Sinful Colors Winterberry

Another Thanksgiving post!
________


Oh how I craved this.  And I must say, it didn't let me down.


Winterberry was difficult to find in my area.  Apparently, it's only being sold at Rite Aids and the displays have like 2 or 3 polishes apiece.  Ridiculous, in my opinion.  So when I saw this, I scooped it up, along with the other new seasonal Sinful Colors polish, Slate.


I have always really liked the SC application.  The formula is perfect for me: a bit on the thicker side but not annoyingly so.  The shimmer is stunning, despite the fact that this rocks a slightly frosty finish.  My favorite part about this is the color!  I guess you could say this is a mauve, but I'm totally going with grurple, or grey purple.  Two of my favorite colors for polishes in one!  How lucky can a girl get?







Look at the finish on this baby!  There's even a hint of blue if you look at the macro shot.  Love.  


I have to say that when I first put this on, I expected fireworks to go off in the background.  Alas, they did not.  However, the longer I wore this, the more I fell in love.  I think that while 2 coats is enough for opacity, I should have done a third to make this a tad bit darker.  Then I probably would've heard fireworks.


For those of you who love a dupe, this is apparently a great substitute for Zoya Nimue or Duri Grape Swirl.  For more dupes of your favorite polishes, check out my Dupe Alerts page!

  1. I do not own this, and I really like this color. Too bad there are no Rite Aids where I live. You can beat the prize of Sinful Color Polishes either. 
    Happy Thanksgiving once again! :)
