This polish was part of the original launch of the Kylie Jenner and Sinful Color collaboration, back in March 2016. The official name of the collection was called King Kylie Collection:
I’m not a fan of the Kardashian / Jenner clan, but when a colour calls out to me, I set aside my personal differences. 😛
The formula is from the Sinful Shine range, which touts gel-like shine, compared to their regular line. The King Kylie collection featured a lot of blingy shades:
Of course, I got one of the more tame colours. I also picked up “Slay Grey”.
On Sinful Colors’ site, they describe the shade Karamel as:
Kandy is dandy, but this warm neutral color is an indulgence you just gotta bite into.
Let me get my disdain for the name out of the way. Karamel with a “K”!?! I know, I know, they do everything with a “K” – it’s crazy. Or should I say, Krazy. 🙄 Did you see in the promo photo up top, it read “See the Kollection”? Whose throat do I need to punch to make this stop? Moving on…
I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it on the blog before, but I’m a little fixated on the colour of Britney Spears’ bodysuit from her Toxic video:
… as a nail polish shade. I call it “erothereal nude”. 😉 I’m constantly on the hunt for a polish shade that emulates the look of that body suit: a peachy nude with lots of sparkle.
The shade Karamel fit the bill – a putty peachy shade with gold and silver shimmers. 😀
The formula of this polish is fantastic – it’s a one coat wonder!
Another coat gives it better opacity and shine:
The shimmer is understated but does translates well from bottle to nails:
This polish wore incredibly well – not a chip in sight, only minor tip wear and growth at the base:
I was worried the glitter in the polish would pose a challenge to remove, but it wasn’t the case.
The base colour isn’t overly warm or cool – I think this could suit a wide variety of skin tones.
The random item featured today is a leftover tube of Rockets candy from last Halloween:
If you’re American, you are probably yelling at the screen “Those are SMARTIES!” And you would be correct. They’re the same thing – the Canadian version is called Rockets because the candy name Smarties was already taken:
I don’t think the Smarties chocolates are available in the US. They’re similar to M&Ms but crunchier.
I’m not sure if countries outside of North America have their own version of these Rocket / Smarties candies:
They’re fun to eat – crunchy tablets of pure sugar. As kids, we used to pretend they were pills. 😛
