Sinful Colors - Kismet Elated (another more optimistic go)!

I've used this colour in a mani before (click) back on the 18th June. At the time I was slightly disappointed with it because the colour didn't pop as much as I thought it would. It looked like a dull sort of colour that my nan would have work back in the 60's. It was too sheer even after 3 coats and I could still see vnl!

This afternoon I was looking through some swatches of SC online and came across Kismet Elated. They looked quite nice so I thought I should swatch it again properly and give it a fair go.

Strangely enough, it was the complete opposite of last time I used it! It applied really smoothly, was opaque in 2 coats and I really like the vibrancy of the colour now! It's a lot more on the purple side than it was last time I used it and I could actually see the gold micro-shimmer in it!
Is that weird? Why did I see it completely different and disliked it 3 months ago?!

Pin It


  1. It looks great! Maybe it got a bit thicker and the consistency is better for you now. Maybe you shook it now and didn't do it three months ago, maybe... Well, the important thing is you like it now. And I think it looks very pretty on you.

  2. This is a gorgeous colour and it's definitely deeper than in your last pics- so weird! xx
