Sinful Colors Zeus

I love today's polish.  I think it speaks to the fact that cheaper polish doesn't mean cheaper quality.  In fact, while the Greek Isles Collection from Sinful Colors from this spring included about seventeen hundred and one greens, Zeus completely made me want the entire set.  Which, if I got it, would've probably cost me less than one fancy schmancy polish.


Zeus is a smooth, buttery creme dusty dark blurple lavender that has a slight pink duochromic shimmer.  Unfortunately, I had a serious issue capturing that pink glow and must have taken about a million pictures trying to demonstrate that it did in fact exist.


This was my result in two coats.




I'm not sure you believe me, but I promise that pink underglow is there.  It's weak -- and even weaker in pics -- but it does in fact make this beautifully dusty purple have that extra oomph every polish lover wants.  It makes me sad that I didn't do this beauty justice.


Regardless, I still love this purple and recommend any purple lover add this to her collection.  I haven't seen the Greek Isles collection available in a few months but I suggest you ladies be on the hunt just in case.  These babies go fast.


What do you think??

  4. I love Zeus as well! Did you manage to pick up the rest? I have a couple from this collection and they're all very nice. :)

  5. I also have Greek Isles and Neptune, both of which are AMAZING too. The collection I missed out on, actually, was the Sheer Shimmers. That was basically a cleared out display at every Walgreens near me :(

  7. I hate when that happens! I'm always convinced there must be another polish blogger living near me who buys up everything I want. I don't know why I think that...haha.  I didn't get any from the Sheer Shimmers either, but they did look quite nice.  Sinful Colors has really been picking up their game this year though.  Hopefully they'll put out some more equally amazing collections. :)

  10. I wish I'd managed to find this collection. My Walgreen's only had a few from the collection and they were none of the ones I wanted. :( This is such a YOU polish! It's beautiful and I can totally see the pink glow you talked about in the last pic.
