China Glaze Texture Swatches

Hi everyone! Today we’re finally sharing swatches of the China Glaze Texture collection for Summer 2013. This collection features (you guessed it!) six texture finish polishes that are bright, bright and BRIGHT! These shades scream summer at the beach, in so many different ways. Let’s take a look!


These are the six China Glaze Texture collection shades. Aren’t they stunning? There’s a bright pink, corals, orange, green and blue. From left to right the shades are called: Unrefined, Bump & Grind, Itty Bitty & Gritty, Toe-Tally Textured, In The Rough, Of Coarse!. Now, shall we take a look at the nail swatches?


China Glaze Unrefined: First up, this lovely pale (yet bright!) bubblegum pink. This is two coats of texture polish. As you can see the texture finish is very visible, and the polish dries to a matte soft finish. Even though it looks very gritty, it feels surprisingly soft to the touch!


China Glaze Bump & Grind: This is a cute magenta red, not quite pink though not quite red either. Imagine pink and red having a lovechild, this would be the colour that came out! Here you can still see some shine to the polish, as it takes a while before the full matte finish shows. You definitely have to be patient with these texture polishes. They require some tender love and patience!


China Glaze Itty, Bitty & Gritty: This is a lovely coral pink. We love coral shades! And this is such a pretty one. It won’t fail to cheer you up and brighten your day. P.s. this looks stunning as a pedicure too!


China Glaze Toe-Tally Textured: This is a super bright orange! Wow! It just jumps out at you, doesn’t it? It’s even brighter in person too! We know orange polishes aren’t for everyone, but you definitely need to try this one out.


China Glaze In The Rough: This is a fun pale green. We think China Glaze couldn’t decide on whether to include yellow or green in this collection and simply went for a mix of both. This is such a quirky shade! By the way, didn’t they do an awesome job at naming these polishes? We simply love the cute names!


China Glaze Of Coarse!: And of course, the final shade! This is a lovely cobalt blue polish. All swatches were made with two coats but if you layer it slightly thicker you can easily get away with just one coat. They are so opaque! You’ll be very surprised!


And lastly, a pretty pinnable collage and overview of all six shades. Which one do you prefer? We love the coral shade Itty, Bitty & Gritty, but the pale pink Unrefined is definitely worth checking out too. It’s surprisingly wearable and you’ll find yourself falling in love with the texture finish.

The China Glaze Textures are slightly different to the OPI Liquid Sand polishes. These are matte cremes that carry a big punch and a bright pop of color, whereas most OPI Liquid Sands lean more towards the jelly finish and feature shimmery glitters for an entirely different effect. We’re undecided which texture finish effect we love more, but these China Glaze Textures are definitely worth checking out!
