JulieG Frosted Gumdrops Collection

I have the entire JulieG Frosted Gumdrops collection to show you all today. These are a great assortment of colors with that sandy/gritty texture. Yadda. Yadda.  Who am I kidding? I'm sure most of you know about these already. Let's get started!

Hot Cinnamon
 Hot Cinnamon is a warm red shimmer.

Sugar Rush
Sugar Rush is bright red-coral shimmer.

Tangerine Dream
Tangerine Dream is a orange shimmer.

Rock Candy
Rock Candy is a teal shimmer with silver glitters. 

Blueberry Fizz
 Blueberry Fizz is a berry blue shimmer with silver glitters.

Crushed Candy
Crushed Candy is a purple shimmer with silver glitters. 

Color & Finish: The Frosted Gumdrop line has a perfect assortment of colors. I love the sparkling finish on all of these, and the textured appearance really suits these colors. I will add, that the warm toned colors have a fine gold glitter added to them, and the cool toned colors have some larger silver pieces. Great line up!

Formula: The formula on all of these was great. These were easy to work with and were a breeze to apply. I used only 2 coats on all of these except Tangerine Dream where I used 3 coats. Top coat is not needed on these, but if you'd like a smoother finish, go for it! 

Texture: These are very textured. The only other textured polishes I have tried are the Milani and OPI ones, but the JulieG ones are a lot grittier and rougher to the touch than the other brands I've tried. Personally, if it weren't for these awesome colors I'd be bit turned off by the texture. I know the texture thing is personal, but I felt a need to share that. 

Price: I pre-ordered this set awhile ago for around $20, but they are $3.99 individually on the Jesse's Girl website and at Rite Aid stores. 

Overall: Love the variety of colors and sparkling finishes on these polishes. The price is a steal for such a great on trend collection, and I think many people will love them. The texture of these is a bit much for me, but I'm willing to overlook it because everything else is so great!

My Ratings: 4.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters. 

Happy Monday!


  1. I feel the same way about textures! I love how it looks but I hate the feel of it. I actually think these ones are a touch smoother than my Zoya Pixiedust polishes, though I haven't tried the OPIs. My favorite are the three silver-based ones because they just look so interesting! I was also surprised that there wasn't a pink in this collection since everyone loves pink so much!

  2. You make all of these look just gorgeous! I've got the OPI Bond Girls mini set, and that's enough texture for me, lol, but you're really tempting me with these... especially the red, teal, and blue. :)

  3. They all look amazing! Textures look cool :D

  4. I really love the textured trend, so these are right up my alley! I'm so glad I was able to get the set in the recent Groupon deal. :-) Like Rebecca said, these are a bit smoother than the Zoya PixieDusts, so anyone who doesn't like those may prefer these.

  5. I love the colors of these. I have Tangerine Dream on right now, but I'm excited to wear the others now!

  6. Those are awesome looking. Need them all. Haha :)

  7. Fun collection- I think Julie did the best job with the marketing on these...gum drops are a lot better than sand or pixie dust! ;)

  8. Ohh there all so pretty. Hot Cinnamon is my favorite.

  9. I am absolutely loving these! Definitely need to see if I can find them somewhere in NYC.
