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.
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.
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.
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 SaleEvent.ca 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.
Finally, to round off the new Spring 2017 SinfulColors collections, here are two sets released in collaboration with celebrity makeup artist Kandee Johnson. All the shades are sugar-textured, matte, holographic, or iridescent.
