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!
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you’re all enjoying family time, or even just a nice break from work, and entirely too much food.
I’m at home at my parents for a week, so I’ll be using this precious time to just loaf around, eat a lot of cookies, and write a lot of posts. That’s right, I’m getting AHEAD in writing my posts. (I say this now, we’ll see how I do). So yes, that means lots of posts will be coming up, or at least they’ll be consistent in posting.
But today, we’re talking about a super festive collection, the China Glaze Holiday 2018 collection. This is full of lots of sparkle and shimmers and grinchy goodness.
I’m here, drinking spiked hot chocolate so I apologize in advance for any wayward commas or comments. I’m honestly just here living my best life.
So let’s just get right into the swatches already.
Y’all, it’s a huge collection, so I promise I won’t talk too much. But be ready for lots of posts coming up soon. I’m going to be at my parents house for a week for the holidays, so when I’m not annoying them and eating their food, I’m going to be working on writing up as many posts as I can and getting them ready to post. So be ready. (Sorry in advance, Mom and Dad).
Alright that’s enough rambling because we have a big-ass collection to get into today. This is the OPI Holiday 2018 collection which is inspired by the newest Nutcracker movie that came out. This is their traditional 12 shades, but 3 glitter toppers for a whopping 15 bottle group. I know right. BUT WE’LL GET THROUGH IT TOGETHER. There’s a ton of polishes and photos to get into, so let’s just do this.
It’s the first of the holiday collection posts on their way! And it’s only fitting that it’s a ‘Christmas Classics’ collection.
This is the new holiday collection from Sista Chic Lacquer. As always, I’ll be open that this collection was provided to me for review, but of course, all opinions are my own, and I promise to only provide my honest thoughts and feelings. Disclaimer that has to always be put out there. (I did also buy some shades on my own recently, and will be putting up swatches of those as well!)
Now onto the collection. This is the ‘Christmas Classics’ collection, and it’s a 7 piece collection based on essential Christmas movies and songs. There are 5 polishes and then 2 toppers. These will release on December 1st on Sista Chic’s Etsy store for $10 each. Find them here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/sistachiclacquer
