P2 Texture Polish - Lovely & Strict

Hi guys! By now the texture polish hype is mostly over, and that makes me quite sad. I really love the look and feel of texture polishes and they are so easy to wear and apply, I would really miss them if every brand stopped making them. Luckily P2 still sells them and even makes new ones. So today I have 2 texture polishes to show: P2 Strict and Lovely. I am going to try to make this hype last as long as I can! Who is with me?




Now, P2 is a brand that is not available in the Netherlands, so I have to go to Germany to get their lovely polishes. As such, I don't know exactly when these textures came out. I do know that they are a bit older already, but they are still readily available.


Lovely and Strict are part of a larger collection of textures, but these 2 spoke to me the most because they go together very well. Lovely is a very soft lilac colour with small and medium glitter particles. The glitter in these polishes is very matte but still gives the polish an interesting sparkle. I applied 2 coats of Lovely on all my fingers except my ring finger, where I am wearing 2 coats of Strict.



Strict is a very interesting colour. As you can see from the small picture to the side, when viewed on it's own its a soft grey, almost charcoal colour with the smallest hint of lilac. But when paired with lovely the lilac takes over and it becomes very hard to call grey any more. Like Lovely, Strict has a mix of small and medium particles. Shown here is 2 coats on all except my ring fingers.

I was very impressed with these textures (as I always am with textures from P2). They are easy to apply and dry very fast and they last a good long while too. I really love how these 2 look together and will probably wear them like this often.


What do you guys think? Do you like these polishes together? Or do you prefer one over the other? Please let me know in the comments! I hope you guys liked this post and see you next week!

  2. I love these!! In fact, I have all P2 sand effect polishes (I actually made my in-laws visit every DM market when they went to Germany on vacation in spring 2013 ;)
    I wonder if they are going to go there soon as there are two new colors available :)

  20. I love texture polishes like this, with the subtle glitter :)

  21. They can collect dirt and oil and stuff easily because of the texture, you could try softly scrubbing your nails with a soft brush if it gets noticeable :)

  28. I love tetured polishes! I don't think I will ever get sick of them as long as companies continue to put out ones I must have!! I think the colors are cohesive enough where they look great together!!!

  32. Ooh, I love these 2! And yes, I'm still completely and fully embracing the textured polishes, they're just so interesting and fun.

  33. Given a choice, I'll always choose the grey (unless there's a red involved). I feel that the hype surrounding texture has just evened off and is now just as valid a finish as anything; like, it's superseded flash-in-the-pan status. I'm not being very eloquent but I font feel it is going/will go the way of crackle but that might just be because I like texture, lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. So pretty! This is like the style I want Zoya to get back to!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ahw that's a shame :( It always sucks to find a colour you really like but in a finish you would rather not wear

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks Dani! Let's hope they keep making them!

    ReplyDelete
  44. :D I'm glad I could introduce you to something you liked!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Strict is really special isn't she? I think the is winning this round!

    ReplyDelete
  46. And so easy to wear and touch up!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I agree, I think texture has more potential to stay relevant than crackle did.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Me too! I really don't like the current textures Zoya is making :(

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yes, their makeup is quite nice as well! They always have really nice eyeliners and pencils in fun colours.
