More Sinful polishes for Spring 2017! It’s mind-boggling to me how many collections they do.
Bayou Babes consists of 5 new shades and 3 repromotes in the SinfulShine with Gel Tech line. I Ain’t Jambalayan is my new favorite polish name and is instantly on my wishlist!
Nola Way (glittering gold)
I Ain’t Jambalayan (ragin’ Cajun coral with spicy gold shimmer)
Flambeaux Pink (sparkling hot pink)
Blue Bayou (sparkling aqua)
Bayou Bae (shimmering bright purple)
Shine Annie (Repromote; shimmering red)
My Kryptonite (Repromote; green to envy)
Most Sinful (Repromote; royalest blue)
Nola Way, I Ain’t Jambalayan, Flambeaux Pink
Blue Bayou, Bayou Bae, Shine Annie (repromote)
My Kryptonite (repromote), Most Sinful (repromote)
Chic Chicas consists of 6 new shades and 3 repromotes in the regular Nail Color line. I Ain’t Jambalayan is my new favorite polish name and is instantly on my wishlist! Cash Out is, amusingly, a “repromote” from Spring 2017’s unthemed collection. Maybe they couldn’t think up another Spanish pun? I guess the unthemed collection is probably core, though.Read More »
I’m just posting more SinfulColors spring collections today, because this week has been utterly crap on a personal level. Peanut started preschool last week—he took to it like a duck to water—but it unfortunately coincided with loads of the kids there getting over an illness. Needless to say, he fell ill over the weekend and as of last night, everyone in our family has it! We’re all congested and miserable, Family Day was a bust, Peanut has missed school all week, and the kids won’t stop whining and generally behaving like mini-tyrants. I think everyone slept a grand total of four hours last night, due to the kids constantly waking up because of fever (low-grade, thankfully) and congestion.
I am lucky at the moment, because the stars have aligned and both of my little monsters are napping at the same time, so I put this post together.
Enjoy these pretties.
SinfulColors recently released a set of new shades in their regular Nail Color line. Also, I missed posting about their Valentine’s Day collection, so here it is, as well. I imagine the collection is still available in stores!
All New Colors consists of 5 new shades and 5 Walgreens exclusives (boo for us without access to Walgreens!) in the regular Nail Color line.
The Full Monte (nude with subtle sparkle)
Bluz Cruz (vibrant purple-blue)
Cash Out (pop of pastel green)
Taupe is Dope! (sophisticated suede)
Bitten (juicy red cream)
So Daupe! (Walgreens exclusive; soft light brown)
Jam Out (Walgreens exclusive; strawberry with a funky green flash)
Jade Kat (Walgreens exclusive; shimmering emerald green)
Today’s polish, Argyle Street, is a 5 mL mini that I got in a set last fall. The formula is one of Nails Inc.’s many, inconsistently named Nail Fuel polishes, which include random ingredients from popular “superfoods” and other trendy substances.
This particular line is called Gel Effect All Fired Up Nail Polish, or All Fired Up Fuelled by Charcoal Gel Effect Nail Polish, or…I don’t know. Some retailers just label it as Charcoal Nail Polish, too.
Activated charcoal is an ingredient that has been popping up in skincare and haircare products. It’s normally used in water filters and other purification systems, since it adsorbs a variety of organic and inorganic impurities. Nails Inc. claim their charcoal polish will “protect your nails against harmful pollutants”. They don’t tell us what kinds of pollutants these might be, of course. Frankly, if the charcoal is mixed in with the polish and just hardens into it, I don’t see how it’ll be doing much adsorption of various substances from your nails (or is it adsorbing substances from the polish itself? Heh).
Anyway, Argyle Street is an opaque, soft pastel pink with a peachy undertone. It’s quite a lovely neutral for warm-toned skin. Incidentally, in this creamy polish, I see zero hint of black charcoal. Can charcoal be ground finely enough that it’s not visible in a pastel-colored nail polish? I’m curious!
