My Experience with Sephora Collection Color Hit Nail Polish in Hot and Spicy, Voodoo Doll, Picnic In The Park, Psychedelic, Dinner for 2, Will You Jump?:
Well, I can’t take my eyes off these cute little bottles. Each and every shade is gorgeous with small, cute bottle and portable brush applicator. I adore its small and wide brush applicator which gives neat and fine application with every use. I travelled across countries with a carton full of nail polishes which explains that they are not only cute, but quite sturdy, durable and travel friendly too.
Personally, I always gravitate for orange, cobalt, green or earthy shades. You know better, right? But, for a change, I bought gorgeous pinks and pastels too which you will discover soon! Let me introduce these cuties one by one.
1. Hot and Spicy
As the name suggests, it resembles a hot & tangy chilli sauce we usually get in every restaurant here. It is a true orange to be precise, though it comes out slightly translucent on nails. But, still workable. We need at least 2 swipes for buildable coverage and finish. It does stay for good 5+ days with glossy shine, though it is the first shade to chip off after a week or so.
I feel the consistency has to be blamed for translucent finish as it is quite runny in nature unlike other shades. Though, it does not feather or give uneven finish on my nails. I think this is my first orange which will get lowest preference for me. Probably I will skip it next time.
2. Voodoo Doll
Well, one of my favorite and brightest purple mixed blue milky shade. Though, it is also slightly translucent in terms of pigmentation, it gives buildable coverage and glossy finish with just two swipes without looking goopy or streaky at times.
It is quite creamy in consistency, but it does not look goopy at all. It stays on & on for 2-3 weeks and the glossy shine does stay for more than 5 days which explains all its claims are nearly true for this particular shade. It dries up pretty fast and we need again 2 swipes for buildable finish and shine. I might get it again.
3. Picnic In The Park
A milky green shade which is, again, runny in consistency, but workable on nails. It also gives nearly 80-85% color pay off on nails and might be tricky for deeply stained nails. It is somewhat in middle of pastel and regular green color such that it does not make our skin look darker than usual, but it does not enhance our skin tone either.
I like this unique green in my stash which stays put for good 15 days and after that chipping off while the glossy sheen fades pretty faster. It does not feel goopy or settle around the corners of my cuticles despite being runny in nature. I am yet to decide if I will get it again, perhaps yes for its unique shade.
A milky, lavender shade which surprisingly compliments our medium-fair skin tone. It has perfect consistency – neither too runny nor too thick, just apt to give milky and glossy lavender pigmentation on nails. It gives full coverage and streak free glossy finish on nails without being goopy or drying.
I still need a second gentle swipe for ultimate finish while it delivers full color with a single swipe. It stays for good 10-15 days there by chipping from corners which still looks manageable. The glossy sheen stays put forever, to my surprise. It is real gem right from the shade to its texture and finish on nails apart from staying power. I will definitely get it again & again.
5. Dinner For 2
A bright, magenta-pink, creamy nail lacquer which instantly amplifies my skin tone. A perfect summery shade, must say. It is a non-shimmery creamy nail polish with perfect consistency – not so thin not so goopy to give streak free finish on our nails. It gives sheer to medium color pay off in first swipe, hence we need at least 2-3 swipes for perfect glossy and opaque finish.
It stays for good 10-15 days there by chipping off from corner of nail cuticles which is pretty manageable. It is a perfect girly shade for all year round. In fact, it compliments my age group and skin tone very well. I would definitely get it again for springs and winters even.
6. Will You Jump?
One of my least favorite cobalt blue nail lacquers with slightly translucent finish even after double swipes. However, it is manageable provided our nails are not previously stained. The consistency of this cobalt blue shade is bit runny, but not streaky. It gives streak free even finish on nails with glossy shine which stays put for certainly more than 5 days, though it does tend to chip off quite early after 10-12 days. But, it still does what it claims to do. I love cobalt blues, but I do have brilliant cobalt nail lacquers in my stash, hence I would not get this beauty again.
Overall, I am really impressed by quality, quantity and finish of these colorful gorgeous shades on my skin, irrespective of their thin/thick texture or brush applicator. I adore their brush in general which is bit broad and short to paint every nook & corner of my nails with no hustle-bustle.
Even the staying power of nail lacquers is more than 5 days which certainly proves that they are worth trying. Economically, these bottles last for good months even if we change them every alternate or every day! Leaving few shades aside, I feel it is worth every penny.
