GoGo Medal

 I have found that for the most part, Sinful Colors polishes have a great formula. They go on smooth and generally only require two coats for full coverage.

For todays mani, I used Sinful Colors 'GoGo Girl' and 'Gold Medal'. These colors are beautiful on their own, but look great together!

First up, I used GoGo Girl as a base on all of my nails. I did two regular coats with a top coat. This polish definitely has a great formula! It went on extremely smooth. The first coat dried in just a few minutes. The second coat took about 5 minutes. Then I added the top coat. Without the top coat it dried in a satin-like finish. The top coat then made it very glossy. This will likely be my "go to" red for awhile!


Next, I did some simple nail art using Gold Medal. I am really in love with this color. It really does mimic the finish and color of a gold medal. As much as I adore this color though, I have to say that it is a tad thick. I felt like I had to be careful not to have too much polish on my brush or it starts to feel globby.

The finished manicure! To create this I did not use any special nail tools. I used items around the house that almost everyone has. For the polka dots I used the tip of a large paperclip. You have to be very steady otherwise your dots may come out a little messy. (Mine are still far from perfect, but with practice, they are getting better)

For the stripes I actually cut scotch It is definitely a lot easier to use nail art tape, but I made due with what I had. After you have your tape in the pattern you want, just paint on the accent color. Be sure to immediately remove the tape. Do not let the polish dry. If you do the polish will likely pull off with the tape.

Give your accent nails a few minutes to dry before applying your topcoat. Otherwise you run the risk of smearing it. So far I really like this Sally Hansen "Dries Instantly". There are quite a few indie brands I have heard wonderful things about, so I will be trying those out in the future.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
