Sinful Colors: Crystal Crushes Polish

Are you reading other nail/beauty blogs where the authors say they are not tired of textured nail polishes yet? I’m reading that a lot and I’m in those ranks. I still enjoy textures. This is one that I picked up prior to Christmas and I like it a LOT…

DSCF0060 DSCF0056‘Blue Persuasion’ is tricky though. If you were someone who didn’t read nail/beauty blogs (GASP!!! Say there are no such people!!), you might not be prepared for the awesome surprise awaiting you.

Look at the polish in the bottle. This is a collection called Crystal Crushes from Sinful Colors. Even though it is pretty…

DSCF0063First, I want to talk about the vibrant blue shade. It’s a perfect blue. Right smack-dab in the middle blue tone. My husband is blue/green color blind and I feel sorry for him because this color eludes his eyes. Therefore, those of us not color-blind need to thank our lucky, twinkly blue stars we get to enjoy seeing this fabulous color.

Now, for the texture…

DSCF0053This ‘texture of textures’ by Sinful Colors came from Walgreens. There were other shades within this collection just as pretty; I just limited myself to one. However, after revisiting these photos, I think I may allow myself to purchase other shades if I find any on clearance.

Here’s the deal: If you love textures, you are going to love this one. I only wore it for one day so I can’t say how the wear is. (My own manicure look was awful since my nails were all broken to the quick and the cuticles looked like sticker bushes.) I put a top coat on a pinky and it ate it up. It didn’t soften the texture or make it shiny either. And, when I removed the polish, I got blue all over. It was messy. I used Zoya’s Remove+ which isn’t the strongest polish remover. I had to give my hands and cuticles several washings and STILL had to wait for some of the blue stain to fade from my super dry cuticles.
