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.

National Guacamole Day

When I was doing my nails last night, I had NO idea that the next day was “National Guacamole Day.” I just wanted to use the new Color Street Nail Strips that I got from my sister-in-law…but I googled it, and September 16th IS National Guacamole Day.

I started with Color Street “Let’s Guac and Roll” on my thumb and middle finger. After a coat of Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat on the rest of my nails, I used Sinful Colors “Taco Tuesday” on my index and ring fingers, and Sinful Colors “Lil Beast” on my pinkie. No top coat for scented and textured polishes.

“Taco Tuesday” is THAT scented polish. Yup, it still smells like tacos. It’s been about 24 hours and my fingers still smell vaguely like I’ve been eating Doritos. “Lil Beast” is an alien landscape textured polish and really does look like the outside of an avocado.

I’ve been missing doing fun stuff like this with my nails…Hmmm, need more (stupid, made-up) holiday ideas…

Green Apple Craze

THIS IS NOT WHAT COLOR GREEN APPLES ARE!

I mean seriously – have the folks who name Sinful Colors Nail Polish color blind? Have they ever seen an actual piece of fruit? Or do they just eat tacos and pizza???

ANYWAY, this is Sinful Colors “Green Apple Craze”, a glossy polish that looks rather MINTY if you ask me…

This is two coats of “Green Apple Craze” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. I used Glisten & Glow Top Coat on all my nails, except the pinkies. I used Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat on my pinkies – doesn’t it look like chalk?

Rose Water Delight

I finally remembered not to use a base coat!

Sinful Colors “Rose Water Delight” is another velvet matte polish – those polishes just do NOT like base coats. This is two coats of “Rose Water Delight” – no base coat, no top coat. The bad news is that this polish chipped pretty quickly…but it was less noticeable because of the light color.

I like the matte rose gold look. It reminds me of these cool wine tumblers my husband bought me – they match almost exactly!

Diamonds on my Neck

Still grumbly after the Cheetos Fiasco, I just grabbed a polish out of the TV cabinet to slap on my nails the next night. (Doesn’t everybody dedicate a whole cabinet in their living room to untried nail polish?)

The lucky winner was Sinful Colors Power Paint in “Diamonds on my Neck.” I love this shimmer/foil finish – it doesn’t finish streaky or leave drag marks. It’s just a fantastic, long-lasting polish.

This is two coats of “Diamonds on my Neck” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. Beautiful.

Lavender Notes

I had just re-dyed my hair blue, and the edges of my nails were blue…if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

I chose Sinful Colors “Lavender Notes” to camouflage my stained nails. It worked quite well, if I do say so myself.

This is two coats of “Lavender Notes” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. Since it’s a matte polish, I didn’t use a top coat…EXCEPT Glisten & Glow Top Coat on my pinkies. I really like it better with a glossy top coat – it makes the shimmer really POP!

Pride or 4th?

Why choose between a Pride Month and a 4th of July Mani? Why not both? (Yes, I realize it’s almost mid-July – my manis are as backed up as my colon.)

To be honest, I wasn’t really feeling Independence Day this year…how the hell can anyone celebrate “freedom” right now?

In any case, this is two coats of Sinful Colors “24k Drips” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. I used Sinful Colors “Pride” for my accent nails, topped with Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber. I then topped ALL of my nails with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Snatched Strawberry

If I saw a strawberry this color, I sure wouldn’t eat it – it’s either not ripe yet or rotten!

In any case, this is Sinful Colors “Snatched Strawberry”. It’s another one of those smoothie textured polishes, except instead of black sprinkles, there are white sprinkles? What in the? Black sprinkles would actually make it look MORE like a strawberry? Have these people ever been to the produce section of a grocery store?

This is two coats of “Snatched Strawberry” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. Since it’s a matte polish, I did not use a top coat…but I should have. This polish chipped very quickly!

Thinking of Fiona…

Thinking of Fiona…Shrek’s wife, not the other one!

How old is this polish? 10 years? 12 maybe? It’s OPI “Who the Shrek are You?” from their Shrek Forever After collection. My sister gave it to me when she worked at a fancy salon…the perfect Shrek skin green!

This is two coats of “Who the Shrek are You?” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. I wanted some sparkle, so I used a combination of Sinful Colors “Call You Later” (green glitter) and Sinful Colors “Flame Game” (iridescent flakies) on my my accent nails. I topped those nails with Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber and then ALL of my nails with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I could not stop staring at my nails – I LOVE this color.

I want another Shrek movie, dammit!

Glowin

My nails needed a break!

After we returned from New York, I carefully trimmed each of my poor, neglected fingernails. Several of them were splitting and peeling – I was wondering if maybe the water was harder than I’m used to in Texas? Instead of subjecting them to another round of polish, I decided to try Sinful Colors “Glowin” 3-in-1 Treatment. A sheer wash of color to protect my nails and keep them shiny!

This is two coats of “Glowin” – no base coat, no top coat.
