I've been reading on the polish blogs about this brand called 'Sinful Colors' and the darling of the collection, Cinderella. I went on a pilgrimage to Walgreens to score some of this magic elixir...
It's not bad for a $2 bottle of polish. I liked the color, but the formula? eh, not so much. First, I tried 3 coats, straight up. It's a beautiful baby blue with a slight, slight pink shimmer. A little sparkly surprise, if you will.
There's still some VNL and it was uneven.. and I just wasn't happy with it. So, I took it off and tried again.
I put on 2 layers of Essie's Borrowed and Blue. It's okay for a pastel.. a little chalky, but had good coverage. I was missin' the sparklies, though.
Then I put one coat of Cinderella over the Essie. This worked for me - and, because I'm not very good at cleaning up my manis, I liked this better than using white as a base. I'm always seeing little white streaks where I don't want them. This blue backed up the Cinderella and let her sparklies shine. Only one finger in the pix, though, because I messed all the others up trying to figure out how to make this work, and I was too tired to do the whole mani!
I found Cinderella at Walgreens for $1.99 a bottle. I also picked up a few other colors I'll show you in a bit. I found that my local Target started carrying the Sinful Colors line, but couldn't find a price.. and no Cinderella.
