I've dabbled in Essie and have been loving Models Own but the stand out brand has got to go to Sinful Colors.
I'd read a few blog posts and scrolled through a few tweets mentioning they had launched in Boots so made my way in to see what all the fuss was about. I was pleasantly surprised by the large colour range and variety of finishes.
The finishes I could see were glitter, pearl, shimmer, matt and cream. After much deliberation and indecisiveness I opted for 'Cream pink' and 'Folly' both cream finishes.
Cream pink is a bright, neon hot pink shade with a blue undertone and slight gold shimmer throughout. Like most neon polishes it dries almost matt however the gold shimmer is barely noticeable. I found 2 coats was enough to gain an opaque finish which I find is pretty standard for most polishes.
Folly is much more red toned than cream pink, almost a raspberry colour. I found this colour very hard to capture to its most true form. When applying folly the finish was a lot more opaque and could be left with just one coat which is great for those days you are in a hurry!
The shape of the brush is very easy to work with and picks up a lot of polish so just be careful when applying for a smooth application. You can pick Sinful Colors polishes up in Boots for £1.99 and I've also heard they are included in there 3 for 2 deals, win!
I know a few people have had hit or miss experiences with them but I have nothing but good to say.
I'm already thinking about which colours to pick up next, there was a gorgeous bright neon orange which was out of stock last time I'm dying to get my hands on! Have you tried any colours you can recommend?
