Sinful Colors Cinderella

This one was on my wishlist for quite some time & it doesn't disappoint. The formula is streaky & thin, it takes 4 coats to reach full opacity, & it takes a long time to dry but I still love it. Gorgeous baby blue with tiny flakies, so pretty! The next time I use it I'll layer it over something so I don't need 4 coats.

Talk Like A Pirate Day Nails


Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day! I love Pirates!
I used one coat of Pure Ice French Kiss (an amazing polish that I'll review soon!) with one coat of Barry M Silver Sea. One coat of Sinful Secret Admirer (another amazing polish!) topped with China Glaze Matte Magic for the Jolly Roger pirate flag. I used my beloved smARTNails sticker stencil & China Glaze Millennium for the skull and crossbones.

Sinful Mint Apple, Nail Stickers & ManGlaze!


This is three coats of Sinful Mint Apple, a lovely dark mint with silver microshimmer. Another winner from Sinful!

I decided to try some nail art stickers for the first time and I really like the end result.

The next day I decided to try my new ManGlaze polishes that I won from Sara of Daily Polish. So fun! I used Matte-Astrophe on my ring and pinkie and Hot Mess on the other two fingers.

World Cup 2010 Ghana


Ghana was one of my favorite teams last World Cup and they are this time as well. I used China Glaze Solar Power, a Tic Tac red, & BB Couture Poison Ivy for the Ghana Flag. I painted my nail yellow and then the next morning, I used a strip of blue painter's tape to make the green and red stripes. I used my smARTnails sticker stencils for the star. One coat of one of my favorites, Sinful Secret Admirer for the rest of my nails.

World Cup fever is real and I have it! It's safe to say that the World Cup has taken over my life. I've watched all but one game! I'm way behind on the blog! I was supposed to start my blog anniversary giveaway on the 17th but I STILL haven't had a chance to get to it. I promise I will soon.

I wanted to post this yesterday, but no time! So yesterday's World Cup hottie of the day is the entire team of Ghana! Especially Ayew & Gyan!

Isadora Sapphire & Layering With Sinful Hottie


This is 2 coats of Isadora Sapphire. It looks very pretty in the bottle but it just ended up looking like a black creme on my nails most of the time. Nice application but this one isn't making it into my polish rotation.

I put one coat of Sinful Hottie over this manicure and it looks gorgeous! If you like glitter, you must get Sinful Hottie! You can see it layered over China Glaze Adore here.

China Glaze Adore & Layering


This is 2 coats of China Glaze Adore from their Romantique Spring 2009 Collection. I don't like having turquoise nails for reasons that I can't fathom. It's one of my favorite colors, but every time I use a turquoise polish, I want to take it off. I have no explanation at this time.
Anyway, even though it won't be going into my regular rotation, China Glaze Adore is still a definite keeper for Konad and nail art!
I haven't experimented with layering, probably because Ashley & I have very few glitter polishes, just not usually our thing. I do love Sinful Hottie though and I thought it might look cool over China Glaze Adore. I used one coat of Sinful and the results are magical! I even wore this one for two whole days.



It reminds me of the ocean in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, where I lived for four months several years ago.

Mad Max Interceptor & Special Pursuit Nails!


I watched Mad Max for the first time last weekend and as soon as I saw the Yellow Interceptor Car, I knew I'd be doing a version of that sweet paint job on my nails!

Below is the Special Pursuit. I used Sinful Secret Admirer with China Glaze Matte Magic to mimic the awesome Special Pursuit. Matte black nails look evil. I love it!

I used China Glaze Solar Power, OPI Red & OPI Blue My Mind for the Interceptor. My beloved Migi Nail Art Pen for the white stripe.

I have a thing for 70's muscle cars. It's bad. My heart goes all a flutter every time I see one.

Sinful San Francisco & Mardi Gras Nails

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

This is 2 coats of Sinful San Francisco. I could have used a third coat but I knew I was just doing this as the base for my Mardi Gras nails so I left it at two. Very pretty emerald shimmer/glitter but not a color I will be wearing regularly. I'll probably keep it around for holiday nails unless I can find a one coat green shimmer.

This manicure looked so much cooler in my brain! It turned out ok but it was such a pain in the ass that I kind of hated it before I even finished. I love Lacquer Laine's swoop manicures and thought the technique would look great with traditional Mardi Gras colors. I was defeated by my rather small stash. I don't have any one coat golds or greens! I just painted my nails green with Sinful San Francisco and then tried to freehand the gold with the brush part of my gold Migi Nail Art polish. It wasn't opaque so I had to go over it again and I made a mess! The gold started building up a yucky ridge before I figured out that i could paint the gold all the way to the ends of my nails instead of just trying to keep it in a narrow stripe. Next time I try this I need one coat wonders or some masking tape! Oh well, lesson learned. I used Sinful Let's Talk for the purple.

Sinful Vacation Time & A Giveaway Roundup


This is 2 coats of Sinful Vacation Time. This is a nice neutral shade if I need to be conservative with my nails. I really can't figure out what color it is though. Dusty, brownish pink? Help me out ladies. Nice formula & easy application. $2 at Walgreens. Here it is with Konad plate M63 in hounds-tooth. I used E.L.F. Dark Navy ($1) for stamping. Not my best Konad effort, but that hounds-tooth pattern sure is amazing!

Sinful Big Daddy


This is three coats of Sinful Big Daddy. Nice formula & easy application. This a great option for any orange lovers on a budget at $2 a bottle. As far as I can tell it's somewhere between a creme and a jelly. The picture is very color accurate.

Sinful Secret Admirer & A Giveaway Roundup

I have had great luck with the Sinful polishes I have tried so far. Secret Admirer costs $2 & I can get away with just one coat if I'm careful. I really love any nail polish that can look good with one coat. Sometimes I'm in a hurry! Black creme nail polish is not something I'm interested in wearing. (or any of those polishes that look black unless you are in the sun, for that matter!) But the superfine silver shimmer in Secret Admirer makes this black polish a winner for me. This Sinful polish is great for Konad and nail art because it is so pigmented. It worked great for the tuxedo on my Dracula nails.
I used Nail Tek Foundation II on my ring and pinkie fingers for a matte effect.

Sinful Colors - Hottie

This is a polish April bought, but couldn't wear because of her stained nails.
She had me put it on to see what it looked like. I'm not a big fan of glitters. It was fun while I was wearing it though.
This is three coats and was very easy to apply.
It's a cornflower blue base with pastel blue, pink and green glitter that flashes silver.
April is anxiously awaiting the day when her nails are no longer stained so she can wear Sinful Colors Hottie!

My First Nail Polish - Sinful Colors - Cloud 9

Ok, not the first one ever in my life, but it was the first one I picked out for myself when Ashley started trying to get me in to nail polish a few months ago. I love the Sinful Colors. They have some crazy glitters and a few that dry matte. This one isn't particularly unique, but it is very pretty. Nice medium orange shimmer. We get these from Walgreen's for $2. It looks like they just came out with a bunch of new glitters and shimmers, so get to Walgreen's if that is your thing. (Wow my nails are way longer now!)

Sinful Colors - Dream On

 

















I jokingly bought this color because when I picked up the bottle my boyfriend looked horrified. I never thought I'd like the color as much as I do! The polish has application issues but it is well worth the hassle. It dries to a matte finish, which was very hard to capture in the pictures. I love this color and can't stop staring at my nails whenever I wear it!!!
Ashley applied two coats and left off the top coat to keep the matte finish.
Thanks for reading our first post. We'll introduce ourselves in the next one. Post by April Brooks and Ashley Brooks.
