SinfulColors Curry Up

This is one of those shades that I bought more for the finish than the color... and ended up loving the color now that I'm wearing it! It's definitely a different shade... but different in a really good way!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulColors Curry Up
1 Coat Confetti Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

First of all, let me start by saying that my photos are nawt color accurate. Curry Up leans way more yellow than what you see in my pics. It's honestly very close to Shrek green. Yep... yellowy-lime and sort of snotty at the same time. This polish shimmers thanks to super-fine irridescent blue glitter, with fine coppery-pink glitter sprinkled in. If I had to guess, I'd say that it's an attempt at rose gold glitter.

Rose gold is super trendy right now. As far as a nail polish goes... I don't know that anyone has really duplicated the exact shade. Most of the glitter versions I've seen either lean too pink or too orange. What's interesting about Curry Up though, is the way the coppery-pink glitter comes across. It's not overly bright, but it doesn't disappear entirely either. It reminds me of when you put pepper in soup. A little bit of it dissolves and blends into the broth, but you can still tell it's there.

Was this effect planned? Honestly, I don't know... but I haven't seen any other polishes like it. On one hand... it reminds me of flecked spraypaint on a smaller, more demure level. On the other hand... it could be that the coppery-pink glitter didn't mix as originally intended. Either way... Curry Up is a super unique and different nail polish that you probably want to pick up while it's still around!

Now, as far as the formula goes... the amount of shimmer and glitter in here just might have overloaded the base polish. Curry Up was gloopy on application with every. single. coat. My nails were still a bit patchy at 3 coats, so I painted on the 4th... and things were still a little iffy. Thankfully, after a coat of clear and Seche Vite, everything evened out.

The more I wear Curry Up... the more I like it. I really wasn't sure about this shade of green at all when I bought it, and I've contemplated painting it on my nails more than a few times. I guess in the end, it's kind of like what they say about not judging a book by its cover... Don't judge a polish until you've swatched it!

Would you wear Curry Up?
