Ever see a new nail polish collection and get super excited about it? You can’t wait to get your pretty littler hands on those polishes; and later on your nails? Then that fateful moment happens when the polish is on your nails, and the sky opens up and the angels rejoice…..then you look down on your nails to look at the beauty and the wonderment and realize you absolutely HATE it!!
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM NUMBER IS 103
(and because I don’t have 103 untried polishes I simply added 10 + 3 = 13)
Cotton Candy (from the Sugar Rush Collection)Nail Polish by Sinful Colors
The Nail Polish Lottery Club creates a fun way in which to go through your unused/untried nail polish by selecting a random number each week on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. Based on members’ spreadsheet/database lists, whatever number corresponds on the list with the random number chosen, is the color to try, wear, and post or v-blog about!

This was the first time I painted my nails Second attempt…. even nail art couldn’t help this mess
I love sinful colors, it’s a close second behind my all time favorite polish, which is China Glaze. I lovingly refer to Sinful Colors and the sluttier, cheaper sister of CG. I had no issues putting on this polish: application is always smooth but this polish was a bit on the thin side so I needed to use 3 coats instead of the normal 2 that I use… and even then it still seemed a little translucent (you can sort of tell on the second picture). As for the color I will not so lovingly call this “porn star pink” (This color is prominently featured on the TV show Gypsy Sisters)
The first time I did my nails (Monday night) I had an instant hate for the color…. by Tuesday afternoon it was off my nails. Thursday I had a change of heart and decided to try again, I figured if I put a little argyle nail art as an accent I would like it more…. nope! Still didn’t like it . Now let me just say that I love pink, and I own a lot of pink polishes, but being African American I have to be very cognizant that not every shade of pink is flattering with my coloring and this was one of them. That being said I will save this for the summer and try again…for some odd reason I tend to be a little bit more flexible with the colors that I use on my toes.
Sinful Colors always gets a solid 8.5, but the color was about a 4
Honestly next week’s draw can’t come fast enough…until next time
