Julie G Gumdrop Hot Cinnamon

Standard

 

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! 🙂

Zoya PixieDust Solange

Standard

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!
