two coats of Beauty UK Printworks on my middle and ring fingers, and three coats of Kensington on my thumb, index, and pink. I found that whereas Printworks has better opacity, Kensington definitely has a prettier textured effect.
When it came time to take these off, I decided I wanted to at least snap a few pics for the blog, so I pulled out my MoYou Nails stamping polish in light blue, and Cici & Sisi plate 07 to add the stamped image over top. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be, but it was pretty so...
I am genuinely pleased with these new polishes. There are two others that I will have to show you soon, because they're just as lovely. As a bonus, removal on these polishes was actually really simple using my normal method - very minimal scrubbing was required. I did use two coats of base coat before applying, however, as an extra later of protection against potential staining. I'm happy to report that I experienced no staining using this method, but cannot guarantee that the teal wouldn't stain without base coat.
I am still a huge fan of textured polishes, even if the trend is fading. These polishes definitely have a special place in my stash. Thank you so much to Narmai and Dawn for the giveaway!
