By K Sugar Rush - swatches and review

This is a pretty effect polish from By K that also can be used on its own. Iridescent glitter in a sheer pink base. You need three coats for it to be opaque on its own but only one thin coat to get a pretty effect on top of other polishes.

I tried Sugar Rush over all twelve of By K's summer and fall 2014 polishes but I thought it looked absolutely best over the green ones. So two pics today, one of Sugar Rush on its own and one pic with it layered over some lovely greens.

I like it best layered and absolutely best over the green blue glitter polish Waterfall (ring finger).

One coat of Sugar Rush layered over:
pinkie - By K Mermaid Cave
ring - By K Waterfall
middle - By K Glacier
index - By K Limelight


Type of polish: Glitter.

Number of coats: Three on its own. One as layered.

Formula: Good formula. On the thicker side but not gluey. Perfect glitter flow!

Brush: Thin straight cut brush.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 3+/5

I'm not that much into layering and effect top coats but this is a fun top coat which also can be used on it's own. I like that different base polishes brings out different colors on the glitters.

How do you like Sugar Rush?
Is it best on its own or layered?


  1. What a really pretty polish it really does look good layered :-D

  2. I like it. Its pretty by itself or layered over another color.

  3. Jag tycker det ser fint ut, gillade det speciellt över Mermaid Cave.

  4. I like it on its own, but it looks very interesting on the other polishes, I like the combination with By K Glacier :-)
