Get Down To The Nitty Gritty :: Texture Collection by China Glaze

China Glaze introduces Texture, a unique new lacquer that applies as a crème but dries with a 3D texture effect. Don't worry! This is not one of those traditional nail art techniques that require multiple steps. Texture only requires one step, painting the nail. The texture dries matte, but can be combined with a Top Coat for a glossy effect. With a finish similar to that of a sugared rim, Texture is the perfect accessory for a beach day, night-on-the-town, or special rendezvous.

It comes in six bright colors that look like ice cream or candy! They are really just perfect for summer. I started out with Bump & Grind. I applied a top coat. You can see the glossy effect. For the rest of the colors, I did not apply any kind of top coat.

Bump & Grind :: hot pinkish-red with textured grit

In The Rough :: light lime-green with textured grit

Itty, Bitty & Gritty :: melon with textured grit

Of Coarse! :: bright, cobalt-blue with textured grit

Toe-tally Textured :: tangerine-orange with textured grit

Unrefined :: bright pink with textured grit

You can really notice the difference between top coat and no top coat. Also I noticed that most of these can really be applied with only one coat! It is pretty incredible that you get the textured effect with no special tricks required. Pretty cool China Glaze!

  1. What amazing Nail Color by China Glaze. I like the colors and would love to try one of these colors for Summer. So many colors that would brighten my fingers and toes! Great product!

  2. Itis great that you only need one coat. My favorite is the bright pink

  3. I love the blue,my grown girls would love this

  4. I like the lime green color! I'd be interested to see it in person

  5. This seems to be the latest trend here in NY - more and more, I'm seeing textured manis everywhere. At first I really disliked the look, but it "grew on me", and now I think it's really special-looking. And they have such nice colors, too. I'm going to try this (for a pedi, though).


I love your comments!
