I picked up a couple of Sinful Colors at my local Rite Aid just recently and couldn’t wait to try them. The colors are gorgeous. Unfortunately, my camera did not do a good job capturing the colors accurately. So, the following pictures are color-corrected via my photo editing software program. The results are closer, but still not entirely accurate. However, I hope that between the picture and my description, you’ll get the idea.
First up is Sinful Colors Dream On.
Dream On is a magenta creme. My camera made this look like a regular pink. I color-corrected it to the above, but it truly has more berry in it than I could coax out of my software. Gorgeous saturated color. The formula is good, although slightly runny. This is three coats. It dries to a semi-matte finish, but I’m showing it with a shiny topcoat (Seche Vite).
Next is Sinful Colors Let’s Talk.
Let’s Talk is a bright royal purple with a slight lavender shimmer. This photographed blue. Yesterday’s post was a nail design over this mani. I did not color-correct that picture. You can see how it looks blue. There really is no blue in this polish IRL. I tried to color-correct the photo as best I could. Unfortunately the picture looks a little pixellated, especially where the light is reflecting off the bottle and nails. Even so, the color is much more accurate than in the original picture. Formula-wise, it is thicker than Dream On. This is three coats.
I am looking into constructing a light box. I can’t afford a new camera, so I have to figure out how to be more accurate with the equipment I’ve got or can make. I’ve found a few tutorials on how to make a light box and so that’s on my agenda next week. I hope it will make a positive difference!
