Julie G Gumdrop Blueberry Fizz

Standard

 

Here is another nail polish from the Julie G Gumdrop series!

Blueberry Fizz is a periwinkle glitter polish, with bits of white-silver glitters. This is lil bit different than the Hot Cinnamon polish in that the latter doesn’t have additional glitters. I feel like the additional silver glitter looks like sugar powder, sitting on top of blue-colored gumdrops, and makes the nails appear more gumdrop-like!

Texture is similar to Zoya PixieDust series, and probably OPI Liquid Sand (which I still haven’t tried, so I don’t know!) This one is also really easy to put on, with good coverage. I didn’t use top coat with this baby, because I dig this texture! And it smells kind of sweet, instead of smelling like a nasty nail polish. And most importantly, it’s only $4!!

I actually purchased this one first at Safeway store, went back to get Hot Cinnamon because I was happy with it. Rite Aid stores also carry them, in addition to other Julie G nail polish outside of the Gumdrop series.

All of these photos were taken under a cloudy sunlight.

I am starting to become a big fan of Julie G. 🙂

China Glaze Luxe and Lush over Secret Periwinkle

Standard

Here’s a photo of how Luxe and Lush looks over a lighter color. The blue is China Glaze Secret Periwinkle that my friend Christine has. (Very pretty color, BTW!)

This one was taken outdoor, under shade. Second one, indoor, under office lights. 🙂

The ‘glitters’ appear in rose-gold tone, and someone commented that it looked like I had holes and cracks in my nail. I guess I can see that, too… So maybe I won’t try this combo from now on. Hahaha..

I also tried putting Luxe and Lush over a black nail polish, which does look different.
