Rimmel Sweetie Crush Polishes | Review

Hello everyone!

Back in the summer, I found these two polishes from Rimmel as part of their Sweetie Crush range. There are five shades in the range, but being a lover of pink and purple nails, these are the two that I picked up. Each being £3.99 in Superdrug, I picked up Violet Swizzle and Candyfloss Cutie. Both of these are 'effect nail polishes' meaning they have a 3D texture.

The best way I can explain the texture is like sand/sandpaper. It's basically colourful sandy polish that becomes sandpaper when you wear it. I loved the idea and the concept and the colours. But actually wearing them has proven a slight challenge. If you need to scratch yourself, you can and you'll get an extra buffing from the textured nails to go with it.

And forget about wearing tights with this on.

They are not something I will re purchase or use a lot sadly. Have you had a better experience with these or is it just me that finds these an problem? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)


  1. these look interesting, but I could see these being a pain and getting caught on delicate fabrics!

    1. They're a lovely colour and look, but not for tights or anything that might snag easily! xx

  2. Looks pretty to the eyes but I can imagine it being a pain to remove off as well. Eek! Thanks for the review :)

    1. Trying to remove it with a cotton pad and polish remover was very time consuming and frustrating!! xx
