Wheel L3: Glitters from Sinful, Nubar, and Other Brands

As I mentioned last year in my nail wheel philosophy and organization post, when I started this wheel swatching project of mine, I decided to do glitters by brand rather than color because so many of my glitters are multi-colored. I don't always have 20 from one brand to fill up a wheel though, so end up having multiple brands on a wheel and singletons or pairs from still other brands. It feels sort of messy, and if I had to start all over, I might try harder to sort glitters by color or at least color family. But no way no how am I starting over in the foreseeable future. I'm more than 2/3 done and must push ahead to the finish.

  2. Those ice cream cones are adorable! Almost as cute as pumpkins and snowmen. I wonder do you paint the wheels each week, or prepare all of them in advance?

    1. Viktorija, I usually paint the wheels well in advance; I have quite a backlog of photos for future posts. I tend to do a bunch a one time when I have the house to myself for an evening--I can spread out my stuff on the kitchen table and watch some tv while I paint, usually something Mr. K is not into, like reality TV or DVDs with some eye candy in the form of someone like Alex O'Loughlin. :)

  3. My personal favorites are Sinful Colors Nail Junkie, Hottie, and Call You Later, which I actually just finished wearing. It's such a great green glitter. Oooh Nubar Purple Rain and Petunia Sparkle are gorgeous as well.

  8. Those ice cream polishes are unlike anything I've ever seen! They're also ridiculously cute. Would definitely buy for the bottle alone.

  9. I have a lot of the Sinful ones, and want even more of them now that I've seen them swatched ;) I've been thinking that I should do a post about Unsolved Nail Mysteries, I have a few polishes where I wish I knew the brand, who sold them, where/when they were sold, etc. Your cone polishes seem to fall under the same category. :)

    1. beauxs mom, I got the ice cream cone bottles last year at Meijer. I saw the same type of bottles with bright shimmers in them more recently at an outlet store (I want to say it was Burlington Coat Factory, but that might be wrong).
