Twinsie Tuesday: Julie G Crushed Candy

Just when I thought spring was finally coming, it decided to snow here yesterday! Ugh! I feel like all this snow is never going to melt... But with spring (allegedly) on its way, this week's Twinsie Tuesday theme has us showcasing winter to spring transition polishes!

I like to wear something sparkly on my nails...well, all year, really, but especially during winter time. Come spring, I tend to favor pastels. So I picked a polish that had a little something of both: Julie G Crushed Candy! This glittering pink textured polish (part of Julie G's "Gumdrop" line) reminds me of cotton candy you might get at the fair. It's so cute!


The formula is excellent and covers in two coats. The only place I know of to buy Julie G is Rite Aid and the Rite Aid by me is super jank (It's like stepping into a dirty, early 90s timewarp) but my fellow Twinsie, the always helpful Amanda, was kind enough to hook me up with some of these Gumdrop polishes! So a big thanks goes out to her!

I haven't worn a textured polish in a while now so Crushed Candy was a nice reminder of just how much I love them. Plus I've got an extra busy day at work today, so I need a polish that will wear like iron on me and textures never let me down!

Be sure to take a look at what my fellow Twinsies picked as their transitional polishes!

    1. Haha, "jank" is American slang for something that's bad or useless. :)

  4. It snowed here today (central Ohio). It's just so wrong.

    I haven't worn this one yet but I have made it a point (being Rite Aid - less) to acquire these Julie G textures via Groupon deal and ordering from Jesse's Girl cosmetics site. Sadly it appears this one is not on the site now, there are only three of the original ones from last year and then all six of the holiday 2013 ones.

    1. I know, right?! It snowed AGAIN here today...on and off all day. I can't take this snow anymore!

      I do wish Julie G was more accessible. All we have where I live are Walgreen's--which are okay, but I was more of a CVS person before I moved here--and tracking down some of these drugstore polish brands can be tough!

  9. It's freezing here as well. I need to get gas in my car, but no lie i'm too lazy to go in the cold and will wait until it warms up later this week. This manicure is perfect though for a transition polish. I need to get some of these Julie G textures!

    1. Thanks Alaina! Haha I hate having to stop at the gas station. For some reason it always seems like such an ordeal to me and the cold weather certainly doesn't help!

  10. What a great pick! This is beautiful! Is it just me or are your nails longer? They look fantastic!

    1. Thanks Traci! :) And yes, my nails are longer! They've been growing a lot faster and looking a lot healthier thanks to the Barielle Nail Strengthener Cream that Lakeisha turned me on to. It's crazy what a difference it's made!

  11. Augh, these gumdrops are so cute, and I am KICKING myself for not getting more when I saw them last summer. Awesome pick, Chelsea!
