Mani Monday!

20131216-232331.jpg

Today’s Mani Monday is brought to you by Sinful Colors polish in the color “Mambo Melt”. It’s a very shiny purple, no shimmer, not metallic but it’s certainly not matte. I guess I’d call this a satin finish.

Honestly not sure where I picked this color up from. I’ve had it for awhile and never used it Bc of the finish, I generally prefer solid matte colors. However, this is what got picked out of the nail polish bin so that’s what I went with!

Quality wise, this isn’t great. The first coat was very streaky, a second coat was definitely necessary. I always use base, two coats of color, and a top coat, but something went awry this time. The second coat made the polish look thick and fully covered the nail, but when I applied the top coat, is stripped some of the color away! I tried to take a picture of this but it’s kind of hard to see…(see pic below) I definitely waited a looong time between color and top coat, so I know it was dry. I’m not sure why that happened, if it was the quality if the polish or something I did wrong..? Any thoughts please let me know!

I’m going to let this polish wear for the week and see what happens, but at this point I don’t feel a strong inclination to keep this in my polish bin especially when I have much better quality. We’ll see!

Have you ever used Sinful Colors or experienced the color stripping I experienced? Please let me know in the comments!

  1. Purple is my favourite colour so I might be a bit biased, but I love it! It reminds me of a Sally Hansen one (can’t remember the name, Purple Poison?) I’ve only tried a neon pink from SC and didn’t find the quality to be that great… For the odd occasion it’d probably be alright

    • Purple is my favorite color too – I’ll have to do some investigating on that Sally Hansen color, thanks for the tip!

      I agree, quality with SC is not amazing. I washed my hair yesterday and the color just continued to strip off even more and start chipping. I’m considering taking it off and putting on a better quality polish that will actually last the week!

      Thanks for your comment 🙂
