I was very excited when I found the new display for Sinful Color’s, Sinful Shine, ‘With Gel Tech’ as it states on the bottle. The other differences are in price, and the tops, these new polishes cost $2.99 and have shiny silver caps. I picked out one called Pragmatic. A lovely lilac color that I really enjoyed wearing for the five days I wore it.
I used my favorite combination of Sally’s Beauty Secrets Moisturizing Base Coat, Instant Artificials, two coats of polish, then one layer of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat. The one bad thing I simply have to mention is that even up to the point where I was removing it to do my next manicure on day five I was able to push a nail into the right thumb and make a mark in the polish. Not good. So I think it might have to do with using the Instant Artificials with it, so I plan on doing a second trial without it. I’ll update you all when I’ve done that in the near future.
Another thing I want to mention it is smells a little different than regular Sinful Colors polishes do. Hard to pinpoint, but it’s slightly less pungent. On the first coat it was somewhat streaky, and the second coat did even it out, but even this might have been due to the use of Instant Artificials. I am probably going to get one more of this line of polishes, and will try it without the Instant Artificials, and test run it to see if it is possible to dent it after 24 hours of time to set. So that’s what I bring you today, I hope you enjoyed seeing Pragmatic and hearing my thoughts on using it. Thank you for coming by my blog and I wish you happy polishing.
