I couldn’t wait to get Sinful Colors “Dark Romance” on my fingers!
“Dark Romance” is from the Bebe Rexha/”Velvet Obsession” Collection. It is a brownish burgundy matte shimmer. This is two coats over Glisten & Glow Base Coat, with NO top coat. The first layer was very, VERY streaky. The polish dries very quickly, which is great…but that also make the polish prone to cracking. I had to be very careful with the second coat – I think I filled in all the cracks. I suspect that the base coat didn’t smooth the surface of my nails enough, so next time I’ll use the Ridge Filling Top Coat.
Like all matte polishes, the lack of top coat means that the polish chips quickly, I feel like this one chipped even more quickly than usual, but it may just have been so obvious because it is a dark polish.
At first, I thought this might be a dupe for Sinful Colors “Haute Koffee” from Kylie’s Collection, but it’s not very similar at all. The base colors are similar, I guess – and they are both matte, but “Dark Romance” has a bold silver shimmer that is very prominent.
