SinfulShine Picante swatch from SinfulColors & comparison

My video probably illustrates the color comparison “Picante” of Sinful Colors new Sinful Shine line to the other colors I have. I didn’t really mean to buy something so similar to other nail polishes I own.

Picante IS a high shine gloss nail polish but I’m not sure yet if I’m sold on this line of SinfulShine polishes. The colors are amazing and they ARE glossy but I had an issue with my first application getting fabric texture from my sheets on them after waiting over an hour and a half before going to bed. You can see it in some of these swatches below but again you can probably see it best in the video above.

Some more photos of the other shade available from the Sinful Shine (or is that “Sinfulshine”) line of polishes by Sinful Colors:

Colors I think I’m tempted to buy:

  • Most Sinful – an incredibly vibrant electric blue unlike any other blue I’ve ever seen.
  • My Kryptonite – a deep teal. I’ve seen a couple of other brands with similar shades but not many this deep.
  • Royal Flush – a raspberry magenta color that matches several shirts I own
  • In the Limelight – not exactly lime and not exactly kelly green. I’m loving greens but I don’t end up wearing them much – they seem kinda awkward on my fingernails.
  • There are a couple of pinks that are interesting but several of them are so similar, like “Tan Lines” and “Sailor’s Delight”, that it’s hard to choose.

Have you bought any of these and what are your thoughts? Did I have a freak application that ended up textured by my sheets?

Sinful Colors Thimbleberry vs Essie Boat House vs Zoya Elodie – Matches, mismatches, dups & swatches

I love Essie “Boat House” which is a lovely coral color that isn’t too harsh. But it’s an older Essie color (and no longer available) and it’s one of the worst nail polishes I own in terms of chipping. I think this may be the case with older Essie colors. And it seems like there was some sort of formula change at some point because I’ve only had problems with some clearance Essie polishes I purchased over the summer.

So I’ve been on the lookout for other colors I could replace it with. I already owned Sinful Colors “Thimbleberry” but it’s a little bit darker than the Essie and not quite close enough (though fairly close.)

So when the Zoya three free promo happened, I went through my spoons and double checked colors online and picked out Zoya’s “Elodie” to try and replace “Boat House” with. Swatched it looks like the perfect dup which makes me happy. I have yet to try it out to see about chipping but I’ve not had any problems with that on Zoya polishes (matte polishes on the other hand simply don’t last as long but that’s a different story.)
