Sinful Colors - Athens - Swatch

Athens from Sinful Colors, is from their Cast Away 2012 spring collection.  A medium, dusty, teal creme, this polish has a great formula. Smooth, nicely pigmented, not too thick and not too thin, this could have been a thick one coater.  Two other teals are in this collection, Greek Isles and Be Happy; Athens is the darkest of the three.  To give you an idea, Athens is a shade darker than China Glaze's For Audrey. 

I included various photos because the color seems a bit too green to me in photos, and not true to color.  In person its a little bit more grey and a bit more blue than in these photos.  Athens is really a pretty color and is definitely one of my favorites!  Below is two coats, because I'm a bit fastidious. 

In my dining room, against chocolate walls, this picture to me seems more color accurate.

A little less brighter than the first photo.

Up against China Glaze's For Audrey.
I used China Glaze's strong adhesion base coat, two coats of Athens, one coat of Revlon's quick dry top coat.  Athens was $1.99 at Walgreens.  Bargain!

Love this color, I can't stop staring at it!
