If I was ever at all worried that we weren’t getting new Sinful Colors release, this one certainly soothed me for the next months. Sinful Colors put a finger to my lips, said shhhh child, and then deposited TWENTY new polishes into my hands. THAT’S RIGHT, 20 POLISHES TO LOOK AT TODAY. As you can imagine, this post is an absolute tome of a post, collecting together all 20 shades, with swatches, live swatches and notes on formulas for all, so I’ll keep this intro as short as possible.

This is the ‘Candy Wonderland’ collection from Sinful Colors for Winter 2021. This is a release of 20 polishes (have I mentioned it’s 20 yet) divided into 4 sub-collections, with different finishes. These are Target exclusives, and you can find them in store as well as on Target’s website. They all retail for $2.99 each, always affordable Sinful Colors, and GREAT for someone like me who’s insane and buying all 20 shades. Like I said we have 4 different categories of finishes – they’re described more under each heading, so I won’t take the time here, let’s just get into it! ONTO THE NOVEL.

Sinful Colors x Saweetie ‘Made on Mars’ Halloween 2021 Collection – Swatches & Review

Alright listen, I absolutely love when brands put out a special Halloween collection, and I think there should be more every year. It’s when even mainstream brands aren’t afraid to experiment and bring out unique finishes and polishes, and there’s never enough of that. Gimme the weird. At least China Glaze always gets the memo, and most years, so does Sinful Colors. And it’s one of those years, we are blessed.

Y’all know how much I love Sinful Colors – they’ve been on this blog from the very BEGINNING, and I’m so glad we’re still here together 5 years later. I remember way back when I first started blogging, and the first Halloween release I picked up from them. It’s one I still love! They’re one that often puts out interesting finishes and themed collections all year round, but ESPECIALLY at Halloween time, and this group is no exception.

This is the ‘Made on Mars’ collection, and it features 4 space themed shades in collaboration with Saweetie. They’ve had quite a few collections with Saweetie this year, and this is their newest in creative finishes. This is 4 shimmery shades that dry to a more matte finish, as well with an interesting, bumpy, almost moon rock texture. They all have stickers that say “Extraterrestrial Effects” and they’re not wrong. These won’t be for everyone, but if you love some weird, keep on reading.

I grabbed these from Walmart’s website. They seem to be out of stock individually, but you can still buy the pack of 4 polishes + a sheet of alien themed nail stickers for under $10. I never feel badly about recommending an entire collection when it’s this affordable.

I, of course, included live swatches of each shade. These ones are super interesting as they apply much differently than you’ll think based on the final product, and the look in the bottle. It’s also the first instance I’ve seen of wide brushes on a Sinful Colors polish, and I hope that continues because it made application even better. Let’s dive on in already!

Sinful Colors x Saweetie ‘Vacay Vibes’ 2021 Collection – Swatches & Review

If you’ve been around this blog for any amount of time, you’ll know just how much I love Sinful Colors. They’re the brand I really started my blog and Instagram on, and the first collections I would review. They were cheap so college me could snatch up every release they put out and still afford to eat that week. And that hasn’t changed even now when I have more of a nail polish budget as an adult with a full-time job. I’ll always grab anything Sinful Colors puts out.

So OF COURSE, I had to grab this newest release. This is the ‘Vacay Vibes’ collection, a 6 piece bright and warm color palette perfect for summer. It’s another collaboration with Saweetie, who they’ve collaborated with for multiple collections this year.

I grabbed this collection from Walmart’s website – you can only buy the full 6 piece collection, but these are super affordable, so it’s not bad at all. Ever since Sinful Colors dropped out of Walgreens it has been harder to find them, so I appreciate when I can still grab them online!

So alright, let’s get into these shades!

Sinful Colors ‘Essenchills’ Collection – Swatches & Review

If you’ve been here since the very beginning, I’m talking the VERY beginning, you’ll know that I started this blog on a foundation of reviewing Sinful Color releases. Back then I didn’t even do nail swatches – my first few posts features up close photos of the polishes on a swatch wheel. I went from using random patches of sunlight through my bedroom window, to a desk lamp, to a lightbox. And through all of these upgrades and updates, there have been Sinful Colors collections!

So I was so excited when they dropped 2 new full collections this year! We have the Essenchills in this post, and coming up next, we’ll look at the Sheer Mattes collection. No matter what I’m always so excited to see what they’re releasing, and of course I’ll get my hands on it to show you all!

As mentioned, this is the Essenchills collection! As mentioned on the Sinful Colors website “Create omazing nails with Essenchills, the Zen and on trend assortment of aromatic nail polishes inspired by the chillest self care rituals like bath salts and incense—because we all deserve time to relax and pamper ourselves”. So there you have it, we have 9 shades based on various self care items, from lavender, to matcha, to himalayan pink salt. And each shade is scented like the item it’s based on.

