It’s going to come as no surprise that I am and have been a huge fan of textured nail polishes since the beginning of the trend… I am over the moon that these are still going strong! This spring, Nicole by OPI releases a brand new, 4-piece, collection called the Roughles. According to the press release…
Roughles go on like regular polish, but dry to a speckled, textured finish. We recommend you skip the top coat to keep your mani in its original matte state, but if gloss is the name of your game, feel free lay down a clear coat!
The Roughles collection has four pastel colours that, to me, are the most unique of all the textured polishes that have been released to date. Each is speckle with similar colours of speckled glitter and dries to a matte finish.
I’m Stucco On You is a purple base with red and blue speckles. I applied two easy coats for full opaque coverage and the dry time was fairly decent; dry to the touch in just a few minutes and completely dry in about 15-20 minutes.
Sand In My Shoe is a yellow base with reddish orange speckles. Again, two coats for a full opaque coverage and similar dry time. I love the contrast of the two colours against each other and think this one is the most unique of the four.
Rock the Look is a pink base with red and purple speckles. Two coats for a fully opaque coverage and the dry time was really similar to the other polishes. The speckles in this one are the least obvious as the colours are similar to one another but it’s still a unique colour in my collection so definitely a must-have.
On What Grounds? is a teal base with bright blue and black speckles. Two coats for full opacity and dry time was great. I LOVE this one and think it looks just like ice cream.
Overall, I LOVE this collection and really wouldn’t be able to pick a favourite. I think that all of these colours are unique when it comes to textured polish and while I am not normally a fan of the matte textures, the speckles in these make them really stand out on the nail. These are PERFECT for spring and Easter!
Roughles are available at most major retailers and cost $10.99 a bottle.
