Winter is coming! The one good thing about Pune is the weather. If you’re someone who moves from Mumbai to Pune, it’s the first thing you appreciate. I like that I can actually wear scarves and fluffy sweaters! Moving on the same theme is this next nail polish from Sinful Colors, aptly named Winter Wonder.
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Winter Wonder is a really nice holiday shimmer polish. It’s a dark steel gray, almost dark blue base with a ton of blue, yellow, green and red shimmer. The shimmer highlighted depends on the lightning though I predominantly see the blue and yellow side which looks really nice. It’s a dead on dupe for Zoya Fei Fei and OPI On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Dupe comparisons here and here.
From my own collection I managed to fish out two polishes that are similar. Butter London No More Waity Kaity is quite different; a creme grey base with lilac shimmer. Lumene Trouble Maker on the other hand is similar except that the base is charcoal grey, not leaning on blue. The mix of blue and yellow shimmers is pretty similar though.
It’s very densely packed shimmer which is opaque in 2-3 coats. That also makes it easier to remove although you do end up with shimmer all over your fingers. The thin coats dry quickly and overall the formula works very well in getting that opaque shimmer polish look. It’s not too glossy but there is a lot of shine. Will probably look better with a topcoat.
This also lasted well for around a week with just minor tipwear. In case you haven’t heard of the brand before, Sinful Colors is a very very inexpensive brand in the USA (usually priced at $.199) that makes excellent quality nail polishes. It used to be available on CherryCulture for a while but you can generally find it on eBay. They are also 3-free, meaning they are formulated without formaldehyde, toluene and DBP which makes it very “too good to be true”.
The packaging is very sturdy, comparable to China Glaze or OPI with a medium sized brush. You get 15ml of product for $1.99 ~ Rs. 120!
