Sinful Colors Fall Picks!



Hi everyone!  There are so many amazing fall collections out right now, from Butter London to Zoya to Seche Vite's first color line (which I'm kind of stoked to try) but the truth is, you needn't look any further than your local drugstore for some knock-your-socks-off beautiful fall cremes.  
Sinful Colors hasn't been one of my favorite brands, (for one thing, the name kinda bugs me... why Sinful?  What did these polishes do that's so baaaad?  lol) a lot in part because of my conceptions about inconsistent formulas.  But these three, from the fall 2013 Diva collections, have totally changed my mind.  The formulas on all three of these compete with and even beat many higher end brands.

A couple weeks ago, Mommy Does Her Nails and I were out and about chatting about life, and nail polish world and picking up a few pretties in the mean time.  Skylark wasn't one of them.  I had to go back and pick this one up because I couldn't get it out of my head and now I see why my friend's got such an affinity for peachy cremes.  This one's pale and the color of the crayon.  I almost got away with two coats on this one but in the end decided to go with three.  The formula's very slightly streaky but really quite remarkable, especially for a pastel.  It's fun to see another brand bucking tradition and doing soft and light for fall.

Graine de Poivre is gorgeous (and another I had to go back for).  After I brought it home, though, I thought I had myself a dupe for OPI You Don't Know Jacques, but the latter is darker, cooler, and less red.  Graine de Poivre is a warm, almost mauve-y taupe creme, neutral and elegant as all get-out.  I used two coats.

Mesmerize is the color I initially picked up.  I love inky indigo blue shimmers and I was excited to find the shade in creme form.  Sinfuls do kind of confound me... I was doing some research, lool, and discovered that this one had actually been introduced last year, so apparently, it's back, and good thing.  It's rich and edgy and reminiscent of a late October sky.  I used two coats.

Note to self: master the art of photographing cremes in 2014.

I purchased my Sinfuls at Rite Aid but they're also available at Walgreens for $1.99 each.  Their seasonal collections seem to go quickly so if any of these appeal to you, run, don't walk, lol.

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day! ♥♥

    1. You're so sweet :) I seem to recall you having a bad experience with one and then destashing as a result. You totally need GdP in your life, though <3

  2. What's left to master?? You've got it down! These ALL look fantasmic on you, but I'm with Essie...Graine de Poivre is delicious. I'm really loving the SC SinfulShine line too...I picked up another fantastic one but can't get a good pic yet on it. I need to try a regular SC polish! But that name...

  3. I bought my first sinful colors in over a year last week - after getting a few of the leather polishes in a swap I decided I needed more. Honestly, why don't I give them more of a chance? They're pretty great polishes and these 3 are no exception!

    1. You're so sweet :) Dark cremes always feel like my nemesis. I love to wear them, can't stand photographing 'em.

    1. I can't believe they're a US only company! That seems so odd to me, lol. I hope you get the line soon, too, because they're wonderful polishes! Hey, you should write to the company!

    1. Thanks so much, sis ♥ They are all awesome colors! I'm so impressed with the fall collections this year... oh who am I kidding, I look forward all year to the fall collex ;)

  10. I think my problem with Sinful Colors is the bottle. I don't like them! And their displays scramble my brain! Why no color coordinate your display SC?!? lol! I actually really like that blue. I don't think I have any (or at least very many, cause I'm sure I probably have *something*) quite like it.

    And BTW, Seche has 2 or 3 collections out now. Their fall collection isn't the first! But the only color I've tried so far sucked ass! But that's another story, lol.

    1. Oh seriously? Three?! Well I've obvi been paying all sorts of attention. :p I know there's that Northern Lights topper (or is that Out The Door? Perhaps i should shaddup now, lol). I totally agree, SC color coordination would be nice, they're almost as bad as Ulta's Zoya core displays. Thanks for stopping by :D

    1. Aren't they ? :) I'm so impressed with SCs right now (and maybe a little obsessed, lol).

  12. I have skylark and honestly it applies like it's a 10 dollar polish. So 1.99 is heck yeah worth it! I'm not really a brown person ( I have like 1 brown ) but the one you swatched matches you so nicely. I have to go on a hunt for that blue!

    1. It does! It's one of the nicest pastel polishes ever. I'm not really into brown, either, but this one has nice mauvey, dusty undertones so that makes it a-ok, lol :)

  13. I was reluctant to try Sinful Colors because it is so cheap but now it's my favorite of the cheaper brands (even better than Sally Hansen). It dries nicely and doesn't chip as easily and quickly as other brands. I've been looking for a navy blue for the fall and it looks like I'll be going out to get Mesmerize ASAP. Right now my favorite color from them is Nirvana.

    1. Awesome! I'd choose SC over SH any day (unless you put the old Nail Prisms in front of me, then all bets are off :) ). SC cremes do wear remarkably.
