If you caught my haul post over on The Daily Varnish Extra then you know I had quite the shopping binge the other day. Grape Gumball was part of that binge. I spotted the Finger Paints Gumballs & Lollipops collection display at Sally’s and I just had to have this polish.
When I first saw Grape Gumball I thought it was just another purple creme. But as soon as I started looking closely at the bottle I realized I was so wrong! Grape Gumball is actually a medium blue based purple packed with subtle shimmer. The shimmer reminds me alot of Essie Smooth Sailing. Just gorgeous.
The formula is fantastic. This could almost be a one coater, but I used two (which was strange as I am a habitual three coater!).
The rest of the Gumdrops & Lollipops collection didn’t wow me, but I’m so glad I picked up Grape Gumball. It’s the perfect purple for Spring!
There are a few more swatches below the jump (including a few shots in direct sunlight).
