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!

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.
