Sinful Colors Daddy’s Girl
I spent an age this morning trying to decide what to put on my nails. No amount of rooting through my bottles of untried polishes or scanning my swatch wheels could help me choose.
Finally, I just decided to wear an old favourite. I’ve worn Sinful Colors Daddy’s Girl before, but haven’t blogged about it. I bought it last September from The Original Factory Shop, when Sinful Colors polishes weren’t readily available yet in the UK. I don’t think this polish is part of the range currently available in Boots, as it’s not listed on their website.
I needed four coats to get it this opaque, yet you can still see through the nail. My camera couldn’t capture the purple-ness of it. Whatever I tried, it made my nails look blue. I even had to take the photos without a bottle, as it was darkening the images too much. I’ve had to colour-adjust this photo to show the purple and the shimmer – so ignore the resulting red tinge to my skin!
I also tried out a new (to me) bottle of top coat: Nina Ultra Pro. It certainly dried nice and quickly, and I quite liked the oversized (truly enormous) brush. This was great for my thumb nails, which sometimes end up a bit streaky due to having to do a second dip into the top coat. However, it left some brush lines, which I didn’t like. That might just have been down to my application technique though. I added a second top coat, of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, which gave it a lovely smooth and glossy finish. I wasn’t entirely happy with the Nina Ultra Pro, but I haven’t given it enough of a chance yet to dismiss it for definite.
