Sinful Colors- Cloud 9

Hi guys! Well we're halfway through another week. I hopefully yours is going well:-) I had a rough nail day today... I woke up early and decided to do my nails before I got ready for work. I don't usually do that, but I would have had time if I hadn't decided I hated it and started over like 15 minutes before walking out the door! Why would I think that would be a good idea? So I got them done, (all four coats) then put on m coat. When my hand emerged from the sleeve, a hideous sight appeared... It looked like crumpled orange Saran wrap on my nails. At this point I was stuck with it. So all day I hid my left hand from anyone I could. I wish I had got a picture so you could understand! Anyways, the first thing I did when I got home was throw a rubber glove on the still nice right hand and go to work!

This is Sinful Colors- Cloud 9. It is very sheer on it's own (which is why I took it off this morning!), but makes a great layering polish. To get this opaque, I used two coats of Sally Hansen Sunkissed as underwear. It kept the color true but without the vnl. I love the glowy gold shimmer in this. Its really a juicy color. Perfect for summer.
The first two pictures are in the lightbox, and the last two are hiding behind my curtains in the living room by the window, trying to get the last minutes of sunlight:-) The color is true in both depending on the light source.


  1. This is gorgeous!! I admire you for having the zest to do your nails before work, lol

    1. Lol, confession: I was only up cause I set the alarm to go to the gym then skipped out!

  2. Haha, I love how you said you used Sally Hansen Sun Kissed as "underwear." What an awesome way to put it.
    And I LOVE this mani. Gorgeous, bright summer color!
