I've seen a few bloggers recently post about new brand of nail polish displayed called "Confetti". I've heard it dubbed CVS's version of Sinful Colors. They have a wide selection of colors that are $2 a piece. I bought 3 and I'm going to give you my review on the brand.
Here is the display
-Wide selection of colors
-Limited selection in finishes
-Formula was a bit thick
-Some brushes were misshapen
-Very basic colors
Overall, I'm on the fence leaning towards not liking this brand. There are things I really like about it. If you are just starting up a nail collection I think this brand would be good. You can find many popular colors and get your basics covered for a cheaper price. I also found this brand helpful for me even though I have a large collection. It would be a great brand to go to fill in holes in your collection. If you're missing certain colors or you want to dabble in a new color you're never tried to before this brand would work out well. I saw a shade called "Moonstruck" that looked just like $OPI Metro Chic. It is great in that sense being able to substitute pricey colors for lesser expensive ones.
The things I didn't like is when I saw this display at a price of $2 a bottle I was so excited. At $2 I knew I could fill up my basket without feeling guilty. However, these colors didn't "wow" me. I didn't really see anything I hadn't seen before. I found the colors very basic except for a handful. I'd say probably 80% of the brand were cremes. There were hardly any shimmers or glitters. The application of the ones I bought were inconsistent, and I as left with bald spots after 3-4 coats. Also, some of the formulas were quite thick and the brushes on 2 of them were misshaped and frayed out.
If I were to compare Confetti to Sinful Colors. Sinful Colors would take the cake. They have a more interesting and unique selection. Their formula is also much better. I wouldn't completely dismiss Confetti though. They did have some colors Sinful didn't. I would probably shop the brand if I was looking for some specific I didn't want to spend more money on.
Here are the colors I got...
Dreamdate is a sheer shimmery baby pink with iridescent gold I'd almost say glass fleck? I'm not sure how to describe the finish. I really love this one. I think it would be better off for layering, but it's a nice soft shade with some extra sparkle!
Belle of the Ball
First of all I apologize. Before I took the photo it looked like I had full coverage on the nail, but I guess not. This was 3 coats. Belle of the Ball is a light purple creme. Like I said before, this is a color I don't have in my collection, so I saw this as a good polish to add since I wasn't really lemming a similar color from a specific brand. The application and formula of this was pretty awful. My brush was frayed, the formula was thick, and I was left with bald spots. That being said I like the color and I'm hoping some nail polish thinner will help it out!
Blue Bombshell is a VERY sheer pearl-like shimmer blue. This is a very pretty color. This was the only polish of the 3 I bought that the brush wasn't messed up and the formula seemed normal. I like this color, but be prepared to layer on some coats.
That's all I got. The more I write the more I realized how I am more displeased with this brand than pleased. These are just my opinions though and I encourage you to try them out for yourself. I'm not going to cut them off completely, but I know what to expect in the future!
Have you tried this brand? What are your thoughts?
Have a great Thursday!
Update:I've been seeing a lot of reviews of this brand today. Many people seem to like it and are not having formula/application/brush troubles like me. I just want to throw out there it is very possible that 2 of the 3 bottles I got were just bad bottles! I definitely do not want to deter anyone from purchasing or trying this brand because I think it does have some positive points. I just wanted to throw that out there. :)
