Sinful Colors and L’Oreal

24 Jul

Yesterday I updated my manicure and pedicure. Yay! It wasn’t too hard for me to pick a pedicure color since I am very into bright pinks and oranges in the summer. More on that in a minute.

Here is my current manicure, Sinful Colors Big Daddy:

This applied like a dream in one coat, but I really wanted to do two coats. This is such a bright magenta pink – I’d almost call it a classic pink color. There is a bit of shrinkage (very slight) due to Seche Vite. I see it on my pinky, but it doesn’t bother me. I have to say, I am very impressed with Sinful Colors. I have a lot of their NPs that can be considered one coaters. This will definitely be one of my top and favorite colors. Have you noticed that there are a lot of racy Sinful Colors names? Ex: Happy Ending, Big Daddy, Under 18 and Gogo Girl. Or maybe I just have a pervy mind!

I never take pictures of my pedicure because I think my feet are funky. Well more like my big toe. I didn’t feel like taking a picture of a nail polish bottle, so here is L’Oreal Pink Shells on my toes:

Notice how I cut out my big toe! And yes, I am wearing furry leopard printed slippers in the summer! Anyway, L’Oreal Pink Shells is to die for! It is certainly pretty on my hands, but I love it on my feet too. You get even coverage in 2 coats, but I prefer to do 3 so the color just seems brighter. This is also going on my favorites list.

Photo dump!

Just pictures this time!

Manicure #19 – China Glaze Sexy in the City. Going to trade this one. I loved it in the bottle, but hated it on me.

Manicure #20 – L’Oreal Yellow Seahorse. Yellow isn’t me and even though you can see VNL, I am keeping it. It’s a HTF polish!

Manicure #21 – L’Oreal Coral Starfish. Love this color. I don’t have pictures, but Pink Shells is to die for too. I haven’t used the blue one yet. L’Oreal did a great job on this collection!

Manicure #22 – Sally  Hansen Complete Manicure in Barracuda. I love this color, but please forgive the nasty cuticles and messed up nails. I will definitely be wearing this again, but allowing more dry time in between coats.

Manicure #23 – Color Club Revealed. I didn’t think I was going to like this, but I do. It looks so much better in other lights. Lots of shimmer! I think I like this better than Essie’s Tard Deco.

Pedicure #9 – Color Club Ultra Astral and Starry Temptress topcoat. I love this collection so much, but it is such a pain to take off. I still love you glitter!

I think is going to be more of a photo dump. Lately I have been feeling too tired to post! Add the fact that I just got back from vacation last week too! Also, I have been working out at 6 am! It is helping me though. Anyway, here are some pictures with some short explanations.

So I can’t believe that I never posted some of these pictures! Anyway, here is my last haul from Transdesign and some polishes from random places like Walgreen’s and Harmon’s:

The entire Starry Temptress collection from Color Club!

The colors are: Ultra Astral, Space Case,  You Got Soul-Ar, Glitter Envy, Otherworldly, Wink, Wink, Twinkle and the Starry Temptress topcoat! I have been waiting for these forever! So far I have used Ultra Astral and You Got Soul-Ar. Sorry, no pictures and they will not be counted in the count of manicures and pedicures!

Sally Hansen Crackles in Fractured Foil and Vintage Violet, OPI Dating A Royal, OPI Lincoln Park After Midnight, China Glaze Senorita Bonita and Essie Coat Azure. I tried the silver crackle very quickly over a light blue (Color Club Take Me to Your Chateau). It cracks well, but it was hard to see with that color combination. I still haven’t tried the other colors.

NYC Color – Chinatown, Flat Iron Green and West Village, NYC Color Starry Silver Glitter, Color Club Age of Aquarius and L’Oreal Pink Shells. I used Pink Shells twice on vacation. The PERFECT vacation at the beach color! Again, no pictures.

Sephora by OPI, 212. I haven’t tried it yet, but I can already tell it is one of my favorites!

All these were a gift! The Wet N Wild Mermaid’s Cove collection:

Atlantis, Waves of Enchantment, Magic Trident, Sea of Dreams. I have tried Waves of Enchantment (again, no pics). I love it!!

Sea Witch, Diving for Pearls, Stream of Wonder and Ocean Grotto.

Next post – a backlog of manicures/pedicures.

Haulin’ … again!
