Don't like textures? Some Blue Persuasion might change your mind!

Hi, guys! I'm actually somewhere with a working internet for a change, so I thought I’d do this quick post featuring the gorgeous Sinful Colors Blue Persuasion. Blue Persuasion is one of the colors in the recent Crystal Crush textured collection from the Sinful Colors.

As you may recall, I hate the texture trend and was sure I’d never buy another texture. However, multidimensional textures like Blue Persuasion and recent releases from Zoya and OPI have me rethinking my position. I still don’t like textures, but love the contrast between a gorgeous base color and contrasting glitters, which lots of these recent textures have done beautifully. As a result, I now own 5 more textured polishes. But fear not, fellow haters, I haven’t lost my mind; I have every intention of topcoating all of them, LOL!

I wore Sinful Colors Blue Persuasion as a gradient tip on one hand, but also included it as part of a skittle look on another hand. Check out both looks, after the jump!

Here’s Sinful Colors Blue Persuasion used as the glitter in a gradient. I started with 2 coats of the bright purple polish That’s Shore Bright, from China Glaze’s recent Sunsational collection. Then I used a sponge to add a bit of Blue Persuasion to the tips of my fingers.

On my left, hand, I tried a different look .I had recently bought Sinful Colors Treasure Chest along with Blue Persuasion, and wanted to try it on my tips. So I used Treasure Chest and Blue Persuasion on 2 fingers, and then looked for non textured polishes that would be similar. I think I struck gold with Orly High On Hope. I think the blue base and pink shimmer is very comparable to the blue base and pink glitter in Blue Persuasion. For Emerald Envy, I chose a similar color in my collection of Island Girl polishes, a color named Waikiki Surf.  How do you think these colors look together?
