I stopped by my local Rite-Aid on the way home yesterday, and I found a bunch of new SinfulColors polishes... I had heard the displays were spotted at Walgreens, so I wasn't really looking for them, I just sort of happened upon them! I needed more cotton balls, and low and behold... 5 bottles of polish just hopped into my hands. Coral Riff was one of them... (and yes, I did remember the cotton balls!)

Coral Riff is part of SinfulColors Simmer Down Collection, and on the display, they're described as a "simmering sands collection." A fitting name, given the fact that it's a collection of warm-toned polishes! I'm always on the lookout for new and different corals, so Coral Riff caught my eye. It leans a little bit more towards the tomatoey red/orange side of coral. The color would be gorgeous on its own, but SinfulColors didn't stop there. They added a generous helping of superfine blue-violet shimmer, taking Coral Riff to a whole new level.

Application was great... Coral Riff actually has a slightly jelly finish to it, and even with 3 coats, I can see a little bit of VNL in person, but I don't think it really translated in my photos. Between the jelly finish and hidden sparkle... Coral Riff was one big happy surprise!

Have you picked up any of the new SinfulColors polishes yet?

  1. OMG! I have been on the hunt for this color! And I found it! This must be one popular color in the SF Bay Area 'cuz on my fourth try I found THE last bottle at Walgreen's :) It's a beautiful color! I have been obsessed with finding a coral with blue-violet shimmer! Yippee! The first time I tried coral was about five years ago. It was a nameless brand color I picked out at my nail place and believe it or not... Yes, it's true, I've been on the hunt for this very color since then. I lo and behold... I found it! Nice swatting, by the way. Thanks!

  2. It's such a great color... so glad you were able to find it!

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3 In case you missed my review of First Kiss , daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health. Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter sha

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon. That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY . This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's? Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones.
