I’ve been dabbling in textured polishes lately, and while I’m not sure I prefer them over a smooth, shiny finish, they definitely add some variety to my manicures. If you’re looking for some textured polishes to try on a dime, perhaps you’d enjoy the Full Throttle collection from SinfulColors for Summer 2014. These have a “rubberized” texture that looks like subtle, small dimples on the surface.
Burn Rubber is a safety-cone orange. It reminds me very much of an actual orange (like, the fruit) because of the bumpy texture.
Race Rubber is a deep, bold burgundy shade. This one was a bit tricky, because the shade deepens with each layer, so you have to be pretty precise each time to get an even application.
Rubber Ball is a vibrant, mid-toned pink. This shade applied with full coverage in just one layer.
I’m not sure if this texture is what I think about when I imagine “rubberized.” I think it resembles concrete more, no? Either way, the shades are vibrant and still maintain a shiny finish. I found it much more suitable to apply in thin layers, otherwise the polish has a hard time settling into the texture and drying down.
Find these shades and the rest of the SinfulColors Full Throttle collection at Rite Aid for $1.99 each throughout July.
