This is the most I’ve written in a week, and lemme tell you, it feels good. I’m still on a roll working through the mountain of posts that have built up (most of them are sitting on my desk back at my apartment), and it’s feeling so good to cross them all slowly off the list. These are all overdue, but it’s better late than never, and you can still find these products around. So let’s just keep going and get right into the post.
It’s another new Sinful Colors collection. This is another collection in collaboration with Vanessa Hudgens with 12 wintery shades. (Apparently there’s another summer collection from her that’s been slowly making its way over from Australia… hmmm… what’re you up to Vanessa..)
Right now I have the first 5 that have been released and spotted (also muled in to me, the Facebook group I’m in really enables me too much). If I’m able to find the next 7, I’ll be sure to add them to the post and update it. They’ve been found in Meijer stores, and apparently the next 7 will be too.
But let’s look at these 5 wintery shades that we have right now. Onto the swatches.
I went on a monstrous swatch fest before I left for home so I would have lots of things to post with my free time. In that time, I swatched up TWO Sinful Colors collections to talk about. Look at me actually getting work done. Wild, I know.
Sinful Colors has been a little quieter this 2nd half of the year, and unfortunately they’ve been a little harder to find. I hope this means they’re just planning something big in the next upcoming year. Keeping that optimism since they were the brand I really started my blog with, and the one brand I love to pick up every new collection fun. They always have such unique finishes as such affordable prices, and I don’t know how I would feel if they left me.
But we’re not thinking about this, it’s never been said that’s happening. Instead, we’re looking at some new polishes for the holiday season!
This is the ‘Jingle Jells’ collection. It’s a group of 4 polishes labeled with ‘Jelly Topper’ stickers. They’re more jelly like bases with metallic glitter pieces all throughout.
I had these muled in from one of my sources, since they hadn’t shown up anywhere near me. However, they have been found at Rite-Aid and Big Lots (2 stores we either don’t have, or don’t have a ton of in Illinois)! They’re the normal $1.99 price as their permanent range.
Since these are labeled as ‘Jelly Toppers’, I showed them all here as 1 coat over a base shade, to show them off as toppers. I also have swatches of them built up on their own underneath as well! These all have similar formulas – they’re a more jelly finish, so they’re more sheer, but most can be built up on their own as well. They’re smooth, and distribute the glitters easily with just 1 coat, without having to place the pieces. Some are thicker than others, which I talk about, so let’s just get into the colors!
Right on time for Halloween! I’m not late, I’m right on time, right? This is what I tell myself. And of course, what I always tell you guys is sometimes I get busy. It happens. But here I am with the last Halloween collection review for Halloween.
So lemme get right into it? Take a shot every time I’ve said right this post already.
Honestly, Sinful Colors makes some of my favorite Halloween polishes that I have. They have such unique finishes and aren’t afraid to try something different, so I always look forward to them each year.
These hadn’t come into any Walgreens, but I happened to stumble upon a full display in Meijer when I was at my parents house for a weekend. (Yes, I specifically made sure to go to the Meijer while I was home that weekend to look for polish, is that so wrong. I told my mom that and she said she would have looked for me, what a peach).
There are 4 new shades for this year’s collection, so let’s get right into them!
Hellllloooo! I’ve been busy. This past weekend I stood in the wedding of one of my very best friends as she married the love of her life. I almost teared up from being so happy, and it was one of the best weekends ever. How was yours? That’s right the beginning of this blog will always be where I push my personal life onto you, because if you forgot this is my blog.
But of course, now it’s time for nail polish, your torture is over.
Fall is fully here, and it’s getting chillier and chillier down here. And all I want to wear is darker vampy colors! And have I got a collection for that.
This is the ‘Radical Mattes’ collection from Sinful Colors. There are 7 main ‘matte’ shades that can be found in Walgreens – and then 3 other shades that I wasn’t able to find (apparently they popped up in Meijer, a store we don’t have down here in Illinois). So I have the 7 main shades and the matte top coat to talk about here! Let’s just get right into it.
These were $2.99 instead of the normal $1.99. Again, since they’re a limited collection they’re a little pricier. Let’s just get right into them.
Normally Sinful Colors is putting out 25 (slight exaggeration) collections every year, so I notice when there’s a little lull in new polishes from them. The last big release was the Vanessa Hudgens collection and that seems like forever ago now. They didn’t put out a 4th of July collection, so when I saw teasers of these neons, I got so excited.
Just Sinful Colors, take my money.
This is the ‘Wild At Heart’ collection, and it features 6 limited edition Neon shades, as well as a white base and top coat. I found these in a display at Walgreens. These retail for $2.99 instead of the normal $2. They do this for the special collections, so I wasn’t surprised.
Well, it’s been a while. I’ve missed you all. I feel weird not posting in so long. But you know, life got busy. I’ve got a full time job + freelancing on the side, besides this blog, so sometimes the posts just don’t happen. But I miss it! I missed posting, and I hate not posting regularly. So here we go, prepare for all the posts. I’ve got a lot to make up for.
So here we’re starting with a little small one. This might be a little old news, but these are still beautiful polishes, and there’s a chance you can still find them out at a Walgreens or a Rite Aid (or have a lovely person send them to you when you don’t have a Rite Aid anywhere near you).
This is a small little collection from Sinful Colors, called ‘Boho Beat’. It’s made up of 3 new shades. (There’s more Sinful collections on the way as well).
We only got 3 polishes to swatch here, so let’s just get right into it!
Look at Sinful Colors just popping out collections again. With this many collections in a year, they’re going to fill up my Helmers so quickly. I’ll complain, but I’ll continue buying every single thing they ever do. It’s fine. Very healthy.
Anyways, they suddenly dropped this Vanessa Hudgens Festival collection on us. Like bam! There it is. They also did something different with this collection, and it was available at Ulta. You should be able to still find the big display up at Ulta stores (although apparently they might also be in the clearance bin already, so some hunting might be required). Or you can also buy most of the polishes on Ulta.com!
But I found them! This is a 12 piece collection, but I have 11 here currently. Sinful Colors did that thing where they released all but 1, and made that last shade, ‘Shimmy Shimmy’, a dark blue, a more hard to find one. I get it, but it’s also annoying. Anyway, I’ll of course update this when I have the last one, but for now I really wanted to get this up for the 11 that are available now.
It’s a full collection of shimmers and bright colors, so let’s just get into it!
