Currently Coveting: Textured Nail Polish

By Klaudia Tirico / April 15, 2013

First there was glitter, then crackle and matte. Now, the latest in nail polish formulas are polishes with a rough texture. This cool formula mimics sandpaper on the nail for a new way to jazz up your tips without having to go the nail art route. Plus, a one of a kind "feather" texture looks like a bird's coat for a truly unique look. We're all for textured nail polishes this season, check out our current faves below!

Zoya PixieDust
Zoya's PixieDust collection feels like you just dipped your nails in loose glitter. The sparkly-dust formula dries matte for a sweet, sugary finish that's truly enchanting.
Available in Godiva (pictured), Dahlia (black), Chyna (red), Vespa (mint green), Nyx (periwinkle), and London (gray).

China Glaze Texture Collection
China Glaze's Texture collection leaves a gritty finish on the nail that can be worn matte or with a glossy top coat. We love the bright pops of color - ideal for the summer.
Available in In The Rough (light lime green), Itty, Bitty & Gritty (melon), Of Coarse! (bright cobalt, pictured), Unrefined (bright pink), Bump & Grind (hot pink-red, pictured), and Toe-tally Textured (tangerine).

Nails Inc. Feathers Effect Nail Polish
We haven't seen anything like the Nails Inc. Feathers collection. The interesting formula features feather-like particles (that sort of look like sprinkles) in contrasting colors that leave your nail looking like a bird's quill. Cool, right?
Available in York (pastel peach and white, pictured), Edinburgh (pastel orange and blue, pictured), Cornwall (blue and white), and Brighton (teal and yellow).

OPI Liquid Sand in Magazine Cover Mouse
OPI's Liquid Sand may have been the textured polish that started it all, but their constant new colors still get us excited. Case in point: this new shade from the Couture de Minnie collection (out June). The bright, cherry red will look so chic with an all black ensemble and red pout, no?
