I have a set of posts ready about Julie G polishes. ^^ Ready?
Julie G nail polishes are sold in Rite Aid stores. The Gumdrop series, of which Hot Cinnamon (below), is one, are the series that have been most widely promoted recently. I actually purchased this one at Bartell, which was carrying few of the gumdrop series for some reason. And hey, guess what, it’s $4!!! Wow!
I feel like it’s pretty similar to Zoya’s PixieDust and probably OPI Liquid Sand series. The most dominant color is cool red, with bits of gold and hot pink glitters. It doesn’t have any weird smell to it, and it puts on really easily. And it didn’t chip for the three days I had it on! I used to think that this kind of texture was off, and that I wouldn’t like it, but I do now. I think they advertised it well. It does really look like gum drops!
Below is how it looks with two coats, under shade, and under sunlight, respectively.
This polish is so fun to put on, and very affordable! I have three more Julie G polish coming up, but I’ll say for now that I have become a fan of this brand! 🙂
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. 🙂
I got to try Zoya for the first time at a friend’s nail party! Now I can say I see what the hype is about.
Solange is part of Zoya PixieDust series. This one is mostly straight up yellow glitter (really yellow!), which feels ‘textured’ and rough. In this example, I applied two coats of Essie Good to Go top coat, but it’s still kind of rough.
First one is under shade, and second one is under sunlight.
Okay, I might be making a Zoya purchase soon in the future!
