NOTD: Sinful #214 Fiji

Don't forget the Fauxnad giveaway!

Beautiful color, terrible (no... TERRIBLE) application. While I love this color (it is a little more purple than the pictures show) I was still very tempted to throw it against the wall. The formula is just awful. It is too thick and too thin at the same time, it drags, it pools around the cuticles (a problem I very rarely encounter), and it dries with snail speed. I'm not 100% happy with the final result, but I didn't feel like redoing it. It's going to take some time before I wear this again. I need to forgot how much it sucked!

It's beautiful, but you're right, you can't love a polish properly until it ticks all the boxes :)

I love this color, but I Agree that it's a PITA to apply! This has been one of my favorite purples for years, plus I think the name is cute :)

Really stunning color!
Hmmm; I'm getting second thoughts on that Cherry Culture order that I'm compiling. I have 15 Sinful polishes in the cart, but if they are so bad application wise, I'm not so sure I wanna order them anymore :(
Scrangie had the same thing to say about this brand in a recent post; but since the colors look sooo beautiful, I'm not sure I'll be able to resist getting a few :)

Lina-Elvira: I agree, and I so wish I could love this!

Phyrra: omg, I know. The color is so gorgeous. Why can't they make it apply smoothly :(

Vodca: Where are you from? You might be able to order from They ship internationally.

Vanessa: No need for second thoughts. Some of the apply quite well, and the colors are gorgeous. Most of the time, they are worth it (and dirt cheap lol).

Amanda:Hmmm, I can see this being one of your favorites. The color is so you :)
