Colour Series ~ Purple Day Seven

Hello gentle readers.

So, the day has come. The final day of my Colour Series ~ Purple. I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who voted in my poll to let me know what you would like to see. I am enjoying running this series and I will most likely keep it up for a few more months. I have some ideas for future series. If you would like a say in my November Series, please vote in the poll at the top of my right hand column. There are two choices for November. Holographic or duochrome. Easy. Right? :D

So, to wrap up my week of purples I thought that I would go back to the beginning and feature one of the first Sinful Colors polishes I ever purchased. Please give a warm welcome to Daddy's Girl. Now, I had a few reasons for buying this polish. First, I won't lie... The name gave my heart a little hitch. Second, at the time I didn't have many purple polishes. In fact, this was one of my first purples, ever. (I had a couple of OPI purples, that was it.) And I just loved it in the bottle in the store. There was just... Something... About this polish that made me buy it.

Sinful Colors Daddy's Girl is a cool, deep purple jelly filled with dancing, scintillating shimmer that fires different colours, most notably a deep magenta that is almost red. There are duochrome-ish mini flakies, as well that show up under white light in the bottle. But not on the nail, that I could see. There is a whole lot of pretty in this one little glass bottle and all for the bargain price of a buck ninety-nine. Or even ninety-nine cents, when Walgreen's has one of their periodic mad Sinful sales. :D

I won't lie to you; this polish isn't super opaque. It is thin, a little sheer. I applied three coats and then top coat. In person, this looked nearly perfectly opaque. In my photographs, however, sheer city. Total VNL. You can clearly see just how incredibly long (for me! anyway) my nails were, in these photographs. Just remember, it doesn't look that sheer in person.

"Nuff yapping, hmmm? On to the photographs. This one doesn't photograph nearly as pretty as it is, in person. You are just going to have to trust me, here. Mmmkaaay?

 In my lightbox with my OttLight. Check out the duochrome in the bottle. Too bad it didn't translate all that well to my nails. *sigh* But that red shimmah sure does! 

 In the sun. Click it. G'head. I dare ya. :D

And my obligatory "I look thinner at this angle" pose. Don't you just get a kick out of those gals on the red carpet, turning, popping a hip and crossing their legs, all in an attempt to look thinner in photographs? To me, they just look as if they have to pee. :P

Sinful Colors Daddy's Girl is nice to work with. A tad thin, it needs close supervision or it will try to bolt on you; but it isn't a pain in the butt. It builds nicely, but at three coats, there is a little VNL in person. Extreme in photographs. If VNL bugs the snot out of you, you will need a lot of coats. If VNL is a really big objection to you, this polish, pretty as it is might not bring you joy. 

Okay. So there you have it. The final installment in Colour Series ~ Purple. I hope that you enjoyed this series as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you. Please stick around. There are some new things coming, soon. I have nail art planned, swatches of Color Club Back to Boho and Halowe'en-y goodness. 

Please don't forget to tell me what you would like to see in November by voting in my poll. The choices are Holographic or duochrome. 

Thank you all so much for stopping by, reading and commenting, I appreciate so much that you take a little time out of your busy day to sit and spend it with me. It just means that much to me. Have a great day and may your polish never bubble.

  1. This one is also one of my firsts! I will admit the VNL kills me because I hate it but I love this color over black.

    I am glad I am not the only one that thinks these red carpet stars look like they gotta go when they stand in certain poses. lol

  2. Heh heh. Isn't it funny how this is an early purple for so many of us? :D I'll have to try this over black, one day. It sounds like a pretty combo.

  4. This was an early favorite of mine too! I know it wasn't my first purple, but I remember when I got into SC polishes, this was one of the first I picked out. It's such a great polish!
