Sinful Colors Pinky Glitter Swatch

I can't resist a pretty glitter. I really can't! Who can? Sometimes I'm disappointed and other times I'm stunned. Can you guess which I am this time?

Sinful Colors Pinky Glitter is stunning in the bottle, but there really aren't many polishes that live up to what you see in the bottle once on your nails. They almost always leave you slightly disappointed. But not this one! I am amazed at how well it photographs as well.

Pinky Glitter looks like a very bright hot pink in the bottle. However, it goes on a very pretty light pink if it's not layered. I used two slightly thick coats — only thick because the polish had gone slightly gloppy. I've had this in my 'to swatch' pile for a few months so I did expect it; Sinful Colors doesn't seem to hold up long — but what can you expect from a polish on the lowest end of the price scale? Two thick coats got me full coverage and the lovely color you see above.

Pinky Glitter is filled with small holographic glitter and a fine, sandy holographic shimmer. These holographic glitters are those perfect holo glitters that flash rainbow with the slightest movement. Perfect! It has such a beautifully soft and sandy texture that I left it without any top coat.

Color: A bright hot pink in the bottle but over naked nails it is a fairly light, yet very pretty, pink. It is filled with small and fine, sandy holographic glitter.
Finish: Glitter suspended in a pink base that dries to a really nice textured finish.
Application: It actually went on pretty well for being thick. There was none of the patchiness that some glitters have where the glitter clings to the brush more than your nail. Overall, the application was pretty much perfect.
Coats to Opaque: 2
My Rating: 4.9 — The only negative I have is the thickness. Sinful Colors does turns thick quickly, and it was something I expected. You can't expect much more for the price. Other than that the color is perfect, the glitter is so gorgeous, and it works great on its own and as a layering glitter.

  3. This is actually really gorgeous. I have passed it up before because I thought it would never look even close to what it does in the bottle. I am definitely going to pick it up next time, though!

    1. I don't own the Spoiled polish but looking at swatches it is really close! I Gotta Confection To Make looks much more sheer though and the glitter slightly less rainbow perfection.

    Try it over another pink, and under a really nice top coat!
