Double Glitter French: CQ Silver Violet + Sinful Colors Frenzy

Hello all you lovely people out there.  Don't forget to enter my giveaway which ends on October 15th! Click here or on the sidebar for more details. =)

The other day I went on a little nail polish hunting adventure and stopped by several stores in my area to see if there were any hidden treasures I had yet to discover. Sure enough, I found several brands that were unknown to me until that very trip. Today, I am featuring a brand called CQ that was found at my local Rite Aid drugstore. The base color I used is called Silver Violet (how original lol) and my glitter accent was actually done with Sinful Colors Frenzy (which I have already reviewed in a previous post here).  The double French stripe that I did is actually like the design I featured in this post but with glitter instead of just regular nail polish colors. These little glitter details are great when you don't want to have a full on glitter mani but still like some pop and sparkle on your tips!


I'm a sucker for pretty purples







Left: indoors, Middle: shade, Right: sunlight




Silver Violet is a lavender creme with tiny silver and iridescent purple shimmer specks. If you look closely enough, there are even small bits of silver flakes that show up when the light hits it juuuuust right. Of course, this is me being super duper observant but hey, it's the little details right? =D Sinful Colors Frenzy is polish that is packed with tons of blue and purple glitter that's perfect for blinging up any mani. I think with the flash in these photos, I can't help but feel that I have slight lobster hand syndrome lol. But maybe that's just me being paranoid!...

So my nails have gotten pretty long lately. I think this is the longest it's been in a while and I am very tempted to chop all that length off! Still contemplating whether I should nubbinized them or try a different shape. I have done squoval and square. Wondering if oval or even stiletto nails would work? Ooooh, the possibilities. I'm probably just gonna leave them like the lazy bum that I am until they get on my nerves lol. Gotta be careful they don't get too long and break though! Anyway, I hope you all had a fabulous Labor Day weekend... welcome back to the regular week! =D

I dont know why I tought that CQ was a brand from outside US.
I like Sinful Colors: there is a lot of nice colors.

Jello Kitty said...

@Nadia - Yeah, I didn't know either! I saw some folks online with CQ polish on and was pretty surprised to see it at Rite Aid. And yes, I must agree, Sinful Colors has some really pretty colors =).
