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.

Sinful Colors ‘Sinful Mattes’ Collection

PURCHASED

My life is constantly saying I’ll catch up on popular shows and movies that I probably should have watched by now (see Game of Thrones), but I keep going back to shows that I’ve either watched, or don’t at all have to pay attention to – especially when writing these posts. Currently what’s been on in the background while I’ve been blogging has been It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and 90 Day Fiancé. What are your “background” shows? I know we all have em so we don’t have to listen to the sounds of our quiet studio apartment. If I had a way to stop time, I would use it to catch up on all my shows and movies. And I guess, you know, to blog. I’m kidding, I would do both at the same time.

Enough wasting your precious Netflix time with a long intro, let’s get you into this blog post shall we?

Like I’ve said before, Sinful Colors has been putting out lots of new collections this year, and I am so happy because it really fulfills my requirement to buy 70 million new Sinful Colors a year. I just want to get my grabby hands on all the new polishes they put out. And as I’ve said before, it’s more exciting because you can buy these polishes online! They’re stocked on Amazon (and fully in stock and worked out in that way) as well as on Walmart’s website and it’s so much nicer to talk about polishes that you know, you can actually find. And if you don’t want to order online, they’ve also been popping up in Walmart stores.

This is the ‘Sinful Mattes’ collection, and as you can guess, contains 6 bright matte shades. The 6 pack retails for $16 currently and includes 5 of the shades and their matte top coat. Onto swatches!

Sinful Colors x Vanessa Hudgens ‘Cosmic Dreams’ Collection

PURCHASED

You know, sometimes you feel like you’re finally starting to get yourself together, you’ve got to-do lists you’re crossing off and scheduling out things and just getting it done and feeling like a true adult. And then you lose your bus pass after you told yourself not to leave it in your pocket because you would lose it. I’m trying my best here. Either way I had a fun field trip to the customer service office to get a new one. Adult life is about the small adventures.

Shall we talk about this collection then? At least I can pretend to have it together with my nails and in the swatches, right?

***

And with this collection, we can talk about this more exciting thing! I bought this collection online. That’s right. I didn’t have to madly search stores, or get them shipped in from other polish fanatics. I could order them right on Amazon! Sinful Colors listened to feedback and is now offering their newer collections online for purchase through an Amazon store. It’s so much easier for me to recommend and show them to you when I can point you to a website to buy them!

You can only buy the full 6 piece collection right now for $18 here, and hopefully individual shades come in soon online as well! It’s a process as they’re figuring out selling online for the first time, so I’m still happy that the polishes are available in the first place. Slow and steady progress.

Update: It also sounds like they’ll be popping up at Walmarts with the other new collections this year, so keep a look out for them!

***

Now, this particular collection. This is the newest collaboration with Vanessa Hudgens. This is 3rd U.S. collection they’ve released in collaboration with her now (there were a couple Australia only collections as well that I heard whispers about).

This is the ‘Cosmic Dreams’ collection and features 6 shimmery space themed shades. There are 2 other shades that have popped up, but I’m not sure where they’re available – as mentioned above it sounds like they’ll be popping up at Walmart, so I’ll update the post if I’m able to snag them.

Let’s get on into these pretties!
