Sugar Rush got Caught on Sapphire

**all items purchased by me

I decided to do another nail look today, but this time with a nice cream topped off with glitter.  And apparently this week's nail posts all blue themed (unintentionally) so far.  I've just been reaching for blues more lately for some reason.  So let's see what today's combination looks like!

First I put 2 coats of Sinful Colors Sugar Rush on over a ridge filling base coat.  I'm pretty sure I also used a quick dry top coat but I don't remember if it was China Glaze Fast Track or Out the Door.
Sugar Rush is your basic pastel/baby blue creme polish.  I think this was just a tiny bit thick, but I liked the way it applied.  No application issues - no streakiness and it self-leveled well.  On my swatch wheel, it has an extremely hidden shimmer, but on my nails I'm counting it as a creme since the shimmer is so hidden. 

 Then I wanted to play with one of my new glitter polishes, so I pulled out Wet 'n Wild Caught On Sapphire:
This is one coat of Caught On Sapphire, which is absolutely gorgeous.  Bright blue hex glitters with a super fine, glow-y pinky-purple micro shimmer (clear base).  Love.  The fact that the shimmer is a different color makes it much more unique.  At first, I thought it was basically a dupe of Orly Spazmatic (which I don't have) but the micro shimmer is a different color.
Caught On Sapphire went on fairly easily as well.  Since it's a member of the FastDry line, the drying time was pretty good.  I did go along the free edge to make sure none of the hex glitters were hanging over.

Typical me, both polishes in this look are limited edition.  Caught On Sapphire is part of the Hot Rocks collection (to see my post on the full collection plus swatches, click here).  I do still see the Wet 'n Wild collection at Rite Aid for $1.99.  Sinful Colors Sugar Rush came out in the Sugar Rush collection, which I purchased at Walgreens.  I haven't paid close attention to see if it's still available or not.  For a reminder of what colors came in the Sugar Rush collection (and swatches), you can click here for that post.

Do you have either of these polishes?  What else would you pair Caught On Sapphire with?
