I still really miffed by last weeks pick, I was so confused about how my manicure turned out. that I went and purchased two bottles from two separate stores and the results are the same… why is a seemly matte nail polish showing up as a satin finish on my nail? Do you think that it has something to do with the fact that I used a  base coat? And yes I did end up using a top coat, but only after it was completely dried with the satin finish… Now I won three bottles of a polish I’m not all that happy about… I’m seriously thinking about contacting Sinful Colors and seeing what the heck is going on. But no matter what Sinful Colors is still  one of my favorite brands of nail polish! The are a good price and very good quality polish (for the most part). I would highly recommend them to anyone who hasn’t tried them

DSC02713This week I wanted a brush start and low and behold I ended up with another neon color!
Innocent is a bright pop of Chartreuse–a light-medium yellow and green hue–with a creamy finish ( isn’t Chartreuse a fun word? …. say it with me Chartreuse…) This color is perfect for the warm weather that is upon (some of) us and not only is it’s eye catching it will look great on anyone.

The application of this polish was fairly easy, the polish was a tad bit on the thick side, so youDSC02709 should be a little careful as it has a tendency to pool if you have too much on the brush, but one coat of this polish and I was done, no need for a second coat, You know how one coat 20140506_110812_resizedpolishes excite me; and I didn’t have to worry.  And as you can tell the color on the nail is exactly the color in the bottle, so you shouldn’t have to worry that the same seems a bit off once you apply it to the nail. Another think that I observe while wearing this polish is that there is no subtle difference in the color based on the light that you’re in… it stays pretty consistent.

Once again I pulled out my nifty little dotting tool and created a simple looking contrast dots on the ring finger to complete the look. The manicure was then topped with Seche Ultra-V topcoat

DSC02725The application of the polish was smooth and I had no issues at all with the brush. Overall I was really impressed with this weeks pick This polish get’s a 10 out of 10! Ladies…run… run and go get this polish!

I am on a hunt. I am on the hunt for Sinful Colors’ Beau Khaki, it’s got to be one of the mostdownload (1) inappropriate nail polish names that I have ever heard and I have decided that I need it! I need it in my life. I have seen it on eBay and Amazon and they want a lot of money for it. So if any of my readers find it at your local Walgreens, Wal-Mart or Target Store, let me know, I am willing to pay for the polish as well as the shipping…if worst comes to worst I will buy it on eBay (ugh!!)

Finally as a last ditch effort to take part of the Sinful Colors $.99 sale at Walgreens, I had to travel all the way to China Town and go to the Walgreen’s there to find some nail polishes, as I motioned last week, the two Walgreen’s near my house were tapped out, so to say that I happy with my meager selections was an understatement. I was only able to get four polishes… but I was still a very happy girl.

This color is part of Sinful Colors Bright Essentials Collections. One of my previous picks (and one of my favorite blue’s ) was also part of this  collection. I am making an effort of wearing more bright colors, and this one certainly fits the bill.

Dream on would be classified a bright violet (actually more of an orchid shade) polish with a satin finish; now I did look up this polish and some people actually said this polish had a matte finish.
The formula on this polish is a bit thin, so you will need at least 3 coats to get it opaque. Not gonna like, I almost gave up on this polish because it’s so thin, every time I would move my hand or try to polish another finger I would end up smudging the polish or it would find it’s way on my hand.  So take your time with this one. One thing that I learned about this polish is that it is notoriously hard to capture the true color of the polish so it may look different in the photographs in this post…even though they were taken while I was in the same position, and in the same amount of light. And word on the curb is that this polish is an exact dupe to Zoya’s Charisma

I gotta say, nothing say spring like a bright neon color and this one certainly hits the nail on the 20140428_145751head. I was concerned about this shade would look on me, but screw that… it looks fantastic on me! I will be honest I am having a hard time wrapping my head round this polish… it seems to be a bit of a chameleon some of the bottles are satin and some are matte… seems very strange.

I did want to do a little nail art, but I wasn’t;t in the mood do to anything time consuming… so dots were it. For this particular art (as you can see there is no rhyme or reason… which is the fun when you choose dots) I I used Sinful Colors20140428_153629 White on White and Endless Blue,,

Seems like Tsuki liked it, but I can only give it a 6 out 10! If I were to buy another bottle of this polish who’s to say it will be exactly the same… too many unknown variables for me. Have you ever tried this polish? Was your experience different than mine. Let me know in the comments below.
