Sinful Colors Green Ocean

Hey guys! I’m knee-deep in Season 3 already of Heroes. I thought my attention would wane but the series managed to grip my attention once again. I will say it’s still nothing like the first season. I guess it’s a mix of the discovery of new characters and them finding out their abilities along with them that contributes to the specialness (is that even a word?) of that season. Anyway, today’s post is on Sinful Colors Green Ocean.

Sinful Colors Green Ocean

Described as “glitter-flecked emerald”, this is one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for this past July 4th. Of all the shades in that collection, I find this one sticking out like a sore thumb. I don’t feel like this shade meshes with the rest in the red, blue and white theme. I know for a fact that this shade is brought back over and over again every year for their St. Patrick’s Day collection. Green Ocean is made up of iridescent green shards along with hex shaped glitter in a clear base. This is what I would call a flakie shade than just a plan glitter. On its own it’s really just a hint of flashing shine when the light hits the iridescent flakie and glitter pieces. As always, I feel that they’re best seen over darker shades. It went on great and dries fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Paste-erd

I’m so glad it’s Thursday today! I’m so ready for the weekend already. I wanted to catch up on my household stuff as well as just relax. I managed to finish the entire first season of Heroes just yesterday. I know, I know….I’m like years behind but I enjoy going through series on marathons like this. I hate having to wait until next week to see what happens (and worse, next season!). I love being able to plow through them but I will tell you that I’m at a good stopping point right now. I guess it’s the Law of Diminishing Returns that came into effect at this point. Anyway, today’s post is on Sinful Colors Paste-erd.

Sinful Colors Paste-erd

Described as “night-sky navy with periwinkle glitter”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Graffiti Bomb Glitters Collection for Summer 2015. This shade is made up of sky or light and black hex glitter speckled with black round and smaller hex glitter as well as some black tinsel or bar glitter in a clear base (I see black and not navy….). Just like Writing On The Wall, I did have to fish out the glitters a little bit and intentionally position them with the brush. It dried fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Pink Ansen

Hey guys! It’s the midweek again and again I’m counting down the days til the weekend! Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Pink Ansen.

Sinful Colors Pink Ansen

Described as “jagged glitter in punchy pink”, this is one of the 29 shades from their Street Fusion Collection for Summer 2015. I really liked this shade in the bottle but it fell flat when applied alone as you can see below. Some glitter shades look absolutely stunning still on its own but this isn’t one of them. I think it’s because of the kind of glitter really — it’s like translucent iridescent glitter in a very light pink tinted base. The glitter itself has a tinge of yellow to it as you can see in the under shade lighting shots below. It looked exponentially better over another shade (as you will see if you keep scrolling towards the bottom of this post). The glitter is packed so there’s no need for me fishing out pieces like Writing On The Wall. Formula is good it dried fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Writing On The Wall

Happy Sunday y’all! The weather is hot but nice today so I snapped a few pictures outside. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Writing On The Wall.

Sinful Colors Writing On The Wall

Described as “shimmery black with ruby flakes”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Graffiti Bomb Glitters Collection for Summer 2015. This shade is made up of red and black hex glitter speckled with black round and smaller hex glitter as well as some black tinsel or bar glitter in a clear base. I did have to fish out the glitters a little bit and intentionally position them with the brush. It dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

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.
