Rapid Review | Sinful Colors #Be Happy

When I saw the swatches of OPI Fall 2014 Nordic Collection on The PolishAholic, one colour immediately caught my eye.  It is the NLN45 My Dogsled Is A Hybrid.  To me it seems an atypical cold season shade, but I guess it also goes with the snow, icy inspiration of the Nordics?

My cousin screamed when she saw the promotional images of My Dogsled is a Hybrid, which doesn't surprise me, because this is really another rendition of the Tiffany Blue.  I do own several shades similar to the Tiffany Blue, including China Glaze For Audrey (I may have given it away at some point? currently not in my possession).

Anyway, recently I saw this shade #982 Be Happy by Sinful Colors - the brand is now sold in Sasa locally - and the name, and the shade made me buy it.  I happened to also have other nail polishes I wanted to swatch so I throw them on altogether.

The formula of Sinful Colors can be hit-and-miss.  This cream colour, without shimmer or pearl or jelly finish, seems to go on opague and dries quickly.  It also claims to be Toluene, Formaldehyde & DBP (bad stuff for babies or pregnant women in particular?) FREE.

The brush applicator is okay, medium-thin size - I prefer wider ones - with good flexibility and applies smoothly.  It is possible to go with one even coat if you have a good hand, and I can deal with two sloppy coats.

Colour-wise, Be Happy is quite in the middle of pastel blue and pastel green.  Topshop Pool Party is more blue and slightly darker.  Barry M Mint Green and Bourjois Bleu Model are both more green - these two are near identical...


For $19.9 HKD, I find this bottle a great bargain.

Remark: I am very bad at maintaining my cuticles, and after-all, this review doesn't seem very 'rapid' at all..

Beautiful wishes,
