You Light Up My Life

Lights Off and On Collage

Or maybe just my nails, although who am I kidding, nail polish with colour co-ordinated LEDs in the caps is pretty awesome.

Also awesome?  The ultra bracing, highly noxious scent of this polish, Cinapro’s Nail Sugar in Sweet Tooth, has dissipated significantly since the last – and first – time I used it.  Truly, it was just this side of unusable, and overwhelmingly powerful.  Glad to see it has straightened itself up a lot.

Here I’ve shown three and a bit coats of Sweet Tooth straight up.  I’ve seen other bloggers layer it over dark creme polishes, complaining of visible nail lines if used au naturel, but I’ve never had that problem – Sweet Tooth is opaque in three hardly-lumpy coats, plus just a bit of touch-up to fill in any un-glittered bits.

Cinapro has a number of different light-up polishes in their Nail Sugar line, although I think Sweet Tooth is the best of the lot, with its mix of blue hex glitter and iridescent, purple-tinged base.  Very pretty, and two years on from its purchase, still lighting up my life. 🙂

(Pretty) Smelly

Sugar Rush BottleThis polish, Cinapro’s Nail Sugar in Sweet Tooth, is 80 kinds of shimmery, glittery holo goodness (it reminds me of Fraggle felt, which makes no sense, as I don’t believe there was a blue spotted Fraggle) but holy cats, does it stink. Nail polish is nose hair-singeingly smelly under the best of circumstances, but this one is in a class all its own (so much so, if naming it were up to me, I’d call it Toxic Tanzanite.) So while it may make a beautiful, unique addition to your stash (there’s an LED light in the cap!) you may wish to exercise a bit of caution if you’re particularly scent sensitive. There’s a wealth of fun colours, glitters and textures in the Nail Sugar line, and I snagged my light-em-up bottle at Sally Beauty Supply.Sugar Rush Bottle LightSugar Rush
