SinfulColors Summer 2017 collections

New Releases: SinfulColors (Summer 2017)

I’m always forgetting to post about SinfulColors collections, mostly because it’s hard for me to find new Sinful collections where I am (only the core collection is easily available). Come on, Sinful! You’ve got Revlon’s distribution behind you and I still can’t find your LE displays?!

Anyway, I’m posting summer and fall collections in two batches. This post contains the Summer 2017 collections. Obviously, this is late—and these collections have already disappeared from the SinfulColors website!—but you may still be able to find the displays and collections near you.

China Glaze x My Little Pony collection (Summer 2017)

New Release: China Glaze — My Little Pony “Color Is Magic” (Summer 2017)

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Summer, My Little Pony “Color Is Magic”

I never knew I needed this. China Glaze’s new Summer 2017 collection is a collaboration with Hasbro’s My Little Pony.

I don’t actually watch the newer cartoon, but I did watch the original—yeah, I’m old school. I never had many toys as a kid, but I did have at least two My Little Ponies: I remember a white Pegasus-type and a coral unicorn. (This Moondancer unicorn does look extremely familiar, though, so maybe they were both unicorns—or I had a third pony.) My mom recently packed up a bunch of my old toys and brought them to me, and one of my ponies survived all these years:

Hasbro My Little Pony (1980s) Speedy G1 Year 4
How’s this for a Throwback Thursday post?

I just looked up my pony and apparently her name is Speedy, and she’s from the Twinkle Eyed Ponies collection released in Hasbro’s My Little Pony G1 line, Year 4 (circa 1985–86). Now that I look at the original packaging in that link, I totally remember that yellow star/rainbow comb!

Oh crap look at this. I definitely had three ponies. Moondancer, Speedy, and this Pegasus, Firefly. Ahhhh what a trip down memory lane. I wonder what ever happened to the other two.

I will always prefer the vintage pony design to the new one, but I understand that the new one is super popular. Still, this reminds me that I really need to watch the Brony documentary

Anyway, the new collection consists of 12 + 2 new shades in a range of shades and finishes.

As the authority on nail colour, China Glaze has taken center stage at NYFW alongside the most coveted designers in the industry. Notably, our Spring/Summer 2016 collaboration with DEGEN featured nails inspired by the ever-enchanting My Little Pony. This match made in fashion week heaven was the prelude to a pony-filled collaboration with Hasbro that we like to call Colour is Magic….

China Glaze™ Collaboration

A whimsical, fashion-forward palette inspired by the charming personalities of the iconic ponies intertwined with the spirit of the exceptionally unique CG shade selection.

Twelve shades make up the main collection; another two shades make up a limited edition Songbird Serenade Kit:

Post a Quote Challenge: Day 1

Stashmatters has tagged me to do the Post a Quote Challenge!

The rules are simple: post a quote each day for three days, and tag another blogger to do it each day.

First, I am tagging: The Sock Mistress!

I’m not really into motivational quotes and the like, so I’ll just pick a few of my favorite lines from movies and TV.

You wouldn’t recognise a subtle plan
if it painted itself purple and danced naked
on top of a harpsichord, singing,
“Subtle plans are here again!”

Chanel — Laque Rouge (Le Vernis) Swatch & Review

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Laque Rouge

Collection: Chanel Fall/Winter 2014, Les Rouges Culte de Chanel

Laque Rouge was released late last year as part of Chanel’s limited edition Les Rouges Culte collection, which consisted of three vintage red polishes that were cult classics for Chanel in the 1980s.

Red cremes are definitely my favorite nail polishes, and Laque Rouge is an excellent addition to my unreasonably large collection!
