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 :)

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
