Ah textured polishes. Try as I might, I just can’t love you. I often like you, sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised by you, sometimes I tolerate you, but I just can’t love you. As textured polishes go, I think the sparkle through the Rimmel ‘Sweetie Crush’ collection lends itself to a nicer look. While I prefer them with a top coat I realise that this defeats the point of them, but I don’t mind them in their textured state either.
‘Blueberry Whizz’ is one of the more opaque colours and needed 2 coats.
Another 2 coater, pink isn’t my thing but this wasn’t bad.
I love apple flavoured sweeties, didn’t quite work for me in polish form though. Three coats here.
You know my feelings on yellow. Three coats again.
‘Violet Swizzle’ is also a three coater but the lovely lilac colour saves it for me, I quite like this one.
Overall, I’m glad Rimmel are expanding their polish line, but this feels a bit of a too little too late situation if I’m honest. They’re nice, but I don’t think textures are at all timeless, I think (or maybe hope) they’ll be but a distant memory in the near-ish future. Formula wise they were good, the application was nice, though I’m used to textures drying a little faster than these seemed to. For the price though, they’re fun and worth a try if you’re into textures. My picks would be ‘Violet Swizzle’ and ‘Blueberry Whizz’.
