Rue 21: Confetti Crush and Feather Effects Nail Polish

I don’t stop into Rue 21 store as much as I used to. But, I’m sure glad I did a couple of weeks ago. I found these…

I purchased these 4…

And, if they have names, the price tag covers it up.

I took photos, at the store, of the ones I didn’t selection to buy…

I prepped to being nail polish play…

This needs to be stated, the Power Gel No-Rub Glitter Polish Remover doesn’t work on bit for me. When I follow the directions, it just gets gummy and shreds the paper towel all over my nails. The super-sized chunky glitter was hard enough to remove with my Zoya Polish Remover. I had to file off plenty of pieces.

Here’s a closer look at the 4 polishes I did get…

If you don’t like big glitter or bar glitter, you won’t care for these at all.

However, I like the way they look. Here’s the one I tried…

The base color is SinfulColors ‘Mauve’, which doesn’t look Mauve but more lilac.

And, I wanted to see how all of them looked over black and some new Wet n Wild polishes I’ll blog about later…

I got a new smart phone and these are photos I played around taking.

Again, as much as I love this glitter polishes, these have to be the most difficult I have ever tried to remove! I believe these polishes are made by Color Club but, I can’t read the label clearly. The Feather Effect polish does say Color Club on the front, though. All of these polishes are super-thick. Great staying power and I only had to give it one coat to get plenty of glitter to transfer to the nail.

While I was at Rue 21, I found these earrings on the clearance rack for a buck…

Often, I find LA Color makeup at Rue 21 and that’s what I went in hoping to find. I didn’t find any new to me makeup but, I love the polishes even though they are truly a pain to remove. Not too bad for the price of 2 for $5.

Do you shop at Rue 21?

  • Oh wow, these look really cool! I’m not a fan of bar glitter, but I love those other large glitter bombs.

    • I go to glitter polish like a magpie. But, when removal comes I gripe like crazy.

  • Those glitter polishes look really cool and I love your earrings!

    • I thought those earrings looked interesting.

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    OMG, those polishes are adorable! I have never heard of Rue 21. Wish we had one around here!!

    • They had them the last few cities I have lived in. Virginia Beach and Orlando, now here in Denver.

  • BeautyJudy

    Ok those glitters are so cute! You introduced me to some awesome Forever 21 polishes when we first met in Florida, now you’re introducing me to Rue 21. It’s a habit you have, starting new lemmings LOL!

    • The prices can be beat! Do you look for polishes at Urban Outfitters too? 😉

  • Oh my gosh – I am so jealous of these I must have them. We don’t have a Rue 21 here, or I would be picking up a few. One of my friends says Rue has some great makeup palettes too… so fun.

    • They have LA Color palettes and that was what I originally went in to look for. Since they didn’t have anything new, I went for the polishes. I can’t believe my restraint in only getting 4!! So many were awesome.

  • Cindy Ingalls

    Those glitter polishes are so unique, and look really fun to play with. Love those earrings too.

    • The uniqueness is what sucks me in!!

  • I love glitter, these are right up my alley 🙂

    • The price was decent too. I’m having fun playing with them.

  • How fun!! I hardly ever wear glitters but these are very pretty

    • I bet you save yourself a ton of headaches not needed to scrub off glitter polish.

  • Norah Salazar

    These are so fun and stunning!

    • It’s to the point, now, that my (elderly) neighbors have to catch up with me to see what wildness I have on my nails this week. They are the sweetest neighbors ever. They’ve taken me right into their fold.

    Is Rue 21 the same as Forever 21? I can’t wear that kind of polish if it’s hard to take off.

    • I don’t think they are affiliated, but I never checked. You’ll not want this polish.

  • OMG how fun are those?!

  • So many confetti polishes. So pretty!

    • So many that I had to limit myself. Ack!

  • Those polishes are so cute! They look like candy and cake sprinkles. I’m digging those earrings, too.

  • I’m loving all those glitter toppers; they are perfect for the Summer.

    • I’ve painted 1 and a half nail wheels just playing with them.

  • I’m not so much into bar glitter, but I love the earrings! You may want to get some of that peel-off base coat since these glitters are so clingy!

  • I actually ordered one of these the other day! I’m a sucker for glitter!

    • You would have fainted from all they had.

    Do you still have the Feather Effects Rainbow polish? I’d love to buy it from you.