8 of the shades can be found on Amazon, through Target and various other grocery stores, as well as Walmart. (I even found them at Jewel-Osco, which is the larger grocery store chain here in Illinois, so peruse while you’re getting groceries). Now, one of these shades, So Matcha Better, is a Walmart exclusive, and is available only through that retailer. Sinful Colors likes to do this and really just make me work to hunt down that one shade, and they KNOW I’LL DO IT EVERY TIME. Anyways, I got the 8 shades from my local Target, and a lovely polish pal sent me the last shade! They have a more permanent location on the Target and Walmart shelves so it seems like these are either fully permanent to the line or at least sticking around for a while!

Each shade retails for $2-$3 depending on the retailer – they’re $2.39 on Target’s website. Always so affordable!

Alright enough talking, let’s get right into the swatches already!

Sinful Colors ‘Quick Bliss’ Shades – Swatches & Review

Another edition of swatching through a collection I had for too long and never reviewed! This time it’s the Sinful Colors Quick Bliss polishes. These released in early 2020, and I did pick them up later in the year and just hadn’t swatched them. These are a more permanent release, and you can still find them where Sinful Colors are sold – in Walmart, Target, and other drugstores.

From the Sinful Colors website they describe these as “Get going in a minute with SinfulColors® Quick Bliss collection of six fast-dry nail polishes spiked with sweet Cherry Oil. Enjoy highly seductive juicy colors with shimmer and shine that deliver full coverage and protection in one coat.” So it’s a quicker drying polish with Cherry oil supposed to hydrate the nails. I’m not sure how much quick drying I noticed, but overall they were easy formulas to work with!

There are 9 shades total, and I have 8 here to talk about. The last shade was out of stock at the time I ordered and I just never picked it up. It’s a warmer-toned pink called ‘Juicy’. But we’ll look at the other 8 today! These retail for $2.98 each, and as always with any Sinful Colors polish, is super affordable. Let’s get into the swatches!

Sinful Colors Sweet & Salty Collection – Swatches & Review

Hellllooo how’s everyone doing lately? Memorial Day is coming up which means instead of being on my computer all day doing work, I can be on my computer all day playing the Sims. And okay, blogging too. I’m honestly a little excited to be able to knock out a lot of swatches and posts that day – we’ll see how well I follow through on that one.

But in other news, WE HAVE FOOD THEMED AND SCENTED POLISHES ON THE BLOG TODAY. That’s right, you heard me. We’re looking at the Sinful Colors Sweet & Salty collection today which is 6 polishes all themed after various foods. I purchased these off of the Walmart website. (It shows the pack as currently out of stock, but there’s an option to get an in-stock alert). These are also available in store as well. The small city Walmart near me never gets in the limited edition collections, so I was so happy to find these online and get them delivered, because as we all know, I like to collect everything Sinful Colors. They retail for $3 each, or the pack was about $15 for me.

These were also just so weird that I needed them. Gimme all the weird polishes thank you.

As mentioned these are all based on various food items. We have 3 “sweet” polishes and 3 “salty” polishes and I’m just so excited just looking at them.

And of course, they’re scented. (The caps say “avoid mouth contact” which is the funniest way to say “don’t eat these” I’ve ever seen).. They have either sweet or salty scents based on the thing they’re based on. I’m not going to lie, I started laughing out loud when I smelled the first one because it was just such an entertaining concept. Alright, I’ve been teasing it enough now, let’s get into the actual polishes.

Sinful Colors Sporty Brights – Swatches & Review

Helllllo everyone! Everyone’s all fully aware of what’s happening in the world right now, and I have no better information than all of the medical professionals, so I don’t want to make this blog about it. I want to keep posting about nail polish since I know everyone needs a little escape from the madness around us! A little distraction from everything! And I mean, I’ll be working from home indefinitely right now, so I have a lot of extra time, so it’s the perfect way to spend it by catching up and putting out a lot of reviews and posts.

I know this post came a little later than planned – I definitely have had to adjust to my new schedule. I had too little structure, and needed to give myself a schedule and routine. Or maybe I just needed a little break from everything. Either way, I’m back in and excited again, and definitely want to get back to blogging regularly!

So alright, let’s talk about these beautiful polishes already, shall we? Because this is an exciting post. It’s exciting because it’s the first new Sinful Colors collection of the year!

If you’ve read my other posts about the brand, you’ll know that Sinful Colors was the first brand that I really started my blog on! And ever since 2016 when I started this blog, I’ve collected every release that has come out. They’ll always have a sentimental place in my heart, and forever a place on this blog, so I’m always so excited when I have new shades to talk about!

This collection here is called the ‘Sporty Brights’ collection. It features 8 bright shades all with a “sneaker like texture” which means they dry down more satin-matte with a bumpy and rubbery finish. It’s not super textured, so it won’t be catching on anything, but of course, you’ll definitely notice it. It’ll just be lil bumps, like rubbing a tennis shoe. Sinful Colors is always releasing such interesting finishes, and this is no exception.

