Skittles Anyone? Purple/Mint

I have a skittles mani for you today. I used mostly Sinful Colors polishes which are some of my favorite polishes to use and they are the only brand that I will hunt down every new polish even if I don’t care for the color.  Do you have a brand of polish where you must have them all?

Sinful Colors Dream On took 2-3 coats to be opaque. No issue with the formula besides leaving some bare spots along the tips. This is the current color version that is on the stands right now. I’ve seen pictures of six different versions which some are on my must find list.

Orly Mirrorball has no undie so it took 3 coats to become opaque. I forget to be gentle with this polish because of the clean up. Holy cow! Its an absolute PITA (pain in the ass). It would have been better if I could have washed my hands after applying top coat but I still have the polka dots drying on my ring finger. I cleaned up as best I could but there are still some glitter particles lurking around my cuticles. Overall i absolutely love this polish though.

Sinful Colors Snow Me White won the coin toss for becoming the base for my polka dot nail art. I was thinking of using Black On Black but because I knew I would need to end up using a white polish to make the dots pop I decided to just use the Snow Me White color. I’m just over half way through this polish and its getting kinda thick so I will be getting a new bottle soon. Two coats and this polish was opaque. It was almost a one coater but because of the thickness it caused some dragging. I will need to add some polish thinner before using this polish again.

Sinful Colors Envious is a fairly new release from the #PRIDE collection. This is the first collection where I feel like I must own a backup to every color. Why? You ask. I am a failure at water-marbling. I have tried several times with all different techniques and nothing has worked before. I made a final attempt and was able to get a successful water-marble thanks to these polishes. This polish could have been a one coat wonder but I used two coats to make sure I had full coverage.
