sinful colors polish review 1Woohoo! Great news: The famous Sinful Colors have finally made it to Australia!!!

Sad news: most shops have already sold out. I was lucky to discover a stand with all the colors in at my local Target. Sometimes living away from civilization can work to your advantage.

As a true fan of all things shiny I picked up 3 shimmering shades: Courtney Orange – orange, #926 HD Nails – emerald and #298 Under 18 – red. They are very beautiful shimmering shades that go on your nails nicely. Swatches say it all! They would suit pale or tanned skin. Perfect for holidays and beyond!

However, I wouldn’t describe my experience with Sinful Colors as 100% satisfactory… Why?

Finish: Shimmer, very glossy.

Formula: Very sheer and quite liquid. To achieve full coverage you’d need at least 3 coats. It also takes very long time to dry even with a fast dry top coat. However, it slides on evenly without leaving strokes – a great thing for a shimmering polish.

Brush: Thin. It requires some skill to be able to apply it flawlessly.

Nail Art: great as a base, but not for tape manicures. I tried and all three polishes got attached to the sticky tape and came off my nails in flakes (that never happened to me before with any other polishes and I’ve tried many). Also, due to a very sheer formula, you most likely you won’t be able to use them to paint on other colors. However, these polishes would be great for gradient nail art.

Additional Notes: unfortunately Sinful Colors polish can stain your nails. That happened to me and the red polish produced the worst stains.

Sinful Colors shimmering polishes overall impression: Beautiful shimmer nail polish in stand out shades that is best used alone. Its downfalls are outweighed by low price and very pretty unique colours.

Available: $4.95 p/bottle in Australia from Target & Priceline, app. $1.99 in USA here.

    It must suck so much how cosmetics are priced in Australia, why are they 2-3x more expensive, always?? Sinful colors is a super budget brand here in the US for like $2 in drugstores >: You must pay $5 in AU?

    I have a few of these that I especially like, “Forget now” and “Glass pink”. Both are totally girly colors but look great. Forget now is particularly good for pedicures (:

    Great review!

    Sinful Colors is a brand that I absolutely love, but whenever I buy a new one I expect something to be wrong with it that way when it is I’m not super disappointed. Usually it’s something I can get over like the brush or the formula being a little hard to work with and sometimes there’s nothing wrong and I feel like I hit the jackpot! That being said I usually buy my Sinfuls on sale for $1 so unless they’re absolutely unwearable they’re a good bargain. I can understand not being so in love if I had to pay much more than that.
