Sinful Colors ~ I love you


Sinful Colors ~ I love you
Purple jelly with a lighter shade of microshimmer

I got this polish in a swap with sweet Katee from “A Girl and her Polish”, and I am very happy that I asked her if she could find this beauty for me. Purple is my favourite colour nail polish, and this is such a great shade.

What I didn't know when I asked her to please find it for me it that it’s a jelly – not my favourite finish. But the formula was actually okay. And drying time was on the fast side, so I ended up applying two thick coats. If you prefer thin coats, you need at least three coats to achieve opaqueness.

The sun was out, so I snapped a pic to show how shiny it is. Here are two coats, no top coat:


Isn’t that shine just amazing? Here’s a light box pic, where you can see the shimmer. I really like the shimmer in this polish. Still no top coat.


Then I decided to give Nubar’s “Pink Dot” a try before shipping it off to my friend Doctor S Fierceness in a swap. Pink Dot had been sitting unnoticed in my stash for so long that I decided that someone else could probably show it some more love than I’ve been doing. Pink Dot is a sheer pink base with multisized holographic glitters.

Here’s one coat of Pink Dot on top of “I love you”. It’s a sunshine picture and there’s still no top coat involved.



And here’s a shot taken in my lightbox.


I dunno about this. I think it looks good, but still, it’s as if something’s missing, and I can’t figure out what it is… 

... so I gave it a coat of Jesse's Girl "Confetti", which is pink and turquoise bars in a clear base. 

Jesse's Girl - Confetti

Ahhhh! That's much better! :D

    1. I only like jellies if they're so pigmented it's possible to make them opaque :)
      And thanks, I appreciate it!

  7. Enig, jelly finish er heller ikke min favorit. Men hey, den er lilla, så går det :-P
    Jeg overvejede også at lægge Jessie´s girl Confetti på min CC Pussi-licious igår, tror jeg er nødt til det nu :-D
