Rimmel Sweetie Crush

Happy Sunday. Sorry this is so late. I have the new Rimmel Sweetie Crush polishes for you tonight.

l to r: Sherbet Sweetheart, Blueberry Whizz, Violet Swizzle, 
Fizzy Applelicious, Candy Floss Cutie

These are Rimmel's contribution to the textured trend - in pastels. Perfect for an Easter skittle.


The brushes in these are the same thick, misshapen kind that are familiar with the Wet-n-Wild polishes. You know the kind. They look like someone tried to make them rounded but missed it by a mile. Still, the width made it easy to cover some of my nails in a single stroke. Formula isn't bad. Despite the brush it was pretty easy to control where the polish went so that I didn't have too much clean up after I got done. 

Lost of sparkles in these. They do dry to a soft textured finish. I put two coats of Orly In A Snap over because I can't help myself. It did take four coats of the polish to come up with the strongest color intensity. Enough to tell the difference between the green and the yellow, anyway. 

Along with two coats of Orly Bonder, that's 8 coats of polish on these fingers but the top coat really dried them quickly.

Sorry I didn't take the time to swatch the colors individually. Since I decided to wear this as a skittle manicure, I just didn't have the time to do them separately.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the blue, I think. 

I know. It surprised me, as well. You would think I'd pick the purple, wouldn't you?

Nails are still too short for doing the tape manicure. It'll probably be another couple of weeks or three before they'll be long enough. I just took a look to see what I had planned for May and it seems I forgot all about May. We'll just have to see what happens. Who knows? I may even get brave enough to attempt something like a water marble or stamping early.

I've also decided that if I'm going to give you all enough content to stick with me, I'm going to have to start doing something rash - like swatching my entire stash. No idea how many bottles there are at the moment. I stopped counting a while ago but I think it's time I look through and remind myself what's actually in there. Hopefully, this will result in more regular posting.

 Meanwhile, thanks for reading and stay tuned.
