Sinful Colors ‘Conjured Color’ Halloween 2018 Collection

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!

China Glaze ‘Paint it Black’ Halloween 2018 Collection

It’s almost Halloween! What are you planning to be this year? I plan on going as a duo with my best friend as Walter and the Dude from the Big Lebowski. I can’t wait to spend the night in a vest and yellow tinted sunglasses to be quite honest.

I love Halloween, so of course I love when there are themed polishes. Why do we always skip right from fall to Holiday?? There are very important holidays in between. Thank God, China Glaze has been coming out with their Halloween collections. I’m so sad I wasn’t fully collecting polishes yet for their older ones, but it’ll be something that’ll truly haunt me this holiday.

When I first saw pictures of this years, however, I was so intrigued and knew I had to have it. I mean, a whole collection of black polishes? Count me in. Perfect when I’m feeling angsty.

This is the ‘Paint it Black’ collection, and it’s a 6 piece set for Halloween, all with polishes of different black bases and finishes. Enough rambling, let’s get right into the swatches.

Sista Chic Laquer – Fall & Halloween 2018 Collections

It’s a little bit of a different post today! It might be a little longer, and a little chattier. But ya know, all the info is important, so I do recommend a read. (I mean, of course I recommend a read of all my posts, hah!)

Today, I’m talking about Sista Chic Lacquer, and that’s right, it’s an indie brand – or that is, made by an independent maker. I know I haven’t talked about indies before – I’ll be honest that with my more limited budget, I can stick with mainstream releases – it’s also why I can’t review every single makeup product that comes out. The world of indies is so large, and diverse, but I hope that someday soon with a larger budget I can really crack into them and start adding them into posts. For now, these are my first!

I know indie polish can seem more expensive – but that is because you are literally paying for smaller batches of polishes made by one creator. So it makes sense. But they’re right about the same pricing as Essie and OPI.

These polishes in particular have been gifted to me for review.

I know, this is my first post like this, with a gifted polish, or even product in general. I love to give any new polish brand a fair shot, and to constantly test out and try new things, and will review any polishes I buy or that I’m lucky enough to receive. As always, I’ll be sure to be honest and tell you when they’ve been provided for review – that’s so crazy to say! This is my first sample and I’m still so grateful for it! And of course, even though it’s been provided to me, I’ll always give an honest review, and won’t let that sway me in just reviewing the formulas in general. Just a little disclaimer. I pride myself on always being honest and open with my thoughts, and I won’t let that change.

Now that that disclaimer is over and out, let’s talk about this brand. Sista Chic Lacquer is made by @sistachic1 on Instagram. I will admit that I hadn’t seen her brand before she reached out to me, but I was glad to find them.

The brand’s motto is “Polish with a Purpose”, with part of all of their sales going to support Project Rescue, an organization that rescues sexually trafficked women and children. That part immediately caught my eye, and made me eager to try out these polishes. I love a wonderful cause like this, and you know pretty polish is just a bonus.

I have two smaller collections to talk about today, and wanted to just combine them into one post – since they’re releasing at the same time, and since I wanted to talk about the brand as a whole at first.

So let’s get into talking about the polish itself!

Like I said I have two collections to talk about – the ‘Harvest Moon’ Fall 2018 collection is 4 polishes, and then there is the ‘Monster Mash’ Halloween 2018 trio. These all release on October 1st on https://www.etsy.com/shop/sistachiclacquer and will retail for $9 each.

Now that I’ve written my small novel – let’s get into swatches.
