I don’t always manage to pick up limited edition SinfulColors polishes,
but this fall I lucked out and found a SinfulColors Halloween display at a local Rexall—during a buy-two-get-two-free nail polish promo! (Somehow they weren’t ringing up with the discount, possibly because they were new shades, but the super cool cashier was very sweet and gave me the sale price, anyway. Thanks, chica!)
One of the shades I picked up was Bite Me (2332), which in the bottle appears to be a rich red shimmer with assorted, flat-black glitter shapes, including a sprinkling of hexagons.
SinfulColors says: “This dark brick red shade has flecks of black glitter for a speck-tacular and spooky effect.”
The formula is, unfortunately, on the sheer side, so I used three coats in my swatch. It still looks a bit wishy-washy! The warm red does have a pretty glow, however. And the glitter is quite easy to spread out evenly.
I think I’ll probably wear this on Halloween next week when I take Peanut and Olive out trick-or-treating, but I’ll use two coats as a topper over an orange or a red.
I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to find this, but if you do spy it, it’s cheap enough to give it a try if you’d like a fun Halloween-y topper.
