Smitten Polish Huckleberry Gumdrop

Smitten Polish Huckleberry Gumdrop is a robin's egg blue crelly filled with delicate, pearlescent white flakies. I love the look of these soft, subtle flakies. I don't think I've ever tried a polish with this particular type before (all the ones I have are of the iridescent, color-changing variety), but it creates a beautiful effect that's fun yet understated. Coupled with the blue base, it almost reminds me of how you see little glints of sunlight dancing along the water during the summertime.



As I mentioned above, this is a crelly, so the formula is on the sheer side. I needed four coats to reach the level of opacity I like for photos, but if I was just wearing this polish out and about without swatching it, I probably would have stopped at three. The consistency itself is nice and workable.

Huckleberry Gumdrop is my first experience with Smitten Polish (courtesy of the wonderful Ms. Amanda) and it's already got me lusting after some of their other, equally gorgeous shades! I need their holos! You can purchase Smitten Polish from their website.

  1. I love the colour! I have a few Smitten polishes but I don't wear them as much as I should. They really are beautiful.

  2. This is very pretty! I like the subtle quality it has. I have a lot of Smittens in my collection but I actually haven't worn any of them now that I think about it.
