Today I have some texture nail polish swatches for you! This time by UK brand Rimmel London. They just released a new limited edition called Sweetie Crush, available in stores this February. The collection features five textures that have a sugary sweet candy theme. I received two shades to swatch for you, let’s take a look!
Rimmel London – Blueberry Whizz: First is the blue shade from the collection. The other shades are pink, yellow, green and purple (shown below). These are sheer jelly textures with tons of silver shimmer to give it a sparkly effect. They definitely remind me of hard candies like lollipops or pick’n mix. I quite like the squishy finish on these, definitely adds a fun twist to the texture finish. I needed three thin coats for a nice coverage.

Rimmel London – Violet Swizzle: The second shade I have is the purple/lavender shade, though it definitely leans towards pink. Especially on the nails! Again, a very squishy candy-like finish with tons of sparkly silver shimmer. Not as obvious on my photos but in person the silver shimmer is pretty gorgeous. Again, three thin coats gave me a good coverage.

Overall these are pretty fun! I’m personally a fan of the texture trend so I really enjoyed these. I love how different brands bring out different types of texture. There’s definitely a broad choice in terms of finishes. The Rimmel London Sweetie Crush shades have a sheer and shimmery finish, they are very appropriate for Spring. In Belgium these will be available for €6.99 at select drugstores. Bottles hold 8ml and have a rounded brush that makes application a breeze.
What do you make of these Rimmel textures? Do you enjoy the texture trend? Let me know in the comments!
