Textures are trending right now in the colorful world of manicures and glamorously gorgeous nails, and we’ve tested a few eye-catching polishes to give you a fresh look at a few products we love!  Velvety nails, shimmering beads, layered finishes, and other stunning polishes are showcased in this lineup of new looks for your fashion season!

Product: Velvet Provocateur

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

Ease of Use: 5 Stars

Durability: 4 Stars

Our Take On It: We were thoroughly impressed by this luxurious velvet polish!  The texture is mesmerizing, easy to apply, and even stands up to handwashing without shedding the fluff (though it takes about 10 minutes to fluff back up again after it gets soaked).  The one slightly inconvenient aspect is that we couldn’t seem to help getting powder flecks everywhere, no matter how careful we were.  It’s like glitter – you’ll be finding it a week later somewhere across the room!  This nail texture is dramatic, stylish, and as velvety smooth as it looks.  We give it an overall 4 out of 5 stars.

Product: Nail Pearls

Overall Rating: 2 Stars

Ease of Use: 5 Stars

Durability: 1 Star

Our Take On It: We were more excited about these nail pearls than any of the other products because they are so unique and delightful, but they didn’t hold up to the test of time.  They were easy to apply, and truly glamorous, but the beads started popping off after just an hour.  If you pull a standard topcoat from your polish collection and apply it over the beads, it does increase the longevity by about a day, but the bubbly texture of the beads is somewhat diminished when the curves and creases are filled in with the topcoat.  On the plus side, the copious bottle of beads will last you for months and months of re-application!  If you’re going for a dramatic, one-evening look that you can apply in just minutes, this is a viable polish, but if you want something that will last for a few weeks, we give it simply a 2 out of 5 overall stars.

Product: Zeva Natural Nails

Overall Rating: 3 Stars

Ease of Use: 5 Stars

Durability: 4 Stars

Our Take On It: Zeva is designed to give you an instant French manicure, making the pinks and whites of your nails more vibrant and dramatic.  We found that you can see a difference, but not much, and you’re bombarded with pretty strong fumes that linger in the room when you twist open the cap.

Zeva provides a lovely gloss, and does make the whites of the nail a bit more crisp, however it’s not much of a difference, so we’ve given it a 3 out of 5 stars.  If you’re headed out the door and need a quick manicure solution to make your nails look clean and up-kept, this is a solid product, but it’s not the dramatic French manicure that we were hoping for.

Product: Seche Vite Top Coat

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Ease of Use: 5 Stars

Durability: 5 Stars

Our Take On It: This delightfully quick topcoat will stick with you through your night on the town, washing dishes in the sink, and anything else your busy life throws at you.  It provides a shiny gloss, a durable finish, and an easy way to keep your nails looking lovely.  5 out of 5 stars for this top coat that could easily become a staple in your polish collection.

Product: 3D Shimmer (Base: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Gold…Middle: Wet n Wild Fergie…Top: Sally Hansen  Triple Shine)

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

Ease of Use: 4 Stars

Durability: 5 Stars

Our Take On It: You can create a dramatic 3-Dimensional universe of sparkles and glitter with this triple-layering technique.  These three polishes together create mesmerizing layers of glimmer that will make your nails stand out in the crowd.  You start with the solid gold base coat, which had an impressively fast drying time.  Next, it’s on to the gold glitter layer – we found that you needed about three layers to get an adequate amount of sparkle, but not bad.  Finally, you top it all off with the opalescent confetti layer for that multi-color shimmer.  The key is to layer 3-4 layers of the middle golden glitter layer, and 2-3 layers of the opal confetti top layer.  The results are gorgeous!  With lots of depth and light-catching color, these nails get a 4 out of 5 stars.

Product: Nail Savvy Speed Demon

Overall Rating: 2 Stars

Ease of Use: 2 Stars

Durability:

Our Take On It: Eh.  That about sums our impression of this quick dry product.  If you brush it straight onto a wet polish, it will smear it badly.  And if you wait for the polish to firm up before applying the quick-dry solution, as we did to test it after different time periods, we found that you may as well wait until your nails just dry naturally, because it doesn’t speed up the completion time by any noticeable margin.  For the tiny bit of speed to that it gives to the drying time of your nails, we give this rather unimpressive product a 2 out of 5 stars.

Product: Maybelline Color Show Street Art

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Ease of Use: 5 Stars

Durability: 5 Stars


Our Take On It: Full marks for this swanky nail polish that provides a rugged, graffiti look on your nails.  It’s sassy, it’s fun, it’s designed with a generous amount of particles in each stroke so that even one layer is impressive, and we love it!  A perfect 5 out of 5 stars for this trendy Street Art style.
