SPECKLED ROBIN EGGS
Sinful Colors Cinderella
I know it’s not Easter yet, but these nails remind me of Easter/robin eggs, haha.
There has been so much talk about Sinful Colors’ Cinderella lately on many nail blogs and I had to try it out myself. It was difficult to find, but I managed to snag one at a local Walgreens last weekend. The name Cinderella suits this color perfectly - it definitely matches Cinderella’s dress! It is a beautiful baby blue with a fun pink shimmer. Be warned though, this color is very sheer and it took five coats before reaching full opacity.
Oh, what? And as if five coats weren’t enough, I decided to layer on two more coats of Julep’s Portia for that speckled-look. Drying time? Disastrous, but definitely worth it! I didn’t touch a thing for a good hour. It would have taken even longer, but thank goodness I had a can of DeMert Nail Enamel Dryer. It definitely cuts the drying time by more than a half. If you’re ever in a rush to use your hands right after completing a fresh manicure, don’t risk denting or smudging your newly-polished nails. I always keep a can for emergencies!
Portia is a beautiful glitter polish in a sheer, sky blue base. It came in my March box along with other goodies from the Julep Maven program. You can get your first box for $0.01 with the coupon code PENNY. Click here to join the Maven program!