I was sent my collection by the lovely ladies in the Sinfully Polished group as always – they always have my back with these Walmart exclusive collections (who would have thought I would miss large Walmarts living in Chicago!). As mentioned, these are available in Walmart and Target stores (I know that’s definitely hard to get to right now). There are 5 shades available on Target’s website, and Walmart has them available to pick up as well. One of the shades, Track $tar, is a Walmart exclusive.

Now let’s get into the swatches!

Sinful Colors Wicked Neons Halloween 2019

Halloween is right around the corner, and I’m very excited! What is your costume this year? It also means we have Halloween nail polishes to talk about! Including…

NEW SINFUL COLORSSSSS!!! If you all don’t know (and idk how you don’t as I mention it with every Sinful Colors post) but Sinful Colors is the brand I started my blog on, and at this point I’ve basically been able to swatch and post about every collection they’ve released since then, so they have a little sentimental place in my heart and always will.

So I always get too excited when they release something new. But they’re constantly coming out with new and unique finishes for such an affordable price, so can you blame me?

And I think you know where this is all going, WE HAVE A NEW SINFUL COLORS COLLECTION TO TALK ABOUT. We have 8 new polishes released in their ‘Wicked Neon’ collection for Halloween 2019. It contains 4 neon shades, and 4 toppers. This is once again in collaboration with Bebe Rexha, and 3 of the shades have the little sticker ‘Bebe’s Shade’ on them: ‘W*tch Please’, ‘Blue in the Dark’ and ‘Glow For It’. The rest of the caps have ‘Blacklight Technology’ on them. (I don’t show them in the blacklight, but I linked Accio Nail’s post down below where she does!)

I found these at Walmart in a large display and they were $1.99 each! Let’s get into the shades!

Sinful Colors x Bebe Rexha ‘Velvet Obsession’ Collection

At this point in time, every time I go back to my parents house in Michigan, they fully expect and understand that I’ll disappear at some point, on an adventure to Walmart for Walmart exclusive polishes and makeup. They might not quite get it, but at this point they no longer question it. Who would have ever thought I would miss Walmart while living in Chicago?

Most of the time on these quests, it’s to find the newest Sinful Colors collection, and this last visit was no different. I zoomed on over and almost gasped audibly when I found the display, and snatched all the colors up with my little grabby hands.

The collection I’m talking about, and that we’re looking at today, is the new collection from Sinful Colors in collaboration with Bebe Rexha. It’s called ‘Velvet Obsession’ and features 8 shades with a “Velvet Matte Finish”. 3 of the shades, ‘Glam N Roses, ‘Dark Romance’ and ‘Twisted Obsession’, have the sticker “Bebe’s Shade” on them, and I believe those are the 3 Bebe helped to create herself.

They’re in frosted bottles, and I’m a sucker for any sort of frosted bottle. I’m like the -Homer Simpson voice- “Mmmmm, frosted bottles”. They just look so classy.

These can be found exclusively at Walmart stores right now. I do wish they were online like their other collections, but definitely look for the displays at your Walmart store. They retailed for $2.99 each.

Let’s get right into the colors!

Sinful Colors Pride Collection 2019

Happy Pride month everyone! Pride Fest is this weekend in Chicago! I live right next to Boystown as well, and I went over to the festival with friends yesterday and had a blast. There were people everywhere, tons of entertainment and food, and a lovely space for everyone to just have fun and be themselves. Loved it! The Pride parade is next weekend as well – Chicago’s is always a huge event, but unfortunately I’ll be out of town visiting friends. I hope I can see it next year, and hope it’s an amazing day for everyone and the community! Are you going to any Pride events this month?

And with that, I have the Sinful Colors Pride 2019 collection to talk about today!

This collection makes me a little sentimental. I purchased one of the Sinful Colors Pride collections way back in the day (like 2017) – the one of all creams. And it was one of the first collections I reviewed on this blog! It was even before I did full nail swatches – I just showed the shades over my swatch wheel in natural daylight coming in through the window! I had barely figured out focus, lighting or blogging, but I just wanted to talk about polish. I thought the post was still up to link to it, but I can’t find it unfortunately, I must have taken it down. But I remember typing it on up! Crazy how much has changed in the 2 years of the blog (and my life) since then – my nails, lighting and posting have all gotten better!

There has been released at least one other Pride collection in between this, with similar sparkly shades in different colors, but I wasn’t at a point where I was buying as much polish then. So this is my first Pride collection from Sinful in a while, and I’m so glad to have another! They’re always so fun. They’ve also been posting work in collaboration with different LGBTQIA+ on their Instagram to celebrate! Happy Pride!

Now for the collection. As always, it’s a 6 piece collection. It features a rainbow of glittery shades, and they all have a #Pride sticker on their caps. These have been available since before June, and I’ve read that it’s a permanent collection you’ll be able to purchase long after Pride month. I got these off of Amazon. They’re currently $16 for all 6 shades + a highlighter (which I’ll talk about before the shades). I have not seen these available for purchase individually, and haven’t heard of them being available in stores – but Walmart has had other collections so it’s possible they’ll show up there.
