Sinful Colors | Nail Polish Collection



Sinful Colors were quite talked about in the 'blogging world' a while ago but I was clearly very late to the party when it came to trying them!

I stood and looked at the stand in Boots on many occasions over the Christmas period but until a few months ago I hadn't ever actually bought any. 

I've now added 3 to my collection however, so I thought I'd share them with you!


'Rise and Shine' shade 940 is a dark green/teal colour in the bottle, however on my nails it pulls a lot more green.
I don't know what it is about green nail polish but I absolutely love it! I have one from Avon which I wore to death a few years ago and so I'm so glad I found this to add to the group.
On the bottle it says that this is a matte shade... now I'm not sure if that's a mis-print or if it's the wrong label but this is absolutely not a matte.
In the bottle you can see a definite blue/silver shimmer; it's subtle but it's definitely there.
I'm not too fussed that it's not a matte though, because I always wear a topcoat which leaves it shiny anyway!
Despite that little error, this is a beautiful colour which is bright enough for Summer but dark enough for Winter so it's an all rounder for me!


'24/7' shade 920 is my favourite nail polish right now! I've been wearing it non-stop for ages.
I don't think any photo will ever do it justice, but it is an acid bright, neon pink and it is stunning.
This has a really, really matte finish which I find can make applying it really hard - I always find matte shades dry too quickly so I have no time to work with it... is that just me?
It can be a little bit streaky but after a couple of coats and a top coat that's not noticeable and even if it is, it's such a bright colour that you can't really tell anyway!

I flippin' love this.


'Let's Talk' shade 926 is a deep but bright purple with a metallic finish.
I really love how this looks in the bottle, it reminds me of the galaxy or something.. it just looks a bit spacey to me.
It's really pretty on the nails too. It's not so metallic that it looks too shiny and tacky but it does have a lovely sheen to it which I really like.
I think this is going to be really nice in Autumn/Winter time as that's when I bring out the shimmery/metallic polish!

For £1.99 I can't recommend these polishes enough! The staying power is really good, with a base and top coat I can get about 5 days without any chipping.
The only down side to them is that they stain like no other nail polish I've ever used before! Seriously, they stain my nails terribly if I don't use a base coat with them, which sometimes I forget to do when I paint my nails... something I can't do anymore! Oops!

I really recommend checking these out if you haven't already. They're £1.99 so they won't break the bank and when I got them they were on a 3for2 deal so I got 3 for less than £4. Bargain!

Have you tried the Sinful Colors polishes?
Which is your favourite?
