Another thing: you may have noticed that I do not like using typical nail polish language. I will not use the words "dupe" or "stash", and don't even get me started on "lemming". Another term I really dislike is "untried". I mean...who came up with all this stuff anyway? Who invented the nail polish language?? Anyway, as I always call my terms by a different name, I am officially calling my unworn polishes my never-worns. I think it lends a sort of elegance to my unhealthy habit. :D
Today's post features two polishes by Sinful Colors that were both *meant* to be a Blogger Made Me Do It post blaming the ever-charming Liesl Loves Pretty Things. So I guess you're gettin' a two-fer! First off, let's hear it for Graine de Poivre.
Graine de Poivre (translation: peppercorn) is a mushroom taupe creme, introduced fall of 2013. I fell so in love with this when Liesl featured it that I went looking for it right away. I have some close-but-no-cigar colors like it. Graine de Poivre turns really grey on me, but I still like it. The formula is very good on this one.
I did a little comparison shot of some taupe-ish and greige colors, just so you can see about where Graine de Poivre falls in the spectrum. Oh, and I have no idea why Berlin There, Done That looks matte...:/
The other Sinful Colors offering that I just HAD to have after Liesl's feature is Hot Chili, a sort of "texture lite" introduced around May of 2014.
See how pretty this is? Would you believe me if I told you it's even prettier in person?? Hot Chili is a barely pink-tinged red metallic with textured bits of something and small holographic glitter. Yeah, this is nice. I was surprised that the formula was super runny. My results after one coat were disastrous, but two coats seemed to help quite a lot.
Well now. I feel better already. Two down from my long list of never-worns and many, many more to go. At $1.99 each, these two SC polishes don't induce *that* much of a guilt trip. I blame Liesl anyway. :P
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3
