Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Rimmel Sweetie Crush Polishes

**all items purchased by me

Today I have the new, limited edition collection from Rimmel called Sweetie Crush for today's Spotted, Hauled & Swatched post...which I'm coincidentally posting for my unofficial "Textured Thursday" schedule that I was trying to get in the habit of doing.  I've seen this collection at Rite Aid and Giant Eagle (which is where I purchased mine from - fuel perks!); the display also had $1 off coupons so I grabbed one for each polish.  These are Rimmel's version of the textured trend and come in smaller bottles at 0.27 fl. oz. each.

As always, let's get started with the display picture:
All lined up at home:
Sherbet Sweetheart, Candyfloss Cutie (more pink in real life), Fizzy Applelicious, Violet Swizzle, Blueberry Whizz
Label/bottle shots:
Sherbet Sweetheart, Candyfloss Cutie (more pink in real life), Fizzy Applelicious
Violet Swizzle, Blueberry Whizz

And swatches, both on the wheel and on my fingers:
 Sherbet Sweetheart, Candyfloss Cutie, Fizzy Applelicious, Violet Swizzle, Blueberry Whizz
3 coats of each on the wheel (on my nails, however, a couple are 2)
2 coats of Blueberry Whizz on my thumb
3 coats of Sherbet Sweetheart on my pinkie
2 coats of Candyfloss Cutie on my ring finger
3 coats of Fizzy Applelicious on my middle
3 coats of Violet Swizzle on my index

I have a surprising favorite - Sherbet Sweetheart.  It has some extra interest with tiny iridescent hex glitters/sparkles while the rest are much more of a pearl shimmer.  It's also the only yellow in my textured polish collection, so it's a bonus that I like it so much.  As for wear time, my "skittles" was applied over Orly Bonder Wednesday night, and as of the time of writing this post (Thursday night), I have no tip wear or chips.  While I didn't wash my hair or dishes today, I did do laundry, straightened up/swept and washed makeup brushes.  Pretty good I'd say, at least so far.

As to how textured they feel, I would compare them to the Zoya PixieDust feel.  Definitely not scratchy at all, even Sherbet Sweetheart with it's glitters.  Application was nice as well.  The brush was easy to control and I barely had any clean-up to do.  Dry time wasn't too long either.  The colors in the collection are perfect for Spring - at least I think it's supposed to be Spring.

>>I'm going to have a part 2 to this post soon with some comparisons to other textured polishes I have in my collection.<<

Are you over the textured trend?  Or are you planning on getting any of these Rimmel Sweetie Crush polishes?
