China Glaze Texture nail polish collection

My nails are going through some craziness and right before they all popped off I got the chance to swatch China Glaze’s Texture collection. I am still obsessing over texture nail polishes. China Glaze’s are a little different from the Zoya Pixie Dust nail polishes though. These are TRUE textured polishes. They feel bumpy , matte and eccentric. I received this collection to review and if you are a fan of the textured nail polish look, I’m thinking you’ll love these.

China Glaze Texture collection


China Glaze Unrefined

Unrefined is a baby pink. Y’all know I’m no fan of pink polishes but this one definitely has some personality.

China Glaze Of Coarse!

Of Coarse! is a bright, cobalt-blue and I thought for sure this one would stain the nails but a good base coat prevented that from happening.

China Glaze Itty, Bitty & Gritty

Itty, Bitty & Gritty is a melon that I actually looks nice. I’m always iffy about shades like this one but somehow it works.

China Glaze In The Rough

In The Rough is a light lime green. I had a hard time photographing this but it is definitely as bright as it appears. I’m not sure how flattering it is on me though…

China Glaze Toe-tally Textured

Toe-tally Textured is tangerine-orange but it is really very neon. I mean CRAZY neon. I like it!

China Glaze Bump & Grind

Bump & Grind is a hot pinkish-red. I had tough time photographing this one too but it’s probably the most “regular” of all of the colors.

Must Haves:
Toe-tally Textured: It’s just crazy bright and awesome.
Itty, Bitty & Gritty: It’s perfect and sweet and great for those who aren’t really into textures but want to try something different.

I like these textures. A LOT. I really didn’t think I’d like them this much. I found the formula to be easy to work with. For foolproof application try waiting a good 3-5 minutes before applying the second coat. I’m not sure these last as long as a regular nail polish though. In fact, I found them to chip pretty quickly. But whatever…they are still worth the effort because I just think they are that captivating. Way to go China Glaze! Of course you can get these anywhere China Glaze polishes are sold but if you don’t mind waiting and paying for shipping, you can snag them for $3.25 a pop at

Yay or nay to these polishes?

    Totally hate to rain on your parade, but I’m totally hating this trend! Makes me want to grit my teeth like when you hear nails on the chalkboard. Not sure why that’s how I compare it too, but only way I know how haha

    • Brittany

      You aren’t only. I think only us crazed nail polish lovers are really loving this trend. LOL

  • gio

    I love the look of Itty, Bitty & Gritty. It’s pretty and summery.

      And the name is awesome too. :)

    Textured polishes are just NOT for me… Crackle, fuzzy nails, caviar nails, leather-look nails, not a fan. Your swatches are always great, though! :-)

    • Brittany

      The trend definitely isn’t for everyone. Ha!

  • We’ve gone from trying to keep our polish smooth to intentionally making it lumpy and bumby lol.

    • Brittany

      Haha! So true. We’re so backwards. 😉
