China Glaze Nail Polish – Bump and Grind Review

Hey there!


Product Description:

From our neon’s, to reds, corals, to shades of blue, our colours’ inspiration is found on the shores of Tahiti, the nightlife in New York City, and beauty within every woman. Our unique lacquers contain China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish. These glossy lacquers work in perfect cohesion with our professional nail treatments for lasting strength, durability and overall gorgeous nails.  All China Glaze colours are free of DBP, Toluene and added Formaldehyde.


$4 (without shipping); 250 INR for 14 ml.



It comes in the classic China Glaze packaging. Big glass bottle with a matte black brush handle, that looks sturdy enough. The pink bottle looks so vibrant and cheerful that it just makes my heart sing.


My Take on China Glaze Nail Polish – Bump and Grind:

First off, please excuse that black ring on my index fingernail, it’s my voter’s mark that refuses to go. I have a feeling that my nail is permanently stained and I will need to let the mark grow out. *sigh*  The colour of this polish is a very vibrant neon pink that makes my hands look a tad dark but it’s a perfect polish to use while vacationing on the beach.



The texture granules in this polish are much more than Bump in The Night and Angel Wings, which makes even application a tad slower, but not impossible. Due to the abundance of texture granules, this polish is almost a single coater, I just added the second for my own satisfaction.


Like all textured polishes, chipping is an issue with this nail paint too. It looks perfectly fine for 5-6 hours (much better than the previously reviewed texture polishes) after which a few minor chips near the tip may appear. It’s best to apply a layer of top coat to prevent this. Obviously like previously reviewed polishes, this polish too is a top coat drinker. It drinks top coat like no other and retains its matte finish despite all the top coat-ing.



This polish is vibrant, textured and with a few minor fixable problems. It is certainly well worth the effort put in to resolve those issues!

  • Might look a tad over the top in certain cases.

  1. hey priyanka…when u say 250 INR without shipping…it means u order it online? if yes can i know the site? *happy dance* *happy dance*

    1. I bought it from an American website, hence the price. CG is exorbitantly overpriced priced in India, it’s actual price is only about 250 bucks.
