Sinful Colors Prosecco

Out of a recent collection of mostly re-promotes (like Sinful usually does), this one new and theoretically limited edition shade had us nail bloggers all aflutter:  Prosecco.

Prosecco is a cool, pale taupe packed with a color-shifting shimmer that goes from gold to copper to green.  The shimmer reminds me a lot of the sort found in a few of the OPI James Bond polishes, like On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

It's a little sheer, and not quite watery.  2-3 coats are necessary to get this even, but it cleans up very easily, without a shimmer-fest stuck all over you, though in macros it seems like the shimmers may actually be micro-flakes.

The combination of taupe + metallic flakes reminded me pretty quickly of Orly's Nite Owl, so I pulled out the bottles & swatch sticks for comparison.

Nite Owl is darker and more opaque, and has silver shimmer to Prosecco's greenish gold.  Interestingly enough, the two seem opposite each other to me:  Prosecco is a much cooler color with warm-toned shimmer, while Nite Owl is warmer with cool silver shimmer.

Rating:  3 out of 5 stars.  A pretty, soft neutral, with a nice flash of sparkle.

Where to buy:  Sinful Colors is carried at many drugstores.  There may be some of this left in stores, or you might need to cruise ebay or blog sales.  Thankfully, a lot of SC's LEs end up coming back at some point or another if you missed it the first go-round.
