Continuing my reviews of the Novobeads Mini-CZ collection, today’s post focuses on the colorful Fruit Punch Bundle. The mini-CZ are very popular from this brand, but the stock photos does not do justice to the beautiful iridescence and layering of shades in these beads. These CZ are very affordably priced at $25 each or $99 for a kit of 5; I’ve already taken a look at the Lagoon Bundle, Twilight Bundle, Summer Bundle, and Harvest Bundle.
Unlike the previous bundles that I’ve reviewed which have complementary or similar shades, the Fruit Punch Bundle is a wonderful mix of different colors. The names of the beads are deliciously on point and called: Grapefruit, Key Lime, Pink Lemonade, Tropical Ice, and Blueberry. Grapefruit is a peachy pink that’s perfect to represent the citrus fruit. Pink Lemonade is a true almost neon pink, that’s solid throughout the bead. Tropical Ice is a denim shade but reflects darker shades from the sides. Blueberry is a sapphire blue with a metallic sheen that sparkles in the light. Key Lime is bright green around the core with what appears to be yellow on top.
The mini-CZ have an incredible depth, with iridescent colors layered atop one another. Novobeads are large core and compatible with other brands including Pandora. They can now be purchased on Perlen, or their own website as well. I created a motley combination of colors to reflect those in the Fruit Punch bundle and it’s very bright and cheerful. Are you a fan of these mini-CZ? What color is your favorite?
