Happy November! This is the first of a few guest posts that Polished PR will be hosting this month in celebration of the beautiful fall weather we’ve been experiencing over here in Florida, it’s about time! Kitsu from buy ALL the colors! is one of my favorite bloggers/followers– her comments on my posts always leave a smile on my face, and her posts are so entertaining :) I’ll let her take it from here:
Hey guys! If you don’t know me, I’m Kitsu from buy ALL the colors! and I’m so excited to be guest posting here today! When Jenn asked for fall themed posts, all I could think of was my favorite thing about fall– sweaters! While it may have just started to get cool down south, it’s been chilly where I live for weeks already, and there’s just something cozy about snuggling into a warm sweater to get ready to face the cold outdoors.
I started with two coats of Urban Outfitters Dunks for a white base. Then I added zigzags with my favorite off-white polish, Urban Outfitters Virgin, to get that knitted texture.
And then I tried to recreate that yarn feeling by drawing on some different cable knit patterns with a white textured polish– I used Sally Hansen Sugar Fix. It did take two layers to get the amount of texture that I wanted, and the cable pattern on my middle finger blobbed together a bit on the second coat. And of course, I wasn’t thinking about how difficult it would be to photograph a white texture on a white background when I started this design. It does show up better in real life!
Here’s a better photo to see the texture. Just be careful to not wear a textured polish that’s too snaggy with your sweaters! Despite the bit of blobbage, I’m really happy with how these turned out, and I’d love to know what you all think of this. And thanks so much to Jenn for hosting this mani!
Thank you so much for this post, Kitsu! The moment I saw the final look, it reminded me so much of the 100+ pull-over sweaters I have hidden away in my closet that I’m almost never able to utilize all of because of the warm weather here. So cool-looking, and super creative!
