Partying at the Palace

I've heard some people call the new Confetti line CVS's version of Sinful. Overall Confetti has more "safe" colors and cremes than Sinful, but one of the Confettis I got was a glitter, Party Palace Blue. I thought it looked a lot like Sinful Hottie.

I layered them over Essie Lapis of Luxury (3 coats) and Essie Mesmerize (2 coats) and they sure did look alike. The biggest difference I noticed was the glitter in Hottie was denser; I needed two coats of Party Palace Blue to match one coat of Hottie.

I definitely don't need both of these. I like the Confetti bottle shape better, but since the Sinful covers better, I think that gives it the edge.

  1. Nice to see comparisons. Looks like these two will need to be used as layering, regardless of which one gets.

    Good choices of color to lay down first too.

  3. I agree...I think the Sinful bottles are ugly. Walgreens is only 10 minutes away from me and CVS is an hour so no Confetti polishes for me.

  4. Would they be blue at all on a white or natural shade? I love seeing the pretty glitter colors but they don't always show those colors.

  6. man, i'm glad i didn't pick up that Confetti. SC bottle's are not all that but they have some great colors.

    thanks for the comparison! my store lighting must be off because the confetti looks brighter in CVS

  7. I think I might just stick with Sinful Colors unless CVS is having a good sale ;)

  8. I have nothing constructive to say except, "I love the Sinful Colors version."

  9. Thanks for the comments, ladies!

    Freshie, inspired by your question I swatched the Sinful by itself and added a picture showing what 1 through 4 coats looks like on bare nails.

    AggiePigeon, yes, their similarity bothers me too; the Confetti shape is unique in my stash, so it's too bad I don't like the polish as well as other brands.

    Enamel Girl, I also think the Confetti may look brighter because it's not as dense in color/glitter as the Sinful.

  10. I wondered about a comparison of these when I swatched Party Palace Blue on my blog. Thanks for doing one...I'd have had to go out and buy a bottle of SC Hottie again as I'd shipped mine overseas. Not that they're expensive and that's whats so fabulous about these lacquers is the great price for a good product. :)
