Half moon textured gradient feat. Pretty Serious

Last month I tried my first gradient using textured polishes, and I really loved it.  Textured polish just seems to work so perfectly for gradients.  

This half moon textured gradient was created by starting with a base of Pretty Serious Menace from Mars, which is a rich and pigmented, glowy red textured polish.  It reminds me of Pretty Serious Santa's Sunburn, one of my favourte reds, but a textured version of it.  

I then used nail vinyls to mask off the half moons and did a gradient using Pretty Serious Dimension X and a little bit if OPI Jinx on the tips.  

I absolutely loved the look of this, but I still have to say that I'm not a huge fan of the feel of textured polishes on my nails. I really don't like the rough feel, but I love the rough look.


  1. I love this look! I have not yet tried the textured nail polish I have, but this makes me want to go do so! :) I like the idea of a half-moon gradient. Must try!

  2. I'm not usually a half moon-fan, but this is really cool!

  3. This is really cool, it's rare to see a red gradient and I really like it!

  4. Dimension X sure is a stunner, isn't it? <3

  5. I love how these came out!
