Sugar Crush polishes are basically matte glitter polishes, so after drying the surface is rough and only the glitter shine light, not the top coat like in regular glitter polishes. I think this causes the polish to dry really fast, which is a quality I like. The polish is opaque in two layers and doesn't chip easily. The glitter does wear off with time, but on my nails the highest part of the index finger nails started to wear down before there were any chips. I didn't even use a base coat, so it's all thanks to the polish. I believe you could wear matte top coat if you didn't like the rough surface, but I myself loved the texture. The glitter is so fine it won't snag, it just feels like a surface of fine sand on your nails :)
If you add a shiny topcoat, the polish looks just like regular glitter polish (I actually have a glow in the dark topcoat on right now, but it's not in the pictures). But there's one thing that makes this polish different from regular glitter polishes: it's easy to remove. Since the glitter is very small, it won't block the polish remover like in polishes with bigger particles. Since the remover can seep through, the glitter comes off easy. That's what makes this polish very versatile!
+ opaque after two layers
+ dries very fast
+ easy to remove
+ can be made to look like a classic glitter polish by applying shiny topcoat
+ doesn't chip and lasts long
- not very large selection of colours (the collection has nine shades, four of which are pastels that don't really do it for me)
- rough surface is not to everyone's liking
This polish is a great find and I think I'll be wearing this a lot! I've now had it on my nails over six days and I've only had to re-do one nail, I like low maintenance manicures and this polish definitely gives you one.
