NOPI ~ On What Grounds?

Hello Everyone!

Today on the way home I stopped by Shoppers and found these interesting Limited Edition NOPI "Roughles" polishes. There were 4 spring textured colours. I decided to grab the teal: 

"NOPI ~ On What Grounds?"

I would have grabbed all 4 (yellow, pink, purple, teal) but they were $10.99 a pop =(

On What Grounds is a teal texture "Roughles"?? polish with darker teal and grey specks. It looks both bright and pastel depending on the lighting. 

The instructions tell you not to use a top coat. This is to allow the textured effect to show!

The finish starts of pretty rough, but as it wears it gets smoother. I would recommend not wearing delicate snagable fabrics while wearing these polishes.

So what do you think of it? I'm on the fence. I love the colour and I think it's definitely better than plain creme textured polishes, but I'm not sure if I'm sold. I asked my mom what she thought of it and she said it looks like concrete =( I think it somewhat resembles candy speckled eggs! 

I wore 2 coats of "On What Grounds" without a base coat and a week later it still looks perfect! It's just a bit sanded down and smoother now, but there were no chips and only slight tip wear which is expected.

I think I'd like to try a few of the other colours from this collection, if only they were cheaper! Well hopefully they go on sale lol...

Do you like this polish??

Can anyone tell me what "Roughles" means???
I get that it's a play on words of "rough" but "ruffles" still doesn't make sense to me for this polish... lol oh well

edit** I found a full display the other day so I snapped a pic. Here you can see the other colours =)

This is what I wore for new years. 

I just stumbled upon this picture and realized that I had forgotten to share it with you.

Nabi 3D ~ Navy Blue

Nabi Holograms might not be new or recent, but they are still gorgeous!! A cheap alternative to pricey holographic nail polishes, I got a bunch of Nabis last summer for around $2 a pop! Here is:

Nabi 3D-Rainbow Effect in Navy Blue

I find this colour in particular is more of a scattered holographic. The linear qualities don't show up as well in the dark colour. 
I love how bold the colour is though! A contrast to the bright colours of summer. I can't wait until summer...

Anyone else looking forward to summer???
