Sinful Colors ~ Folly

Sinful Colors ~ Folly  
Dark pink crème


It’s time to play a little bit with layering. I don’t wear pink very often, but I got this polish in a blog sale, so I wanted to play around a bit.

Application was easy, I really like Sinful Colors’ formulas. It spreads out evenly and it covers perfectly in two coats.

It was hard to catch the colour on cam though, but this is as close to the real colour it gets.


Then it was flakie time! I own two Essie polishes, and “Shine of the Times” is one of them. The flakies spread out evenly without much of an effort, and drying time was great. I think I’m going to use this flakie quite a lot.

Unfortunately it made the mani go coral…



… and I am so not into coral colours. So I looked in my stash and found a red glitter from L. A. Girl Glitter Addict called “Animate”, and I thought “Why the heck not…?”

So I applied a coat of that, and then it was more like it. There’s nothing but a good glitter to rescue  a f*cked up mani! :D

Here’s how that looked:


It may not look that different to the first one, but it was. The coral tone was gone, and it was more a mix between red and orange. Here it is from another angle, to show the glitter:


And here’s a pic of the polishes I used:


I post all my experiments here, good or bad. I promise to post something really pretty tomorrow! :)

    1. Thanks! It was a surprise to me that a pink would turn coral - so I guess I learned that lesson now :)

    1. Oh cool! Coral can be alright, it just doesn't look very good with my skin tone. :)

    1. Thank you. I think the glitter did wonders for this mani. I must admit that I was happy when it was time to change the mani though :D

    1. Yeah, it's different, and I like different, for some reason :)

  9. I like them all! I'm not a fan of pink, but for some reason I really like that shade of pink. Maybe because it's bright and not baby-girl pink? Anyway, they all look nice on you!

    1. I'm not a fan of baby-pink either. It can look just fine on others, but it looks really odd on me. :) And thanks - I appreciate it!
