Sinful Colors Zest of Times

I feel like the past month I've been catching up on nail polish. I have barely purchased any nail polish this first part of the year. It hasn't been because I haven't wanted to, it's just I had not got around to it. I've probably purchased 30 bottles the past month, and I'm still not caught up on spring collections. They'll have to wait until my wallet is a little fuller though! I did pick up this newer Sinful Colors pretty in that little haul.

Zest of Times over Sinful Colors Cream Pink
Zest of Times is a sheer hot pink jelly base with a sparkling pinky-purple glass fleck shimmer.

Collection. Sinful Colors Citrus Twist Spring 2015

Color: I love the vibrancy and sparkle of Zest of Times. I think it's a great summery sparkle shade, I just wish it wasn't so sheer.

Formula: This is sheer, It is meant to be layered, but I wish it had an option of building it up easily on its own. I've seen other bloggers do it and say it takes 4 to 4+ coats. I didn't find this build up opaquely on my nail, and the more coats I added the more fussy the formula got. The formula started to get thick and drag and smudge on the nail. Not nice. That being said, this layered looks great. I can't entirely fault this polish since it is a layering one.

Price: I paid $2 for this at Walgreens.

Overall: I do like Zest of the Times for it's color, and I think it looks great layered over a base. It has excellent sparkle that isn't subtle at all. My only complaint is more of a personal one. I do wish I could wear this one on its own easily in 3 coats. I love seeing glass fleck glitter/shimmers on the market again, and this would of been nice if it could be worn by itself.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 
Happy Monday!


  1. Such a pretty shimmer and shine!

  2. That's a beautiful pairing. I love to layer polishes and didn't know for years that some polishes were meant to be layered over a base color.
