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 :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
