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?
