Bells are jingling, snow is glistening and merry tunes abound: It's the season of shimmer (aka: the holidays) and glamour, of course. And your nails deserve a little gift and loving too. Welcome the SinfulColors holiday 2011 collection, Wish, which delights and excites. The collection takes classic colors - like red, green, silver and blue - and kicks them up a notch to be fashion-forward and festive to ring in 2012.
The complete SinfulColors Wish collection for holiday 2011 includes:
Five gem-inspired shades of polish:
SUGAR SUGAR: a candy cane, red-hot tint
MIDNIGHT BLUE: a bold, bright twist on navy
LAST CHANCE: an emerald with depth and allure
DADDY'S GIRL: a deep purple with a drizzle of shimmer and glitter
OUT OF THIS WORLD: a perfect silver with swirls of glimmer
Two metallic shades of nail art:
FLOWER GIRL: a bronzy gold with tons of sparkle
FASHIONISTA: a glitter-laden pewter
Daddy's Girl - dark purple jelly with pink/purple shimmer. Requires 3 coats but totally worth it. I actually have this one in my collection already but never swatched it. Gorgeous!
Last Chance - deep emerald green almost jelly creme. Two coats were all I needed.
Midnight Blue - vibrant royal blue that reminds me of China Glaze Frostbite. I used 2 coats.
Out of this World - Pearlized silver shimmer. This one is unique to my collection. I tend to shy away from these types of colors because I'm afraid of polish strokes or several layers. This one wasn't too bad and I only needed 2 coats.
Sugar Sugar - Red creme with sparse red shimmer. I only used 1 coat but probably needed 2 for complete coverage. It's actually darker in person. My lighting brightened it up a bit.
And some quick nail art with the stripers.
Both swipers were easy to use but the glitter in Fashionistat is not as concentrated as in Flower Girl. I think Flower Girl would look great alone as a full coverage polish.
I was pleasantly surprised at the application of the polishes. I used 2 coats for them all except Daddy's Girl and Sugar Sugar. My favorites from the collection are Daddy's Girl (of course), Last Chance (surprise favorite) and Flower Girl. I'm not sure how many of these are re-promotes. I know I've had Daddy's Girl for quite a while but at $1.99 these are a great buy.
