Sinful Colors: Show Me The Way

Happy Superbowl Sunday!!!

I could've done a football mani but since none of my teams made it to the game I'm gonna go with a green polish today.  (However, I do have a mini crush on the Steeler's coach  so I'm rooting for them.)


1 coat of OPI Basecoat for Natural Nails, 3 coats of Show Me the Way, 1 coat of Seche Vite


Show Me The Way is a yellow-toned green with tiny blue flecks. On the nail the polish has a subtle blue sparkle. I've heard this color described as Mossy Green but when I see it I think it looks like a peridot gemstone.  Since I'm an August baby I have a soft spot for peridot.
Not my usual, but Nice!!! (Dr. Horrible fans will get that joke)

The formula on this was good.  It took three coats to get it completely covered  but then Sinful Colors polishes usually need three coats.  For under two dollars I can deal with the opacity issues.

In this pic you can see the blue flecks floating in the bottle. (click for the full size picture)
 I know it looks like I have tipwear in the above pic but it's not the polish it's actually shrinkage from using the fastdry topcoat.


Here's the polish indoors:


Look how pretty this shade looks with my peridot ring!

My verdict:  I love the color but it is a little bright for me. It's a great shade to wear when you want a splash of color.
Sinful Colors polishes are Big 3 free and are available at most drugstores and online at www.sinfulcolors.com.  They retail for $1.99.

Till next time
