Whimsical Cinderella

Sinful Colors has really stepped it up in the last few years on their polish selection. They had the same tired selection for like ever, then suddenly they started producing new colors every so often. Cinderella is one of the new ones, a beautiful glass fleck sky blue lacquer. The shimmer is pink/orange tinted which makes the polish unique, in my collection at least. It is rather sheer but layers up nicely. This is four thin coats. It's got a slightly jelly finish so it can gum up if you layer on coats too quickly.

Next, I decided to put Revlon Whimsical on top of Cinderella. This is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Glitter In the Air. It's much cheaper and a smidge less sheer, but otherwise exactly the same. It's a pale blue milky base, small glassy blue glitter, a little bigger round metallic pink glitter, and large metallic pink and blue hex glitter. This is two coats.

Sinful Colors are found in Walgreens for $1.99 each and Revlon nail polish can be found at most large retailers and drugstores for about $4 or so.
