Pink Wednesday - Sinful Colors Soul Mate with Funky Fingers Sand and Stilettos

I wanted to do a Pink Wednesday post since we haven't done one in a while and I've been busy with company from out of town visiting.  So today I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Soul Mate, which is a medium dusky pink creme.  I thought the pigmentation was good and it covered well in one coat.  I used two to smooth everything out and because I'm anal like that.  This is a nice enough pink color, I just don't really like how medium pink colors look on me.  I just can't get over thinking they all look like Pepto Bismol.

Once the SC was dry I topped them with Funky Fingers Sand and Stilettos.  This is a THICK holographic glitter in a very light pink base.  And by thick I mean THICK.  It's very similar in consistency to Milani's Rock Star Heavy Glitters.  It kinda reminds me of spreading Elmer's school paste on your fingers.

As I mentioned, its a holographic medium sized glitter in a very light pink base and it's an absolute glitter bomb.  Some people are referring to this as a silver glitter, but to me it's a light pink, so that's what I'm going with.  It looks like Rainbow Brite puked on my nails.

 I like glitter, but wow - this might even be too much for me.   This polish is OPI Teenage Dream on steroids.  It's also very similar to Studio M/Color Club Magic Attraction, but the glitter in MA is smaller and the consistency less dense.

Since the glitter dries very gritty, I used a coat of Gelous to smooth out the surface before applying SV as a top coat and its very smooth and glassy.  I'm dreading removing this one though.  Anyone have a sand blaster I can borrow?
