(Annstah, this one is for you!)
Right before I started up Persistently Polished, Annie over at NAILSTAH posted this review of China Glaze's Pink Chiffon. (Of course, her review only made me want it. *facepalm*) Sinful Colors' Timbleberry was brought up as a possible dupe, and was suggested as a possible dupe for China Glaze's Sugar High from the Up and Away collection as well.
I think that both Pink Chiffon and Sugar High are similar pinks, so I can't at all blame anyone for feeling like one polish could dupe both.
I put Timbleberry on last night in hopes that it would come close to Annie's super pretty Pink Chiffon. Unfortunately, it isn't even close.
A word of apology for the glitter all up in my cuticles in the pictures. lol The last post I made about the struggle with Slamming Red? That's what's left of it. After that disappointment, I didn't feel like going at my poor nails with an orange stick.
I'll admit that in some pictures, it does look pinkish. This direct sun picture brings out some interesting tones in Timbleberry. But make sure you take a good peep at the picture below with the polish's name sticker and my thumb. That seems closest to real life.
This polish is a bright, almost neon color. Unlike a neon polish, though, it dries with a shine. :) I would consider it a coral, but it very much has a red base rather than pink.
This wasn't an overly pigmented polish, but it was far from sheer. Two coats was perfect. It was a little thick, but I imagine it was just the bottle I got.
Maybe it's just me, but it seems darker in this picture. Which is overall more accurate.
And just for comparison, I took a couple more pictures.
This is Timbleberry next to China Glaze's Sugar High.
And here's Timbleberry next to High Hopes.
(Both Sugar High and High Hopes are from the China Glaze Up and Away collection)
Almost the same, right? :D
The photos don't seem to show that High Hopes is subtly lighter than Timbleberry, but if you're not a stickler for owning the name brand, you can save yourself a few bucks. :)
Thanks for reading!
