Julie G's Frosted Gumdrops

Greetings all!

Today I have one of the new textured polish collections, the Frosted Gumdrops set from Julie G.

Colors: Hot Cinnamon = Red, Tangerine Dream = Orange with gold shimmer, Rock Candy = Teal/Green with small hex glitters, Blueberry Fizz = Blue/Periwinkle with small hex glitters, Crushed Candy = Purple/Lilac with small hex glitters. Not shown is Sugar Rush = Coral with gold shimmer.
Formula: Very good; not thick and not thin
Application: Easy to work with, slight streakiness on the first coat but evened out with second coat.
Wear: So far no chips or tip wear but I have only had the colors on for a day.
Dupe: These are the first textured polishes I tried, so if there are duplicates I don’t know which polishes they are.
Where to buy: The collection will eventually be available in Rite Aid (I haven’t seen a specific release date yet, keep an eye on their Facebook page for that info) but you can currently buy them from the Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics website here.

Artificial light
While I like this collection overall, the red, coral and orange are my favorites. I am not loving the small hexes in the other three and would prefer the colors without them. And if you haven't tried any of the textured polishes yet this may take a little getting used to. It feels kind of like a coarse nail file, but if you don't like the grit you can use Gelous and a topcoat to smooth it all out.

Have you tried any of the gumdrop colors yet? If not I would check them out.
