I wasn't sure I was going to like this whole textured polish thing. Especially the ones without glitter but I actually think this makes for quite a fun manicure. Since I didn't want to invest in a fad polish that I might not end up liking I went with the ultra affordable Milani option in the colour Shady Gray which I found on CherryCulture.com and while I don't have any other textured polishes to compare it to, it found the formula to be great. Not too thick, easy to work with and dried super fast. I was also a little worried that the gritty feeling on my nails would be annoying but it feels fine. In all I would give this polish a big thumbs up and will be seeking more out in the future.
