Sinful Colors Sugar Rush
Sugar Rush is a powder blue creme and took 3 coats to become opaque. The brush was cut unevenly so I couldn't make crisp lines. The formula was creamy and easy to apply. Though the first coat was sort of sheer, the opacity build up with the second coat. The third coat was applied to cover up some patches. It leveled out well, drying in an average length of time and with a nice shine.
Candy Lacquer Sugar Skulls
Sugar Skulls contains "white and pink hearts mixed with golden yellow flowers and various sizes of hex glitters in white, pink, teal, golden yellow, pale green and opal". I layered it over Sinful Colors Sugar Rush. I fell in love with Sugar Skulls after seeing Kellie Gonzo's swatch and ended up stalking Candy Lacquer's site until I purchased it. The base wasn't thick so the application wasn't as troublesome as it could have been. I had to fish for the flower and heart glitters, but couldn't get any of the white hearts. The unusually shaped glitters didn't lie flatly on the nail. (They might if you have flat nails though.) Fortunately, they didn't catch on anything. To get a more uniform look, I had to place the glitter myself. Dabbing was necessary and made the dry time slow. I used top coat here to smooth the surface. Even though there were clearly application problems, I still very much adore Sugar Skulls.
