Hi Guys! I’m back with my Polish of the Week post! It’s been so long that I’ve shared my nail polish of the week. But here I am with my 4th of July edition post. 🙂

Polish of the Week!

I love nail polishes, may it be name brand, drugstore or brand that you’ve never heard or seen before. For the past years, I’ve accumulated quite a lot but gave away a ton keeping the ones that I’ve reached the most. One of the few polishes I’ve kept is from the brand SinfulColors I purchased them at Walmart, they are pretty affordable and only cost $1.99 each.

I have  been doing my nails since forever and believe it or not, I’ve only been to a nail salon once. YES, just ONE TIME and that was a few hours before my flight coming here in the USA for the very first time (I ran out of time so I had to get it done quick). So, If you want to know how I take care of my nails, here is a link to my previous post Polish of the Week! and I still do the same exact step to date.

So, here are the things that I used for my nails/polish for this week.

  • Base Coat – OPI
  • Nail Polish/polishes
  • Nail Art and Dotting Tool
  • Top Coat – Rimmel London

I went shopping without any intention of purchasing another nail polish (will post a nail polish haul soon by the way) but SinfulColors just came out with their KYLIE JENNER Collection (NO I AM NOT A FAN OF THE JENNER/KARDASHIAN FAMILY) but the shade options on this collection are just beautiful that I had to pick one. This is called SINFULSHINE with Gel Tech (Gel Tech??) so that made me curious even more.

SinfulColors in Palm Breeze is one of my past purchases. I love the subtle shimmer effect on this nail polish and it’s quick dry too so that’s a huge plus for me. I picked to use this shade for this week as I cannot wait for spring and start wearing more bright or pastel colors.

SinfulShine in Slay Grey is from the Kylie Collection with a shimmering effect as well. It’s obviously in a nice silvery-grey shade which I can use as an accent or simply use this by itself.

So here’s what I came up with!

I don’t see any difference on the formulation on the SinfulCOLORS to the SinfulSHINE with Gel Tech collection. I couldn’t even see the “Gel” effect on this nail polish. However, both nail polishes are quick dry, it has a slight scent (typical nail polish scent) but it doesn’t linger and like I mentioned above, they have a WIDE variety of color selection.

“All made in the USA, with the quality you expect from a leading nail brand, without formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.”

If you want to know more about Formaldehyde click HERE, for Toluene click HERE and DBP (Dibutyl phthalate) click HERE.

I added a touch of bling to the nail just for fun! ❤

Perhaps, I would purchase a different color and apply multiple coats to see the “Gel Tech” effect that they’re talking about. HAHA

Have you guys tried this SinfulColors/SinfulShine nail polishes?

Hurray to me.. pheww…And Thank’s to All of You as you’ve encouraged me to continue sharing, in fact you made my blogging moment so much fun. 🙂 Continue reading “Polish of the Week!”

Polish of the week!

Here I go again with my other obsession. Nails, nail polish, nail art or anything related to nails makes me happy. This is just a quick post to show you what I did with my nails this week.

Recently I posted a Beauty Haul! and if you’ve checked it out I’m sure you’ve seen some of the MILANI Color Statement Nail Lacquer that I bought.

I wanted to use all the shades that I purchased because they’re just really beautiful but I didn’t want to look funny specially at work so I settled with two shades instead.

In case you’re wondering how I divided the colors,

  • First, of course I need to apply a Base Coat (OPI)
  • second, I painted my nails with the shade Pink Beige
  • then I had to let it dry.
  • placed a clear tape to cover the other part of my nail and since I didn’t have a proper nail accessory, I ended up using a clear tape “be innovative” you know. 🙂
  • then I applied the shade Mauving Forward
  • and finished it with Milani’s Quick Dry Top Coat

I know.. I know.. it’s not great! but practice makes perfect right?

Just an insight, this MILANI COLOR STATEMENT NAIL LACQUER is very smooth, very thick and super rich in color. It does have a glossy finish in just one coat and is available in a variety of different finishes – cream, sheer, metallic or with glitters and comes in 37 shades. It didn’t say that this nail polish is a quick dry though but it felt like it is. However, since the Top Coat is definitely a quick dry, then that made this nail polish to dry even quicker.

And.. voila!
