Rain Drops On Glass... Nail Junkie, Blue and Teal...Sinful Colors and Sally Hansen

Today I have a mani that looks like raindrops on glass. I wanted to use the Sinful Colors Nail Junkie and I was torn between using the teal or blue under it... so I used both and left one nail without any base color under it at. Not sure which I like best... I think I like the teal slightly better, but I do like all of them. 


The Middle has just Sinful Color Nail Junkie only in three coats. The ring finger has one coat of Blue Me Away and two coats of Sinful Colors Nail Junkie. The thumb, pointer and pinky fingers have one coat of The Real Teal and two coats of Sinful Colors Nail Junkie.


The Nail Junkie alone (middle finger) looks exactly like the one's with The Real Teal as a base color (thumb, pointer and pinky). The only difference I see is the middle finger has a bit of VNL.

Overall I think Sinful Colors Nail Junkie has a really cool looking effect. I will certainly be using this again. My mind is racing with all the possibilities of this polish. It's a keeper for sure.


For this manicure I applied the following:
  • Sache Clear Base Coat**
  • Middle Finger: Sinful Colors in Nail Junkie Only...3 coats
  • Ring Finger: Sinful Colors in Nail Junkie...2 coats and Sally Hansen in Blue Me Away...1 coat
  • Thumb, Pointer & Pinky Fingers: Sinful Colors in Nail Junkie...2 coats and Sally Hansen in The Real Teal...1 coat
  • Seche Vite...1 coat


**A note about the base coat...I have been using Seche Clear for the last few manis and I have had one or two entire nail's polish completely peal off some of the times I used this base coat. I have not had this happen when I was using Milani Smoothe Base Coat. Is this a coincidence? Have you guys had this experience with Seche Clear? I am not sure I want to use this any more. I will be switching back to Milani Smoothe Base Coat!

  2. I love the tropical look of the blue/turquoise colours you've chosen. The glitter in the polishes also makes a lovely addition xx

    1. I can't believe it! I knew it was that base coat because that was the only thing I changed. But I was trying to convince myself it was something else...like I didn't wash up good enough or there was some of the last manicure's polish left behind. That base coat is going in the garbage!
