たまむし ~ Layering with Sinful Colors

Hello! How are you? Cold? Sorry I haven't posted in awhile... School started and then after that we had some snow and ice. The snow is kind of melting (even though its still freezing cold.) so I can finally stand to be outside to take pictures. The last time I was at Walgreens I picked up a Sinful Colors polish called 'Let Me Go'. I was always curious about since it looked like a pretty, iridescent shade. Its extremely sheer so I layered it over my go-to purple, China Glaze Grape Pop. Grape Pop is my favourite purple because it can look good in one coat if you apply it carefully. It also works nicely with Konad. (Speaking of Konad...I haven't done that in awhile!)

I love green and purple together...this sort of reminds me of Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie. I'm not exactly sure how close it is since I don't own Scrangie (that sounded weird...) but it would be a good cheap alternative. (1.99 at Walgreens)

Speaking of Scrangie...she mentioned her inspiration for the colour was the iridescent wings of a beetle. The Japanese part of the title of this post roughly means "iridescent wings of an insect". I've been trying to learn Japanese for the past few months so I'm using as much of it as possible whenever/wherever I can.

If you have RBL Scrangie let me know how close this layering combination is to the real thing!

Peace and Love,


  1. This looks pretty :) I wish i can learn Japanese one day ^^

  2. These go so well together ! Real pretty miss :) xo

  3. this is wonderful! i have both of these colors so I am dying to try this now thanks!

  4. The pictures do remind me of Scrangie. I think have both of the polishes you used and I definitely have Scrangie; I should do a comparison. Off the top of my head I'd say the base color of Scrangie is warmer than Grape Pop, but I could be way off on that since there are so many colors swirling in my brain at any moment. :)

  5. Thanks everyone! Learning Japanese is fun but really challenging!

    @Karen: Looking at photos of Scrangie it does look warmer, but it appears to be pretty close.
