You have no idea how excited I was when I received these last Saturday. I had caved and purchased the entire set when Jesse's Girl had the Frosted Gum Drops up for pre-order. These are actually my first texture polishes. Originally, I thought they were already in Rite Aid (whoops!) and went all the way up to where Walmart is (only Rite Aid around is near that store), much to my dismay, they hadn't been released yet!
I didn't get a chance at trying them out until late, late Saturday night (or was it Sunday Morning) because I was seeing just how long my St. Patrick's Day nails would last (A FULL WEEK!).
Without further ado!
There are six colors in total for this collection (now being sold separately), that range from an orange to a purple. They do not all have the same finish though, as I'll mention further down below.
Application as the website states:
For full effect, do not use a base or top coat. Using thin coats, apply 1-3 coats (for full coverage), allowing each layer to dry completely in between layers for full textured effect. This special textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte.
Texture: Sand-like texture, it's definitely different for me. Of course my Mother asked if it meant I could sand things with my nails now. /headdesk
Formula: I had no issues with the formula, save for Blueberry Fizz being a little bit more thinner than the other five. Other than that they all worked brilliantly well.
Noteworthy: I did apply a base coat because it's out of habit, I didn't see any change when it came to the formula or anything of the alike. HOWEVER, when I swatched these on my nail wheel/plate, I tried applying a top coat to them. The top coat seemed to have absorbed into the polish! It doesn't ruin the polish at all, but it will not give any of them a glossy coat or transform them. It disappears... into the sand.
Overall Verdict: I love them! I sincerely hope that more colors get released. I especially hope that maybe a six piece neon collection could be made (that would be AH-MAY-ZING!).
Price: $3.99 each
