I used to cover Sinful Colors all the time but after their big blogger drama I tapered off a bit. Since it appears they have fixed things with those bloggers (at least to me knowledge!) I have been branching back into the brand. I got some new shades from target recently & then picked up these two shades from Walgreens for $2.99 each. I’m glad I did!
Application on these was the same so I’ll just cover it here! Each polish is 2 coats, not base or top coat. These definitely have a different formula & tons more shine. I wore Alfresco for about 4 days with minimal chipping so I was way impressed! That’s when I went out & bought Mardi Gras & did my swatches! These also both have superfine hidden shimmer but I think it more brightens the shade rather than making it look like a shimmer. They are definitely creams. Note that the handles are also different: instead of black they are a metallic.
Sinful Shine in Alfresco- This shade is a lovely, soft cornflower blue with maybe a touch of Carolina blue. In some lights, you almost see a touch of periwinkle. I love this shade & it is definitely flattering.
Sinful Shine in Mardi Gras- This honestly doesn’t say Mardi Gras to me at all but whatever. I love this shade, it is a nice melon. I think it is slightly more muted than in my photos.
I’m definitely surprised with the quality of these shades & I’ll be investing in more! The finish was lovely & the wear time better than average. Have you tried anything from the Sinful Shine line from Sinful Colors yet? Any shades I need to get my hands on?
