Sinful Colors: I Miss You, Purple Diamond!

I have nothing to disclose. I purchased these polishes.


How is it almost December already? Well, it looks like this is going to be the last of my purple manicures for this month in honor of National Epilepsy Awareness Month. That's one more thing about epilepsy - and I know this is true for most people as well - but it seems like I always have tons of things I need to do and just never enough time or energy to do them. This is perfectly true for people without health problems, but when you have chronic problems like I do.. well, it's just even more so.

Please head on over to PiggieLuv to read my friend Narmai's post about Epilepsy Awareness, she did a beautiful manicure :)

So anyways, I've got 2 Sinful Colors polishes to share with you today. First up is I Miss You.


This is one coat of I Miss You. As you can see, it is a purple based jelly with lots of pretty holo glitters. Sorry for the messy cuticles :P It's obviously sheer, but I'm surprised at home opaque it gets with several coats. For this reason, it does make for a pretty polish to layer with!

-3 coats of I Miss You-

Purple Diamond is a very sheer, light lavender shimmer and I kind of want to say it's a bit iridescent. I suppose some might consider this a frost? I'm not really sure, honestly :P

-1 coat -

 Again, this one is quite sheer so for me.. layering is again necessary! I really love this color, but I do have to say that it's not exactly anything unique. But that's OK.

-2 coats-

I just had to combine these two for a manicure, so I applied 2 coats of Purple Diamond and then topped it with 1 coat of I Miss You. This combination was really beautiful.. it came across as a really pretty purple with just hints of silver sparkle shining through. A fantastic combination.


(sorry for the grainy picture.. not sure why that happened! )

While these two polishes look great together, they do still end up being pretty darn sheer and you can at times see some streaks if not applied perfectly smoothly. But for cheapie drugstore polish, it's not terrible.


Whew! So it looks like my month of purple is over at last. I'm looking forward to doing some reviews soon and a whole bunch of fun Wintery, Christmasy manicures :)
