Sinful Colors Review!!!

 Ok so I wanna tell you all about these Sinful Colors polishes I got from my sister Jill over at Jilltastic Nail Design. She is an amazing person!!!! Well, first thing you want to know is that this is the first time I have ever used these. I truly love them!!!! The colors Jill picked out for me are fantastic. I HAD to swatch them all because they looked so pretty in the bottle I just had to see what they would look like out of the bottle.
So, here they are!
 This is "Snow Me White" and I love it! It's hard to tell in the pic but the nail right above the Brand Name is painted with this white.
Now, This is "Neon Melon"! If you ever needed a neon yellow that looks like a highlighter marker then this is the polish for you!!!
This beautiful neon pink is called "24/7"! I think it is a great pink that really pops out at ya!!!

This is called "Irish Green" which my hubby actually said would look great to use for four leaf clovers!!! So I guess I know what I'll be doing for my next St. Patty's Day mani!!!
This bold blue is named "Why Not". Cool name huh?!? I love it!!! I think this would be an amazing color to use for flowers or butterfly nails.
*NOTE* all the above swatches have no top coat
 And now for Jilltastic's patented penny-brush comparison.

So, I have to say that I think I am in LOVE with Sinful Colors!!!! They are great!!! You really need to use 2 coats to get the full effect of the polish. The first coat looks a little streaky but that clears right up with the second coat. The brush size is pretty standard but, I think it works great!!! I would definitely recommend buying Sinful Colors' polishes!!!

Purple Diamonds!!!

Ok so, what I did today actually looked better in my head than it turned out on my nails. I wanted to do something with the filmos that my friend gave me and i wanted glitter. Well, I got both and it didn't turn out the way I wanted it. I know it's not perfect but it is all mine!!! I really love it when I can call one of my mani's a "Lovely Lady" original!!! I like trying to do something different than what everyone else is doing. I think it shows character and dedication. It may not always turn out to be beautiful but, it's always different!!
So here it is! Please feel free to comment, even if you don't like it. Constructive criticism is always welcome!
Please remember I like like CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM! Not mean and unhelpful comments! I know it's not the best but, it's starting to grow on me.
Now for the base color I used Cover Girl's Luxe Lilac. I have to say I wasn't completely impressed with this polish. The formula seems a little thin but, the brush size was very easy to work with. I was a little upset that it took 3 coats to achieve the same color as in the bottle.
For the glitter I used L A Colors Color Craze line in Sparkling Diamonds. Again I had to do 3 coats but that was only because this polish isn't meant to be it's own polish. It's supposed to be an accent glitter. You know just the little ones you use to brighten up a color and give it a little flare?!!
Then of course there are the filmos which in this case I used purple butterflies. I think the purple of the butterflies gives the Lilac polish a beautiful "pinkish" hue.
Now, that's about all there is to it. Oh!!! And there's a top coat of course!!!
So, as an ending note to this blog I would like to ask a question.....
I would like to start designing pre-painted fake nails and open an etsy shop. Does anyone know someone who would be interested in buying them? I'm thinking the prices would only be about $8 for a set of 20 in a custom design just for the buyer. Let me know what you think!!! And PLEASE tell others about my blog!! I'm getting a little sad that I only have 5 followers. What should I do to bring more people to my blog???
