Sinful Colors ~ Sugar Sugar


Sinful Colors ~ Sugar Sugar
Candy cane red with shimmer


There are lots of brands you can’t buy in my part of the world – so I am very grateful for internet shopping. I bought this red polish from Sinful Colors online, and even with the price being doubled because of the postage, it’s still cheap compared to how much a good nail polish costs here.

Sugar Sugar is from the Holiday 2011 Wish collection and it’s a gorgeous shimmery red. It isn’t quite as shimmery as the bottle implies though, but I don’t have a problem with that. I have my own ways of adding bling to a mani!

The formula was good and easy to work with. I was pleasantly satisfied with how it looked after two coats.


Moving on to the bling!
I chose a silver glitter from B. O. called 71. The silver bits are in various sizes, so I was curious to find out how much fishing I would have to do to get the big chunks moving.

As it happens, they came out pretty easily. The problem was actually to get them to leave the brush. There was a lot of pushing around with the brush before they actually ended on the nail. That could quite easily have been annoying.

Here’s how it ended up looking, with a layer of Poshé top coat:



I’ll definitely recommend a layer of top coat between the base colour and the silver chunks, to protect the colour from the pushing around and smearing with the brush.

What do you think? Is it a winner or not? Do you like silver on red?



Opacity: 8/10

    1. Jeg er også ved at være lidt træt af, at alting koster en halv bondegård, og så kan man alligevel ikke få alt det lækre!! :/

      Yay til at få lakker med hjem fra Berlin. Du er møgheldig! :)
