Cleopatra and Euro Trash

Now, I know gold doesn’t look so good on me.  I just don’t care because I think it’s pretty anyway…  Cleopatra is one of the new glitter polishes released by China Glaze this Fall.  It is a very yellow-toned gold glitter polish.  I know it looks kinda boring in the picture, but I assure you, it has holographic glitter as well!  The holographic glitter shines blue, green and violet and adds a beautiful yet unexpected dimension to this gorgeous glitter polish.  This formula still has a slight grainy texture even with 2 coats of Seche Vite.  In this picture I am wearing 2 coats of Cleopatra;  I could have used 2 more coats judging by the sheerness.

Hey look!  I got a picture with a little holographic glitter showing!

The other nail polish in this picture is Euro Trash by Sinful Colors.  I’ll leave you with some comparison swatches for the heck of it.  Goodnight!

Sinful Colors – Mini-haul

I first discovered Sinful Colors nail polish on a trip to visit my sister in Portland, OR.  We were at Fred Meyer (btw I love that store, almost as good as Target), and came across the Sinful Colors display.  They have a huge selection of beautiful and unusual colors.  Unsure of the quality, I only bought four colors; Fuchsia Purple, Courtney Orange, Goreous, and Sharon’s Heart.  Later that night, I painted my sisters nails Courtney Orange, a gorgeous shimmery deep orange, and mine Fuchsia Purple, a cool shimmery fuchsia.  I was impressed with the formula, and application!  Since I was flying home, I decided to leave them behind with her.

Since then I have been on the lookout for the Sinful Colors brand.  I found them today at Walgreen’s, and they were $1.99 each!  I was so excited that I parked myself in front of the display and browsed the colors for about an hour.  I think this brand is quickly becoming one of my drugstore favorites.  Here’s the 10 great shades I came home with!

Shirley and Buddy (837) is a semi-sheer soft pink with a blue microglitter.  Beautiful Girl (314) is a light, yet not pastel, pink creme.  Cha Cha Red (32) is a dark pink-red creme, and my personal favorite of the bunch.  Shining Heart (271) is a duochrome polish, it has a bright red base with hot pink flash.  Forget Now (321) is a dark pink jelly with tons of hot pink glitter.

Euro Trash (838) is a gold foil with copper-gold glitter throughout.  Gorgeous (293) is a duochrome polish, it has an aqua blue base with a green-yellow flash.  Tokyo Doll (307) is a duochrome polish, it has a mandarin orange base with a hot pink flash.  Bali Mist (387) is a duochrome polish and is semi-sheer, it has a violet base with a faint green-yellow flash.  What’s Your Name (319) is a black polish with tons of aqua blue glitter.

I’m so happy with all of these polishes!  Since it’s dark out, I may be missing something with a couple of these colors, especially the duochromes.  I can’t wait to scope them out in the sunlight and paint them on my tips and toes!
