Sinful Courtney Orange

Apparently I can't bump off polishes off my untried list if I've only used them for a franken, because in my head this was a light orange with gold shimmer. I even recommended it as such in passing to Kimberly from but thought I'd check with a quick swatch... DERP.  As you can see, red-orange, vividly so. Not exactly neon but still so bright it made my skin look almost grey in real life. Pointer and ring are two coats, middle and pinkie are three. As you can see, there's barely any VNL even with two coats.

Okay, see the gold glitter shining in the bottle? That's what I thought the polish looked like when I bought it. DERP.

 Sunlight pushes this closer to what I thought it was.

This polish is eye-searingly out of my comfort zone, but at the same time it's such an awesome color! Thank you, Kimberly, for piquing my interest in this and helping me discover an amazing and cheap gem in my stash!

I'll have to bust this out again for Halloween.


  1. Ooh, that's gorgeous! I always put this down when I see it. Might have to rethink that :)

  2. Yep, gotta get 'em on the nail to be 100% sure what they're really like, especially with shimmers. :)

  3. ABOP: You shooouuuld. I bet you would rock this color!

    KarenD: Yeah, grar! I suppose I should be happy I have so many untrieds now.
