Today I have for you another polish from the JulieG Frosted Gumdrops collection – this is Sugar Rush.
As with Hot Cinnamon, it has a gorgeous shimmer to it even though it dries matte. It makes me think of the peel of a tangerine orange because they have a darker skin than a regular orange. I will definitely be wearing these Gumdrop polishes more often 😀
After I polished, I decided that I have all these fimo canes sitting around and I haven’t used them.. at all.. so I thought I would try them out on the textured polish.
I chose a bold blue butterfly and sliced it up with my fimo slicing blade from BornPrettyStore. Slicing fimos takes a LOT of practice to get it the right thickness – you want them pretty thin, without only slicing half of the design. I probably cut about 20 slices and got 10 usable ones. Then I put some top coat on my nail only where I wanted to put the butterfly and stuck the butterfly to it. Normally you would then top it with a top coat to secure it to the nail, but I wanted to keep Sugar Rush in it’s normal textured form, so I didn’t apply the top coat. I recommend the top coat over top when using fimo canes because I was peeling these off the next day 😦
The JulieG Frosted Gumdrops can be found on the Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics site and in Rite-Aid stores in the US.
I found the fimo canes on eBay – you just have to search “nail fimo canes” and there will be lots of different vendors with lots of different designs 🙂
