I know it isn’t for everyone, but I love the  “textured” nail polish trend that has been out since spring, especially the sand, stucco, and rock like finishes that have been every where. After falling in love with the whole Sally Hansen “Sugar Coat” line, I wondered what other polishes were out there to experiment with. After just a few clicks, I found there is NO END to the different brands that now have textured polishes. Here is a list of brands that have “sand” textured polishes, along with swatches and links to reviews and even more swatches, enjoy!

    • Thank you!

      Yes! I have recently seen L.A. Girl textures around on Instagram but not in stores yet. Not even sure where to buy that brand? I have also recently seen Sinful Color textured polishes which I’m pretty excited to find.

    I love all different textures on your nails!!! I have always thought about trying a texture polish but was worried that it would come off to easy because I have a very active lifestyle! I 100% love the China Glaze because the colors are neon(my fav colors!) and the texture looks great with the colors, not like most colors see.

    • I’ve actually never had a problem with the texture coming off – and I mean seriously. I actually wore these last summer for a WEEK at a roller derby convention where I skated at least 3-5 hours a day. It actually has been the longest lasting manicure I’ve ever had – the Zoya Pixie Dust polishes. I actually have WAY too many textured polishes – I think over 30 now, lol.
