Texture Duo

I enjoy the emergence of texture as a classic nail polish option versus a passing trend.

While I don't have a ton of textures, I do have more than even I realize!

Here is L'Oreal Hidden Gems

This shifting polish is one of a group of L'Oreal texture polishes that came out in 2014. I picked this one up on a fluke, thinking I was going to get all the James Bond ladies textures, but ended up not doing any of that.

This is two coats, no top coat. It's got a shift that is fairly hard to capture on camera and it was devilishly slow to dry.

I no longer have it at this writing, moving it along and happily so.

Next up is China Glaze Wish On A Starfish

This is also two coats and a bit of a tricky formula. I'd say that the best result I had was waiting a while between coats.

I can forgive this one a lot. Why? Gold fleck that just masterfully pops out of the orchid pink base. It's bumpier than the L'Oreal, too. I give it props for that.

I love this one thanks to color and texture. This came out in 2014, too in the Sea Goddess collection, which had a lot of nice polishes, though this one is a standout.

Both should show up online at eBay, Amazon, blogsales, etc, so it's not like these are super hard to find.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I am wearing a texture right now - Sinful Colors Surreally Sweet. I got several from this Loreal collection, although not this one, the purple ones (of course).... I had to check my Pinterest board, looks like I got Seahorsin' Aepund from this China Glaze collection.

    1. I think that China Glaze collection was cute.

    2. What an odd autocorrect or typo, lol ... Sorry I did not catch that! Seahorsin Around!

      By the way, one of the odder textures I liked was Finger Paints Sailors Lure (mermaid themed I believe, so looks like "mermaid scales"?)...a lot of people did not like it, and some pix are not flattering, but something about it just had me staring at it all the time I wore it, great duochrome...
