Are you a fan of the textured polishes? I sure am! I love them! I think they are so much fun, I love the colors that have been coming out, I love the sparkle and the feel of them. I've tried OPI Sands, Zoya Pixie Dust and now I have Kiko Sugar Mats! I even did a little diagonal design for you to see more than just one color! A big thanks to my Friend Michaela at The Mani Cafe for sending these to me!
I started this mani with 2 coats of Hot Pink (which is truly a gorgeous hot pink shade) on my thumb and index and 2 coats of Sea Blue (a lighter shade of royal blue, but bright for Spring and Summer) on my pinky. I then hand drew diagonals on my middle and ring finger with Golden Mandarin (a fun peachy orange color), Spring Green (bright green, perfect Spring color) and Sea Blue. I loved all of these colors and don't think I could pick a favorite if I had to. Application for the Sugar Mats was great, easy to apply and full coverage in the 2 coats. The coolest thing is watching the polish dry into the textured final product. I have no idea how it works but it's awesome! Speaking of drying, the dry time was quicker than I expected and the polish lasted for a few days before I noticed any tip wear. I would say that the Kikos are in a tie for first place with the OPI Sands for my favorite textured formulas. But the Kikos win for color saturation and selection! Enjoy the pictures below!
