Jello Skittles

2023 is the year of the skittle manicure!

I have declared it, so shall it be.

I call this “Jello Skittles” – because this sheer matte polish looks like Jello.

I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and then two coats of each color. Yellow is Sinful Colors “See-Through Citrine”, green is Sinful Colors “Sheer-Treuse”, teal is Sinful Colors “Turnt-Quoise”, blue is Sinful Colors “Kiss of Cobalt”, and purple is Sinful Colors “Veiled in Violet”.

I didn’t use a top coat, so I could keep the matte finish, but I definitely need to try then with a glossy top coat.

Rock Candy

I wanted something shiny and eye-catching for New Year’s Eve…you know, for the couch…and it turns out that this nail look is about as exciting as my night last night – I was in bed by 10ish and MOST DEFINITELY asleep before midnight.

Sinful Colors “Rock Candy” is from the Jelly Topper Collection – the polish is packed with silver and blue glitter, no complaints there – but the jelly is clear. There’s just not much depth to this polish. Also, my nails are so stained that is appears to have almost a gold cast to it – that’s not the polish, it’s my nails.

This is two coats of “Rock Candy” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber and Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I want glitter, but with something underneath to hide my hideous stained nails…

Queen of Green

Why yes, I AM the Queen of Green.

For the first time in a few years, I am FILLED with XMAS SPIRIT…and I don’t mean alcohol. I am actually excited about Xmas-y nail looks.

This is Sinful Colors “Queen of Green”. She is a sassy, shimmery emerald green. This is two coats of “Queen of Green” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I don’t think it stained my nails like other green nail polishes do, although I am not sure I could tell right now – they are already pretty stained…

Blueberry Macaron

That’s blueberry macaron, NOT blueberry macaroon. A blueberry macaroon would be DISGUSTING.

I did the Velvet Matte right this time! Just two coats of Sinful Colors “Blueberry Macaron” – no base coat, no top coat. It dried perfectly – no wrinkles or creases. There’s a faint gold shimmer undertone to the polish – can you see it in the pic?

Will I ever be finished with the Confection Crush Collection???

Gingerbread Spice, Orange Slice

I promise, this was not planned…but my brunch matched my nails!

Over the Thanksgiving Break, I was running errands with my son and we stopped for brunch at First Watch. As a special treat, we ordered Gingerbread Spice Donut Holes for an appetizer. Not only were they FUCKING DELICIOUS, but they matched my nails!

I am wearing Sinful Colors “Orange Slice” from last winter’s Confection Crush Collection. It’s one of the gumdrop textured polishes and it does NOT look at all like the gummy orange slice candy. I was annoyed until I realized that it looks like candied orange peel! My father-in-law makes them sometimes, and they are delightful.

This is two coats of “Orange Slice” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat.

Sour Melon Crush

“Sour Melon Crush” would make a disgusting candy…but it makes a delicious nail polish.

Yup, this is Sinful Colors “Sour Melon Crush”, from last year’s Confection Crush Collection. It’s another one of those gumdrop textured polishes.

I did two coats of “Sour Melon Crush” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. No top coat.

Cloud 9

I could’ve SWORN that I’ve worn Sinful Colors “Cloud 9” before…but a thorough searching on the site tells me that I have not posted about it since purchasing for Lily in 2016. The bottle is only 2/3 full, so SOMEONE has been wearing it…

This is two coats of “Cloud 9” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Top Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Such a great Autumn/Turkey Day color!

Mantis Nails

This is the last set of Halloween Nails…I promise!

I did these nails to match my Halloween costume – I was a scary Praying Mantis!

I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and two coats of Sinful Colors “Bite”. There’s a slight texture, which is why I picked it. I topped it with Zoya Leopard Spot Topper, and then Glisten & Glow Top Coat to make it shiny.

I really liked these nails.

Plain Blackcherry

Remember “Blackcherry”? Not to be confused with Buckcherry, one of the shittiest band to ever exist. I fucking HATE the song “Crazy Bitch” – it’s so misogynistic and cringey.

Sinful Colors “Blackcherry” has been sitting on my coffee table patiently for nearly a WHOLE YEAR, waiting for me to wear it again. So patient – thank you, “Blackcherry”.

This is two coats of “Blackcherry” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. Isn’t it gorgeous with a shiny top coat? I could get lost in that shimmer…

Just Say It

Ooohhh…hot pink lip glitters!

This is Sinful Colors “Just Say It”, a light purple sheer shimmer, with gold starburst and hot pink lip glitters. The glitters are very sparse – it took a lot of fishing just to get two glitters per nail. Ugh…I hate glitter fishing.

This is two coats of “Just Say It” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber and Glisten & Glow Top Coat.
