So I’ve been on the hunt for this purple glitter for a while now. YES, it IS a Justin Bieber polish from the One Less Lonely Girl Collection- in his fave color. Luckily T.J. Maxx had it in a combo pack. So they ended up being…$3 a piece? Pretty good considering they’re more then double that at Target and Walmart. Can’t beat a good deal…and pretty glitter. O.O
One Less Lonely Glitter is one full coat on the ring finer and dabbed on the tips of the rest. I can see me using this glitter on LOTS of other colors. Very pretty, very easy to work with, subtle but pretty. Lavender glitter in a clear base could be opaque in 3-4 coats I bet. A right hand photo did you notice that? Haha, kind hard to do but its done lol.
Here’s a quick look at Sinful Colors Slate that I use underneath. 3 easy coats super nice and smooth. Subtle silver shimmer though it.
P.S. Sorry I didn’t clean up for some strange reason, I must have been to excited to photograph it. 😛
Hello! I am just itching for summer. You see, where I live, spring has just barely sprung. So to cheer all you north westerner’s up I put a beautiful sunshiny yellow polish before anything else for this post! I actually purchased this because it was on a promotional display (on sale 99 cents!!) which means once its gone I wont be seeing it for a while. Also, because I was rather angry with Sinful Colors Unicorn, a very soft yellow and frustrating beyond belief.
Sinful Colors Firefly is in 3 coats. It is a little bit sheer and smooth. At 2 coats there was still a bit of a visible nail line. It seems there might be a slight VNL in these pictures.The little bubble on the ringer finger is because of my topcoat. I would almost say this is a shimmer BUT it appears to be more glass flecked. Maybe a combo of both. Either way, its stunning for a yellow. I’ve never been partial to yellow but this would be on my top 3!
Firefly IMO goes on a lot better then Unicorn.
Hello and welcome! If you’re new here you should check out the last 3 posts so that the next statement makes sense. This is the last of “the ugly hangnail” photos. Again, I apologize!
Sinful Color’s Zeus is from their spring Cast Away collection. I’m hoping the display is still up, there are a few other’s I would like. The collection has a lot of blues, some purples and a few greens. I think maybe they’re all exclusives to the line except for maybe one.
Zeus may be a dupe for something but I can’t think of it and I don’t own any!
The formula is pretty good, wasn’t as sheer as I thought it might be. I used 2 coats and one coat of SH Insta Dri. this picture is a bit shaded but you can still see the pinky shimmer.
Here you can see the pink shimmer glow!
This is 2 careful coats of Gem. The formula was very good a little thick but not soo much that it’s pulling all the glitters away with it. I say careful because when it comes to multi sized glitter I can be a bit particular about where things go. I bought this because surprisingly with the almost half my collection being glitters- I didn’t have a multi color glitter polish. Before buying this I had Jordana’s Glitters Gemstones, Wet’n wild Party of Five Glitters and this one in my hand. I choose this because WW just didn’t have enough color- or many primary colors for that matter. Jordana’s Gemstones was very similar to Milani’s Gem but it seemed a little more faded, and if I remember correctly- it’s didn’t have multi-sized glitter.
Another 2 careful coats.
Personally I love purples and blues but I still can’t get over Zeus. Since that was the last one of my swatching that day I kept it on for as long as it would last me. Which if you know me, that wasn’t very long.
So what are your thoughts on Zeus?
So on my weekly visit to Walgreen’s I nearly jumped for joy when I saw that Sinful Colors has their own version of a flakies polish called Green Ocean. It goes with their St. Patrick’s Day display! I honestly can’t tell you what else was on display because when I saw that- that was all I saw! I vaguely remember some skinny striping polishes….probably something they always have though. I’ve noticed that with SC, when they have a holiday display it usually contains colors from their core line. But not always…..especially in this case because I’ve never seen Green Ocean (GO) before. I wish I could have SC other “Ocean’s” a blue and a pink! But the pink is called Deep Red Ocean…? W.e! Picture time!
I’m not sure if I care for it over white….my hubby said it looked like a fungus. GO is a little bit gritty especially if you blob it on like I did on a few fingers. A thicker topcoat would work great. Right now I don’t own any other colored flakies but a short while back Zoya had a promotional thing going on where you got 2 free polishes- you just had to pay shipping. And with my polishes came a color chart with their True collection which has the flakies. I also received the Feel collection color chart with 6 empty spaces…sooooo I decided to fill in one with the GO to compare it that way since I do not actually own any Zoya flakies. I thought at first it might be just like Opal since its green too. But when I pulled the brush out I noticed that there was actual glitters in GO. And in the tray it was a bit less green. Kind of an in between Opal and Maisie( which is blue).
After I bought this I almost immediately regretted not buying a back up. I knew I’d be crazy about this! Luckily I live in a rather small town and when I went back almost a week later there was 2 bottles left so I bought them both!….Sad when you think that even those 2 bottles, actually all 3 are cheaper then a China Glaze or an OPI.
