China Glaze: Texture: Swatches and Review

As part of a product review, I received three shades of the current China Glaze Texture collection.

All I knew about texture on your mani was the texture achieved by doing your nails late at night then going to sleep.  I would wake up with an unpleasant texture on my nails.  (lol) but now, texture, real texture, is a growing trend.

These polishes have not been very popular in my household, but again, My household peeps only own three bottles of nail polish and never use them.
My aunt said she didnt like them because this is how her nails look when she does her nails herself.
My mom remembered doing her nails at the beach once and getting sand all over her mani.
But again, they arent really "qualified" to make such inferences.
Please be guided accordingly.

Let's look at the real deal, then at the bottom I'll tell you what I think.

First up is Toe-Tally Textured is a bright (NOT neon) orange and indeed Toe-tally textured.

Of Coarse is a gorgeous cobalt blue

and lastly, Bump & Grind.  My favorite nail color couldnt have a more appropriate name.

This is what you come up with when on the beach with nothing but a stick and a bottle of toe-tally textured

Applies as a regular polish and dries matte with a texture.  To me, China Glaze texture feels a bit grittier than Zoya Pixie Dust.  Somewhere between PixieDust and fine beach sand.  However, removal is much more easier, no rub-a-dub-dub necessary.  The colors with the mix of texture make for an eye-popping manicure. It's a perfect formula.
