Textured Nail Art Series - Third Installment ♥

Press Sample

Happy Hump Day!  I have another installment of my textured nail art series using Kiko Sugar Mats tonight!

 In case you missed my previous posts in this series (which I will link at the bottom), Kiko Sugar Mats are coming soon to Ninja Polish! Sheila from Pointless Cafe swatched all of them for you and I will be doing nail art to coordinate with each swatch post that she did (possibly more than one nail art post, depending on the colors in the swatch post). Today I am using 3 polishes from Part 2 of her 4 part series, which you can find here, #635, #636 and #637. The Sugar Mat Collection is made up of 16 polishes - 8 non-shimmers and 8 shimmers. All of these are the non-shimmers. All three had great formulas and were very easy to work with.

Post continued after the jump!

For some reason these colors screamed argyle to me, even though they aren't they "typical" argyle colors. I used a striping brush for the design and overall I'm happy with the look. It's VERY hard (at least for me) to create straight lines over a textured polish so my lines aren't as clean as I would like but for my first attempt I think it's  a success! 

I'm really enjoying this series and can't wait to do more textured nail art!

The Sugar Mat Collection is nearly completely sold out on Kiko's website (and they don't ship to the US) but Ninja Polish will be launching the complete collection very soon! You can click here to be taken to the "coming soon" section on Ninja Polish so you can sign up to be notified via email when they are available! And the $7.50 price tag is cheaper than most of the textured polishes you can find elsewhere! 

Make sure to follow Ninja Polish on the social media links below!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing! ♥



  1. Beautiful!! :D I love argyle! :D

  2. This is PERFECT! The fact that the lines aren't perfect makes it look even more like an argyle sweater!!! Brilliant.
