Old Skool Sinful Colors Haul'in & a sponge mani fail

 ..... sponge mani

okay, its not really a fail... I miss my looooong nails and did this look for fun. I used a coat of Naturistic's Super Chrome Amber Chrome as a base, then sponged on LA Colors Topaz and LA Colors Copper.....  Not my best effort but good enough for the day.

Stuff I used for this look

 I stopped in my favorite bargain store in town and found these old Sinful Colors.... With the exception of the the weird frosty green below Mean Green, these are all beautiful, wearable and lovely polish's. Some have conflicting labels.....  LOL at Daisy the Pig in the second set ({ wrong label  & super funny name })

How long ago did Sinful Colors Change their bottle design. Some of the ones I have seen on the internet are very, very nice.

All 2 coats with 1 coat of TC. The grey with the blue iridescence called NYC is the standout, I think, along with the HOT bright pink, Passion Fruit

 L-R, Old Gold, Whats That!, Maghony Flame ( lol ), Green Bean, Passion Fruit

L-R Fuchsia Purple, Fiji/Fuchsia's Touch,  Sharon's Heart, Sharon's Heart/ Daisy The Pig, NYC

 Many of the shimmers in this groupare intense, a little pricey for the olden days IMO. The two pinks with golden shimmers and the same name... are not the same. one is much more golden. Anyone else int he world have a whole bunch of these in a shoebox under her bed? I'm excited to do mani's with these.

Have a great weekend, I'll keep fighting with blogger to get posts up for, not sure why they keep changing things.

That reminds me of the ombre trend that bag designers were doing.

This is a very pretty manicure. Not a fail at all. I've never seen those type of bottles for Sinful Colors. They must really be old. I do have a few of them but in the newer style bottle.

I used to have an old bottle of Sinful called Daisy the Pig. It was a blue green shimmer though... really pretty. I'm so angry I got rid of it back before I knew any better.
