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!
