SinfulColors Holiday 2011 Swatches and Review

I'm back,at least for a bit,with swatches of the SinfulColors Holiday selection. These polishes are super inexpensive and can be found at your local Walgreens for only $1.99 each.

First up is Midnight Blue,a bold bright twist on navy. 

This is a really nice blue shimmer.I found the application was very smooth,and covered very easily in two coats. 

The second one I have for you is Last Chance,an emerald creme  with depth and allure. 

This one also had easy application. It covered in one coat,but I did two for good measure. It was a little hard to capture on film,because it kept wanting to show up black on my camera. 

Next is Out of This World,a perfect silver with swirls of glimmer. 

I found this one to also have easy application.It was still sheer after two coats,but I didn't mind the little bit of VNL. This has to be one of my favorites of the bunch. It's a very snowy silver.I couldn't stop staring at my nails,while wearing it! 

Next is Daddy's Girl,a deep purple jelly with a drizzle of shimmer and glitter. 

Easy application as well.It went on sheerly at first,but after three coats it was opaque.The neat thing about this one is that with each coat,I kept staring at the glitter bits in the polish.It's just too pretty to capture it's full beauty.With purple being my all time favorite color,this was easily another one of my faves of the bunch,and the glitter kicked it  up a notch or two! 

Next is one of the art brushes that came with this set,it's called Flower Girl, a bronzy gold with tons of sparkle. It's not meant to be worn as a polish but here it is fully swatched.

I suppose you could wear it as a polish,as the glitter is very dense. 

Lastly I have Sugar Sugar ,a candy cane red hot tint.

This one I wore as my holiday mani,with the gold art brush,however I didn't get any photos of me actually wearing it.It's a gorgeous red shimmer,perfect for the holiday! Here you also see SinfulColors Fashionista, 
a glitter laden pewter,swatched in one thick stripe over the red.Fashionista is a silver glitter in a clear base.I found it difficult to make it opaque.It was not as densely packed as Flower Girl. 

In conclusion, I believe there are some nice colors in this Holiday collection,however,I know at least two of these are re-promotes,such as Daddy's Girl and Last Chance.I hadn't ever heard of the other three polishes,as I do not own alot of SinfulColors brand. I do believe they have a very nice formula,for a drugstore brand polish,and with a price point of $1.99 each,I don't believe these can be beat. I do want to mention though,that it would be nice if Sinful Colors would make more NEW COLORS. I do know that there were a few new colors that came out last year with Sinful Adventure Island,which was near dupe collection in response to OPI's Stranger Tides collection. There have also been a couple of new colors introduced into the line sporadically like Winterberry  and Unicorn.Those are just a few that I know of. 

I think all of us would like to see the new SinfulColors collections released with ALL NEW  colors,instead of constantly re-promoting the shades in their core line. I feel like I may be on the verge of a lecture here,so I will leave it at that :-)
