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.
Unrefined is a baby pink. Y’all know I’m no fan of pink polishes but this one definitely has some personality.
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.
Itty, Bitty & Gritty is a melon that I actually looks nice. I’m always iffy about shades like this one but somehow it works.
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…
Toe-tally Textured is tangerine-orange but it is really very neon. I mean CRAZY neon. I like it!
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.
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 Head2ToeBeauty.com.
Yay or nay to these polishes?
