SinfulColors Faceted

SinfulColors Faceted

I posted a picture of Faceted in the bottle on Facebook and described it as fun in a bottle. Question is, does that translate to the nail? Heck yes it does!

Generally I’m not a glitter girl. Sure, I love a good glitter manicure every once in a while, but it’s definitely not my thing. So I was surprised when I spotted the SinfulColors Holiday Shimmers display and immediately reached for Faceted. It just looked so interesting and unique! I ended up picking up Faceted as well as Winter Wonder from the display.

Faceted looks like a complicated mix of glitters but it’s actually not. There are 2 different types of glitter suspended in a clear base. One glitter is a small round(ish) purple glitter and the other is an iridescent bar glitter. The bar glitter is the more sparse of the two which I appreciate because too much bar glitter can make your manicure look…hairy (for lack of a better word…).

This is obviously not a glitter that can be worn on its own. I used two coats of Faceted in my swatches so that a base color wouldn’t take away from the glitter. Below the jump is the polish on just a white piece of paper as well as a macro shot.

I haven’t decided on the best base color for this polish yet. I’m thinking maybe black or navy? Suggestions? Either way, I can’t wait to try it!

    LOL at making your manicure hairy. Pretty! Cannot wait for you to revisit it with a purple or black polish.

      Haha, I didn’t know how else to describe it!

    Like that this is sheer and you can see the under color – I am not into the heavy glitters at all anymore.

      I’ve definitely been more attracted to the sheer glitters as of late as well. They allow for so much more versatility!

    I just bought that! When I saw you posted a pic of it I instantly went out to find it. So pretty! I think it would look great over a gray or even a lavender.

      Ohhh… lavender is a great idea! That didn’t even cross my mind.

    Pretty! And because you posted this and I like it, I had to check. They are 99 cents this week at Walgreens. Looks like I will be there tomorrow

      If you see this display at a Walgreens please let me know. So far they’ve only been spotted at Rite Aid!

What do you think?
