Sinful Colors Star Blast-Off

Hey guys! It’s the start of the weekend for me today technically and I have a fun shade to share with you guys. It’s also perfect for this weekend’s festivities! Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Star Blast-Off.

Sinful Colors Star Blast-Off

Described as “star-spangled red, white, & blue confetti”, this is another one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for 4th of July. This is the glitter topper in that collection and it will go over all the other shades pretty well. Maybe except the white one only because I don’t think the white stars will pop out as much. I thought it would pop out the most against this shade instead of the red or blue as the glitter bits have red and blue in them as well. It’s not as tightly packed as I thought it would be and I did have to fish out the stars. It dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Sinful Colors is available at various retailers and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. They have a list of retailers up on their website here. They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.

Sinful Colors Fuji Fiji

Hey guys! It’s the midweek and pretty soon it’ll be Friday! I’m looking forward to the weekend already! I just wanted to catch up on some household stuff and gather myself to plan for my next Bath & Body Works trip in a few weeks. I hit their semi-annual sale already 3 days straight (I go there during lunch) and I’m all shopped out of what I can get. I’m hoping more stuff will drop in prices and hopefully what I want will still be in stock in about 2 or 3 weeks. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Fuji Fiji.

Sinful Colors Fuji Fiji

Described as “holographic silver glitter”, this is one of the 29 shades from their Street Fusion Collection for Summer 2015. This glitter shade is by no means a stranger to me yet it still feels new. I’ve seen several shades like this from other brands that I own but there’s something about it that makes me feel like it’s not a dupe. Or maybe I just like glitter. It is pretty packed and would make a great glitter topper. Formula is good and dries pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

I love holographic silver glitters like this. I actually love it by itself just like that.

China Glaze Lug Your Designer Baggage

Hey guys! This week sure flew right on by for me. I’m looking forward to the weekend already! I hope the weather isn’t too bad so I can get a few more product shots in to blog about the next few weeks. Today’s post is on a shade I scored on clearance at ULTA last month. Here’s China Glaze Lug Your Designer Baggage.

China Glaze Lug Your Designer Baggage

Lug Your Designer Baggage reminds me of some other shade from China Glaze before that I can’t quite remember. The glitter flakes make me think of capiz shells that is used in some Filipino crafts. It’s a very pretty chocolate brown shade with gold glitter flakes that drew me in. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I don’t know which collection it came out in as I don’t keep up with nail polish collections as much as I used to with a lot of brands these days. I just have too many of them right now and I’ve gone through 3 purges. This one’s a keeper though!


Finger Paints Picnic In The Park Swatches

Hey guys! Happy Monday! Today’s post is on a collection I’ve had for a month or so now but didn’t get around to it until yesterday. Here’s a cute collection from a great brand: Finger Paints Picnic In The Park.

First up is One In A Melon.

Finger Paints One In A Melon

One In A Melon looked kinda red to me just by looking at the bottle but I’m glad it’s actually not. It’s a really dark strawberry pink. The finish on this is super shiny. Formula is good and it dries pretty quick. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Frosty Lemonade.

Finger Paints Frosty Lemonade

Frosty Lemonade is a bright yellow crème shade with the same shiny finish as One In A Melon. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

Up next is You’re So Antsy.

Finger Paints You’re So Antsy

You’re So Antsy is made up of black and white square and hex glitters packed in clear base. This would look good over any of the creme shades in this collection. Formula is good and it dries pretty quick. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Then there’s Sweet Spring.

Finger Paints Sweet Spring

Sweet Spring is a light pink crème shade with the same shiny finish as One In A Melon and Frosty Lemonade. It struck me as almost being pastel pink but not quite. I think I have a similar shade somewhere in my stash from the same brand. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Grassy Knoll.

Finger Paints Grassy Knoll

Grassy Knoll is a light pink crème shade that I didn’t care for really. It has the same shiny finish as with the other crème shades in the same collection. Formula for this is on the thinner side compared to the other 3 crème shades. It showed slight streaking on the first coat but evened out with another layer. I dinged the bottom of the nail on one side against the wall right before I took these shots. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Lastly, here’s Picnic Basket.

Finger Paints Picnic Basket

Picnic Basket is a pretty glitter shade made up of red and white square glitter. Formula is good but the glitter is more sparse than You’re So Antsy and I ended up having to fish and dab the glitters out onto my nails. Shown is one coat with no top coat

Overall? Not bad. The formula is pretty decent overall. I wish that I didn’t have to fish out the glitter pieces in Picnic Basket but it’s a pretty common thing with glitter shades from many other brands.

These should be available in Sally Beauty Supply stores and online for around $5.99 each or less if it’s on sale.

Icing Glitterati

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I have another beautiful glitter shade to share with y’all today. I haven’t been to Icing lately, but I’ve been meaning to so I can grab some new shades. Today’s post is on Icing Glitterati.

Icing Glitterati

Glitterati is made up pinkish magenta or fuchsia larger sized hex glitters sprinkled with silver holographic glitter. It’s a stunning shade really and I love it on its own. Glitter is more packed in this shade than compared to Written In The Stars. Formula is nice to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
