Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Pink Sparkle Review and Swatches (very pic heavy!)

Next up for Sinful sparkles: Pink Sparkle.  It's exactly what it sounds like, you'll be shocked to hear.

Like Nail Junkie, Pink Sparkle is thick, though I don't think it's quite as bad as NJ.  Attempting opacity with Pink Sparkle isn't realistic, but 2 coats is sufficient for sparklecity; 1 coat could be enough if you're fine with not having a pink tint.

It's more demure than Nail Junkie, and could be workable for those who like their sparkle less obvious.  I really like it, and I think it's one of the more versatile polishes in my collection.  

See my review of Nail Junkie for info about application and removal.

What do you think of Pink Sparkle?  Do you like it better than Nail Junkie?
