Tangerine Dream & Rock Candy

Hey All! I'm back today to show you the second installment of the Julie G Frosted Gumdrops swatches. Today I've got Tangerine Dream and Rock Candy to show you. 


Tangerine Dream is a very pretty orangey-yellow with tiny gold sparkles in it. Looking at this collection, I thought this would be my least favorite and I was pleasantly surprised. While I think this color will look better on me while I'm a bit more tan during the summer, I love it. 




Application for Tangerine Dream was easy, but it is a the sheerest of the six colors. I ended up using three coats here. As usual I waited in between each coat to minimize dragging. 

Next up we have Rock Candy. Those of you that know me in real life know teal is my favorite color. So its no surprise that Rock Candy is my favorite from the collection. Hello Gorgeous! Rock Candy is a medium teal with silver sparkles and larger silver hex glitters in the mix. 




Application was easy and you're looking at two coats here as well. I ended up actually swatching Rock Candy last and wearing it for a few days. I had no problems and only a small chip before I removed it. Removal of these polishes is easiest with the foil method, as the remove very similar to glitter polishes.

What do you think of these colors? Do you have a favorite?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

*all polishes featured in this post were purchased by me

  1. I think Rock Candy is going to be my favorite. Are these pictures taken in your new fancy light box?

    1. I hope so. Its by far the runaway winner for me. They are taken in my new light box. What do you think? I feel like its a huge difference between my photos now and when I started.

  2. I really like the orange one but I'm thinking it's not going to look that great on me. That teal is PRETTY!!! tho... ooooh boy I like it. I was thinking about giving this one to my sister in law because she doesn't have any textured polishes and loves anything and everything blue/green but dang... I might have to keep it. We'll see after I swatch it. ;)

    1. You totally need to keep the teal. Give her the purple or blue one. They are cute, but the teal is just so unique.
