REVIEW: China Glaze Texture Collection Swatches

12:00 AM

The most recent collection released by China Glaze is its Texture Collection, - "a unique new lacquer that applies as a crème but dries with a 3D texture effect".  Many of the other nail polish brands are also releasing similar finishes-Zoya, Milani, Sally Hansen, etc.  I must admit that I was hesitant when I first heard of the collection, because I prefer a smooth finish to my manicures. But I recently received the China Glaze Texture collection to review and surprisingly, I am liking this. It is different but fun.

The application and formulation of the entire collection was pretty consistent. A bit more watery than the other China Glaze polishes I have used. I found that application worked best by applying 2 very thin layers-not loading up the brush  when polishing my nails.  Also, I didn't know what to expect from these polishes, but they removed easily, not like a glitter polish, dried fairly quickly, and very important, did not stain.

There are 6 polishes in this collection: 

Unrefined  I call it a blue-based bubblegum pink.
Unrefined — described as a "bright pink with textured grit"
 Bump & Grind  I would call it a Watermelon.
Bump & Grind— described as a "hot pinkish-red with textured grit"
 Itty, Bitty, & Gritty — a pretty coral-melon
Itty, Bitty & Gritty— described as a "melon with textured grit"
 Toe-Tally Textured — a Mango orange which is one of my top two favorites
Toe-tally Textured— described as a "tangerine-orange with textured grit"
 In The Rough — is a honeydew melon green
In The Rough — described as a "light lime-green with textured grit"
Of Course! Of course, if you've read any of my previous posts, you would know that this blue would be my favorite in the collection.  It's a beautiful cornflower blue.
Of Coarse!— "bright, cobalt-blue with textured grit"
While I have not seen any of the Zoya Pixie Dust polishes in person, it is my understanding that they have a slight sparkle to their finish. This made me wonder what would this China Glaze Texture look like with China Glaze Fairy Dust applied as a top coat? So I gave it a go.  It loses its textured effect but still pretty. China Glaze Fairy Dust is like chocolate, it makes everything better. LOL!


Have you had the chance to pick up any of the new China Glaze Textured polishes? If so, which are your favorites? 

Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
