Nail Diary #287

August 6, 2014

Yay halfway to the weekend!!

So I am madly in love with my nails right now.  They are covered with my all time favorite color, teal.  A few weeks ago during some nail polish shopping therapy at Walgreens I found Sinful Colors had a Silk and Satin nail polish collection.  I think I bought nearly all of them, I know I am obsessed.  So these colors go on matte and then they sold a clear top coat that you could use to make them satin.

I just had to play with the Real Teal first.  Real Teal is just like the name says.  The formula was very interesting, it is a jelly silk (matte) polish.  Jelly meaning thin and see through, but it builds well.  It did take four coats to get rid of VNL; VNL= visible nail line.  After the third coat I added Seche Vite fast dry top coat to get it to dry faster in between coats and my jaw dropped.  Real Teal is absolutely gorg as a satin.  It glistens and in the sunlight it is divine.  So I knew after my fourth coat this baby was going to be a satin instead of a silk.

Before I decided to make the Real Teal a satin I added a glitter ring finger accent nail using Finger Paints Art you Wondering?  Art you Wondering? is teal and green glitter in clear jelly base so this one definitely needs underwear.  It went over Real Teal perfectly.  After I made Real Teal a satin it really doesn’t stick out as an accent nail so much, oh well.  It still adds interest.

I love this combo a lot, teal makes me smile.

Have a great rest of the week!!  Hope the sun is shining for you 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Stay tuned for the next installment of the diary of a nail polish addict.

  1. I am a sucker for Sinfuls. At just $2 a pop I cannot say no. And the quality is phenomenal.

    Btw, I have been thinking about you and I hope you’re doing well. It’ll take time, but please remember to look after yourself and practice self care. ❤


    • So true I have been wearing this since Sunday and no chips just minor tip wear, amazing for $2 polish. Thanks for thinking of me sweets. I wish it all was a bad dream! I know from losing my mom last year that time def makes the heartache fade but it never truly goes away. But polishing my nails and hearing from you ladies is a great distraction tho!!
