Sexy In Sequins is a darkened base with a purple tint. There are little pops of sparkle in green and gold. It also has larger glitter pieces in it, which were visible but not as prominent as the larger glitters in Hidden Gems. It applied well and covered easily in two coats. The brush is a little moppy when it gets the texture polish on it, so make sure you wipe it off a bit to avoid making a mess during application.
Hidden Gems is a blackened base with teal sparkle. This one has large silver glitters in it that show up nicely as the polish dries down. They are a really wonderful addition to what would have otherwise been a simple polish, and bring a lot of interest to the final effect. I used two coats here.
Overall, I had no issues with these textured shades. The texture felt nice to me; it wasn't too rough but still had that unmistakable textured finish. They applied well, had good opacity, and didn't take too long to dry.
I found these at Target, but they should also available at drugstores and locations that sell L'Oreal products (like Bed, Bath, and Beyonds with beauty sections).
