We've Got A Sweetie Crush

This is Rimmel's new textured collection - Sweetie Crush. The range includes five bright and sugary shades: Voilet Swizzle*, Candyfloss Cutie*, Sherbet Sweetheart*, Fizzy Applelicious* and Blueberry Whizz* - standard brilliant names from Rimmel HQ, although I'm having a nightmare spelling Applelicious! Rimmel describe the collection as 'Textured, sparkling, sugar sweet nails' and we certainly agree!

L-R: Violet Swizzle*, Candyfloss Cutie*, Sherbet Sweetheart*, Fizzy Applelicious*, Blueberry Whizz*

I'd seen a few swatches of this collection before I got my hands on it which didn't fill me with much hope. The colours looked a little translucent, and not as bright as the advertising would suggest. However, those swatches gave me the idea of using a thin coat of white polish as a base in order to brighten the colour, a tactic I often use with fluoros to really bring out the brightness. This seemed to make all the difference as when I swatched the polishes the colours came out really nicely! They are a little thin so I used three coats of each, and no top coat, in the photo above.

The polishes have a sugary textured finish which is great fun for summer, and adds something a little different. You can also add a top coat, if you prefer a gloss finish, although you may need two coats as with all textured polishes it tends to sink in a little on the first coat. The glitter in the polish makes it sparkle in the sunshine and each of the colours catch the light a little differently. 

I have to admit this collection is not something I'd wear regularly, being in my *cough* late twenties, but I imagine a younger audience would go mad over it. A perfect little present for any younger nail polish fans.

Sweetie Crush are out now across the UK with an RRP of £3.99 per polish. 

What do you think of the collection? Are they on your wish list?

Love,

  1. I got Candyfloss Cutie a few weeks ago :) But it's still on my untried pile to be honest (so many polishes, so little time). Fizzy Applelicious and Blueberry Whizz look really great as well!

  2. The bottles for these are so cute! Using white nail polish underneath is such a good idea! I think Blueberry Whizz is my favourite! I have to agree with you though, these aren't something I'd wear on a regular basis either :)

    1. The white really helped bring the colours out. We have seen other swatches where the colours look a bit sheer. E&J.xx

  3. They're quite cute! I thought they might need a few coats though which is a little annoying. Love the Violet Swizzle colour though :)
