Flashback to earlier this year: Textured polishes. Textured polishes EVERYWHERE. So many textured polishes. Not many of them catching my interest. Okay, lumpy nail polish, it's different, kinda cool, not really my favorite, it'll pass soon. But textured glitters? Ones that look like sparkling, sugar-coated little gumdrops on your nails? Oh yeah. Now I'm paying attention.
The formula on these is perfect. Good texture, great coverage, very easy application, no running or clumping. Very fast dry time as well. This is three coats of each, but most of the colors looked exactly the same at two coats. Blue-Berry Sweet On You was the only one that I felt needed the third coat. Since these are glitters and have added grit, they need, at the very least, three coats of topcoat if you want to cancel out the textured finish and wear them like a regular glitter polish.
My favorite from this collection was Candy is Dandy. The candy pink shade paired with the sugary-looking glitter (accented with a little bit of hologram glitter!) really drives home that sugary gumdrop theme. Cinna-man of my Dreams was nice because of the multi-color glitter, but it didn't immediately make me think of gumdrops.
