Sinful Colors Green Ocean
At 15ml this is an awesome buy for $1.99. In the bottle, this just looks like a pretty super pale green (perfect St. Patricks Day green, which is the point of this one I think) with small green glitter and larger green flakies. There are some flashes of blue running through the glitter but you don’t really notice them.
As far as formula goes, this is THICK, more like applying a gel, it’s two steps away from being that gel they put on acrylics. You either get a little bit of polish (and glitter along with it) if you wipe the brush or, if your like me and want a shit ton of glitter, you put a large glob on and smooth it out. And that’s what your doing with this one is smoothing it out, I’m talking SUPER thick. But dry time was awesome despite that so hey.
Now for the awesome part. It’s called Green Ocean and it’s the most appropriate name I could possibly ever come up with. Like PERFECT. Once this puppy dries it gets this amazing blue/green sheen.
You obviously see the green, even the green thats in the polish (which is pretty pale but I applied 5 coats of this cause yeah, I fucking like glitter). But that blue that you barely saw in the bottle really pops here! As you move your fingers around it shines blue! And there’s the ocean part!
I wore this without a base for these photos but I’ll for sure be doing some mani’s with this later. Layerlayerlayer
My camera could NOT handle the blue-green-ness of this. The photo above is without flash, the one below is with. My camera was making this way more yellow than it really is, it almost looks like theres a fungus growing on there but it’s not that yellow in real life I swear!
Those green flashes also flash blue in real life!
The only real downside to this came removal time. This was a BITCH! It would NOT come off. I soaked it and soaked it and in the end I ended up chipping it off myself. I wasn’t using 100% acetone remover, that might have helped. All I had was a base coat and top coat with this. I don’t know why this was so hard to take off. I’ll keep you posted if it’s easier later on over a base with fewer coats.
That was a big review! I don’t know how much you guys wanna read but this is how much I like to talk about shit so fuck it haha.
RECOMMEND! This was so pretty to look at, I just hated taking it off. It wasn’t such a pain that I wouldn’t recommend purchasing though.
