Ever since I first heard about the JulieG Frosted Gum Drops collection I’ve been anxiously awaiting their arrival at Rite Aid. I finally spotted the display this past week and ended up with the entire collection. I sent a couple to Katie so she’ll be reviewing some as well.
Sugar Rush is a dark orange with significant red undertones packed with lighter orange glitter. In the bottle Sugar Rush was pretty but once you get it on the nail the contrast between the matte orange base color and the super sparkly glitter is gorgeous.
It’s worth noting that with the OPI Liquid Sand polishes I’ve had difficulty with the glitter changing from its original color to silver (you can see an example here). I did not have this problem with Sugar Rush.
The formula was lovely. I applied three coats in my swatches and was happy with the result.
If you’ve been resisting the textured polish trend this collection is a great way to give it a try. JulieG polishes are $3.99 a piece and sold at Rite Aid or on the Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics website (which offers free US shipping on any order over $20).
Instead of wearing Sugar Rush on all my nails I actually added an accent nail using Sally Hansen Barracuda. The color combination was kind of odd but I sort of liked it…in a weird way. There are additional swatches of Sugar Rush along with my strange color combination manicure below the jump!
