China Glaze Unrefined

Happy Saturday :D I see that the China Glaze Sea Goddess collection has appeared on eBay so i'm pretty excited about it. Sadly, I have never ever seen a China Glaze sold here in Australia except a nail polish supply store that only had really old ones :( As some may know, I love a textured polish (too much!). Before I go ahead and order some of those polishes, I wanted to try a China Glaze texture I've had for a while but never tried to see how that formula was and what I could expect. This is China Glaze Unrefined from the Texture collection 2013.



Before I purchased this, the swatches I saw were a much lighter pink. This turned out quite a lot darker then I expected, more of a medium bright pink. 
The formula was hard to work with, and I always make the mistake of trying not to use too much polish on the brush so as not to extend drying time more and smudging easier haha. This however needed quite a bit of polish as it was very patchy on the first coat. I then tried to use more on the second and that seemed to cover most mistakes, but also make sure you wait for the first coat to dry because this dragged.
I don't mind the finish at the end, I know it's been referred to as 'popcorn ceiling' but sometimes it's a nice change to have a simple texture not packed with glitters etc. 




I like this polish and the colour. I'm hoping i'll be better next time with applying because I also have Itty, Bitty, Gritty from the collection too that I am excited to try. Now I just need to decide what polishes from the Sea Goddess collection i'm going to 'need desperately' haha

  4. I'm not sure about this one. I think I have one of these polishes but I've never used it because I think the texture would bother me. I really like the pink though, such a cute color!

    1. Yes the texture on this is so rough that it can get caught on material etc. Now i don't know about new Sea Goddess collection because the finish is very similar. Haha that pink though ;)
