Sinful Colors 2018 Walgreen's Exclusive Core Line Color Additions
As many of you know I am a big fan of Sinful Colors nail polish. They offer a wide variety of finishes and colors, most of the time the formula is great and, you can't really beat the price. When I heard they were adding 10 new colors to the core line in 2018 I was excited, not only for the new colors but for the hunt it would take to find them.
You may have noticed the new collections popping up in fewer and fewer places lately which makes finding them a challenge at times. But not to fear after a month of looking and multiple stores searched I have found all 10 colors. I won't be sharing all 10 with you today, just the 4 that are exclusive to Walgreens.
*Also on a side note, my phone case ended up reflecting in my macro shot of Mixed Signals causing the polish to have a pink tint to it. There is no pink tint in this polish, it was just so shiny every effort I made to photograph it showed a reflection*
Holla At Ya Buoy
Color: A deep sky blue creme nail polish.
Application: The formula is nice with a good opacity and smooth, even coverage. I was almost able to get full opacity after one coat. Shown here is two coats plus topcoat.
Holla At Ya Buoy ended up drying a little lighter than I was expecting which I actually really like. It's a pretty shade of blue that I can see myself wearing alone or using as a base for nail art. I do have a suspicion that it will be a stainer though so I recommend using a good base coat or even doubling up on your base coat to avoid any issues.
Color: Dusty lilac purple creme nail polish.
Application: A very smooth formula that self-levels and is very opaque. I only had a slight VNL after one coat. Shown as 2 coats plus topcoat. This polish dries to a very high shine and smooth finish that's similar to a glossy top coat.
Shock Candy dries just a tad darker than what you see in the bottle and I love it. It a nice neutral color but isn't boring. Do you ever put on a polish and immediately get a nail art idea? Well, that's what happened to me to moment this dried on my nails. I love it when that happens. I won't be sharing the nail art today but I will soon so make sure you come back for that.
Color: Silver metallic foil nail polish.
Application: The formula for Mixed Signals is thinner than the rest and applied semi sheerly on the first coat. It does build up nicely and I was able to get full opacity after two coats. Shown as two coats plus top coat.
This color reminds me of Sally Hansen's Celeb City or Zoya's Trixi but with larger particles. Although this looks textured it does dry to a smooth finish. Mixed Signals does suffer from a few brushstrokes which was expected since it is a foil finish. I decided to test a theory during application to see if I could avoid them. On my ring finger, instead of painting on the second coat like normal I applied it with a sponge. It seemed to work but the textured look of the polish made it hard to tell for sure. You can be sure I'll be testing the theory again and will share my results.
Color: Strawberry red nail polish with magenta shimmer.
Application: This one was surprisingly opaque on the first coat with only a slight VNL left after one coat. The formula is great with a smooth easy application and a nice ability to build opacity. Shown as two coats plus top coat.
This is a beautiful color that I really liked with my skin tone. The shimmer adds a little something extra and I like that it's not a true deep red. In some lighting, this color can lean a little more to the pink side than red which makes it a unique color for my collection.
What do you think of the new colors? Are there any that have made your must-have list? My favorites are Shock Candy and Sucker Punch. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
