Digit-al Dozen Does Texture; Day 5

The last of the texture mani's for Digit-al Dozen challenge week!  I was so happy the new MoYou plates arrived just in time to use for today's mani; here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of American Apparel Downtown LA on all fingers except accent which is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, no topcoat.

Added two coats of OPI Matte on all except accent.

Stamped using FUN black stamping polish using MoYou Hipster Collection-06 on all fingers except thumb which is MoYou Hipster-05.

 Added stamping to accent using which is MoYou Hipster-01.

Decided to matte the stamping; there was some minor streaking, but nothing too visible to the naked eye.

Added a little flocking powder to the beard.

I did my test hand a little different; added a coat of Dance Legend Top Sahara for what I thought would be a textured look but all I seen was some silver sparkle, no texture!  Don't know if this is the norm or what but I was expecting some texture lol.  Anyway, used same plates just different images and matted the stamping as well.

Here's the other Day 5 mani's!  That's it for Digit-al Dozen texture challenge....there have been so many outstanding mani's this week!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I love the addition of the flocking powder, it makes the whole design more comedic to me, not sure if this is what you were going for.
    Also, I love the new patterns on that stamping plate!

    1. lol; I wasn't going for comical but good to know you got a laugh out of this! The mani was intended to show two texture elements for the DD challenge; plaid being a fabric texture and then the flocking powder on the beard for texture!

  2. I love that beard - in a whole don't try and kiss me with that face kind of way! lol

  3. Adorable lumberjack manicure! I love the textured flocked beard. How cute.

  4. awn!!! I love your mani, super creative!!
