Polish of the Week!

Here’s a quick one for this week!

Since it’s kinda’ Spring, Winter, Summer, Fall… yeah.. a little bit of everything (LOL) so I thought I’d do a very simple yet elegant mani-pedi this time.

First let me show you what I used for my base coat and top coat.

I completely forgot that I still have the  CND Stickey Start/Base Coat. I’ve had this for awhile as you can see on the packaging (the label is so messed up) but I really love this base coat for some reason (I don’t know why).

And I’m sure you’ve seen this Rimmel London Clear Coat so I guess no introduction needed.

Onto the nail polish.

I’ve been a huge fan of Sinful Colors Nail Polish  since forever, they have such great formulation and endless color options plus very affordable too ($2.00 at Walmart). I picked the shade Vacation Time (809) probably because I really need some vacation time myself? HAHA

Also, I really like the brush of Sinful Colors Nail Polish because they are thin and very even which gives you a really nice, seamless finish.

I haven’t done a French Tip manicure for awhile so yeah!

Here is the finish look! ❤

Thanks for dropping by!wink




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?




Polish of the Week!

How are you guys doing? I hope you all are having a great fall but “wintery” feel month.. 🙂

I will be sharing a quick nail polish of the week update for everyone and I hope you’ll like it. Continue reading “Polish of the Week!”

Polish of the Week!💅

A Couple of weeks ago, I used the NYC “Long Wearing” nail enamel/polish for a change and so far it lasted on my nails for at least a week which is a good thing. This time let me try a different brand that I’ve had in my collection for quite sometime now.

Let’s talk Sinful..Yup! You heard it right.. Sinful Colors Professional. I’ve used this before but I didn’t really paid much attention to it until recently. I was going through my nail polish collection and I noticed this shade so I thought why not? So here it is!

2015-20-7--19-43-07As always, I have to apply a base coat prior to the nail polish to avoid nail stain or discoloration on my nails. I used the brand OPI and you can also use the brand of your choice, it just so happened that this is what I have. Then I chose this Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel in the shade Vacation Time #809 and sealed it with Rimmel London Clear coat for a smooth and shiny finish.

2015-20-7--19-43-38I love the shade so much and it’s more on the “mauve’yish-pinkish-nude” shade which looks very elegant that can be worn at any occasion.

So yeah! Another quick post for my Polish of the Week! 🙂
