China Glaze Textures

Move over crackles and make way for the new trend in nail polish this year! Textures. We have already seen textured nail art using flocking powders and caviar beads but China Glaze Textures polishes make this nail trend all in one bottle.

Of Course!


In this collection there are 6 gritty shades! Here's the promo ad from China Glaze Official. 


I got myself two of these gorgeous shades which are all bright and vibrant for springtime or in my part of the world, these are certainly beach colours. The gritty nature of these polishes is similar to fine beach sand. 

Bump & Grind

These polishes apply like a creme polish and as it dries the gritty texture of the polish emerges. As you use the polish it gets rather thick and you will be able to see some of the sandy particles. It reminds me of how the crackle polishes would get thick as you use them. If you are into matte nails, well you would love these since these polishes dry to a matte finish. If you want some shine go ahead and add a shiny top coat but that would smoothen out the texture quite a bit.

One coat Bump & Grind, Two coats Of Course!

How many coats? If you want a fine sand appearance stick to one, thick coat but go ahead and apply a second coat for more rough look that is still gently on the hands. I prefer one thick coat :)

I am expecting these polishes to last me at least a week since that's the time I usually can hold out for before changing them. I'll be sure to update you on their wear. 

So are you feeling this trend? Or would you rather the traditional textured nail art using rhinestones and studs? I'm happy eitherway :)

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush. I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
