Sinful Colors Secret Admirer (Challenge Day 27: A Polish that is Sexy)

I guess I personally would assume that a "sexy" polish would probably be a deep red or something vampy.  But for some reason, I was drawn to this polish when trying to fulfill today's challenge.  I always love black on my nails and feel all French spy when I wear it (I don't know why so it's best not to ask).  When black polish came back into style around 2007 during my senior year of college, I ran to the closest drugstore and rummaged for whatever black I could find.  At that time, the only brand producing black was a now discontinued Rimmel that I hated because it chipped really quickly.  

Fast forward four years-ish, and black is everywhere in every permutation possible.  Black isn't particularly marketed as sexy but more as on trend color.  But being fair skinned, I still think a rich black creme with some sort of shimmer is a super hot look (see my love affair with Milani Garnet Gems for proof).  Sinful Colors Secret Admirer is a beautiful example of my perfect black.

A lot of brands have created dupes for this, or maybe this is a dupe for something else, but I really love this $2 polish and feel great wearing it.  The silver micro glitter reminds me of stars in the sky and it just makes this black glow.  I don't know if that's sexy or not, but I really love this on me.

Application was lovely in two coats and creates quite a shiny creme; for some reason, the flash pictures make this polish look almost matte or similar to the OPI suedes, which it most certainly isn't.  This is one of those polishes that I really should wear more but for some reason don't.  

What do you ladies think is a sexy polish?  Is black totally off the mark for you guys?


  1. I have this and I love it. Every ones definition of sexy is different, I totally see this being sexy though.

  2. i can definitely see this as a sexy polish. i think mine would be NYX dorothy [or its other dupes]

  3. I'm you guys approve :)

    @ Nory, I've already bought, wrapped, and packaged your swap nail mail. I plan on sending it out tomorrow (I know we said the 16th, but I got super excited to start right away). I can't wait for you to get it!

  4. Aww LOL! I have to get yours ready sooner then! :)

  5. I have this polish, too, and I love it! Whenever I want to wear a 'black' type polish, I find myself reaching for this one.
