KelBel Cosmestics - Sookie St. James

Happy Saturday!  I have another gem from KelBel Cosmetics for you today, Sookie St. James.  KelBel describes this polish as:  Named after the original Sookie, Sookie St. James of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. She's the clumsy chef, business partner, and best friend of Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls.  This burnt red orange glitter polish was named after Sookie St. James because of her red orange hair and kooky personality.  I really love red glitter and the endless possibilies that it holds for an awesome manicure.  So I choose to show it over three different polishes and also 2 coats alone.  
Pointer:  Color Club Gingerbread Man
Middle:  butter LONDON Saucy Jack
Ring:  Sinful Colors Let's Talk
Pinkie:  Two coats of Sookie St. James

Direct sunlight

My camera lost it's mind over Let's Talk.  Let's Talk is a bright purple shimmer and my camera could really only see blue.  The third picture is in direct sunlight to try and show real color.  This was as close as I could get.  I actually like every finger!  The gold is perfect for a holiday accent nail.  The red gives that plain red creme an extra special something and purple and red?  One my of my favorite color combos EVER.  KelBel says that Sookie St. James is not opaque on it's own but I think if I used three thin coats, I would have full coverage.   

Pros:  Even though it's one color glitter in a clear base, I think it's original in it's simplicty and I like that.

Cons:  The formula was a little on the thick side but not unmanageable.
Overall:  A great addition to my glitter collection!

KelBel Cosmestics are available on Etsy and retail for $8.50 for a full size and $4.50 for a mini.
