Sinful Colors Savage-Revisited

Happy Tuesday Loves!

Today I have a reswatch of a little beauty by Sinful Colors: Savage

For some reason, the original post I did on this color is one of the most searched posts on my blog. That being said, I think my original swatches of it were pretty horrible so I decided to redo them and give this polish the love it deserves.

Savage is a really pretty matte turquoise that was randomly released at the beginning of this year. At first it wasn’t marketed that well, but I think it’s been included in some of their recent seasonal displays.

Anyhow, I really, really love this color. I own a lot of Sinful Colors, but this is the only time I’ve seen them make a matte, and they did a really good job with it. The formula is really smooth and it goes on completely opaque in 2 coats without any yucky streaking or chalkiness that you often see with mattes. Check it out (try to ignore the horrible stainage on my cuticles):

And just for fun, here it is with a top coat:

So what do you think of Savage?

Do you prefer it matte or with a topcoat?

Sinful Colors Amethyst and China Glaze Electric Lilac

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Sorry today’s post is a bit late, I couldn’t drag myself out of bed this morning. I’m still feeling kinda crummy so I’m gonna try to keep this short and sweet…

First up is Sinful Colors Amethyst. This is a beautiful purple creme that just came out in their new Go Plaid collection. I had to snag this baby because I love purples and I’m always excited when Sinful Colors come out with new shades.

In the pics below I used 2 coats. It went on perfectly and it’s super shiny even without a topcoat. Peep it:

As pretty as Amethyst is, I couldn’t leave it alone so I decided to top it off with the glittery goodness of China Glaze Electric Lilac.

Electric Lilac is a gorgeous lilac jelly packed with tons of pale blue, pink and purple glitter. It’s freakin’ amazing. In the pics below I used one coat of it over Amethyst:

See why I can’t get enough purple polish and why I have more purples than any other color in my stash? It’s because of beauties like these two.

Let me know what you think of these lovelies, and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

True Blood Nails: True Death Mani

Happy Sunday Peeps!

How does the weekend go by so fast?

Boo for the fact that today being Sunday means tomorrow is Monday, but yay for that fact that today being Sunday means that I’ll get my weekly True Blood fix tonight 🙂

Anyway, I have a quick mani that I did for this weeks installment of True Blood Nails. It didn’t come out exactly as I’d envisioned, so it’s kind of a fail, but oh well.

My plan was to recreate the bloody. disgusting mess that a vampire becomes when they meet the “true death” on my nails. I painted all but my ring finger with Wet ‘n Wild Black Creme, then I splattered on Cult Nails Quench and Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby. Then I painted my ring finger with silver Sally Hansen Celeb City because “silvering” is one of the ways in which a vampire can meet the “true death”. Check it out:

What do you think? Does the red splattered on the black look anything like the bloody pulp the vamps explode into when they die?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend loves, and for you Truebies, enjoy the show tonight!

Blame It On Fat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday Ya’ll 🙂

 

Ok, so I am so slow…I totally thought that Fat Tuesday was next Tuesday, and not today. It only occurred to me last night that I was sorely mistaken. I totally fail when it comes to keeping track of days of the week and things like that, so I keep a huge calendar on my desk at work and I set up reminders in my cell phone…apparently those didn’t help me this time.

Anyhow, I was totally planning on doing an awesome Mardi Gras water marble for today, but as it snuck up on me, I didn’t get the chance to. But you know what? I’m still gonna do one this weekend because that’s just how I roll 🙂

So instead, I have a mani featuring a nail polish that is still awesomely fitting for the day…

Misa Blame It On Fat Tuesday

It’s a fabulous bright green creme that came out in Misa’s Mardi Gras Collection in Spring of last year, and I totally lovelovelove it! The formula on it was a little thin, which is unusual for Misa, but it built up nicely with 2 coats and I had no application issues.

 

Before we get to the pics, let me share one more thing…tragedy befell one of the nails on my swatching hand last night and it was reduced to a little nubbin 😦 I refuse to file all my other nails down to match it, so until it grows out I’m gonna be swatching my right hand.

 So let’s give righty a warm welcome to the blog…excuse her if she’s a little shy and awkward. She’s just not used to all the attention yet, haha 🙂

And The Winner Is….

So my Sinful Colors giveaway ended on Wednesday night. I promised I’d post the winner yesterday, but I was a little swamped with work, so sorry for the delay. Continue reading

Sinfully Green

Hey Peeps!

Can you believe it’s March already?!

.As we all know, St. Patrick’s day is this month, and in honor of that I’ve decided to bust some of the lovely greens out of my stash and give them a go. My nails are gonna go green and Hulk-out 🙂

Also, today is the last day to enter my Sinful Colors giveaway! If you like Sinful Colors and you like free nail polish, don’t forget to enter!

Anyhow, in honor of both of those things, my NOTD is Sinful Colors Irish Green

When I saw this color it looked so bright and beautiful, and I always have room for more green in my collection, so I promptly plucked it off the shelf.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m sometimes apprehensive about buying SC nail polish, because their formula is so inconsistent. Sometimes it’s awesome and opaque, and other times it’s thin and sheer. Unfortunately, this was one of those “other” times.

Irish Green is super, super sheer, which makes me sad because I so wanted it to be all opaque and lovely. It took 5 very carefully applied coats to get what you see in the pics below, and there’s still slight VNL.

Sinful Colors Hazard

Ok, So I don’t know why I’ve been so obsessed with Sinful Colors lately

Maybe it’s because they finally came out with new shades, or maybe just because it’s nail polish. Either way, they’ve been on my radar as of late.

Anyhow, I went by Walgreens today and I found the 6th new color! Yay! (You can see my swatches of the others here and here)

It’s a peachy-orangey-coral called Hazard, and I’m kinda lovin’ the way it looks on me.

The formula on it was not as great as some of the other new colors, but it still went opaque in 2 coats with nary a streak in sight 🙂 Peep the pics:
