Macaroni in a Pot

Macaroni in a pot…that’s some wet ass polish.

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist. Please forgive me.

This nail that is so reminiscent of the neon orange cheese powder in a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, is Sinful Colors Quick Bliss “Hit the Spot”. I was expecting to hate this on my nails, but it actually looked really nice. It was so bright, I kept surprising myself, doing double takes whenever I’d catch sight of them walking by the bathroom mirror.

This is two coats of “Hit the Spot” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I bet this would look even more like Macaroni & Cheese powder with a matte top coat…hmmmm…

Energetic Snake

Fresh off “Witchy Snake”, I couldn’t wait to try the other Bebe Rexha Snake-like Top Coat. Check out Sinful Colors “SSS Sparkle”.

I wanted a bright primary color that would pop against the gold, so I started with a single coat of Sinful Colors “Energetic Red” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Top Coat. I then topped all of my fingers, except the ring fingers, with “SSS Sparkle”. I finished the job with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I wasn’t expecting the glitter crackle to dissipate so much – it crackles, but also shrank onto the nail, leaving bigger crackles than her black sister.

I really liked the orange leaning “Energetic Red” – it’s still on my toes!

Witchy Snake

I found them! I found the new Bebe Rexha “snake-like top coats” at HEB. Girl, you cannot fool me, those are crackle top coats!

Surprisingly, I don’t own a black crackle, so I was happy to get a pure black crackle in Sinful Colors “Snake it Happen”. (I do have a black with silver glitter, but that DOES NOT COUNT.) There’s also a gold glitter, which you’ll get to see soon.

I finished off my bottle of Glisten & Glow Base Coat and threw away the bottle. It was okay, but I much prefer the Ridge Filling version. I started with one coat of Sinful Colors “Witch’s Brew”, a neon green. I should’ve done more than one coat, because as soon as “Snake it Happen” hit it, the green almost disappeared! Why??? Even though the green nearly disappeared, “Snake it Happen” crackled beautifully.

I finished with Glisten & Glow Top Coat, except for Sinful Colors Radical Matte Top Coat on my ring finger. The main difference is that the matte top coat is snug to the polish and leaves ridges you can feel, whereas the glossy coat is super smooth.

Sinful Station

Is there is a Dollar Tree in the same parking lot as the Honky Bucket I’m eating lunch at, I’m gonna find an excuse to drop in and search for Sinful Colors, even if it’s all the way in College Station.

This particular location had a decent selection of Sinful Colors…except for the fact that almost all of the packages contained “Energetic Red”. I picked a package that paired “Energetic Red” with SinfulShine “Guilty Pleasures”.

I also found a package with rather new polishes – “Witch’s Brew” from last Halloween’s Bebe Rexha “Wicked Neons” collaboration. It’s a blacklight reactive neon green. The package also had the Radical Matte Top Coat. I already have several matte top coats, but what’s one more?

Prosecco

I don’t actually drink Prosecco – almost all wine products give me an immediate headache and throat inflammation to boot. If only I could be one of those “wine moms”…

Sinful Colors SinfulShine “Prosecco” is one of the most popular shades from the core collection, and I can see why. It’s a beautiful taupe-y greige with a gold, bubble-like shimmer. It’s a great polish for vacation, as it’s neutral enough to hide chips.

This is two coats over Glisten & Glow Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Galaxy

Sinful Colors SinfulShine “Galaxy” really does look like the nighttime sky. It’s a midnight blue base, with silver shimmer.

This is two coats of “Galaxy” over Glisten & Glow Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. The formula is silky smooth and applied like a dream. I highly recommend.

I did my toes, too – perfect for a lazy weekend in the pool.

Hella Bright

I was NOT expecting the peach shimmer peaking through the purple polish in Sinful Colors “Hella Bright” – surprise!

How have I missed trying out this polish from last year’s Neon Collection? It’s stunning.

This is two coats of “Hella Bright” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

You’ll notice that I stubified my nails and cut them all fairly short. A few of the longer nails were getting sharp, so I just went ahead and cut them all to match. I feel really self-conscious of how short they are…

Clay Me

Sinful Colors “Clay Me” reminds me of terra cotta pottery, but shimmery. The sticker says “Stoned Crystal Shimmer”, but it’s from the 2017 “Desert Diva” Collection. It was another cheap Dollar Tree find…

This is a THICK polish – this is two coats, but I could’ve gotten away with just one. I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat.

I had a hunch that this polish would look better with a matte top coat, so I used Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat on all of my nails, except the pinky. It’s not bad looking shiny – the regular Glisten & Glow Top Coat makes it look like wet pottery!

+

Juicy

Juicy is one of those words…some people cringe at the word “moist”, but “juicy” is the word that makes me gag. The worst is when someone refers to their ass as “juicy” – no ma’am!

Sinful Colors Quick Bliss “Juicy”, on the other hand, is a perfect pink creme. It reminds me a plastic pink flamingo!

This is two coats of “Juicy” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. It’s very shiny alone, but it looks even…juicier…with a shiny top coat. Yeah, I went there.

Be warned, this polish is definitely a streaky one – prepare yourself to be cursing the drag marks in your nails during application.

A. Ham

Have you watched Hamilton yet? If you haven’t, beg/borrow/steal a Disney Plus account and watch it. Even though I brought my son to see the touring version a few years ago, there’s nothing like seeing the original cast shine in their roles. Shortly after watching, I had the idea for Hamilton nails.

I was shocked to find that I had NO nail polish with black star glitter. I had silver and gold, as well as red, white and blue – but not black. I also didn’t have any black star decals. I then started raiding the kids’s stickers, nope. I sure as hell wasn’t going to try to paint stars freehand, but then I remembered the moYou London stamping plates that I got in Vegas all those years ago…

I didn’t have a plate with a single star, but one of the plates had a small grouping of stars, so I went with that one. I started with two coats of Sinful Colors SinfulShine “Nola Way” over Glisten & Glow Base Ridge Filling Base Coat. I stamped the stars over my nails and I was shocked that it worked better than I remembered. I’d been avoiding playing with stamping because it seemed too annoying before…but it was kind of fun. I even got cocky enough to try a little fairy stamp on my pinky.

I topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat, which didn’t smear most of my nails. I must have stamped too heavily on the middle finger of my right hand (not pictured), because it looked like a cluster of shooting stars.
