Julie G Blueberry Fizz

I'm so in love with this polish today--from the Frosted Gum Drops collection, this is the super-sparkling, textured, glitter polish Julie G Blueberry Fizz.

What a great name for this polish--the word "effervescent" totally springs to mind! I find myself wanting to describe it as "delightful" too, and I can't even remember the last time I used that word non-sarcastically (at least, when I wasn't singing Christmas carols with Sgt. Al Powell of the LAPD, and tell me that reference doesn't date me...).

Julie G Blueberry Fizz just gives my eyeballs a happy. And the formula was great! Easy to work with, it spread nicely and dried well, and the finish wasn't rough to the touch at all. The little pieces of silvery, non-matte glitter catch the light so gorgeously, and the sandy, semi-metallic blue is just a fantastic shade. And my grandmother really liked it too, which automatically confers an unlimited awesomeness bonus.

I normally possess all the self-restraint of a caffeinated kitten, especially in the face of all things sparkly, but this is the only one of the Gum Drops I picked up while I was in the States. "Oh, I'll just get the blue," I told myself. "I have Pixie Dusts at home, I don't really need more textured polish, it's just for swatching..." Wrong, wrong, wrong. Guh, I pick the worst times to try to act all prudent and economical, and these were only about $4US anyway! I've worn Blueberry Fizz three times already since I bought it in July, and that's a lot for something I'm not doing nail art on top of. Crushed Candy (magenta) and Rock Candy (dusty teal) are going straight to the wish list.

Julie G (and parent brand Jesse's Girl), if you're listening, kindly make about a jillion more of these? KTHXBAI!

  1. So pretty on you! You absolutely need the teal one. There aren't any other textured polishes in that shade.
