Hello everyone! Today is that random Monday I picked for the month of August for our ManicURE Mondays!
I’m still testing one of the Sinful Color bottles I picked up a few months ago.
This one’s called “Stella” and it’s a shimmery brown/taupe polish. It’s a nice calm fall/winter colour I think, but a bit too bland for the summer.
We still have a few more weeks of summer after all (hopefully), so I decided to add some more sparkles on the already sparkly number.
I used an H & M nail polish called “Spark me up”, which has red, blue, silver and light blue glitter sparkles, on a clear coat base.
Check out my pinky right above with the glittery sparkles. It made such a difference from the plain brown polish I had.
I think this boring autumn nail colour was transformed into a more appropriate colour for the hot summer days we’ve been having lately!
I have to add that with about 2 coats of the “Stella” and another 2 coats of the “Spark me up”, this manicure lasted me 2 full weeks and that’s even with working almost everyday and cooking too!
(A tip for those who’ve tried it before and find it chips quickly, make sure to apply a very thin first coat and let it dry thoroughly to touch, then apply a thicker second coat and then repeat thorough air drying, after which a colorless topcoat, to make it last long)
That being said, I think Sinful Colors nail polish is definitely worth a try!
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve tried this brand before or if you have another new brand you’re testing out!
Have a great Monday and an even better week ahead!
