China Glaze Texture Review

When I first heard about the whole texture trend, I wasn't entirely sold on the idea but then the shimmers I tried convinced me so they got me really curious about texture cremes as well.

The China Glaze Texture collection is a set of six bold and summery cremes, let's give them a closer look, shall we?

Formula was consistent on the entire collection so I'll just talk about it here. They all applied really nicely and offered a lot of control. Slightly on the thick side but in a good way, they were almost completely opaque on the first coat. I used two coats and no topcoat in all of my swatches. I recommend using thin coats and waiting a good minute or two between coats to shorten drying time.

Unrefined is a light blue based pink. I'm not really into this time of shade so I don't really like this one, independently of the texture finish. Two coats, no topcoat.

Itty, Bitty & Gritty is a bright coral creme with pink undertones. Now this is a color I love! Absolutely stunning and such a happy shade. Two coats, no topcoat.

Bump & Grind is a darker pink creme with coral undertones. Another gorgeous color and probably one of the few shades of pink I really love. Two coats, no topcoat.

Toe-Tally Textured is a bright tangerine creme. I also love this color! I know, I'm so last year haha. Two coats, no topcoat.

In The Rough is a pale yellow based green creme. I don't think this one looks good on me, so I'm kind of meh about it. Two coats, no topcoat.

Of Coarse! is a bright blue creme. This is one of my favorites as well, perfect for Summer! Two coats, no topcoat.

Overall :
I honestly didn't think much of these texture cremes, I was afraid they'd look like popcorn ceiling but I must say that I love them! They're easy to apply, dry fast, barely require any cleaning and wear like iron. My top picks : Itty, Bitty & Gritty, Bump & Grind, Toe-Tally Textured and Of Coarse!

Did you grab any of these? What do you think about the texture trend?

  1. I have been waiting for Ulta to get these, my three favorites are Unrefined, In The Rough, and Of Course!

  2. I actually really like In the Rough! Lol I think it looks great on you! That blue is amazing though!

  3. I haven't tried them yet but I am intrigued. The popcorn ceiling comment... pretty much my initial reaction to the idea of texture. Does the polish feel heavy or bulky to wear?

    1. They do feel a bit heavier on the nails but I didn't find it to be a problem. I kept touching my nails all day long in a good way when I had them on LOL

  4. I love this finishl. The green one is my favourite from China Glaze. :)

  5. Now I need all of them. Your swatches are so beautiful. I think I need to grab every texture polish there is. :S

  6. I love them! *.*
    your swatch are always amazing!

  7. I really like these! Especially the orange and the green.

  8. I grabbed all 6! The greenish yellow matches my Interchange Yellow Mini Cooper. I love them all and the way they wear. The texture even stays if you use a layer of Seche Vite.
