Sinful Colors Rich In Heart and Sweet Dreams

I just love all the glitters I’ve tried recently, but sometimes it’s lovely just to put on a good, old-fashioned simple shimmer or glassfleck. These two Sinfuls hit the right spot for me, even if they’re very different from one another. One is a gorgeous vampy shimmer, the other is a beautiful, crisp glassfleck. I got them both in swaps, and I was positively surprised by both of them.

Sinful Colors Rich In Heart is a deep, dark red vampy shimmer. It reminds me of red wine, the color changes from a deep red to a mahogany brown at times. Such a sexy polish, I love it! I wanted to layer something over it, but I ended up wearing it for four days alone, because it’s such a stunner.

Sinful Colors Sweet Dreams is a blue-green polish with lots of fine silver glassfleck shimmer. It’s from the Girls in Pearls collection, which also contains this summer’s hit Cinderella. This is a very cute and summery color, it reminds me of a cool and soothing swimming pool.

Both of the polishes had a very nice formula, and they were both opaque in two coats. I love the Sinful brush, it’s flat and firm, I think it’s perfect!

Which “staple” polishes do you love to wear between glitterbombs?

 

The ABCs: V for Variety Pack

I’m sorry that this post is so late, but when I got to V in the alphabet, I was faced with the same dilemma as earlier, I didn’t have an untried polish starting with V. So instead of doing a rerun of Zoya Valerie, I decided to do a random spam post, or a “Variety Pack” as it were. Since I had to wear and swatch a bunch of stuff for this post, it took a little while longer, but I hope it’s worth waiting for!

I won’t say much about these polishes, I’ll just let the pictures do most of the talking. Enjoy!

The ABCs: F for Frenzy

With my latest Cherry Culture haul I picked up Sinful Colors Frenzy, I guess mostly to fill up the package. I thought it looked awesome in pics, but when I tried it, I wasn’t too thrilled. This is a polish with pink and blue-green fine glitter in a sheer base, a very pretty color combination. I guess I’m spoiled by dense glitter like the Milani one-coaters, but when I needed four coats and there’s still not full coverage, I get a little frowny.

Please be aware that this polish isn’t as blue as these pictures make it seem, it was a nightmare to photograph with both purpleish-pink and tealish-blue glitter! The pink glitter is quite color accurate, but the blue is definitely more green than this.

Frenzy is easy enough to apply, but as I said, I’ve used four coats and the coverage isn’t impressive. I’d only recommend this for layering.

I’ve bought this polish from Cherry Culture, where Sinful Colors are sold for $2.50 a bottle.
