Love is in the air! Or at least, lots of new nail polish releases, and that’s basically the same thing.
Sinful Colors is just pooping out collections, and I can’t say I don’t love it. I’m going to do my best to get as many collections up here as I can, as they come into my store, so you can keep track of them all! So be ready for all sorts of collections coming up – Kandee Johnson ‘Anime’ Collection, the St. Patrick’s Day collection, as well as other spring collections that I’ve seen little previews of. SO MANY NEW POLISHES.
But for today I have the Sinful Colors Valentine’s Day collection for 2017! This is a collection of 8 polishes – 4 new original polishes, and 4 re-promotes from previous times. I’m going to have the 4 new polishes first, then the 4 re-promotes.
The first nail post of 2017 is here! I know there’s been a lot of makeup lately, but I’m going back to where I started – with Sinful Colors. You can always count on me reviewing the newest Sinful Colors collections here (provided I find them in my Walgreens).
Today I have the Kandee Johnson ‘Pretty Vintage’ collection! As soon as I saw advertising for this, I basically ran to my Walgreens to snatch it up. I had to have it. Now Kandee Johnson has 2 collections out with Sinful Colors – this is the ‘Pretty Vintage’ one full of cream colors. The other is the ‘Vintage Anime’ and had more glitters.
This collection is a collaboration with, obviously, YouTuber Kandee Johnson. Kandee is so absolutely talented, and just seems like such a lovely person, so I was very excited to see these, especially when I saw the colors! This is a 12 color collection, but I was able to find 7 of the shades that are in the most popular display – apparently the others are a little hard to find. If I ever find them, I’ll be sure to update the post. *UPDATE* I found one of the full displays that has all 12 shades on it, so I have the full collection now! I’ll start with the first 7, and then put the newest ones I’m found at the end.
I’m going to go in numerical order for these ones, so let’s just hop right in! Onto the swatches!
CHRISTMAS. EXCITEMENT. That’s right, the holidays are just around the corner, including the best holiday of all, Thanksgiving. And this means, holiday collections and holiday nail polishes.
I found the display with the new Sinful Color’s holiday polishes just hanging out at the end of one of the aisles at my Walgreens and snatched.
As for trying to figure out exactly what polishes were technically in this collection or new, it was a little difficult. I went off of the shades advertised on Sinful Color’s Instagram to see what was exactly new. If you look on their website, they have more colors listed underneath the ‘Santa Bae’ section but I think the 8 I have here are the new shades for this year. I have a couple of the older shades as well that I’ll compare at the end.
I have 8 new shades to show you. Now onto the swatches!
My Walgreens finally got the Halloween display up! Hallelujer. I was stalking Walgreens just waiting until they did, and praise Jeebus, they finally did.
One of the girls who works at Walgreens is in my art theory class. And the other day she leaned over and said to me “I hope this isn’t creepy, but we just got a bunch of new Halloween nail polishes in. I know that’s your thing.” I’ve made it guys. She officially knows I’m nail polish crazy. I didn’t have the heart to tell her I had already found them.
This collection also includes a solid black, and solid white cream, as well as the normal glow-in-the-dark top coat that they put out every year, but I didn’t pick these up, as I didn’t feel the need to.
I have not been able to find ‘Deja Boo’ around at all (it seems to be a problem for others as well) – but if I happen to, I’ll be sure to update this post, as well as indicate in the title. Otherwise I have the other 8 shades here to show you!
Now there are 9 colors (that aren’t the plain black & white), including the famous ‘Deja Boo’ promoted as this collection, so I picked those up, although there are more companion shades in the display with it. But I have swatches and a review of the main 8, as well as one dupe shade as well at the end of the post!
I have the next newest collection from Sinful Colors! This one is called ‘Fashion Flash’. It has 8 polishes, and all of them have the ‘Luxe Fragments’ sticker on their cap. They’re all $2 each. I found these all at Walgreens.
I found all of these have the same formula really. They’re all a jelly base with differently colored shimmers, glitters and flakes, or “luxe fragments” throughout. They all take 2-3 coats to get opaque depending on how thick of coats you use. And because it’s a jelly formula, I’ve found that it will take a little longer to dry than normal creams, especially if you put on a thicker layer. The flakes distribute evenly without having to place them, and they don’t stick up really. Because there are flakes, it doesn’t dry textured, but it is bumpy. I also found that these dry semi-matte, so you’ll need a top coat to really bring out the shine and dimension. Removal isn’t as terrible as a normal glitter, but because you do have those flakes, they can take a little scrubbing, and I did get glitter everywhere after removal. Something to keep in mind.
2 new Sinful Colors collections popped up at my Walgreens (it was like Christmas, really), so of course I needed them all. I picked this full collection up first, and then a review of the other collection will be up in the next coming weeks!
This particular collection is called ‘Sinful Illusions’. There are 8 shades. All of them are labeled with the limited edition ‘Iridescent Color’ sticker. And it means that all of them have a beautiful iridescent shimmer throughout that makes them so unique.
I’m not sure if this collection is in the Sinful Shine line or not. They have the silver, instead of matte black, cap, and they ring up for $3 instead, but they don’t say “Sinful Shine” on the bottle like the others in the line do. So it just might be a super special collection.
According to Sinful Colors Instagram, the official release for these is September 1st – these popped up early at my Walgreens, so check and they might be available now.
I picked up all 8 shades and I’m going to go in numerical order for this, so let’s get right into it.
I was over at Walgreens looking for the new back to school collection from Wet N Wild. My Walgreens didn’t have it yet, but they did have this collection from Sinful Colors.
Now, I’m not going to lie. I had seen this for a while and hadn’t picked it up because of the ‘Camo’ name. (All my experiences of Camo were from my small town high school and I wasn’t ready to revisit that). But I finally caved, and bought the whole collection, as the glitters included really intrigued me. And I mean, it’s Sinful Colors so the whole thing was only $16 to pick up.
