Sinful Colors I Love You, with Golden Rose Scale Effect I love you even more!

Today (well yesterday actually!) I have decided that since my mani's of late have been light coloured and pretty, I needed some purple back on my nails.  Purple is my all time favourite colour ever, and I had Sinful Colors I Love You sat on my untried pile just begging me to giver her a go.  This is a jelly polish which is a great purple, not red based, or a dark lavender, no, just proper purple.  I love this shade, and to add to the love it also has lots of shimmery micro glitter in there too in a lighter shade of purple (I want to say dark pink).  The first coat seemed really sheer and I was a bit worried it may be one of those that take too many coats to get the colour that is in the bottle but no, it built up nicely and my pics are three coats.  The drying time was good as well, and it has a gorgeous finish that is so smooth and shiny that I didn't even bother with a top coat.




Since I did the Sinful Colors mani yesterday, I have added some flakies courtesy of Golden Rose Scale Effect polish.  These scale effects ones don't have names just numbers, and mine which I got from a dear friend in Holland is number 13.  I thought purple + scales = dragons right?  Well in my mind it does, I adore dragons, and yes of course they are real (don't try to tell me they're not I won't believe you!)  The flakes are just packed into this polish, they are suspended in a pale blue translucent base and flash from orange to green.  The effect on my nails was achieved with just one coat and I absolutely love it.  It went on perfect and although it did dry a little dull, a coat of shiny top coat sorted that out.  I am loving the shiny effect, but I will matte-ify it before it comes off because I'm betting that will look awesome too.

You can see the lovely green and orange colours here.


Wow Just look at that green, beautiful!
I hope you like my 'dragon scales' effect nails as much as I do!

That is so freaking cool. I've been obsessed with dragons since I was a toddler, and this definitely has a dragony feel to it. I'm so envious of your Golden Rose Scale Effect polish. I don't know where to get them, I'm in the US so I guess I'd have to track them down online.... Do you know of anywhere that carries them and ships to the US?

S.N. I'm glad you like dragons too, (I have a large collection of figures of them!) I'm sorry I don't know anywhere that carries them and ships to the US but if you like the flakies, NFU Oh do some AWESOME flakie polishes they might be well worth a look :) they are available easily in the US too. I hope that helps
