Del Sol- Heartbreaker

I went to Walgreens on Wednesday to take advantage of the great Sinful Colors sale they have going on. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, they are having a sale where Sinful Colors polishes are 99 cents with a coupon...awesome! You can print the coupon out on Walgreens.com =)

While I was there I decided to buy another Del Sol polish, I wasn't to thrilled with the last one but I decided to give it another shot with a different shade and finish. I picked up Heartbreaker, a jelly looking red packed with glitter. I mostly wanted the color that it changed into which is supposed to be a nice purple. Well ladies, I am still underwhelmed and disappointed by Del Sol. Application was okay, the polish is on the sheer side but after 3 coats the coverage is pretty good. I like the color change on this one more than the previous Del Sol I tried. I do have to say the polish once again failed to deliver on what the bottle shows the change to be. I'd like to know what the people who make this polish are smoking when they put the flower on the bottle showing the color change because it obviously looks absolutely nothing like that.

To sum this up, this polish is okay...the color change does happen but don't expect it to be anywhere close to the little flower on the bottle. Would I buy this again? No, if I am paying $7.99 for a bottle of polish I expect better results.

I have on 3 coats of Del Sol- Heartbreaker and 1 coat of CND Speedy. First picture was taken in natural light, second out in the bright sun.


  1. I have to say, I really like the color. The before and after. I'd buy this one, after seeing your pics. However, if I picked one up, thinking it would be the color on the bottle, and it wasn't, I'd be annoyed as well. That's not cool. While I do think the color is pretty, I agree that it does not look like the flower on the bottle. I don't have any of Del Sol, and I've never seen them at Walgreens! Are they new at your store? Or have they always carried them?

  2. I like the color too, but I am mostly annoyed that it doesn't change to what it says it will...false advertising lol!!

    Not sure how new they are, I don't go to Walgreens very much. The first time I saw them was a couple weeks ago and the display looked full so maybe they haven't been around too long

  3. Oh, I completely understand. Trust me. I've been there. I hate it when that happens! At least you do like the color. Sucks it wasn't what you thought though.

    Thanks for the info. I haven't seen them around here, but I'm def. going to keep my eye out for them.
