I love textured polishes, and I now own 21 of them. I took them all out of their (crowded) shelf, and picked out a rainbow to use to make a feather on my nails! Although I’m not 100% happy with this (I couldn’t figure out how to taper the ends of each feather part) I do think it looks pretty cool.
This was pretty straight forward. White base, top coat, and then go. I started with red, which is why the blues and purples got kinda squished off the end. Still, rainbow! Although, after wearing this for a few days, I received different interpretations of it, including: an autumn tree (greens and blue are land), a rainbow-colored mop, and a rainbow centipede (I contributed that one). So, maybe not feather?
Any suggestions on other ways to use LOTS of textured polish in one mani? I can just sit around and do textured gradients forever, but I want to mix it up a bit. Ideas?

Must…use…textures! Maybe I’ll just start doing glitter accent nails or something, but that seems like less fun!
