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.

SinfulColors Nail Colour in Mint Apple, swatch

Throwback Thursday! SinfulColors — Mint Apple (Nail Colour) Swatch & Review

Brand: SinfulColors

Today’s Throwback Thursday polish is Mint Apple (947), which I first posted about last week.

I don’t actually know when it was first released, but it has reviews on MUA going back to 2010, so it’s at least that old. It remains in Sinful’s core collection.

It’s a happy-looking light jade green with icy silver shimmer. Super pretty, and only a couple of bucks at the drugstore. What’s not to like?

The formula is reasonably easy to apply and fully opaque with two coats.

I think this is a unique enough color to pick up, considering how inexpensive it is!

fivezero, 3 Spring Nail Favorites (Collaboration)

3 Spring Nail Favorites (Collaboration)

Today, my blog is dipping a toe into uncharted territory! This is my first ever collaboration, with the lovely Kanza of Faded Rouge. We’re each sharing three favorite nail colors for the spring.

I’ll review each of these selections in more detail later this week, but here are my current top 3 picks for delightful, spring-inspired nail colors! I’ve selected them from Orly, SinfulColors, and Zoya.

Coming into spring from the icy winter, I always love pastels and brights on the nail, with a touch of crisp sparkle.

SinfulColors Nail Colour in Wonder Mint, swatch

Throwback Thursday! SinfulColors — Wonder Mint (Nail Colour) Swatch & Review

Brand: SinfulColors

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Throwback Thursday post! I don’t know when Wonder Mint (1599) was first released, but the color code indicates that it’s from quite a while back, so I’m gonna say it qualifies.

The color is a little misnamed, in my opinion. It’s more of a robin’s egg blue than a mint green. Wonder Mint is like a brighter version of China Glaze For Audrey, and it’s bluer in sunlight, since warmer indoor light makes it look more green. The color is a pastel, but it’s just punchy enough to avoid a chalky appearance.

Haulage! (Feb & Mar 2017)

Since I don’t have a car, it can be pretty hard for me to get to warehouse sales and discounters out in suburbia, which is why is an online store I love to shop at for cheap nail polish and other makeup items. A lot of it is discontinued stuff, as well, so it’s a good source for harder-to-find products and shades.

I’ve also had nothing but positive experiences with the shop—with my most recent order, I experienced a technical browser error, and their customer service dealt with it superbly. My orders always come well-packed and the items are always in fine condition.

Here are my combined two most recent orders, from February and March, made partly because I found out that my favorite drugstore foundation (Revlon Nearly Naked in Nude) was discontinued last year and I wanted to stock up.

All prices are in CA$.
