Hello all you Tips and Topcoat fans!
Thanks Lou for having us guest bloggers on this week! So much fun and a fantastic way to bring nail artist together!
I'm Kristin Day from Rainysunraynails Its so amazing to be part of this community. I love all things nail art. And I am a huge fan of Tips and Topcoat.

Today I had some fun with textured polish. Sponging and stamping. Both simple techniques with beautiful outcomes.
Lets start with the sponging manicure.
I started with one coat of Julie G's nail color in Crushed Candy. Then sponged on both the Crushed Candy and Blueberry Fizz. I did two coats of sponging to get the full color of the Blueberry Fizz.
I then cleaned up the edges with acetone and art brush. This took a little longer then usual because of the texture in the polish.

Now to the stamped textured manicure.
My base for this is Orly FX in Black Pixel in two coats.
I then stamped the accent nail with the new 2013 Cheeky Jumbo Plate in European Romance with Sinful Colors in Casablanca

Thanks for having me!
