Yesterday Marcia gave you a great review of her five shades from the SinfulColors A Class Act Collection (read it HERE!), and today I have my five shades. I know Marcia thinks she came out as the head of the class with her choices, but I am pretty sure mine are even better.
My five shades include Energetic Red, Fig, Purple Diamond, Ice Sparkle, and Pink Break.
Energetic Red is a bold cream red that is a great back to school color. This is actually re-promote, but it’s a shade worth having back again.
Fig is a really gorgeous deep plum. It’s described as a ‘fruity dark purple fig red’. I’m not sure if you can tell in the pics, but this has a very slight shimmer that gives it some depth. I already know I will be sporting this shade while clutching some delicious hot chocolate during the winter holidays.
Purple Diamond is actually my favorite. While this light lavender with silver shimmer seems more like a spring color, it’s so darn pretty I know I will wear it year round. It looks best with three thin coats…so girly and pretty!
Ice Dream is a clear topcoat with blue and silver shimmer. For the photo I applied two coats so you can see what it looks like on its own. One coat is all you need over a cream shade for lots of sparkle and fun.
Pink Break, a Walgreen’s exclusive color. turned out to be a mystery for me. I had my nail tech put this demi-matte on me, and before I remembered to tell him not to put on a topcoat it was already done. With a topcoat it’s a pretty light pink cream. Then I redid my nails with the polish and no topcoat…and it never went matte. The photo above is with two coats of Pink Break and no topcoat! I’m not sure what happened, but it definitely didn’t even come close to having the same finish as the demi-matte Marcia tried, Blue Sensation.
Overall, I think Marcia and I both got some real winners. At only $1.99 these polishes are a perfect way to spruce up your tips and just in time for back to school! Be sure to check them out while you are at Walgreens or Walmart getting all those other school necessities. – Lisa
